Enjoy the sun and stay cool!
DescriptionThink there’s no water in the desert? Think again because Wild Wadi Waterpark brings you 12 acres of aquatic adventures. Whether you’re seeking adrenaline-producing thrills or chilled out pools, you’ll find all the fun in the sun.
Wild Wadi is the waterpark of the 21st century. There are plenty of thrill-inducing rides that toy with gravity: Jumeirah Sceirah features a trap door that builds anticipation and then drops you onto a slide at a 70 degree angle (don’t worry, it straightens out at some point!). Enjoy the largest wave pool in the Middle East or grab a (rental) surfboard and hang loose at WipeOut Flowrider, one of four artificial surf stations in the world. It pumps seven tons of water a second into a thin arc to simulate real waves.
Not into surfing? No problem – they’ve got you covered: relaxing wave pools, a lazy river and gentle currents can let you drift along like a reggae song, as your cares wash away on a high tide.
And there’s an entire lagoon to keep little tykes entertained. Juha’s Dhow and Lagoon to be precise. (Juha is a beloved character from Arabian folklore). Kids will find over 100 water activities, five slides, two racing slides and water guns.
So, whether you want to be chilled, thrilled or even spilled – from a slide, of course – you’ll find the perfect day at Wild Wadi.
