Sunday – Thursday: 09:30 – 20:00
Friday: 09:00 – 16:00
Saturday: 10:00 – 20:00
Since Splash is located outside, the water park is closed during the winter. Thus, in any case, recheck the official site before visiting.
Note: we visited during the summer vacation of 2021. And since I thought there would be crowds, we arrived at 9:30. As it turned out, it was the correct decision because, at 11:30, the park was packed.
And now, let’s visit the park and answer some common questions.
Who is Splash for?
As you can see from the photos, Splash is best suited for kids aged 2-7. But these are only suggested ages. And, of course, it depends on the kids.
I visited with my daughters, and during our visit, the younger one was 1.5 years old, and my older daughter was ten. The younger daughter feared most facilities, and the older daughter found most facilities boring. Thus she mostly enjoyed the big water buckets (see the next photo).
What Can You Find at Splash?
That was the main question I had before visiting. So here is a panorama of the whole compound where you can see the facilities.
The park is not very big, and besides water-related attractions, there are restrooms (in the far corner).
Do not expect to exit the park with dry clothes. There are many kids and water splashes. Thus even parents that do not participate in any activities will most likely get some water sprays.
How Much Time Does a Visit Take?
Since the variety of attractions is not big, kids will be bored after a while. In my case, that was one hour. But if you have several kids aged 5-7, they could easily spend several hours.
When you enter Splash, you receive a paper ribbon. By wearing it, you can exit and return. Thus you can take a break and go for snacks (there is a kiosk at the playground) or visit the playground. And then return to Splash.
Note: the entrance to the playground is free.
We visited the playground and considered returning to Splash. But by then, the water attraction was packed with people, so we decided to go home.
Splash in Sharonim Mall is an attraction that kids enjoy on hot summer days. But before visiting, you should coordinate expectations regarding who this place is for and how much time people typically spend there. And if you want more at the end of your visit, I can suggest the nearby Hod HaSharon Park.
