Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi

Basking under the Abu Dhabi sunshine, rushing down water slides, and getting that sun-kissed, happy glow is a sign of an incredible day. That is what it feels like after you’ve spent an entire day splashing up a storm at Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi, one of the city’s most incredible attractions. Located on Yas Island, just 20 minutes from Abu Dhabi city and with an area spanning 15 football pitches, this enormous waterpark has an Emirati theme. It follows the story of a young local girl on a quest to find a legendary pearl.

For those wondering, the pearl does exist, and you can spot it at the top of Jebel Dhana, the park’s towering centrepiece. It is pretty massive, so there is no way you can miss it.

Daredevil rides and epic slides

Once you are in Abu Dhabi Yas Waterworld, there is so much to do. With 40 popular rides and slides, you’ll be laughing, squealing and screaming in joy (and a little bit of terror – depending on your fright levels). It is essential to know that every ride has height restrictions, simply for the safety of your children.

On to the rides we go! Give the world’s first, largest hydromagnetic-powered, 238-metre long, six-person tornado waterslide, Dawwamma a go, followed by the insane three-metre-high waves on Bubble’s Barrel, which has the world’s largest surfable sheet wave for flow boards and bodyboards. For thrill fanatics, dial up the levels to 100 because that is the Liwa Loop. Imagine the ground beneath you suddenly giving way, and you are now freefalling down a high-intensity slide. How is that for an extreme adrenaline rush?

For the folks who prefer laidback rides, there is the Al Raha River or the lazy river, where you can just lay and float without a care in the world. Perfect for younger ones!

Eat and chill

Beat your hunger with the many dining options available at the park, from kids-friendly items to fresh salads, sandwiches and pasta. Skinny’s Frozen Treats is sure to keep you staying cool with frozen lemonade and ice-creams.

Suppose you are heading to Yas Water World Abu Dhabi in a larger group of 4 or 6. In that case, you can rent out the private Al Waha cabanas, where you get a VIP butler service, a delicious menu, complimentary towels and the works. A fabulous day with a luxurious twist!
