Most Important Attractions At Wild Wadi Waterpark
This huge waterpark, inspired by the Arabian legendary character Juha, depicts a lush tropical refuge with lagoons, waterfalls, and rapids.
1. Master Blasters
To begin, ride the Master Blasters to become acquainted with the layout of the park. This gravity-defying tube attraction is similar to an aquatic rollercoaster, propelling you around the park using a series of high-powered water jets.
2. The Jumeirah Sceirah
The Jumeirah Sceirah should be your next stop for thrill enthusiasts. Climb to the top of the 100-foot tower to enter a capsule and cross your arms and legs. Before you know it, you’ll be speeding through the tunnel at 50 mph and experiencing sudden weightlessness.
3. The Burj Surj
The Burj Surj, a tube ride for two to five people that spins you through a series of enormous bowls and twisting slides, is another high-speed classic.
4. Juha’s Dhow and Lagoon
Over 100 water activities, including five slides, racing slides, a dumping bucket, and water pistols, are available in this interactive family-friendly play structure. This play area was created specifically for children.
5. June’s Journey
Looking for something a little more low-key? June’s Journey, a 1,200-foot lazy river that moves at a slow speed, will appeal to people of all ages.
6. Action River
In this action-packed river journey, you’ll bounce through waves, go under a waterfall, and face unexpected rapids. Flood River features unexpected surges of 100,000 gallons of water, resulting in 1-metre-high waves and furious river rapids.
7. Tantrum Alley
Tantrum Alley takes you on an adrenaline-pumping ride with downhill waterslides, three spectacular tornadoes, and a whole lot of speed. One tube can be shared by a maximum of four individuals and a minimum of two.
8. Wave Pool
The largest wave pool in the Middle East is Wild Wadi’s Breaker’s Bay. Play and swim in 1.5-metre waves that come at you from all sides. Swimmers of all ages are welcome in Breaker’s Bay, although youngsters must be supervised at all times.
Dining Avenues At The Park
With the exception of a 1-litre (33 oz) water bottle, you are not permitted to bring your own food or drink inside the park. Instead, refuel with Julshan’s Burgers and Dogs’ fast-food favourites or Riptide Pizza’s thin-crust pies. Smoke House serves American-style barbecue, including spicy ribs, brisket, and wings, for a more substantial dinner. Looking for something light and healthy to help you battle the heat? Smoothies, juices, and fresh fruit salads are available at Leila’s Fruits and Snacks.
Book one of the VIP cabanas for up to eight people for the ultimate Wild Wadi experience. These shady areas are located on the edge of Juha’s Journey Lazy River and the Wavepool and are equipped with four cushioned sun loungers, a table, and four chairs. The private refrigerators are stocked with chilled water, soft drinks, and fruit, and you’ll receive free towels and priority access to White Water Wadi.
While you’re at it, why not indulge in some day spa pampering? Make your way to the Fisho Spa and dip your toes into a pool filled with Garra Rufa fish. These tiny, toothless fish eat away at your dead skin, leaving your feet soft, smooth, and exfoliated.
