Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi

Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi is a waterpark in the United Arab Emirates, located on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi. The park is home to 45 rides, slides and attractions – five of which are world-firsts, including Bubble’s Barrel, a FlowBarrel 10 Double Sheet Wave ride, and Dawwama, a hydro magnetic-powered 6-person tornado waterslide.

The park is set across 15 hectares of land and has received wide industry acclaim, including being named as the first waterpark in the Middle East to be certified with the Estidama One Pearl green sustainability rating.Шаблон:Citation needed

The park pays tribute to the Emirati heritage of pearl diving through a unique theme, ‘The Legend of the Lost Pearl’, which is reflected in the waterpark's design and each of the waterpark’s rides and attractions.

The waterpark has also played host to the World Flowboarding Championships since 2013.

Amazing place to chillex! Great rides and beautiful decoration all over the place. No direction signs to get to the park. Make sure to wear flip flops as the floor is extremely hot! Enjoy it !!!

This water park has a handful of amazing rides. It is a good activity to do on a hot summers day as there are slides, lazy rivers and more. My favorite ride had to be the Dawwama!

Great rides compared to wild wadi. Big Park so it doesn't get crowded as WW on ladies night. Book online to avoid queues. Floor is extremely slippery!! Guards and staff are nice in general
