My wife and I booked an adventure package and took our son who was out for a visit. Let's just clear up one thing up front, this is a serious adventure park, not a family water park with slides and things! When we were there, there were professional kayakers from no less than 12 countries doing winter training in preparation... More

We had so much fun here. The adventure package included white water rafting, the rope sky trail, zip wire and swing. It wasn't busy and we didn't queue for anything. Best to visit in cooler months, it was too hot to do the ropes course more than once. The staff seemed well trained and were friendly. The rafting was the... More

Thank you for your review! Glad to hear that you had a great experience at Wadi Adventure. The Adventure package, being the best of the lot - caters to all without any prior skill or experience and is quite fun. Why not learn an Olympic sport (kayaking) and also scale the heights at our climbing wall next time you visit... More

the pool is simply amazing for people who wish to learn surfing, but nothing is suitable for young and/or short children. They do not allow access to children who are not tall enough: be careful when you plan your visit.

Thank you for your review! As a safety feature we cannot take in kids below 1.2 meters for any of our activities with the exception of swimming pool and the low ropes course. Having said that, we have proposed to built a themed water park adjoining to the Wadi Adventure facility - in a year or so - thereby catering... More

We arrived here after searching for this for an hour. We could see it in the distance but the road and signage to the site from the main roads is desperately lacking. We got there just as a 2 hour surfing window in the wave pool was ending fortunately. The it was swimming for an hour and then again surfing... More

Thank you for your review! Please note that we have opened the surf pool (usually reserved only for surfing) as an open beach at certain times during the day which allows anyone in the park to have a feel of the pool with the waves on; the timings are as follows: Sun - Thur | 5pm Fri - Sat |...

Wadi Adventure is a great day out! The facility is clean, well laid-out, the equipment is in good shape and the staff are well-organized and obviously well-trained. We had a one-hour kayak lesson and went on the high ropes course at the airpark, and in both instances we were given ample instruction, helmets and other safety gear, which really enabled... More

I went there after 2 months craving for some surf and it was really awesome. Choose you waves type (right,left , a frame) and your level. Great to go with friends or even alone.
