Dubai is home to a number of attractions, but it’s the city’s water parks that make the real buzz. Get inspired and visit one of them with your family. Here is an overview of the best water parks in Dubai.
The largest water park in Dubai offers the world’s most adrenaline-pumping water attractions that have become legendary. So if you want to experience excitement, you should definitely not miss this park in the sprawling Atlantis The Palm resort. Here you can experience, for example, a vertical descent from the Leap of Faith slide. This will lead you to a transparent tunnel and sharks and rays will swim past you. Or you can try the Poseidon’s Revenge attraction, in which you free fall to the ground in a transparent closed tunnel.
Even smaller children will enjoy the fun here, for them there is a water playground full of children’s tunnels, slides, and climbing frames, and private beaches. The park is created in the Mayan style and consists of two main towers – Poseidon and Neptune, which are connected by a vast river transporting visitors between the slides.
The water park, which has been entertaining locals and tourists in Dubai since 1999, is also definitely worth a visit. But don’t worry that the water attractions are outdated, Wild Wadi slides and toboggans are constantly being improved and renewed. You can find it near the Burj Al Arab hotel and you can also enjoy surfing on artificial waves or going down a wild river. You can relax at the Breaker’s Bay pool, which is the largest in the Middle East.
Adrenaline enthusiasts must not miss the famous Jumeirah Sceirah slide, which is 120 meters long and can reach speeds of up to 80 km/h. Another great experience is at the Tantrum Alley attraction, which combines a steep slide with a pair of tornadoes. Up to four people can go down on the raft. For children’s visitors, the water park offers fountains, slides and water cannons, all adapted for small children, for example the mild river Juha’s Journey offers them an unusual experience.
Legoland water park
This water park is not to be missed by Lego lovers, both young and old. In the Legoland water park, which you can find in the Dubai Parks and Resorts complex, children will not only enjoy fun in the water but also practice their creative abilities. In addition to water attractions, the Aquapark also offers a lot of interactive experiences. Both older children up to 12 years of age, as well as smaller toddlers, who will be delighted by the Duplo Splash Safari attraction, will be entertained here.
For the older and braver, there are several large toboggans and slides where children can ride in groups or race against each other. They will test their ingenuity with the Build-A-Boat game, in which they can design a boat according to their imagination and immediately go sailing with it. Another attraction is the Build-A-Raft-River attraction, where you can again take a raft, modify it with soft Lego bricks and sail it down the river.
This most amazing beach destination in Dubai, as the Laguna Waterpark at La Mer Beach is sometimes called, lures visitors to a huge water slide complex with attractions for all ages. You can look forward to rafting on the Lazy River or surfing on artificial waves on the WaveOz 180 FlowRider simulator. It is one of only three in the world. Another attraction of the water park, which will satisfy all those who crave adrenaline, is the sharp Free Fall slide. For calmer natures, there is a huge swimming pool with a view of the Arabian Gulf.
Splash Pad is such a water playground in the Dubai Marina district. Children from one to twelve years old will have a lot of fun here, for example on an obstacle course floating on water, on climbing walls or trampolines. Of course, there are fountains, slides and tipping buckets with water. All this is under the supervision of trained lifeguards. You can end the day on the promenade that goes around the complex. It is full of restaurants and shops, and you can even find a cinema here.
With its 2700 square meters and 74 games, AquaFun is the largest inflatable water park in the region. Here you will find the world’s longest water slides or obstacle courses, all right at sea. You can climb over various obstacles or jump into the water endlessly here, as the water park offers a large number of monkey tracks or ramps. You can find the water park at the famous Jumeirah Beach Residences. The interesting thing is that from a bird’s eye view, the floating attraction forms the inscription Dubai.
