Waterpark Rulantica with kids: all the information at a glance
A day at the Rulantica Water Park with kids is top notch! Especially if you are visiting the amusement park Europa Park with your family, it is definitely fun to spend a day at the water park as well. We visited the amusement park Europa Park for a total of two days and visited the water park one day. The water park is practically next to the amusement park, and from the amusement park it is a few minutes’ drive by car to the water park. Following our findings, we list all the information you need to spend a day at Rulantica water park with kids.

Waterpark Rulantica with kids: general information!
We drove by car from our hotel near the park to the water park on Saturday morning. We park the car in the large (paid) parking lot in front of the water park and we are at the water park ticket office in a few minutes. Here we show our tickets we bought (online through the website) from the water park and are given a Rula band (which looks something like a watch), which we can use to pay for the rest of the day.
That band is tremendously nice, as it means you don’t have to bring money with you to the pool. We put everything in the safe and at the end of the day we settled what we all spent during this day. We bought our tickets through Rulantica ‘s website, and we spent some time looking for specific discount offers, but we couldn’t really find any. Of course, it is smart to check online in advance to see if there is any kind of promotion.
Water park Rulantica with kids: the water park
We visited the water park during the fall break and were fortunate that the weather was still beautiful at the end of October and we were able to use the outdoor section as well at 24 degrees. In fact, the water park has several slides and play equipment both inside and outside. The water park is in Scandinavian atmospheres and has several themed areas you can visit. In all, you have 13 themed zones.
We started in the morning (when it was not so busy) with the Vinterhal area, where they have several cool slides. For example, they have some slides where you go down the slide in a large family band, they have slides where you go down with a single or double band, and you have a slide where you go down without aids.
What strikes us right away in the water park is that it looks beautiful (something we expected when you also see the quality of Europa Park). We also recommend doing these slides first (and especially the ones with a family connection), because it gets a lot busier there quickly and you will have to stand in line longer. We found these slides fun and sometimes very surprising (that you suddenly end up with the family band on a ramp, for example).
After we have had all the slides in the Vinterhal area we visit the fun slide Hugin in Rangnakor, where we do a competition against each other and see who gets down first with the tire. Near here is also the whitewater rafting, which our daughter is a total fan of. There was no line here and I think we went through this lane at least 20 times.
Another spectacular slide is Dugdrob, where you take a free fall down the slide. Here, however, kids must be at least 6 feet tall and age 12 or older. In addition, we really liked Snorri’s Saga. This is a lazy river that goes throughout the water park, where you will see beautiful things along the way.
You also have a whole pirate ship inside with all kinds of slides for the slightly younger kids, there’s a whole (paid) sauna area included for adults, and there’s a pool with artificial waves that are occasionally triggered. They are still busy building and soon they will open a tower with eight slides. There will also be more lounging space and some new dining options.
What is also special is Snorri Snorkling VR. You swim here for a few minutes with VR glasses in a separate part of the water park and it’s like being in a movie. This is possible for kids as young as ten with a minimum height of 1.25 meters tall. In addition, in water park Rulantica with kids you can also visit a fun part outside.
For example, here they have a water attraction with boats, where you have to spray each other wet, there is a large play island with some cool slides that are also suitable for adults and there is also a whole relaxation pool and relaxation beach by the water pool. In short, enough entertainment to spend an entire day having a great time in water park Rulantica with kids.
Waterpark Rulantica with kids: food and drinks
You can eat and drink in water park Rulantica with kids just fine. We ourselves had lunch here at noon (fries with a snack) and it was fine. Both inside and outside you have several catering establishments and, in addition, it is very relaxing to have a drink in the heated water. You have both indoor and outdoor poolside bars where you can order drinks with your band. We found this a very nice concept and very relaxing to have a drink in the pool that way.
Waterpark Rulantica with kids: conclusion
We enjoyed our day at water park Rulantica with our daughter. The water park has many different slides, a very nice lazyriver and also an outdoor area, where you can swim and relax, especially in the summer months. Especially if you’re already visiting the Europa Park amusement park anyway, you can easily add a day at the water park.
