“Needs to shape up a bit more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2007

I have visited the Wild Wadi each time I have been to Dubai. I went in February with my daughter. Although she is only 8 years old I had to pay adult price for her as she is deemed to be too tall. Obviously I was not to best pleased by this. I found admission to be too high for what it has to offer. I noticed a few of the visitors had discounted tickets to ghain entry.

The water park is fun, but the novelty has worn off as far as I am concerned as I have been to other water parks apart from the wild wadi and these have more to offer, as well as cheaper prices.

Many of the rides are inter-connecting. The wild wadi needs more water slides. I note a few new attractions for younger kids have been introduced but it is not enough.

It is fun, and worth going for first timers but it needs to shape up for the repeat visitors.

“Favourite place in Dubai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2007

Wild Wadi is the only water park I've seen where the jets push you up the hills, often faster than you go down!

Be sure to avoid school holidays otherwise you'll be queueing for hours, possibly only going on a handful of rides in a whole day.

I highly recommend the body boarding!

“Fun for all - sort of”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2007

Wild Wadi if you think about the concept of being in the desert etc than its not too bad, in actual fact i enjoy wild wadi, i have been there a few times now and each time enjoy myself, the advertising of the amoutn of rides is untrue as most people said the 13 connecting rides is just that, connecting rides so its really one big ride.

however, if your in dubai with kids you shoudl visit wild wadi its a great way to kill time and enjoy the sun..

go early though to avoid ques

“wild wadi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2007

wild wadi has to be without a doubt the best day at a water park i have ever experienced!!!! I spent a week in dubai and visited the park 3 times as there is so much to do and every ride leaves you wanting to go on it again and again!
I would recommend it to anyone whatever your age as is caters for every need, not only was it clean, well presented but the staff were fantastic!
keep up the good work to everyone that works there and i hope to be back in 2 years with my son!!!
thanks for a great experience that ill never forget!

the life guards were excellent very patient, good fun and made my daughter into a surfer in one easy lesson!
