My children have been going there with school all last year and just chose it again as their afterschool. They love it and it's a great deal. I have taken them surfing outside of that so i can only comment on that. I have 3 so the cost is not at all something we can do as a regular hobby.... More

A place for body fit. Not suitable for toddlers, more of physical activities. Great experience with rafting. Other activities needed to be booked well in advance, perfect for groups not less than four per group. Better take the package as it is cheaper and great value.

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

Looking for something different to do whilst in the U.A.E? Well, we were and what an absolute pleasure to visit Wadi Adventure! From the emails exchanged with Nanette to being greeted by the friendly and professional Faisal at the reception to basically every single person at the park!

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!

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.
