They are focused on safety and friendly staff. The rafting is highly recommended. The air park and the swing is great fun. The zip line is fine and do not expect much as it is a short one.

Even though this wonderful picturesque oasis in the desert has a zip line, world class kayaking, I was there to ride the incredibly perfect man-made generated waves. The waves are 2 meters high and perfect, either a right break or a left break. The session is for up to 6 surfers at a time, and lasts for 55 minutes. The... More

So worth a visit if you're in Dubai! It's about 1 hr and 45min drive from downtown. I recently went while on a one day layover flying through Dubai. I booked a spot about a week ahead of time, reservations are def recommended; they were sold out about 3 days prior. They run different waves (beginner, intermed, advanced, rights, and... More

While I never made it into the park, I was upset when I got there and there was not one booking for the entire day for anything!! I read all of the tourist info that was given to me at the hotel and it did not say I needed to prebook, just the cost of each event. There is a... More

We do advise all hotels in the neighborhood as well as on our website that pre-booking is always necessary for rafting/kayaking & surfing in order to avoid disappointment at the time of arrival.

I went with a group of surfers and felt there was not much for someone who doesn't surf... While my friends were enjoying their time surfing in the wave pool I went for a walk around and could only find one kids pool where I could swim, which I found too small and boring, so I had to wait for...

Thank you for your review! To begin with, we are the only Adventure park in the UAE ( with some water based activities) and cannot be compared with the other traditional water parks in the region. We hold an advantage over them, in the way that we can cater to both the adventure seekers as well as the non adventurous... More

Thankful for the genius head/s for coming up with Wadi Adventur.
