We went here last weekend as waterparks are a great way to escape the July heat but still be outside and it was also the last day of their 241 promotion. Its a good watermark, the two big raft rides are good for thrill seekers but also good for wimps like me as you feel quite safe. The jet slides that take you round the park are good fun, you can go in these as a two or solo, however later in the day they get really busy and you have to wait in the pools in between the jets. I was quite disappointed in the lazy river as it really was lazy! It was better to walk than float through it. Its also quite layered so you don't have the space that you do in Atlantis nor do you have a beach which is a shame although you do get an excellent view of the Burj al Arab. I would visit this again if there was a 241 promotion but wouldn't pay full price for it.

This is unbelievable good - fantastic, superb! I cannot begin to describe how good this place is. So clever! Water going up hill- only in Dubai. No queues. Great value, Modern, simply the best water park in the world!

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.
