Amazing place! little expensive, but the experience is too good! Do the Surfing, borading, etc. Do try the water rafting! Its the best! After water rafting, you wont have any energy. After rafting go and chill in the pool!

This was the second time we visited Wadi Adventure and had great fun even though we did have some spills. Our party consisted of adults and children and there was something for everyone. The Wake boarding was fun for both children and adults alike even though there was probably more times in the water than on the board. A 7... More

We visited at Christmas and tried the surfing... great fun. This time we tried the white water rafting.... my children are 14,12 and 8. Great experience but not for the faint hearted! Our guide in the boat was excellent and so skillful controlling the raft. We all loved it and look forward to doing it again!

Almost in the middle of the desert! White water rafting, kayaking, surfing & high ropes. Most of the staff are very friendly & knowledgeable, the western staff were a bit surly. Highly recommended if you love watersports.

Perfect facility for learning to surf. Great tuition and a wave every 90 seconds. Lots of friendly staff, you can always get a session and someone will always take a selfie for you.

So, firstly this is not a 'waterpark' in the sense you may think. Don't expect slides and loads of pool related activities. What there is, is pretty good - you can learn to surf, a giant swing or zip line. The white water raft experience was really good - plenty of thrills and spills and a good adredaline rush. Make...
