Cleo Park in Sharm El Sheikh


Page update - Aug 30, 2023

Is the Cleo Park water park convenient and interesting for tourists? How to get there? What is the ticket price? How can you get in for free? What are the opening hours and schedule of the slides? Read the answers on this page.

Prices, timetables, and other information on this page were updated in August 2023.

Briefly about Cleo Park

Cleo Park has: 9 adult slides, 2 large children's areas, an artificial wave pool, and a "lazy river". Cleo Park is the second largest water park in Sharm El Sheikh, second only to Aqua Blu (Albatros).

Cleo Park has many clear advantages.

The first advantage is its location in Naama Bay, the center of the Sharm El Sheikh resort city. Getting from most hotels by cab is easy, fast, and inexpensive. We will talk about transport below on this page.

The second advantage is a great stylization with the theme of ancient Egypt. Around the park, statues in the ancient style are placed, the names of slides correspond to the theme, and the main slide is made in the form of the Egyptian pyramid. Not for nothing the name of the water park was formed from the name Cleopatra.

UNFORTUNATELY, Cleo Park is far from new. The paint on many of the figures is partially peeling. The tiles on the surfaces are crumbling, and there are nasty pebbles on the roads. The coating of the slides has accumulated cracks and defects, and the slides are not as fast as they were originally.

The park needs a renovation, but money for that is not forthcoming. Still, Cleo Park remains good fun for the whole family.

Free access for hotel guests

A visit to Cleo Park Aquapark is included in the accommodation of the guests of two hotels - Sharm Dreams and Sharm Dreams Vacation Club Aquapark. But there are nuances.

The first nuance. The room reservations at these hotels may be either with Cleo Park visit included, or not included, or 40% discounted tickets. Be sure to ask the hotel and/or your tour operator about the current terms.

The second nuance. The staff at the front desk usually hush up (or forget to say) the fact that a visit to the water park is included in the price of the stay. Many guests of the above-mentioned hotels spend their entire vacation without having visited Cleo Park.

You already know all the truth, because you read our website.

Where is it located and how to get there

Cleo Park is located in Sharm El Sheikh, in the Naama Bay area, which is almost in the center of the resort city. For a detailed map of the resort city, see our review "Sharm El Sheikh".

Cleo Park is located directly behind the Sharm Dreams Hotel. There is a signpost to Cleo Park on El Salam road (running parallel to the Naama Bay coast). Look at the photo near to see this signpost, click on the photo to enlarge.

The best way to get there is by cab. You can calculate the trip cost from the distance between your hotel and Cleo Park. See the current cab fares in Sharm El Sheikh in the review "Taxis in Egypt". In the same review, read about how to take a cab in Sharm and not to overpay.

Approximate prices for the cab rides to Cleo Park: from Maya Bay and the Old Town is 50-60 Egyptian pounds, from Coral Bay is 40-50 pounds, from Sharks Bay is 70-90 pounds, from Nabq Bay is from 90 to 150 pounds. For the current exchange rates of the Egyptian pound, see our review "Money in Egypt".

Guided tours (excursions)

Organized trips to Cleo Park are rarely available. Tour operators and excursion agencies prefer Aqua Blu (Albatros).

This is why many hotel guides tell outright nastiness about Cleo Park - that it is dirty, dangerous and so on. DO NOT BELIEVE THEM. They just want to sell you a trip to Aqua Blu.

Why do you need an organized trip? It's easy to get there by cab, as we detailed above.

Price of admission

Unfortunately, the official website www.cleopark.net no longer exists. It's a pity, because previously you could buy tickets online with a discount.

Adults (12 years and older) - 25 US dollars or Euros.

Children (from 4 to 12 years old) - 15 US dollars or Euros.

Children under 4 years old are free of charge.

At the ticket office, they take US dollars, UK pounds, Euros, Egyptian pounds. Credit cards are not accepted. If you do not have cash, you can withdraw from an ATM at the entrance to the Sharm Dreams hotel. We strongly advise to have the exact sum, because the ticket office does not always have the change.

Working hours

Daily: from 10 am to 5 pm (from 10-00 to 17-00).

Due to low visitor flow, operating hours of the slides are shortened: from 11 am to 1 pm (from 11-00 to 13-00) and from 2 pm to 5 pm (from 14-00 to 17-00).

During the break (from 1 pm to 2 pm, from 13-00 to 14-00) you are allowed to swim in the wave pool.

The important thing - where WCs are!

Cleo Park has two WCs, and the park is quite large. To avoid running around looking for them at the hour of need, read and remember the location of the WCs beforehand.

The first WC is at the entrance, where the Isis and Osiris locker rooms are. The second WC is next to the pizzeria and the main bar. See the photo of the pizzeria.

The important point!

Due to low attendance now (August 2023) several rides are closed. First, the Queen`s Trophy slide is closed. Secondly, the Nile Spring Adventure lazy river is closed.

We hope that soon the visitor flow to the park will recover and these attractions will be turned back on.




Slides and attractions




The Lost Pyramid

This is the central tower of the water park. Stylized as the Egyptian pyramids. As it looks, see the photo near, click on the photo to enlarge.

There is even a sphinx next to the pyramid, although not as big as the Great Sphinx at Giza. See what this sphinx looks like in this photo.

