It’s time for your little ones to have some fun while you rest and enjoy a drink on the beach! Here is everything you need to know about the Aqua Park Thassos, one of the best 101 things to see on the island.
AQUA PARK MARIES SAFETY
Is there an age limit to enter the Aqua Park Maries?
Yes, you must be above three years old and at least 1.10 meters (3.6ft) tall. Fortunately, there is no maximum age restriction, so feel free to celebrate your fiftieth birthday on the watery slides of Aqua Park Thassos. If you don’t feel like it, remember that kids below six years of age may need to be accompanied, so you might as well give it a try!
Do you have to wear a life jacket to enter the Aqua Park Maries?
Absolutely yes! Your life jacket can prove extremely useful even if you are an experienced swimmer. After all, you are jumping around most of the time, so the life jacket is there to protect you and others in case something unfortunate happens.
Is there a lifeguard on duty in the Aqua Park Thassos?
Yes, there is always a lifeguard on duty in the Aqua Park Maries. He usually sits on the western side of the waterpark, overlooking the kids and adults playing. Remember, his job is to interfere in case of imminent danger, and he is not a babysitter. So, if you’re looking for a guardian, you might want to accompany your kids.
Is it safe for kids to play in the Aqua Park Maries?
In short, yes. But, at the same time, safety is a somewhat relative term and means different things for different parents. Of course, Aqua Park Maries is a legit business that follows all relevant rules and precautions.
Plus, all the floaties strictly comply with high standards certified by TUV EN15649 and are made by Aquaglide, a German company with many years of experience in marine amusement parks.
Also, note that every child or adult that enters the Aqua Park must know swimming.
GETTING TO AQUA PARK MARIES
How to get to the Aqua Park Thassos from Skala Maries?
From the center of Skala Marion, you must walk or drive 300 meters to reach the Aqua Park Thassos. However, if you are on the southern side of the port with the car, you would need to do a 2-kilometer loop since the road between the taverns and port is one-way.
How to get to the Aqua Park Maries from Limenaria?
Although you can follow the main coastal road from Limenaria to Skala Maries, taking the northern route through Kalyvia might save you from some traffic and even gain you a minute or two. The two paths are about the same length (8 kilometers), but the northern route is flatter and less twisty. It is no coincidence locals prefer it even if at some point you have to cross a short dirt road.
How to get to the Aqua Park Thassos from Limenas?
The 31 kilometers from Limenas to the Aqua Park Thassos will take 35 minutes to drive. It’s a lot of time in the car, but your kids will thank you for bringing them to such a unique Aqua Park! So, prepare yourself and the family for a memorable time in Thassos on the Maries Aqua Park.
