“Great park, no queues in Ramadan.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We had a great day out at Yas waterpark. Since it was Ramadan there were almost no queues for any of the rides but enough people around to make sure it didn't feel deserted. The staff were noticeably helpful and attentive and all the rides well maintained and designed. Highly recommended and a great way to beat the summer heat.

“Awesome !!! I have been to a lot of water parks but this is best among all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

I am from chicago and I had to visit UAE on a business trip.

Our trip to yas waterworls started at about 1pm, myself, my family and my little brother, we were welcomed by a very friendly crew, In brief..they all know that u r coming to have fun and enjoy and they make sure u get what you came for with there assistance, jocks and smiles, this is the first water park where the crew actually play with you, they encouraged my little brother and cheered for him, this made us all feel comfortable. When u go in a trip with little kids thier fun comes on top of ur list :-)

No long ques and that is because of the wide variety of games,

Water spray nozels spraying the floor is a nice and brilliant idea

Trainers and life guards everywhere

Amazing details everywhere,

We stayed there till the last minute,

I will definitely go back again and again.
It is a must go if u go to UAE.

“Amazing experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Absolutely loved this place! Been there once, wanna go there again, spent like 7 hours and wanted to stay there longer. I went there with my family on Thursday ladies night, which starts at 5 pm and ends at 10 pm. It was a lot of fun and very comfortable having only women around. The rides were good, but not VERY thrilling. Best was the wave pool. There were a couple of souvenir shops and restaurants too. There is a variety of kids rides, which are alot of fun for the adults too. Also, the Ladies night is overly crowded, the queues for all the rides were long, like 50-60 mins waiting for each ride, but it was totally worth it.

Thank you for reviewing us. It is wonderful to hear that you had an amazing experience. Ladies Night does get extremely busy and the queues do get long but please know that we do everything in our power to manage the queue in a timely manner. The best tip would be - arrive early so that you get the most out of your visit, which is obviously what you did. Thank you for sharing your experience with us, we look forward to seeing you back again.

“Fun for the whole family!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Yas Waterworld offers a wide selection of rides accommodating everyone. The rides are quite different to any we had experienced in other water parks and were really fun.The queues are long though, and the only way to avoid them is by getting a premium pass. Even though the tickets are expensive, they are worth your money giving you a full day of thrill and fun.

Hi patfamily987,

Thank you for leaving us your review. We are very excited to hear that your day here was fun for the whole family. The queues do get long during our busy periods and the premium ticket is available for those guests who have the option to follow a shorter queue. However please also note that we work as quickly and efficiently as possible when managing our queues so that guests get to experience the excitement in actually going on the ride.
Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you back again!

“Fun day out!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We had a very nice day out at Yas at the beginning of July but have to say that the entire family have decided that we prefer Wild Wadi for various reasons! The rides were fun but by midday the queues were very long for most of the rides. The paving is very hot and only small sections of it are cooled with water misters. We hired a cabana which was great and also good to get out of the midday sun and the food that we ordered was lovely and presented in little bento boxes which was a great touch.

Hi McKarabia,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are sad to hear that we are not your favorite in the region. The park does get very busy around midday, that’s why we advise our guests to arrive early so that they get the most out of their visit. We do also try our best to make sure that the queues are managed as quickly and efficiently as possible. The mist sprayers installed along the pathways assist to some extent, however the sun is quite strong at this time of year, the team is definitely trying its best in dealing with this, and your feedback will be shared with our team. All in all we are pleased that you had a good time and that the cabana was a pleasant experience for you and your family.

Thank you for sharing your day with us. We look forward to seeing you back again.

Best regards,
Michael Anthony
