Do You Need A Fast Pass At Siam Park, Tenerife?


We visited Siam Park at peak holiday time in August. I have to say I was reluctant after reading the negative reviews on Tripadvisor.  They mainly focused on the lengths of queues and not being able to get on any rides without a fast pass for an additional 18 euros. Now when you are a couple that’s not too much but another 18 euros x 5 onto an already expensive entry fee, food and locker. Well let’s just say I didn’t really want to pay it. 
I have been to the Merlin parks in the UK and have never really needed to buy fast passes so decided we would see how it went.

We arrived early. Around 9.15. This is a must. We were lucky as it was only a 5 minute walk from our hotel (Iberostar Bouganville Playa.) It gets you into the park and hiring a locker easily. The queues for the lockers at around 11 were insane. We then went to wait to ride Singha as I wanted to go on the rollercoaster style ride the most and knew that the one we had done at volcano bay had massive queues so assumed this would be the same.We managed to ride it really quickly. It was fab. But it broke before my husband goton it. One of the biggest issues we had with the park was the need to find extra people to ride with. Pretty much all rides were 2’s and 4’s. Infact a family of 3 in the fast pass queue for the dragon we’re about to be turned away before I leapt across and said I would ride with them. Most operators would let you wait until a space came up though.We managed a good few rides without queues. Then had a really long queue for the dragon. But it was worth it. We then went to the wave pool.We then did a more slides and queues went down massively after 4. Fast passes aren’t essential but if you can justify them they do make the queues less.the tower of power and the lazy river aren’t on fast passes and you should do these first if you buy a fast pass. The lazy river was so busy we couldn’t go through the tunnelwith fish.We had a great time at Siam Park and I would go back if we went to Tenerife again. I probably wouldn’t buy fast passes but would buy the bounce back tickets instead. That way you could have a more relaxed couple of days and make sure that you did the rides early and late when the queues are small.Have you need to Siam park? Did you like it?
