Located in the heart of Dubai with stunning views of the surrounding city, Wild Wadi stands up as a truly world class water park. Wild Wadi boasts exceptional safety standards, exciting themes and a genuinely eclectic mix of attractions for all ages and interests. While many well known water parks can be conquered in half a day, Wild Wadi requires a full day to truly get to master it.
Rides for thrill seekers including wave machines, slides and storm machines. You must be taller than 1.1 meters to ride these rides.
- The Jumeirah Sceirah – The tallest water ride outside of North America, The Jumeirah Sceirah, a 120 meter slide where visitors reach 80 km/h.
- The Burj Surj – A collection of large, fast downhill water slides and bowls where groups of 2-5 riders face each other as they spin, scream, speed and eventually splash into a pool at the end.
- Master Blasters – 14 gravity defying solo or two person slides. The water jets shoot people uphill as well as down and take advantage of tunnels, drops and jumps. One or two people can ride at once.
- Tantrum Alley – 5 more connected slides for groups of 2-4. Faster than the Burj Surj, with more spins and a massive bowl known as the eye of the storm. Wild Wadi’s website gives this 5/5 for speed and thrills!

Rides for Kids
Most kids rides and activities are kept within easy walking distance so nobody wanders off. Wild Wadi pulled all the stops in making a broad range of inventive ways to have fun with water.
- Juha’s Dhow and Lagoon – designed for families, the Dhow has over 100 imaginative water based activities including racing slides, water guns and waterfalls. The structure is inviting, colorful, themed and guaranteed to put a smile on any kid’s face.
- Action River – A not-so-lazy river for kids and grown ups. The Action River is fast moving with occasional waves. Exciting and fun but parent supervision is required. Life jackets are supplied for less than confident swimmers.
- Breakers Bay Wave Pool – The largest wave pool in the middle east is, of course, in Dubai. The pool produces horizontal and vertical waves up to 1.5 meters tall in five different configurations. Parent supervision is required for children.
Wild Wadi offers great areas to relax before or after going on rides. There are plenty of lounge chairs and places to tan both near and away from the kids area.
- Juha’s Journey – A slow moving, 360 meter long lazy river for the whole family. The path of the river takes you near waterfalls, through caves and on a tour of the whole park.

- Get there early – Wild Wadi is a big place with lots of rides, we recommend getting there extra early to avoid the queues and make the most of everything.
- Check for offers – Check with your hotel to see if they have any offers available. Often they will have vouchers to admit one person from your party in for free which can be used on more than one day.
- Know the rides – Each ride comes with a speed and thrill rating which are printed on boards around the water park. Reading these will give you a great insight into what you can expect from each experience. Particularly useful if you don’t like surprises.
- No need to walk – Don’t enjoy walking to your next ride? Wild Wadi transports you uphill on inflatable rafts by propelling you with water jets.
- 450 working lifeguards – Quick responding medical staff for a positively safe experience that lets you put your mind at ease if you have children.
- Areas to relax – Sunbeds and a relaxing lazy river for parents and those who would like to recline while the kids explore the rides.
- Bus – From the center of the city you can catch the Metro red line to the Nekheel Metro Station then catch the 88 or the X28 straight to the park.
- Taxi – All taxis will know Wild Wadi Water Park and it is located along one of Dubai’s main roads by the ocean, Jumeirah Rd. The park is very close to The Palm – Dubai’s manufactured, palm shaped islands.
- Bike – Travel down Jumeirah Rd and turn right when you see Dubai’s police academy. The park will be on that street.
- The park is themed around the legend of Sinbad, who comes from Arabian folklore.
- Wild Wadi is owned and operated by Jumeirah who also own the Burj Al Arab – the worlds first and only seven star hotel which can be seen from the park. Its a beautiful hotel known worldwide as ‘The Sail’.
