It's the best waterpark I've seen: endless amount of slides and fun. Try to come on a weekday to avoid long queues and buy tickets on the web, which will make the price more bearable. I think the 4 hours ticket is enough. The kids...More

Really great place, super busy at the weekend and school holidays. Mainly focused around older kids slides >10 and strong swimmer. probably not the best place for <8's and not worth the money for them either. Really should have cheaper family tickets.More

Sorry! I guess my answer is a bit late.. However it's very easy. It's about half an hour I think from Zurich by train. It's the s2 or s8 line if I remember correctly to a place called Pfäffikon. That's where it is:) Julia
