Ride a waterslide

Near vertical drop, shark-infested waters or a leisurely swirl around in a rubber ring. Dubai has a waterslide to suit your style – you just have to find it. We’ve always been massive fans of the Jumeirah Sceirah at Wild Wadi and are delighted that several new slides have been added to the park recently. Wild Wadi is a must visit for tourists and Dubai residents alike and situated next to the Jumeirah Beach Hotel. Just as fun is the Aquaventure waterpark in the Atlantis Hotel on the Palm Jumeirah. This park is set in an expansive 42 acres of pools and slides and has some of the most imaginative rides anywhere in the world. Our favourite has to be the Shark Attack that slides you along a viewing gallery alongside live sharks and rays.
