Find a place to stay

A hurtle down at 80km per hour will leave you feeling weightless on the Jumeirah Sceirah free-fall slide. Hold your breath as high-power water jets propel you uphill on the Master Blasters roller coaster. A Wild Wadi Water Park holiday is all about fun so book a Dubai hotel nearby and brace yourself for an amazing adrenalin rush.

Family fun

Resembling an oasis and featuring Juha and Sinbad, the friendly characters from Arabian folklore, the Wild Wadi Water Park is heaven for kids. Juha’s Dhow and Lagoon features safe slides, a pair of racing slides and water guns, while the Summit Surge and Rushdown Ravine can take a whole family of four on a fluctuating ride in a ring. More relaxing is Juha's Journey, a long and lazy river cruise. For maximum comfort reserve a Wadi Caban with sun loungers, towels and prime views of Dubai’s Jumeirah Beach.

World of waves

The first barrelling wave to be built in the world, Flowrider ejects about seven tonnes of water per second to produce waves that are real enough to be surfed. Body-boarding and knee- boarding are also practised, but if you don’t have the skills you can still splash around in Breaker's Bay, the largest wave pool in the Middle East and suitable for all ages.

Practical information

During October entrance to the Wild Wadi Water Park is strictly restricted to women only, although boys under the age of eight are allowed if accompanied by a female guardian.
