Ice Land Water Park Reviews


Ice Land’s location in Ras al Khaimah has its own advantages and disadvantages. Since it is an hour away from Dubai, the park is less crowded than the other popular theme parks in the city. This ensures that the queues for the rides are not long and all rides and attractions are easily accessible.

Food and drink outlets are present throughout the park. Other amenities include cashless facilities, prayer rooms, free life jackets and designated smoking zones.

Ice Land also has a private beach that makes it more than just a water park. One can even access the beach for the entire day without purchasing tickets for the park.

Iceland Water Park was a big for our family (2 adults, 1 x 11 year old, 1 x 6 year old). We have been to many water parks across the world so why was this one such a hit? 1) Small queues meant many more thrills for children 2) So many shaded areas with good seating 3) Reasonable food and drink prices in park 4) Fun rides 5) Great kids area, the best we have seen in a waterpark 6) Reasonable entry price 7)Nice beach

We had a great day and could easily stayed longer - the kids wanted to!! We will definitely be back

Neil, TripAdvisor, May 2017

The Iceland waterpark is truly an amazing place to see. During the visit, we saw rainforest showers, a soccer field with sprinklers and even a huge waterslide. The food court is big and spacious with lots of options to choose from. Seeing it from outside doesn’t do it justice – you need at least one whole day to spend inside. The place even gives you beach access for a price and cabanas you can rent for the day.
