Wild Wadi Water Park

9.2/10

The Wild Wadi Water Park is situated in Jumeirah, an area in Dubai, United Arab Emirates next to the Burj Al Arab and the Jumeirah Beach Hotel. The water park is operated by Jumeirah International, a Dubai-based hotelier.

Wild Wadi is an outdoor water park with a heated/cooled wave pool, multiple water slides and two artificial surfing machines. In addition, the park has the largest water slide outside of North America. Another feature of the park is an 18 m (59 ft) waterfall that goes off every ten minutes. The water park also has two gift shops, three restaurants and two snack stands.

It was featured in The Amazing Race 5 and The Amazing Race Asia 1, in which teams had to slide down a 21 m (69 ft) drop.

Rides

Master Blaster slides are best described as "uphill water roller coasters". Riders can sit in either a single or double ring, and are propelled uphill by high-powered water jets.

The Master Blaster rides include:

  • White Water Wadi
  • Jebel Lookout
  • Wadi Leap
  • Hos'N Hurler
  • Falaj Fury
  • Wadi Twister
  • Wadi Basher
  • Flood River Flyer

Ring Rides are the traditional downhill slides. Riders can choose to sit in either a single or double ring.

The Ring Rides include:

  • Tumble Falls
  • Falcon Fury
  • Rushing Rapids
  • Thunder Rapids
  • Tunnel of Doom

Family ride is a two part ride. The first half of the ride, Summit Surge, blasts riders uphill into a pool area. The second half is known as the Rushdown Ravine which takes riders on a 170 m (560 ft) downhill slide.

Jumeirah Sceirah is the tallest and fastest free-fall water slide outside of North America. Rising to 33 m (108 ft) with riders reaching speeds up to 80 km/h (50 mph).

FlowRider rides, Wipeout and Riptide, are surfing simulators that shoot out more than seven tons of water per second in a thin sheet across moulded foam structures. These rides produce a realistic wave effect which allows riders to body-board, knee-board or surf.

Breakers Bay is the largest wave pool in the Middle East. It produces parallel and crossing 1.5 m (4.9 ft) waves in five different configurations.

Juha's Journey is a 360 m (1,180 ft) long river which allows guest to relax and slowly float around the park.

Juha’s Dhow and Lagoon is Wild Wadi's play area for children and has over 100 water games/rides.

Hire a cabana for the day - get to the front of the queues, waiter service food and drinks, locker and cool box of fruit and drinks - pure bliss :)
