It's fun and nice but should not be compared to American waterparks size and ride wise. The rides are very entertaining got 1-3h but after that it gets a little boring. The outdoor area is very nice although the decoration could be improved a little. Overall a fun place to go to as a teenager or family!

After living 12 years within 30 minutes of Alpamare, today I finally went. Wow! I don't understand why I didn't go sooner. It's not exactly cheap, but I feel it's worth the price. My daughter's four and a half, and I'd say that's about the youngest a child could be to cope with the slides, and even then she had... More

I had a brilliant time at this water park, I had never been here before and it was a great experience. We did all the slides with my personal favourite being bubble rush, it was quite rough and bumpy but such fun. The outdoor ammonia pool was so relaxing with the heat of it was a nice contrast to the... More

Great fun and worth the money for teenage kids but young ones and older parents might find it too expensive. Older kids will love all the slides, flumes, and rapid rides etc but this place needs price brackets for different users. Older people will love the Ammonia spa pool heated to 36 degrees but unlikely use all the flumes. Mother's... More

There I 4 hour option which is great until you are late leaving , at about 1chf a minute , you might not be so keen to dry your hair! Drinks are... More

I always go back in this place when I visit my family in Switzerland but I sadly see that the owners don't invest any money in modernising the structure or in the maintenance. This is a real pity because it's a unique place and should be kept in adequate conditions to guarantee a safe and funny day to all the... More

We went to Alpamare for an afternoon en paid gold for four hours inside (CHF 39.95 for 1 adult and CHF 32.50 for kids up to 15) The kids enjoyed it, but when we were out of the changing lockers and calmly walked out we had to pay an additional 5 CHF as we were 18 minutes late...
