For a full day experience, this futuristic Yas Island waterpark spans an area of around 15 football pitches, with 43 rides, slides and attractions – five of which are one-of-a-kind.
Yas Waterworld visitors will be able to try the 238-meter long, world’s first, and largest hydromagnetic-powered, six-person tornado waterslide. For adrenaline seekers there are three-meter high waves on Bubble’s Barrel, which has the world’s largest surfable sheet wave for flow boards and body boards. The Bandit Bomber, a 550–meter coaster, is the first with onboard water and laser effects. Riders can shoot jets of water at targets, drop water bombs and trigger special effects, while people below can spray them with water as they pass.
Sitting atop Jebel Dana, the towering core of the park’s altitude-defying summit and measuring eight meters in diameter, the park’s gigantic pearl is Yas Island’s newest landmark. The park draws on Abu Dhabi’s heritage and has ‘The Lost Pearl’ as its theme. Visitors follow the story of a young Emirati girl on a quest to find a legendary pearl as they make their way around the attractions, which include a souk and pearl-diving exhibits.
