Rio Water Planet

Amusement Park in Barra da Tijuca & West of Rio

Rio Water Planet claims to be the biggest aquatic park in Latin America, though it's in a sad state of repair. Waterfalls, artificial beaches and lazy rafting rivers are part of the attractions, as are Rio Kart Planet (an open-air kart track), Rio Show Planet (an area for shows) and Rio Circus Planet. Children under 1m tall get in free.
