Splash Spots in Dubai
Whether you’re someone who loves to just sit by the beach and float in the figment of your imagination with the dipping sun’s orange fingers kissing your face or the sort of a person who loves to race against his adrenaline rush on a thrilling water ride, Dubai has got it all for you.
Dubai fulfills the needs of every specie of water lovers- fast or slow, lazy or agile; you can get a spot that suits your crazy or tired senses both. As for me, let’s see I am a combo sandwich of both the sides- the lazy and agile. Sometimes I am a sluggish snail slacking by the seaside murmuring:
River, lazy river
carry me slowly out to sea
Past your drooping willows
and your mighty cypress tree
Shadows cover muddy banks
fish jump at their prey
Your scent fills my mind with memories
just like a song from yesterday
Other times I am a shark, zipping through the water slides in the water parks at the speed of flash screaming at the top of my lungs, only to land in the water with a watery splash to sing, “No more sad songs.” And there is no need for you to wonder where in the world I am having such a medley of fun. Cause let’s scream together, I scream, you scream, “My Dubai.”
So let’s count the water filled fun zones for ya’ll:
- Wild Wadi
You have probably heard of this place, as it is Dubai’s oldest water park or ‘you have already been there, done that.’ In the latter case, you have a telepathic understanding with me that this water park in Dubai isn’t a place to ignore. In fact, it is the first place that comes to mind when we mention the water parks in Dubai.
This 1999s original water park has fantastic water rides for both the loner and the family. When you are there don’t forget to ride the Jumeriah Sceirah, which is a 120m slide packed with speed and thrill. Raft-based slides are also present at the park, and the Tantrum Alley allows four people to enjoy the ride at once.
- The Beach Waterpark
The Beach Waterpark is located on the Dubai Marina and is the one spot for the full family fun day. It entertains juniors and adults alike, offering rides such as the slides, trampolines, and climbing walls. The Splash Pad, don of the area, has specially made a lot of name with all its pretty fountains, climbing frames, and tipper buckets to win the hearts of kiddos with you, didn’t I mention it’s a wicked family fun water place.
- Wadi Adventure
This water spot has hit the water show in Dubai just recently and is a water park to double and triple the dose of fun. Here you get to not only zip through the slides to feel the power of lightning, but you can compete with the waves themselves by availing the facility to surf, kayak, and white water raft. High waves with a height of three meters are generated every 90 seconds to give you a challenge while surfing. Not surprised yet? Go for the zip line, climbing wall, and rope course and take the notch on fun higher.
Here is the Dubai’s biggest and best-est water park and a kick-start as a full package of fun. Linked by the lazy vein of a river, the park is divided into two major sections or towers, as they call it, named Neptune and Poseidon. Both “the fast and the furious”, as well as the slow snail-like rides, dot the water park. For those who want to give a treat to their thriller heart, Leap of Faith and Revenge in the Poseidon’s tower are best. So, here is to infinite fun.
- Legoland Water Park
This one is for kids out there, of course, I have to think of my junior brethren while crafting a list for you. The splash spot is present at the Dubai Parks and Resorts. The majority of the slides and rides encourage the little ones to move their muscles and race each other. Good for their growth, ya know. For the brave big children, the park offers single slides that provide cheap thrills akin to Sia’s song, which means lots of fun. Whereas, for the toddlers, the park has the Duplo Splash Safari. There are some brain exercises too. Wondering how that is possible at a water park?
Oh, you are in for a surprise. This place lets your young ones to “Build-A-Boat.” Here children can make their own boats and then check if their little engineering tricks can stand the current of water. Crazy fun, right? Makes me want to travel back in time.
But instead of time traveling, Imma present-travel to one of these cool water parks to beat the heat. Woo-hoo, here screams the Tarzan intrinsic to my soul.
