In this post, you’ll discover some of the best amusement parks in Madrid. If you are in the city and you are looking for something fun to do, keep reading.
The majority of the amusement parks are in the outskirts. If you don’t have a car, you could take a bus instead, but don’t worry, we’ll tackle that later.
I’ll cover all the things you need to know, and I’ll provide a few links and tips.
And now, without further ado, here is my list of the top 4 amusement parks in Madrid.
Check the map below to find out where they are:
Parque de Atracciones.
This amusement park is the closest to Madrid city center. It’s less than a 25 minute metro ride from Sol.
Parque de Atracciones de Madrid is in Casa de Campo, the biggest park in Madrid. The metro stop is Batán, right off line 10.
In this theme park, you’ll find numerous roller coasters, water rides, and shows. Even though Parque de Atracciones isn’t known for its shows, there are a few, in case you want to take some time away from the rides.
You can either pack some food or get something to eat in one of the few restaurants in the park. Another option is to purchase some food online.
You can get tickets on their webpage. The price varies depending on the season and the day you want to go. At the moment, the tickets start at 24.90€.
Parque de Atracciones de Madrid is open all year round. However, depending on the month, the timetable might change. It opens from 12:00 to 7:00 pm in winter, whereas in summer, it closes as late as 11:00 pm.
This park was built in the early 2000s. In Parque Warner, you’ll find some of the most famous Warner Bros characters. They also perform in some of the shows that take place in the park.
Parque Warner resembles Disney, although they are not in the same league. There’s a parade at the end of the day where you can see some famous characters such as Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny and Porky Pig.
Their shows are a little flashier than in Parque de Atracciones de Madrid and they are scheduled throughout the day. Get a booklet at the entrance to make sure you don’t miss the interesting ones.
This amusement park is far from downtown Madrid. The best way to get there is by car. It takes about 35 minutes, and buying the tickets and parking online can save you some precious time. It gets pretty busy during the weekends, especially in summer.
On the other hand, if you don’t have a car in Madrid, you could take a bus ride to this amusement park. The buses leave from Méndez Álvaro and you can even buy the entrance tickets+bus from their webpage. The pack starts at 35.9€ and includes the round trip.
There are a few restaurants inside the park where you can have some chicken wings, sandwiches, burgers, as well as some other more elaborate dishes. There’s a Starbucks too.
If you get the tickets online, you can purchase the food in advance before checking out. While at it, you can decide to buy the fast pass (Correcaminos), it’s about 39€—more expensive than the actual ticket to go into the Parque Warner (26.90€).
Here you can see the map with all the rides.
Parque Warner Beach
This is the water park version of Parque Warner. Even though the two Warner parks are near each other, you’ll need to get a different ticket to access each one of them. There’s the option to get one combined ticket for both,
The tickets are about 20€. If you get both: Parque Warner + Beach—which I discourage you to do— it would be 41.9€.
If I were you, I would go to each park on a different days. There’s enough to do at Parque Warner, so take your time and don’t rush.
Needless to say, Parque Warner Beach opens only during summer.
The best way to get to this park is by car. Don’t worry, if you don’t have one, you can take the same bus that goes to Parque Warner.
Aquopolis – Water Park
This water park is closed most of the year. They open in summer from 12:00 to 19:30 pm.
The best way to get to the park is by car. However, if you don’t have a car, you can take bus 581 from Principe Pío. Check the timetable in advance, in summer there’s only a bus each hour. Once there, you’ll have to walk for 5 minutes.
You can get the tickets online or at the entrance. The price ranges from 16.90€ up to 26.90€ (if you buy the ticket at the entrance). You can get the Speedy Pass for an extra 12€.
Like in Parque Warner, there’s also the option to buy food in advance on their webpage.
