- Imagine 12 acres (five hectares) of desert filled with 30 million liters of water and solely dedicated to having fun. That is Wild Wadi Waterpark. There are 23 rides to entertain and excite every member of the family and in Dubai, this place has been more than just a shelter for those wanting to escape the heat of the desert. Adrenaline seekers will love Jumeirah Sceirah; a 33-meter (108-foot) high slide with steep angles to propel riders up to 80 kilometers (50 miles) per hour. There is also Breakers Bay, which has a wave machine creating 1.5-meter waves (five-foot) all day. You won't have to wait for high tide to catch waves here. For the more relaxed adventure seeker, there is the water park family favorite, the lazy river. Juha's Journey is 385 meters (a quarter-mile) long and once you sink into an inner tube you'll want to ride its gentle currents until closing time. Safety is a prime concern at this gigantic water park. Wild Wadi has at least 90 lifeguards on duty at any given time to ensure its patrons' well being. So hit the rides and relax in this exciting desert oasis. Admission rates differ according the height of the visitor. So check website for further details.