There are three slides start from the tower:

The first is the black enclosed slide. You have to ride on tubing in it, and only single tubing is allowed. No double tubing is allowed, otherwise you will just get stuck in the turns of the slide. Small children are not allowed on this slide, but teenagers are.

The second is an almost vertical red slide. Such slides are usually called "kamikaze". But this slide is not tall and not scary at all. Children are not allowed on this slide, but teenagers are.

The third is a blue open winding slide. It is the slowest and easiest, and it is allowed for children from about 5 years. It's up to the lifeguard to let them in or not. Riding WITHOUT the tubing.

Warning! The pool at the slide end is pretty deep - 1 meter (3.3 feet) or even deeper. If your child is low height and can not swim, it is better to catch him at the slide end.

Warning! The blue slide has obviously already accumulated a lot of defects and microcracks. Sliding on it is now very weak. Children slip quite well. But adults can barely do it.




Scorpio's Attack

The name is scary, but there is nothing scary about this slide. On the contrary, it is a favorite slide among children.

Children from about 4 years old can ride it. To let or not is at the decision of the lifeguard.

The slide is long and wide. You can ride there on the tubing, but only on a single (double are not allowed).

There is a small pond in the middle of the route. The visitor must grab one of the ropes at the side and pull the rope to go further. Children don't always succeed, but the adults usually help. See what it looks like in this photo.




Cleopatra Bath Wave Pool

Located just after the entrance to the park.

The waves do not have a fixed schedule. They work for about 15 minutes every 30 minutes. That is: 15 minutes with waves, 15 minutes without.

Children are allowed into the pool. From 7-8 years old unaccompanied by an adult. Under 7 years only with a companion.

But be careful with children. The water level in the pool reaches 1.75 meters (5.75 feet).

Near the pool, there are many sun loungers, which are almost always free.




Snake Terror

Tourists commonly call such slides as "toilet bowls". The visitor slips down inside a closed tube, then falls into a large "saucer". Spins in it a few circles and gets into the hole and another tube to the exit.

Riding only on a double tubing (a single tubing is not allowed).

Attention! This slide has one potential danger. The fact that the lifeguard does not see the whole "saucer" from his position, but only sees half of the "saucer".

As a result, the lifeguard can not exactly make sure that the previous visitors have already left "saucer", and he/she is forced to launch the next tubing with visitors "without looking". It happens that there are several tubings in the "saucer". There are collisions. Our advice: just don't hurry.




Solar Boat

This is the classic "canyon" slide. Visitors on the tubing start at the top of one edge and skate between the edges until they stop.

Double and single tubing are allowed. Small children are not allowed on this slide, but teenagers are allowed when accompanied by an adult. To let or not is at the decision of the lifeguard.

The slide is styled as a "Solar Boat". According to the beliefs of the ancient Egyptians, the god Ra traveled on this boat. He is the Sun at day and fights the terrible serpent Apophis at night.




Oasis Family Slide

This is a low and wide slide. It is located in the farthest corner of the water park, behind the children's areas. Due to its remote location, not all tourists find it.

Even young children (3 years and older) are allowed on this slide, but only if accompanied by an adult.

It is forbidden to ride the tubing there, it is allowed only on your "bottom".

Warning! Be careful with kids, because the slide is wide and kids may turn over.




Color Multi Slide

A multi-slide for 5 people. No need to comment. Children from 3 years old are allowed. Whether to let on not is at the decision of the lifeguard.

The only important point! Adults need to be careful there. The pool at the end of this slide is shallow - 90 centimeters (3 feet) or even shallower. An adult visitor can easily hit his/her back at the bottom. By the way, our editor-in-chief hit himself right there, and then he had sore ribs for two weeks. Be careful!




Kids Zones

Cleo Park has two children's areas, for which we can give the water park an A.

The first one is classic - with a bucket on top, small slides, and splash pads. Unfortunately, right now (August 2023) the splashers don't work.

The second children's area is for the youngest visitors. There are animal figurines, small fountains, and quiet baby slides.

See a small gallery of photos below, click on the photo to enlarge.




Nile Spring Adventure Cruise

This is the classic "lazy river".

At the moment (August 2023) this attraction is closed. Even in its best years it was not popular, and the water and energy consumption is considerable. Apparently, the administration decided not to waste money.




The Queen's Trophy

Multi-slide for two people. There you ride on special mats in a race.

At the moment (August 2023) this attraction is closed.

And it's a pity, because the slide was very interesting. We hope that with the restoration of tourist traffic to Sharm El Sheikh the slide will reopen.

Important and useful to know

- It is forbidden to enter the water park with your own food and drink. But now due to low attendance the restaurant is not working. Therefore, security at the entrance allow to take food. But water may not be allowed, because the bar is working. A can of soda costs 40 Egyptian pounds (2 US dollars). However, nowadays they don't search visitors' belongings at all;

- The entrance can be paid in US dollars, Euros or Egyptian pounds and there is no big difference. But it is better to have Egyptian pounds ready to pay for the cab. How and where to change, read our review "Currency exchange in Egypt";

- Do not forget about the sun protection. Read our reviews "Weather in Egypt by months" and "What not to do in Egypt";

- Try to go to any water parks and amusement parks on weekdays to avoid the crowds. Recall that the weekends in Egypt are Friday and Saturday, we talked about it in the review "Friday in Egypt". For the public holidays calendar, see the review "Public holidays in Egypt".

Have fun at Cleo Park, and read our pages about Egypt (see the list of the pages below).
