Abu Dhabi is the capital of the desert state of the Emirates. The up-and-coming city of millions is home to the newly opened yas water world ticket offers with a number of the world’s wildest water slides – and with Abu Dhabi’s Formula 1 track and the Ferrari World theme park as neighbours.
There are plenty of activities for the whole family in Abu Dhabi. Yas Island offers a water park, Ferrari Theme Park Abu Dhabi , Formula 1 track, beach, marina, concert hall and now also a newly opened water park with 43 attractions for children and adults.
And the amusements really range widely. From cozy covered areas to the smallest ones with shallow water and adapted water slides, to the completely wild rides with loops, free falls and the feeling of flying through the Arabian desert air.
Water slide with loop
Take the Jebel Drop, which may have the park’s best view, but is also one of the outdoor water park’s craziest delights. A slide with a colossally long, almost free fall that gives hysterical speed.
Right next to it is Hamlool’s Humps , designed to give you the experience of being airborne. At high speed, you will get the feeling of flying over the bumps on the roller coaster in a way that will surely get your heart pounding. You are lying in an open pipe and a mischievous brain can easily imagine all kinds of accidents here.
If you want even more excitement, get in line for the Liwa Loop. Here you are shot off in a closed tube, so you can’t escape, but on the other hand, they haven’t slowed down either. On the contrary. You are almost shot out through the large transparent tube, because you have to have enough speed to make a loop on your way out through the track.
Super children’s areas
Thus, there are plenty of activities for the older children of the family – including the older males – but the smallest ones also have perfect opportunities to develop themselves in Yas Waterworld.
For the children, Marah Fortress is absolutely ideal with six different slides, water cannons, geysers and lots of other fun activities. The little pods can easily spend a whole day alone in these surroundings. The children’s areas are covered by large sails, so the little pods can enjoy themselves for hours without being scalded by the beating sun.
It only takes half an hour to get from Dubai to Yas Waterworld, and it’s a quarter of an hour’s drive into the center of Abu Dhabi. With Ferrari World and the Formula 1 track as neighbours, however, you can easily spend a few days on Yas Island, and in Yas Waterworld alone , the whole family can easily spend a whole day.
A good tip for a hotel in Abu Dhabi is the Beach Rotana in the heart of the city . It’s a sandy beach, palm trees and lots of sunshine – right in the middle of the city
