Lupa Beach Now Free For Children
While beach resorts are getting more and more expensive, Lupa Beach's biggest announcement this year is that children under 12 can go to the beach for free and there is also a youth discount for 12-18-year-olds.
"Due to the significantly rising costs, we could not get away without a price increase this year, but the average price increase is not even close to inflation, and for families, who are the most affected by the price increase, we offer a bigger discount even in this difficult situation", said Károly Gerendai, the creator of Lupa.
"This means that Lupa is free for children under 12 years of age, even in the case of one adult arriving with up to three children. Young people aged 12-18 can buy a cheaper 'youth ticket' and 60+ year-olds can come to the beach at a reduced price, and our neighbors Budakalász and Szentendre, who have local resident cards can buy half-price tickets. And for those who want a relaxing splash after work, you can buy a sunset ticket at a 30% discount from 4 p.m.", Gerendai added.
Lupa has been running Central Europe's largest wakeboard complex with great success for years, but this year there are new exciting water services. For example, one of the most spectacular attractions, courtesy of Quadro Watersport, is the Flyboard, a board-like carbon structure that can be used to propel you up to 4-6 meters high. The Jetpack, a kind of "backpack" that lifts you into the air, works on a similar principle.
On top of all this, there's the Giant Jetpack, which can be a great way to entertain a party of six at a time. The same goes for the Slider, which can carry up to four people, enjoying the thrill of bouncing around the bends in the water. Similar to the Slider is the Crazy Ufo, but this one allows guests to enjoy the experience while seated.
Another option is the Donut, a single doughnut-shaped mattress, splitting the water with its passenger. In addition, there is still a choice of traditional and extreme water sports from rowing to sailing, and from SUP to surfing. The water adventure park continues to be a big favorite with children, while the Slip and Fly giant slide is a great experience for the older ones.
The Fun Beach is a beach center for parents with children, with an enlarged square and shallow water beach area, where little ones can enjoy a range of games and fun, including water bumper cars, trampolines, and a bouncy castle. There are arts and crafts activities and a crèche, so parents can "escape" for a splash if they wish.
And of course, there are beach sports on the sandy beach, with super beach football, beach volleyball, and beach handball courts. This year again, a series of camps are held for youngsters: beach, water and TEQ sports, football, volleyball, handball, kayaking, in short, everything.
The gastronomic services are also expanding, with Lupa Beach's gastronomic menu offering both typical beach dishes and more specialties, but also everything from cocktails, bubble tea, and rosé spritzers to enjoy on a warm summer's day. The Unicorn Bistro, spearheaded by Zsolt Osváth and already a proven name in the city center and at Hungarian festivals, will be making its debut in a spectacular new location in Lupa, with the "pink" Unicorn Beach around it. The colorful environment will therefore feature unique, colorful burgers, shakes, vegan and free options, with a unique beach atmosphere.
Öböl beach is looking to attract beachgoers with a green grassy lakeside and reduced entrance rates. Öböl beach can be reached by bike from the EuroVelo cycle path on the Danube side, and there is also a bike storage and service point. The Lupa bus will continue to shuttle between the city center and Lupa on opening days, while electric trolleys will take passengers arriving by HÉV from the Budakalász stop to the beach entrance.
The website www.lupabeach.com also provides information on the current temperature, water temperature, wind speed, current programs, and, of course, opening hours.
