“fun to visit”
Reviewed 13 September 2012

It is a beautiful, huge place, fun for everyone, the one problem in there is the weather, it is too hot, when we went, we went there twice, at the middle of the day, the water was boiling, we couldn't tolerate it and left. if you go there in good weather months you will have some real fun. for kids its safe, the Olympics pool is perfect, the games and rides are of real fun.because of the many fun rides available, it does not become crowded, so mostly you will not queue for a long time. it is a clean place indeed, the air conditioned cabins for rent are an excellent option if you have a baby to keep away from the sun and relaxed indoors. In all it is a fun experience just avoid going in hot weather to enjoy the best of it

“Great day out!”
Reviewed 8 September 2012

Very quiet, didn't have to queue! Great day out! The floor was quiet hot so you have to look for the shade. The stand selling shaved ice is a must!

“Bit quiet!”
Reviewed 7 September 2012

Bit too quiet, clean but not worth the trip. I know you don't want it too busy but there was no life there really. Had a nice day but wouldn't go again.

“AMAZING SLIDES!”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

I went here with my family during the Eid. It was a very nice place. They have a number of slides that you can try! I am not really into it due to the fact that I am extremely afraid of heights and the adrenaline rush that comes with it. However, in Iceland I was able to conquer most of the slides, except for the highest slide that they have. I still want to come back, maybe on that day I will do it! :D If only the weather was a bit cold it will be my best swimming theme park experience ever.

“Avoid on a public holiday!!!”
Reviewed 22 August 2012

Unless you love queueing, and being surrounded by lots and lots of people creating a hot, stuffy and very smelly environment ...... avoid at all costs on a public holiday or if the car park looks more than 5 lines deep!!!

In fairness had we visited a few weeks before they closed for refurbishment I think we would have had a better experience as on working days the car park never looks particularly crowded!

As well as the park being absolutely packed with mostly men on the public holiday this Monday, the water was as previous reviews have stated, hot enough to make a cup of tea with !!!! .... not very pleasant in 45 degree heat!!! .... even the huge swimming pool was boiling hot - they cannot have had any chillers working which beggars belief really in the current Dubai heat and with the amount of people visiting the park over the holiday weekend!

The park was incredibly smelly due to the huge amounts of people and this created a very unpleasant experience wandering around the park.

Iceland looks old as well - it seems very dated and old fashioned with lots of very bright blues and whites in the colour scheme. The materials used for the staircases for queuing don't seem to have been well thought out as they were incredibly hot under foot!

There is a matting around the park that we thought was designed to be able to walk on in bare feet but we found that impossibly uncomfortable!

Taking away the disadvantages, the rides themselves are quite good - it was just impossible to get to go on them all because of the horrendous queues. This was further exasperated by the fact that many rides were closed or being refurbished!

There were no obvious guides to help us navigate the park and the different rides!

This isn't a cheap family day out so my advice would be to go on a normal working day when hopefully it will be a different more pleasurable experience!!...

I am looking forward to reviewing the other water parks in the area soon ... and I believe from my partner that the Atlantis Park in Dubai is much much nicer! ... although again in fairness that wasn't visited on a public holiday!
