Dubai Entertainment: Elite Wild Wadi Water Park!
Water adrenaline-Wild Wadi water Park in the Emirate of Dubai, three major water parks, and everyone is trying to attract visitors with unique entertainment or interesting styling. Wild Wadi Waterpark Waterpark is not very successful in styling, but the composition of the slides clearly surpassed competitors.
There are more than 30 water attractions. The only master BLASTERS slide in the UAE, there are only two in the world, the second is in the Troy water Park in Turkey at the Belek resort. The largest in the middle East basin with artificial waves. The river with waves up to a meter high,” lazy river " length of 360 meters and many more interesting things.
How to get:
Wild Wadi water Park is located in the Jumeirah area, if you are staying in one of the hotels in the area, it will be the easiest walk. The Park is just 400 metres from the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, will be able to look at the world's tallest hotel near. For tourists in other areas of Dubai recommend a taxi, the benefit of the taxi prices in Dubai are acceptable. The second option is cheaper-Dubai metro, go to the station “Mall of the Emirates”. Then you need to walk about 3 kilometers towards the Persian Gulf. Given the hot weather in The Arab Emirates almost all year round, the pleasure is questionable. From the station” Mall of the Emirates " recommend to take a taxi.
In November: from 10-00 to 17-30.
In December: from 10-00 to 17-00.
In other months: from 10-00 to 19-00.
Access to the water Park is free and unlimited for guests of Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Jumeirah Creekside Hotel, Madinat Jumeirah and Jumeirah Beach Hotel. The last hotel is very well remembered for its unusual architecture, in the photo below (click on the photo to enlarge) it can be seen in the background.
Access to the water Park is free, but only once if you stay at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, Jumeirah Living World Trade Center or Jumeirah Zabeel Saray Royal.

Those who wish can purchase a one-year pass for 999 dirhams. This annual ticket includes unlimited access to the Park, discounts in bars and restaurants. This is a good option for those who rest in the UAE twice a year.
An organized trip to the water Park Wild Wadi Waterpark is worth from 85 to 100 $. This is comparable to the price of admission. Taking into account the complexity of the journey to the Park by public transport and the cost of a taxi, we recommend a tour to Russian tourists.
The Park is stylized under the theme of adventures of the famous character of Arab folklore named " Juha”("Juha"). Russians do not know this character, and even search the Internet for our tourists does not save. In fact, the Russians know this character well, but under the name of Khoja Nasreddin. The stylization is not particularly noticeable to visitors, and in this category we put the water Park Wild Wadi solid “two”.
This is not satisfied in other water parks in Dubai. From April to September every Thursday at 19-00 Wild Wadi Park is closed, and at 20-00 open again, but only for women. The administration ensures that at this time the staff on site will only be female, and the surveillance cameras will be monitored only by women. The entrance costs 195 dirhams for visitors above 1.1 meters and 145 dirhams for visitors below 1.1 meters. Boys under the age of 8 are allowed, but prepare documents to confirm the age.
Slides and rides:
This slide, where the visitor moves on the tubing not only down under the force of gravity, but also up, where it is pushed by water jets from the pumps. Weight limit-120 kg, height-from 1.1 meters. Children up to 1.1 height or up to 50 kg weight can ride, but on a double tubing accompanied by an adult. To be honest, no unique impressions on this hill tourists do not get, rather this hill should be called “image”, because in the world there are only two. A ride is worth at least once “for show.” In the photo on the left (click on the photo to enlarge) at the bottom you can see part of this attraction. In connection with exclusivity, there is always a queue. Prepare to lose 10 to 40 minutes of time.
The height of this slide – 32 meters, length – 120 meters. The visitor falls down almost vertically, gaining speed up to 80 kilometers per hour. An interesting technology of the start gives a feeling of sharpness: at first the visitor is closed in a small capsule, and then the floor in this capsule is opened, and the visitor falls down. The slide is closed, which further escalates the situation. This slide is really scary. The height limit is from 1.1 meters. Weight limit-up to 136.4 kilograms. This attraction closes 45 minutes before the Park closes. The administration of the water Park is very proud of this slide, it is difficult to say why. A few years ago, it was completely renovated, declaring the most terrible water attraction in the UAE. Is that so? Check yourself and make your own conclusions.
JUHA'S DHOW AND LAGOON!
This is a whole complex of water activities for children, including 5 slides, waterfalls, water guns and large vats, overturning water on the visitor. Children in Wild Wadi Waterpark will not be bored. See it on the photo on the right (click on the photo to enlarge). BURJ SURJ! This is a group attraction. A very long slide with a wide gutter, where visitors move out on a large tubing. In such a tube is placed up to 5 people, the total weight should not exceed 365 kilograms. Unfortunately, the administration of Wild Wadi does not report the exact figures of the length and height of this slide. It feels like 150 meters in length it is exactly there, and maybe more. The height limit is from 1.1 meters.
The attraction is similar to the previous one. Visitors sit on a special 4-seater "cheesecake" and roll down a wide chute. On the way there are three places called “tornado”, these are sharp turns, where cheesecake begins to ride up and down along the walls. The height limit is from 1.1 meters. Weight limit-up to 495 kilograms for four skiers.
This attraction is called”lazy river". It is very long here – 360 meters. In addition, very deep-sometimes up to 2 meters. Children should be on this attraction under the supervision of adults. The administration also recommends that children wear life jackets, which are given free of charge. As you can see from the photo on the left (click on the photo to enlarge), this recommendation is carried out by few visitors.
It is a river with waterfalls, rapids and waves up to 1 meter high. Available to all visitors, but children must be supervised by an adult, it is recommended to wear a child's life jacket.
Swimming pool with artificial waves, up to 1.5 meters high. It is the largest such attraction in the UAE and the whole middle East. Open to all visitors, regardless of growth.
WIPEOUT AND RIPTIDE!
Swimming pool with waves for surfing. Allowed visitors from the height of 1.1 meters, although the children on it is clearly nothing to do, see the photo on the right. It is believed that this wave simulation system is one of the four most powerful in the world. The figures are really impressive-the pumps pump 7 tons of water every second. The overall experience of the Attractions in the Wild Wadi water Park is a bit, but all impressive in scope. This Park takes not quantity but quality. If you compare it with other parks, it is difficult to determine the winner, as the price of entry is about the same everywhere, and the composition of the slides is too diverse.
