Wild Wadi Waterpark

by Cyril Kardashevsky

Wild Wadi Water Park is one of the most famous water parks in Dubai. It was launched in 1998 and its name comes from the desert river Wadi. Located near the Burj Al Arab and Palm Jumeirah hotels, both tourists and locals can easily get here.

If you want to see as many of Dubai’s landmarks as possible, Wild Wadi is the place for you. Although it is not as large as Atlantis Aquaventure, it is still a great choice as it spans about 13 acres.

Wild Wadi Water Park offers a unique experience, including thrill rides, several surf machines and more relaxing activities.

Wild Wadi water park is built around the story of the Arab hero Juha and his friend Sinbad. The park has an Arabian atmosphere and includes more than 30 attractions and slides, giving visitors a unique experience that everyone can enjoy.
In addition to extreme rides and a few surf machines for thrill-seekers, there are also relaxing activities for travelers with little children or those who prefer more easygoing entertainment.

There are many lifeguards appointed throughout the park to ensure that you and your children are closely monitored and safe.

Remember that smoking is generally prohibited in Wild Wadi, but there are three designated smoking areas for smokers.
