Wild Wadi Water Park
Area: Jumeirah Beach, Dubai
You just cannot top Dubai’s outrageously popular Wild Wadi Water Park for a family day out. Patrolled by hordes of qualified lifeguards, Wild Wadi Water Park is a safe environment that is a mega-hit with kids. There are 12 acres of pools, a wave pool, sun decks, a pirate ship, fast-food joints, and various rides. These include the white-knuckle 80 km/h Jumeirah Scierah.
Surf simulators and other rides are all well designed, featuring master blasters that jet propel you upwards and ensure the experience is not over too quickly. As Dubai’s leading water park, Wild Wadi is particularly busy in the summer—arrive early to beat the rush.
