I have been to many waterparks but this is definitely by far the best ! All the family enjoyed it and it is a must do if you are in the area! Also the queues seem to be usually quite short but that is not because it is not busy but because the queues move fast! Definitely a different waterpark!

Definetly better than the reat of the waterparks I have been to in Dubai. The queues are short and move quick. It would be best to go around 4 as we did to avoid the sun. However, water coolers do help to keep the temperature cool.

Best part is that even in scorching heat, the walkways don't heat up and you can roam around the park easily barefoot.

Staff holding out boxes to submit ur belongings before each ride is very helpful and you can carry ur cellphone around that way to take pictures, a service not found in other waterparks I have been to.

The rides are all in one area so u don't get tired of walking around that much and the park stays open till 8 so you can also enjoy the sunset while relaxing in the wading beach.

Overall the park is very well maintained and offers a not to be missed fun day!

This park is nothing special. It is just a water park with slides and huge so in the summer months, you have to really do lots of walking and up and down stairs. There were hordes of people so it was unpleasant experience overall.

What is so annoying is being searched at the gate. Our water which we normally carry was confiscated by the guards! The park sells water and beverages at prices beyond my comprehension. Wild Wadi water 500 ml bottled water is sold for 7 Dirhams while at Yas Waterwold it costs 10 dirhams and yet the management replies to guests by saying that they benchmark their prices to other competitors and they think the prices are competitive! Well I just disproved that with the price of an essential commodity at any park claiming to be family friendly.

Now the food items are also exponentially highly priced. A family of 2 adults and 3 chikdren can easily spend the cost of 3 adult entry tickets!! This was not the case when we went to Atlantis water park or even wild wadi.

Dear Travelkit2011,

Thanks for sharing your experience with us from a recent visit to the Park. I am sorry that it did not meet your expectations when you visited us. We do have a strict food & Beverage rule, whereby food & beverages from outside are not allowed in the Park with the exception of baby food (which you cannot specifically buy in the Park) to avoid health & safety issues arising thereafter, it is also communicated on our website. We have drinking water fountains throughout the Park for Guests to use free of charge. As to food items, our outlets offer different options at different prices which are benchmarked with our competitors in the UAE. Once again, I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the experience as much as many of our other Guests & we do appreciate your feedback.

Excellent regards,
Tatjana Kuznecova

Really great fun family day out at this water park. Loads of water slides to try out. Plenty of sun beds available around the park. We would certainly return to this water park.

When visiting Abu Dhabi make sure you visit this attraction during a weekday morning-afternoon, that's when we visited.
There were no queues at all! Except early afternoon it got a lot busier, especially the ride called Dawwama
The rides are fantastic! I definitely recommend thrill seekers to go down the Liwa Loop, Jebel Drop and Hamlool's Humps!
The lazy river is also perfect, as the hot temperatures can get a little too much.
