Hacks To Avoid Crowds at Laguna Waterpark Dubai

Visiting a water park when in Dubai is a no-brainer: it is the perfect way to escape the scorching heat of the desert while spending some quality time with your friends and family.

Some would say the best time to visit the Laguna Waterpark would be in the summer months. Keep in mind, however, that these are the peak months of tourism in Dubai, so you'll have to deal with swarming tourist crowds.

The best time to visit the water park would be late-Febuary and early-October.

Visiting During Ramadan

Many are skeptical about taking a trip to Dubai during Ramadan because of the holiday rush, but there is a way around it. If you start your day early, hit the attractions right around the time they open, and avoid the weekends, you can enjoy the holiday season in the UAE to the fullest.

Laguna Waterpark Dubai Reviews

Went there during winter (don't go during winter). Had an amazing time there but it was too cold we were shivering the entire time. Advising to get a Unlimited food pass for 50AED only at the counter as it is going to be expensive if you buy it directly inside.

Tips to make the most of your Laguna Water Park Visit

  • Visit the park on a weekday if it is possible. It’s far less crowded than the weekends!
  • Try not to save The Loop for the end of the day - on busy evenings, the queue will close 20 minutes prior to the park’s closing time.
  • To cover all the rides at a sedate pace, leaving time for relaxing in the pool, we would suggest atleast 4-5 hours in Laguna Water Park.
  • Get your tickets to Laguna Water Park online to avoid long lines.
  • If you purchase the day pass, you can come and go as many times a day with no extra fee. This means, you can spend your morning in the park, head out for lunch to one of the many eateries in La Mer and come back to the park post lunch.
