Wild Wadi Water Park
This is Dubai’s main water park, it is outdoor and located close to the Burj Al Arab and Jumeirah Beach Hotel. The water park theme is an Arabian adventure called the tale of Juha and includes the familiar figure of Sinbad the Sailor. The park has 30 rides for all ages. Among the most popular rides, there is Jumeirah Sceirah a tandem slide 32 meters high and 120 meters long. Visitors whiz down the slide at 80km/h.
The Burj Surj ride has two sections, a downhill slide and a curved bowl. Visitors slide down in inner tubes and spin into a spiral before splashing into the pool below. The Master Blasters are a water rollercoaster where water jets take you on a gravity-defying ride up 15 meters. Tantrum Alley has a downhill slide and tornadoes which you go through on a four-seater inner tube before landing in the pool below. The Juha’s Dhow and Lagoon is an area with over 100 activities for families with young children. It has 5 slides, water guns, a dumping bucket and other exciting water games for kids.
Wild Wadi’s lazy river ride is called Juha’s Journey and takes you on a gentle 360-meter journey. Action River will surprise you with sudden surges of 100,000 litres of water, waves, rapids and waterfalls. You can surf in the Wipeout and Riptide Flow Riders and splash around in the largest wave pool in the Middle East.
