Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi, the world’s leading water park, is set to reopen on August 4. The attraction has shared its health and safety measures in light of COVID-19.

Yas Waterworld will exclusively welcome annual passholders with valid online bookings on August 3, before opening to the public on August 4.

All guests, including annual passholders, must make online bookings before visiting, in order to keep the water park at the limited capacity of 30 percent.

There will also be thermal screening cameras, safe distance markers at all rides and outlets, contactless payments, modified ride capacity and adjusted shopping and dining experiences.

Leander de Wit, general manager of Yas Waterworld, said: “It brings me great pleasure to announce the re-opening of Yas Waterworld – we are thrilled to welcome back our guests who have waited patiently for the return of water’s greatest playground.”

“We would like to reassure our guests and staff that their health and safety remain our top priority and for this reason, comprehensive precautionary measures will be diligently implemented across Yas Waterworld,” added de Wit.

“We’re excited to be able to deliver a safe and enjoyable waterpark experience to all returning guests this summer.”

Visitors must adhere to the health and safety measures by wearing face coverings, following social distancing measures, cleaning their hands and opting for contactless payment.

In addition, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi and CLYMB Abu Dhabi have reopened on Yas Island.

Earlier this year, Miral CEO Mohamed Al Zaabi said he is not ruling out investing in more theme parks on Yas Island.

Al Zaabi said (via Arabian Business): “Our next attraction will be SeaWorld. We’re at a very advanced stage of design and we are on track to finish the construction by 2022.”

Yas Waterworld will open daily from 1pm to 10pm.
