Top Pros- The Liwa Loop ride- not to be missed, the BEST ride in the park- only catch is, ladies you have to wear a backless suit or else they wont let you on the ride. The floor opens beneath your feet and you are whooshed away in a swirl of water and speed.
Another ride is the the Yadi Yas, it looks like a lazy river but with waves, crazy amazing waves.
The showering facilities and changing rooms and lockers are excellent too.

Cons- weekend queues and queue management. Just avoid going there on the weekends.

Thank thanzi

Hi thanzi,

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are so happy to hear that you found your favorite and it happens to be Liwa Loop. We love your description of your experience. Yas (yes), Yadi Yas is quite cool! We will definitely pass on your good words to our teams.

Weekends and peak times are quite busy and therefore we try to advise our guests to arrive early so that they may have a full day of fun.

Thank you again for sharing your experience with us and we hope to welcome you back soon!

Best regards,
Michael Anthony

I've been here twice, once right after it opened and another last week. It seems that it is still under construction in some places (there was a 'fence' made of posts in buckets of concrete) and the water guns on the Bomber rollercoaster ride still don't work. At the same time, some things already seem in disrepair (2 water guns pointing at the Bomber ride were broken, I saw a few rusty screws etc.)

Besides that, it's an awesome place with a huge range of really fun rides. My favourite is a Dawama which I could go on repeatedly all day. :D

Hi itburns2013,

Thank you or leaving us a review. We have many world or regional firsts in the park and therefore there are times where some of our attractions demand more of our attention. Be sure though that we are always trying to improve our areas for the betterment of our guests experiences’. We do have regular maintenance for our attractions as this is a necessity for both safety and overall park operation. We thank you for your feedback and we will definitely follow up with the ongoing works that are a consistent part of the park.

We hope to welcome you back again!

Best regards,
Michael Anthony

You need to be lucky and visit when it's quiet as when it's busy...my god it's busy!

We spent about 4 hours with the place pretty much to ourselves and we had to be dragged out. Brilliant rides and great fun in general. Definitely a good way to cool off.

Thank Steve A

Hi Steve A,

Thank you for writing us a review. During our peak periods and weekends we do get pretty busy, but we always advise our guests to arrive early, it really does make a world of difference. Glad you got to experience the park to yourselves, its like an overflow of adventure when you have so much to do and so little time. It’s great to hear that we are a cool way to cool off!

Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you back soon!

It is the most exciting water park in Abu Dhabi ideally for family with kids. The best time to visit will be during winter as otherwise it will be too hot..They have around 40 plus rides. This will be a gem in desert where kids will find it as a paradise.

My friend was visiting from England and decided to take her children to Yas Waterworld. My family and I could not go with them as my children were in school. I gave her our annual passes and told her to see if they could get a discount on their tickets. My friend and her family were treated despicably by security and were practically accused of being criminals! Her and her children were still traumatised and shaken long after they returned to me. I then found out that security had confiscated two out of the four of our annual family passes! Our four passes had cost nearly 5000AED and were less than two months old.....do you honestly believe that we would knowingly risk losing these passes?!!! One of those confiscated is that of my FIVE YEAR OLD Daughter. My little girl is heartbroken that her pass has been taken, and wonders why her big sister still has her pass but she doesn't. She used to love carrying it through all by herself. We are a family with young children, who have spent a LOT of money at Yas Waterworld (passes, food, drinks, photos) and we have done nothing wrong. We should not be punished, and our five year old certainly should not be. My husband has been in touch several times by email and has either been ignored, or had unsatisfactory, robotic replies. I urge you Michael Anthony, or any other manager who can authorise the return of our two passes, to use the compassion and common sense which is clearly lacking in the other employees we have dealt with.

Hi Pipp9,

Thank you for leaving us a review. We are sad to hear that your five year old has been disheartened by the recent occurrence. Firstly, please know that our teams are briefed with certain responsibilities and the most important in ticketing is that we are following the ticketing terms and conditions. We understand that you may have done this in a sincere manner but when you signed the application forms when applying for your annual passes you agreed to terms and conditions, one very important one is that your annual passes may not be exchanged or used by anyone other than the person who’s photo is on the card. Therefore we have this facility of photo ID annual passes. By handing these over to your friends, it was deemed as a fraudulent activity and that is the reason we have confiscated your passes.

We hope that this explains the situation better and we hope you understand that it is not our intention to treat you indifferently. We love our guests and we enjoy having them over for visits and more than that we appreciate their patronage. Thank you for sending us your thoughts and we hope you understand that we were following our agreement in the application that was signed by your family.

Best regards,
Michael Anthony
Business Excellence Manager
