Yas Waterworld will soon be home to the UAE’s highest slide.
We’ve got some massive news for you. Yas Waterworld, the ultimate aquatic adventure destination on Yas Island, is set to break records and redefine the thrill-seeker’s paradise. That’s right, the world-famous waterpark is expanding, which means more thrill and spills for you.
Miral, the development behind Yas Island’s immersive experiences, has announced a 16,900 square-metre expansion that promises to take the excitement to unprecedented heights. The countdown has begun, with the completion slated for 2025.
This expansion is not your average splash in the pool. Brace yourselves for 18 new rides and experiences that will catapult Yas Waterworld’s guest capacity, totalling the ride count to over 60 thrilling attractions.
Once completed, Yas Waterworld will house the UAE’s highest slide. It’s also going to be the GCC’s first amusement ride in a waterpark — integrated within a water complex. Imagine a 15-metre-high drop with 19 other adrenaline enthusiasts just like you. Our tummies are tingling already.
For the past decade, Yas Waterworld has immersed visitors in The Legend of the Lost Pearl, reflecting the UAE’s rich pearl-diving heritage. Now, get ready for a new chapter – The Lost City. This thrilling adventure invites guests to uncover hidden treasures, secret passages, and fun attractions, seamlessly blending with the park’s existing Emirati-inspired architecture and iconic characters.
The expansion isn’t just about height and speed, it’s about creating an all-encompassing experience. And while there’s plenty to do for adults, mini thrill-seekers get their share of fun with scaled-down versions of Yas Waterworld’s iconic rides. The mini-Dawwama and mini-Boomerango promise big excitement minus the fear.
So mark your calendars and start practising your cannonballs – Yas Waterworld’s expansion is about to make a splash.
