Enjoy four-dimension experiences at the 4D Gate, adrenaline exploding at the Shock Tower, crazy rotations at Crazy Mouse and Big Apple, rafting at La Isla and many more rides and games for unforgettable moments. At Kidom, the park only for kids, a series of unique games keep children happy, like the Carousel, the Bongo flying elephants, trains, the Youpi Tower, Bloom Bloom boats and the mega colorful inflatable toys.
Happenings, events and concerts are often held at Allou, which also provides relaxing moments for all the family at the restaurants and cafes on the location. You can spend many happy hours at this popular fun park and then head back to the port of Piraeus for lunch at one of the many fish restaurants - mainly on Mikrolimano - such as Istioploikos, Jimmy and the Fish or Papaioannou.
If your kids are older, they might enjoy visiting the Hellenic Maritime Museum at Piraeus, or sightseeing on the highest point of the area - Profitis Ilias - from where you can see a panoramic view of the area. Browsing the shops in the center might also be interesting, doing some shopping for delicacies, souvenirs, clothing or anything else you might need. Take a break for ice cream at one of the cafes on the pedestrian streets in the shopping district.
