Wild Wadi Waterpark is one of the iconic waterparks of Dubai and an unforgettable aquatic adventure for the whole family.
The waterpark is located just in front of the renowned Burj Al Arab and has more than thirty rides and attractions for the guests to enjoy.
The aquatic park is inspired by the tales of Juha, an Arabian folklore character.
Juha is also the waterpark’s mascot and can be seen all over, urging visitors to play safe, have fun, and get soaking wet.
With more than one million visitors annually, it is one of Dubai’s most-visited water parks.

What to expect at Wild Wadi Waterpark
Each ride at Wild Wadi Waterpark is awarded a thrill rating, so it’s easy to make the right choice depending on your adrenalin appetite.
Younger kids will love the leisurely float along the gentle currents of Juha’s Journey – a 360-meter (1180 feet) long lazy river.
The elder kids prefer the rapids of Flood River and the massive Breaker’s Bay, which is home to the largest wave pool in the Middle East.
Or, if you want to hit the adrenalin high, check out the 32 meters (105 feet) high Jumeirah Sceirah slide, where you will reach speeds of up to 80 km/h (50 miles per hour).
At Tantrum Alley, the adventurers sit in four-person inflatable tubes and then spin and swirl their way through a course of downhill waterslides and twisting tornadoes.
Besides the rides, guests can also try out other watersports such as surfing.
You can put your board skills to the test on the Wipeout and Riptide challenges.
