Dubai is home to some wonderful architecture, and it's where visions of the future are being attracted into the current with ground breaking designs popping up all around the city. Maybe most spectacular of Dubai's attractions though is that the Wild Wadi water park, and that is why...
Dubai is hot, hot! Temperatures between June and September soar to over 45°C, and the sea fever hits 40°C in this period. Add this to the fact that between May and October it would be quite unusual to see a rain fall, and even throughout the ‘cooler' section of this year it merely sees possibly a mean of 15mm per month as an absolute max. This leaves you wandering in which all the new water could come from, and how it keeps being replenished awarded the high evaporation prices!
Well, it is perhaps the most sophisticated water park ever made. Set over 12-acres of what was formerly a desert, the Wild Wadi supplies families and thrill seekers with an oasis in which to take refuge during the heat of the day, even if your idea of a refuge is a 33m free fall reaching reaching 50 miles per hour! The park takes the kind of an Arabian Wadi, which is basically an oasis, and it follows a'Juha' theme which is a character out of Arabian folklore, and gives the playground that true ‘Theme park' feel that really brings it all together well.
If you are an adrenaline junkie like me, you'll be pleased to say that the park includes some of the greatest and fastest water rides in the world, with 24 state of the art rides tailor made for pleasure seekers. Included in the Jumeirah Sceirah, a 33m freefall'slide' mentioned previously, the many Master Blasters that are water established rollercoasters which propel you around using strong jets, the traditional Ring Slides which are a consistent favorite amongst children and adults alike and much more besides this
