|About these ratings|
Flanking the foot of the Burj Al Arab sits Wild Wadi Waterpark, a collection of water-themed rides and play areas. The entire park is modeled after the legend of Juha, who used to sail with the notorious Sinbad. Legend has it that Juha's dhow, a traditional sailboat, capsized during a severe storm, leaving him and his children stranded on a mysterious island. Upon discovering fresh streams and waterfalls, Juha and his family lived out their days in a leisurely manner. You and your kids can spend your Dubai getaway Juha-style, flying down waterslides and coasting along lazy rivers.
Recent visitors rave about Wild Wadi, dubbing it a must-do while in Dubai. One TripAdvisor user writes, "We had an amazing time. […] We intended to go for an hour or so and spent the whole day there."
Wild Wadi Water Park opens every day at 10 a.m. and closes between 6 and 8 p.m., depending on the month. General admission is 215 AED (just under $60 USD) for adults and 175 AED (roughly $48 USD) for children. To save some dough, consider waiting until two hours before the park closes to purchase your tickets in order to receive the "sundowner" discount.
