I'm not the most adventurous person (tad of an understatement!), so when my boyfriend suggested that we have a day out at Siam Park, Tenerife's water park, I was a tad apprehensive. Me and water aren't the happiest mix, so I wasn't expecting much from the day.
However, going there was probably the best idea we'd had all holiday - I had a great day, and it forced me way out of my comfort zone, which made me feel accomplished as well as having fun. Although there were a few setbacks to the day - I may have yanked my nose piercing out on the second ride, and had to be seen by a first aider (whoops) - the rides and the man-made beach on-site was a perfect way to spend a hot day in the sun. One word of warning: sun cream, sun cream, sun cream! It was the only day that the combo of factor 50 sun lotion and my pasty white skin couldn't cope, and I burnt fairly badly.
So, if you're heading to Tenerife any time soon, I'd make sure that you set a day aside (and a bit in your holiday budget!) to head here. The rides are spread over a whole range of terror, and there are a load that are perfect for kids as well as adults. All in all, it was a chance to make myself face one of my fears, and do it with my boy right by my side, especially as all of the rides we went on let you go in pairs or fours!
