Yas Waterworld makes a splash in Abu Dhabi

  • Yas Waterworld makes a splash in Abu Dhabi
Spanning an area of around 15 football pitches, with 43 rides, slides & attractions – five of which are one-of-a-kind - the new Yas Island waterpark will open to the public on January 24.

Yas Waterworld visitors will be able to try the 238-metre long, world’s first and largest hydromagnetic-powered, six-person tornado waterslide. For adrenaline seekers there are three-metre high waves on Bubble’s Barrel, which has the world’s largest surfable sheet wave for flowboards and bodyboards. The Bandit Bomber, a 550–metre coaster, is the first with onboard water and laser effects. Riders can shoot jets of water at targets, drop water bombs and trigger special effects, while people below can spray them with water as they pass.

The park draws on Abu Dhabi’s heritage and has ‘The Lost Pearl’ as its theme. Visitors follow the story of a young Emirati girl on a quest to find a legendary pearl as they make their way around the attractions, which include a souk and pearl-diving exhibits.

The park will open daily in winter from 10am until 6pm and in summer from 10am until 8pm. Tickets will be AED 225 (US$ 62) for adults and AED 185 (US$ 51) for children below 1.1 metres in height. Children 3 and younger go free.
