Blockbuster Second Year for Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi


The UAE’s first mega waterpark, Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi, is celebrating a second highly successful year, with over three million riders enjoying its top four tracked rides.

Since opening in January 2013, the park’s 45 attractions including Dawwama, Liwa Loop, Bandit Bomber and Slithers Slides have drawn celebrities such as the Tamilian superstar Rajinikanth, Macklemore and Dannii Minogue

Tim Mow, General Manager at Yas Waterworld, says: “Throughout its second year of operations, the park has continued to exceed all of our expectations. We have witnessed incredible visitor numbers, as well as an increasingly positive response from local, regional and international visitors.” 

The waterpark has also scooped a series of regional and international awards including two accolades from the world’s largest travel site, Trip Advisor. Based on guest reviews and experiences, the website awarded the park with its 2014 Certificate of Excellence, as well as the Travelers’ Choice Award.

“Still just two years old, the waterpark has already strongly grounded itself as a leading family-fun destination in the UAE, with a world-first offering and first-class level of service, ’ explains Tim Mow. “We would like to say a huge thank you to all of our guests who have visited the park in the past two years to experience our world-first rides and attractions, and we look forward to welcoming familiar and new faces throughout Year Three as we announce some very exciting news very soon!”
