Great place for adventure thrill seekers. Rafting the wadi (which also has an extreme route for more experinced rafters/kayakers). Try the Airpark for a fear factor style adrenaline pumping activity, my kids loved it though not as easy as it seems :) Food is quite nice. Overall great place to spend the whole day.

Rafting is fun and has plenty of scary moments. The Airwalk is challenging even for veterans, especially the top level. And the swing: better not see what it does beforehand if you are at all nervous. Just get on, like I did, regret it at first, then laugh at yourself afterwards.

I went to practice kayaking as a beginner. They have training schedule. Its very challenging indeed, the water circuit they have makes you feel like facing real rapids.

Wadi adventure's wave is not really a good one...we've hired a private session of rights only, at the highest level available (they had one pump under maintenance, so the highest was level 6). The take of is fun and the first sight you have of the wave's wall looks great. However, you better perform a cut-back as a first maneuver,... More

Thank you for your review! Actually, at the moment we have no ‘close out’ wave (while all the other wave shapes were available for selection), as the middle of the wave isn't powerful enough; but that has been conveyed over when the booking was made. Surfing to the shore is never recommended, even in natural conditions with sand, as you... More
