People person Anna is one of Topflight’s newest resort managers. As a passionate Italian she talks about the Adriatic Riviera with sheer enthusiasm. As a must experience Anna says "enjoy a walk along the canal in Cesenatico where you will be suitably impressed with the choice of bars and restaurants". If you fancy an excursion, she suggests San Marino as it is world’s apart from the coast and indeed great for shopping with a very eclectic mix of shops. It also has great vantage points to sit and enjoy an aperol spritz whilst savouring the surrounding countryside.

Thanks to its attractions, entertainment and in particular its list of well known musical acts that perform on the Aquafan stage year after year, this water park has earned a name for itself as a fun-filled whirlwind for people of all ages.
’Cartoon Network Beach’ is a special kid’s zone where members of trained and fun staff are on hand, ready to entertain kids of all ages with fun and games. In this part of the park is the popular ‘Noah’s Ark’ which children can explore and safely climb to explore the thousands of cute animals aboard before sliding down one of the four slides and directly into the children’s pool. The Elephant swimming pool is also a big hit and ideal for smaller children as it is only 50cm deep. It features three small slides that come out of the pink elephants belly. There are plenty of fun and safe activities for smaller kids to ensure that they have a day to remember.

The Kamikaze is high on the list for those who like a speedy thrill. It has two 90 metre long slopes where the descent reaches speeds of up to 70 km/h!!

It is 208 metres long and 20 metres high and you slide into the unknown, completely in the dark!
And For those who want to spend a less crazy day at Aquafan, or maybe if you need a bit of time out from the thrills and spills, there is plenty available to those who want to chill out and relax in the Italian sunshine. Hop on a rubber dinghy and let the gentle current of the Slow River carry you gently along, take a cool dip and enjoy a swim in the large central swimming pool.
