We were on a couples holiday and this was included. In two minds whether to go but decided to and we did enjoy ourselves - especially the 2 four seater wides over by themselves a bit. The start of the slides is interesting......but without children probably half a fray is enough.

Great place for family fun! The rides and slides were great and the food was beyond expectations. Staff were all friendly and went out of their way to help with anything. Only complaint - too many people! Went on all the rides without waiting when the park opened but towards noon and beyond, the lines were too long. The prices are a bit on the high side though. Otherwise, great family outing! Thanks for the great memories for my family.

Well I can't say this is the best water park I have been to. There are only three major slides. The majority are horizontal water jet type slides which take you around the park. They are fun but probably only need to be done once. The largest slide is definitely more intense than the rest of the park by far and worth a go if you like fast slides. The thing to be considered most about this place is the entry price. It is 305 Dirham (about $100 US/AUD) each. which in my opinion is not worth it. Located all around the park are photographers who take pictures throughout your visit and are available for purchase at the end of your visit. Common practice for most tourist attractions. Not a very common price though. We had 9 pictures taken of us in our visit and were offered to us at a 'sale' price of 325 Dirham (little more than $100 US/AUD) for digital copies only!!! 9 pictures for more than the the actual entry price! Maybe visit this park if you have young kids and are prepared to pay but don't expect too much.

Thank you for taking the time for sharing with us your Wild Wadi experience.

The design of Wild Wadi interconnects all of our slides, which was a world first back when we opened in 1999.  The first slide connects to 12 other slides which you won't have to get out of your tube.  This can give an impression of having one ride only due to single entry. If you were to go to almost any other waterpark in the world, you would ride 1 slide, then have to get out and walk up a tower to the start of another ride and then queue again (sometimes up to 1-2 hours for each ride).  We don’t think we have done a good job of explaining the interconnection of our slides. This is very unique and allows our guests to ride many slides with minimal wait times (in comparison to other waterparks around the world).

Regarding our rates, the prices that we charge for Admission, restaurants, lockers, and towels are benchmarked with our competitors. Our rates changes based on the season & to provide with great experience. We are sorry that you felt we were expensive. 

We hope you will reconsider to visit us again in the future.

Thank you.

Chris Perry,
General Manager.

We spent 4.5 hours in this water park in the last Friday of Ramadan month (July 2014). The park has many rides including the breathtaking Jumeirah Sceirah! Do not try it if you have ever had a heart attack or something like this.
The park is very nice but it has 2 weak points:
1) The entrance charge is high (about 75 USD per person)
2) They charge you 35 to 75 Dirhams (10 to 20 USD) per locker.

Other things are nice. Especially, the staff are very polite and friendly.

After 10 years of coming to Dubai ,we are never disappointed with wild wadi park ,it's clean the staff are true professionals. The rides get better every year , the up keep is always there priority never seen any rubbish on the floor. Our daughter is a daredevil so she tries every ride and her favourite is the jumeriah scarier.
