Our family has recently taken out a membership with Wadi Adventure, we love it! The wave pool is open every afternoon to the public from 5-6 and three times a day on the weekend. There is another pool if you prefer to swim without the waves. All other activities cost extra. My 7 year old had one surf lesson and... More

Thank you for your wonderful review! Glad to hear that you had a really great experience at Wadi Adventure. Your suggestions has been passed on to the respective departments. We already have taken action against the 'teenagers' with a full ban upon them. Why not learn an Olympic sport (kayaking) or test out the rapids and also scale the heights... More

Looking for something different to do whilst in the U.A.E? Well, we were and what an absolute pleasure to visit Wadi Adventure!

Although a 2 hour drive from Dubai an excellent place to learn to surf. The children thought it was amazing that they managed to catch waves standing up. While there they also went on the skyline, big swing and zip wire. A great day out was had by all.

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

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.
