Yas Waterworld – Abu Dhabi

by GO GlobeHopper

Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi is a waterpark with Emirati heritage at its heart. The Lost Pearl is the central theme, following the story of a young Emirati girl on a quest to find a legendary pearl. Sitting atop Jebel Dhana, the park’s towering centerpiece, sits an enormous pearl, bringing The Lost Pearl theme to life visually. Spanning 15 football pitches, this amazing full-day park experience brings you and your family exhilarating water-based activities across a range of thrill levels.

The waterpark is open year-round and features over 40 rides, slides, and attractions – five of which are one-of-a-kind. Try the world-first, largest hydromagnetic-powered, 238-meter long, six-person tornado waterslide, Dawwamma, or check out three-meter-high waves on Bubble’s Barrel, which boasts the world’s largest surfable sheet wave for flow boards and bodyboards. The Bandit Bomber, a 550-meter coaster, showcases onboard water and laser effects, with riders shooting jets of water at targets, dropping water bombs, and triggering special effects. Passersby below them, meanwhile, can also get in on the action, spraying riders with water as they pass. All that activity should work up an appetite, and you’ll find various restaurants on-site, as well as a souk (market) and pearl-diving exhibits.

Yas Waterworld is on Yas Island, just 20 minutes away from Abu Dhabi city. It’s surrounded by other world-famous attractions including Ferrari World and Warner Bros. World™.
