Entertainment Tenerife Loro Park is one of top attractions.

Entertainment Tenerife by Loro ParkEntertainment Tenerife Loro Park

Entertainment Tenerife by the 60 000
square meter big Loro Park or Loro Parque
is much more than fun.

One of its most important goals
is to educate the young to care about an environment for all animals.

Of course, Loros the parrots are the park's priorities.

Since 2015, a captivating 3D animation film a short version of Santana's Rio movie has helped to make an impact in this context. 9 film shows in 3 languages give Loro Park visitors a glimpse of the story of Blu that represents the blue Spix Macaw. In fact, those endangered birds from Brazil's North Eastern Bahia were successfully bred by the Puerto Park after the year 2000 when non was supposedly left in the wild.

Indeed, if you were looking for Tenerife zoos, Loro Parque is one of a kind. Many of its creatures are trained to render excitement to humans.

Also, the park's 2nd motto besides environmental awareness is geared towards better animal health and happiness.

It provides several performances per day where not only big birds called Loros amuse you. Many a big and small Loro, such as the depicted 'Sun Conure' or Sun Parakeet from the Northeast of South America is there. Many of them are just as friendly like the portrayed colorful parrot which is now threatened by extinction, by the way.

Comments of Ciao España are proof that you will not get bored with entertainment Tenerife at Loro Parque.

Penguins are like clowns

Once inside the aquarium building you will meet up with penguins in 2 glassed-in enclosures.

There, the more than 200 funny black and white birds are happy fellows on 12000 kg of genuine ice. Real snow flakes are showering them, from time to time. Also, some of them had babies not long ago.

They are indeed entertaining clowns by the way they stalk around like dressed up in tuxedos and, by the comical manner in which they behave.

Less thrilling amusement and spooky show

The aquarium with its diversified fauna is a treat but, now pay attention to the sharks behind the glass.

That's more like a spooky show in the low sparsely lit passages.

Who will find Loro Park entertaining?

  • Everybody who likes thrills and intelligent animals
  • The elderly who were fond of the circus.
  • People who work with animals in show business

Dolphin stunts over rope at Loro ParkDolphin stunts in Tenerife
Watch this breath taking Tenerife spectacle with dolphin stunts in fresh air surrounded by palm trees, Dresinas and rocks.

Look at the picture... See how high they jump over the rope above water...

If there were Olympic Games for dolphins in stunt shows, they might fetch a medal.

To do this would be risky with Loro Park's Orcas, in my mind.

However, many think that the Orcas show is worth every penny to watch from so close.

Is entertainment Tenerife worth risking human life?

There was a bit of an accident, in 2007.

One of the Orcas hit a trainer girl with its mighty fin by accident. She broke an arm in the process. It is said that the orca brought her up to the surface after the incident. That would be normal behavior of Orcas during entertainment training.

You see, entertainment Tenerife can come at a price for its trainers who are also the stuntmen at Loro Park.

Human contact Orca shows Tenerife suspended

A deadly, unfortunate accident happened on 24th of December 2009 in one of the Orca pools, which hold 22,5 million liters of often changed Atlantic water. The eldest, 14 year old show Orca called Kito caused death to its trainer. By the looks of it, its play suddenly turned rough, while Kito was trained for fun stunts. Alexis was knocked hard. The Orca submerged and left him on the bottom of the 12m deep basin. There, its trainer for Loro Park fun drowned without broken limbs or bite marks. There is no proof that the young Alexis Martianez Hernandez from Los Realejos had pushed entertaining criteria to its limits just before the fatal moment. By the way, he had been employed on the spectacle Loro Park scene since 2004, but had only worked to create fun with killer whales since 2007. Anyway, the park's management announced that Orca shows will go on. But no more trainer show artists allowed in the pools from now on...

Loro Park gorillas

In my mind, much amusement in Tenerife is also provided by those powerful mammals - when they perform all by themselves.

They are a group of males only.

Why only males?

Females would cause fights.

The leader which is the biggest is pulling off his own peculiar attraction stunts, at times.

Loro Park helps foreign students

Every year, the park which is famous for the world's biggest collection and preservation of parrots, invites overseas students for practical studies and veterinary education, such as the two Loro Park students from a German university, who are depicted beside.'Students are normally full of praise for the park's entertainment Tenerife, concern for the environment and love of ecology', they said. I met them over Christmas in 2008.

Special parrots

The Loros or, parrots are the basic theme of Loro Park.

This attraction presents some of them in a very sweet educational way besides proper parrot shows. A vet talks to some of the birds and explains all kinds of special treatments, which they get for all kinds of reasons. It's all done in a very amusing fashion.

I could watch this amazing aviary construction from the street in 2009. The gigantic metal structure is a high pitched bird house called Katandra Loro Park. Certainly, its netting which looks like shade cloth is made of rather durable material. This whole aviary see through dome was designed to withstand gales and to let a maximum of light as well as air enter from all sides. The Katandra free flying birds contribute to entertainment Tenerife by their exceptional beauty or size.

Loro Park for TV, video and camera fun

Sometime last year, a German television channel used the Tenerife park of the parrots (loros) for TV entertainment.

The park's many focal points are fun to capture on lens for every amateur as well as professional photo hunter. This was published in a German Tenerife magazine in connection with one of best photographers of camera brand Nikon. The man who is also biologist, recently, took many shots there while also being interested in Loro Park's amusements and shows.

History of entertainment Loro Park

Loro Park, apparently started off with only some parrots on display, way back in 1972, when my buddy Guenther came first to the island. He says that kind of a humble shelter, where one could see them looked rather lost on a relatively huge terrain. Entertainment Tenerife of the park of the Loros has gone a long way since then and its space has more than quadrupled.

Watch this exhilarating video, an entertainment Tenerife Loro park show!

A fact is that the Puerto Cruz parrot zoo provides unforgettable good time. There, visitors also arrive from surrounding Canary Islands to enjoy it.

In this context don't forget whales and dolphins in Tenerife in their natural habitat and see their entertaining behavior with many photos...

By the way, some whale and dolphin shows in the world were black listed in 2014 by ecologists but, the Tenerife parrot park was not one of them.
