Wild Wadi Water Park

1

Located in the shadows of the iconic Burj Al Arab, Wild Wadi Waterpark continues to offer gravity-defying thrills and awesome spills. You can enjoy 30 rides and attractions, including the Wipeout and Riptide Flowriders surfing experiences.

At Tantrum Alley, you’ll face three tornados and meet the eye of a storm, while at Jumeirah Sceirah (redesigned in 2012) you’ll shoot down one of two 120-metre tandem slides at an astonishing speed of 80km/h. Babies and toddlers will love the colourful slides, water guns, climbing frames, and ‘dumping bucket’ designed especially for families.

Wild Wadi also has a heated/cooled wave pool, multiple water slides and two artificial surfing machines. In addition, the park had the largest water slide outside of North America, but it has since been removed to make space for two other rides. Another feature of the park is an 18 m (59 ft) waterfall that goes off every ten minutes. The water park also has two gift shops, three restaurants and two snack stands where you can have a relaxing break between the rides.

Highlighted below are some of the main rides you can enjoy at the Wild Wadi Water Park.

Tantrum Alley & Burj Surj are two new slides that replaced the family rides. Both are the first of its kind in the region. Tantrum Alley is a slide with a combination of 3 tornados & Burj Surj has 2 bowls.

Jumeirah Sceirah is the tallest and fastest free-fall water slide outside of North America. Rising to 33 m (108 ft) with riders reaching speeds up to 80 km/h (50 mph).

FlowRider rides, Wipeout and Riptide, are surfing simulators that shoot out more than seven tons of water per second in a thin sheet across moulded foam structures. These rides produce a realistic wave effect which allows riders to body-board, knee-board or surf.

Breakers Bay is the largest wave pool in the Middle East. It produces parallel and crossing 1.5 m (4.9 ft) waves in five different configurations.

Juha’s Journey is a 360 m (1,180 ft) long river which allows guest to relax and slowly float around the park.

Juha’s Dhow and Lagoon is Wild Wadi’s play area for children and has over 100 water games/rides.
