Best Theme Parks in Greece
A trip with the whole family to an amusement park or a theme park in Greece will be the perfect solution for a fun, interesting and eventful weekend. There are two big theme parks in Athens, some in Thessaloniki and Crete.
Allou Fun Park, Athens
Allou fun park is the best theme park in Greece. This entertainment complex is located about 10 km from the city centre, so it can be easily approached by bus from Omonia Square if you stay in the downtown area.
This is the only classic amusement park in Greece, specially built to suit the interests of visitors of all ages except toddlers.
It has many attractions, including a Ferris wheel 40 meters high, which offers an excellent panorama of Athens.
Among others are racing cars, roller coasters, a shooting gallery, rafting, fishing, and a hippodrome – all these and other attractions will not leave anyone indifferent and give your family a great mood. Also, there you can find nice cafes and restaurants with kids’ menus and shops.
Magic Park, Thessaloniki
Magic Park is a classic amusement park in Thessaloniki with almost 36 attractions and excellent infrastructure and is one of the best theme parks in Greece. Having chosen any resort near Thessaloniki, for example, Halkidiki, as a place of rest, we recommend that you look into this world of fun and joy with your children.
The park covers an area of 65,000 sq. m. Numerous carousels and attractions, including roller coasters, a flash tower, a Ferris wheel, slot machine halls, a bungee jump, racing cars, a “ghost train”, a “panic room”, and water attractions, are designed for any age.

You can either buy a day pass or separate tickets for each attraction. The activities are designed for kids from 3 up 14 years old.
It’s one of the best theme parks in Greece. The roller coasters are not very high, so for little kids, it will be just perfect. The park has great service and friendly staff.

Tips are ladders with platforms and towers. You can climb them, inspect the nearest paths or even get over the wall. You will receive a prize if you make it in the stipulated time while completing several tasks.
