Dubai’s Laguna Waterpark, plus a new comedy club

Emirati comedian Ali Al Sayed guest stars on this week's episode of Straight From The Camel's Mouth

How many cheeseburgers will you burn off with a day at Dubai's new Laguna Waterpark?

And are the slides faster than the guy flashing his headlights and trying to overtake you on Sheikh Zayed Road?

These questions might not be the first thing on your mind as you hurtle down the park's free-fall drop slide, but the Time Out Dubai podcast does things a little differently.

Of course, we're also bringing you all the important details on this week's episode of Straight From The Camel's Mouth.

It features celebrated Emirati comedian Ali Al Sayed, who joins Time Out Dubai's Editor-in-Chief Holly Sands, Digital Editor Scott Campbell and Music & Nightlife Editor Tim Skinner to answer all the important questions.

Ali also reveals why The Little Mermaid is better in German, and his plans for a new comedy club in Dubai. We're certainly excited.
