Thrilling slides, one-of-a-kind rides, and relaxing rivers, the United Arab Emirates is home to some of the world’s best water parks. While choosing a favourite can be quite difficult, Wild Wadi tops the list for many. Since the day the park opened its doors, Wild Wadi has received rave reviews and even ranks number 11 out of 388 on Trip Advisor's Best Things To Do In Dubai list. The very first water park to pop up in the Middle East, it's location lends it an unbeatable backdrop. Situated across the gorgeous Burj Al Arab, the park offers slides and rides with a view.
Why You Must Visit Wild Wadi Dubai
Wild Wadi is one of the most popular theme parks situated in Dubai and boasts an arsenal of rides and slides. Perhaps the most well-known ride in the park, Jumeirah Sceirah is the tallest and fastest free-fall water slide outside the Americas. Climb up 32 metres and take in sweeping views of the park before flying down the 120-metre tandem slide at an incredible speed of 80 km/h (50mph)! At Tantrum Alley, take on three tornados and downhill waterslides. Or, defy gravity on the Master Blaster aquatic roller coaster that shoots you 15 metres above the ground before sending you on a thrilling ride propelled by high-powered water jets.
There’s also a huge interactive baby and toddler friendly play structure with over 100 water activities including slides, water guns, climbing frames and a dumping bucket. Whether you want to amp up the adrenaline or have a relaxing day with the family, Wild Wadi is, without doubt, one of Dubai’s most popular attractions.

Wild Wadi Reviews
Lovely way to spend 3 hours while in Dubai There are lots of water tubing rivers that enable you to enjoy tog with young kids. We have a 5 and 6 year old and they loved it. There are 3 adult water tubing spirits but not for the faint at heart. Food onsite is average but lots of options and close to beach and Jumeriah Beach Hitel if you wanted to exit and return later. You get a watch band which allows that. Lockers everywhere and lounges galore both in shade and in sun. Free access when staying at any Jumeriah hotel chain which is great. They have shops onsite for misc water goggles/bathers and rash tops and towels. Safe and spotless!
