The water park was amazing and we had an thrilling experience with all the rides, The Dawwama was really exciting and a must experience we really enjoyed it since we were a group of 6 ppl my favorite was the LIWA LOOP it was awesome to spend time in the lazy rivers as well to relax after the rides, not the mention the great staff very cooperative specially Alaina the fun lifeguard. A must experience if u are visiting Abu dhabi.

Hi Travel3rDubai,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us and to hear that it was thrilling is fantastic. It is wonderful to hear about all your favorites, indeed Dawwama is a popular ride with the fans; rounding up the fun with a relaxed session on the Lazy River is a great way to unwind after all the other thrilling rides. We will definitely convey your good regards to our team and to Alaina. We hope to welcome you and your family back soon!

Thanks again for sharing your feedback with us.

Best regards,
Tim Mow

“Not bad but not great!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

Reaching Yas Waterworld is a challenge without a GPS. Only 100mtrs from the entrance is the first sign board of "Yas Water world"
Sufficient parking, staff at the entrance "D'souza" was very good and helpful.
By the way, unfortunately 2 major rides were closed.
Few available Rides were good, "dawwama" was our first ride with my son and really enjoyed. Kids play area is also fun for toddlers to 7 yr old. Then there is a youngsters play area where my kids enjoyed.
Lazy river is not great, just average.
If you have issues climbing steps, then be aware, most of the thrill rides have large number of odd steps (these are narrow with slippery edges and rusted steel plates). Recommend you wear silicon shoes for climbing and also good for water slides.

Safety point of view, good rating for their staff.

Don't drink from the foul smelling water cooler. Advise your children!!

Also rides are closed before 18:00, infact some were shut by 17:45. So don't wait for last minute.

Food was expensive, but typical theme park rates.

Hi Jeetendra C,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We have tried our best to accommodate for a pleasant journey when travelling to the park as we have limited directional signage due to municipal regulations. We have used our website as a means to assist with the journey where we provide the GPS coordinates and have included step by step directions on the best routes to get to us. We will pass your good regards to our colleagues at the parking.

Our attractions do undergo maintenance as many of them are the first of their kinds in the region/ world. We do regular safety and maintenance checks to ensure the best quality of fun and excitement for our guests. Dawwama is a fun favorite and we are glad you tried it out first. We have tried to accommodate for all age groups and personalities. Yes, the lazy river is just that but we have introduced the Yadi Yas as a step up from the laziness, it has waves so there’s no time to laze around…

Health and safety is of highest priority to us and therefore we do take everything into consideration, we are working hard to minimize the effects of wet floors, and will definitely investigate the rusted steel plates that you have mentioned.

Thank you for your good regards to our colleagues – we will be sure to pass them along. Our water fountains are cleaned throughout the day and disperse fresh filtered water, we will communicate to our team to make sure these are monitored more often with cleaning. We prepare for closing at around 17:45pm if our rides are empty, if we have guests, then we accommodate for our guests. We take on board your comments with regard to food pricing, but hope that you enjoyed the fresh, high quality.

Thank you for your review and we hope to welcome you back soon!

Best regards,
Tim Mow

“Amazing Waterpark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

This one is really amazing water park located on yas island in abudhabi. Must try are dawaama, falcon's falaj, bomber. One can buy combo pass of yas water park and ferrari world. This will save almost 150 AED per person. Avoid visiting park on weekends.

Hi waveszoom11,

Thanks for leaving us a review. It is great to hear that you have found your favorites; all of your choices are definitely popular with our guests and us! The Yas Park Multipark Pass is a great choice for guests visiting the island. We are glad you found it suitable. Yes, we are generally busier during weekends that’s why we encourage our guests to arrive early so that they may start their fun early.

“Perfect Way to Cool Off”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Awesome fun for kids and adults. Had a blast here. The only downside is the lines for the waterslides. Waiting 45min to go on a waterslide for less then a minute, you have to ask yoursef if its really worth your time, IT IS! haha
