We spent just over 7 hours at Wild Wadi and felt like we managed to squeeze in every ride. With lifeguards every 20 meters and far more rules and Acquaventure you got the feeling of being safe and we had no reason to question that.

Wild Wadi was most definitely busier than Acquaventure with us waiting up to 45 minutes in some lines to experience the slide, but this was self-inflicted as we had already experienced the slide and wanted to go back again when it was busier.

There are short-cuts for some lines like renting a Cabana, though a very expensive short-cut.

It would have been nice to see more tubes available at some of the entry/exit points around the slides, instead of forcing people to return to the bottom just to start riding some of the master blasters.

The food outlets around Wild Wadi were a little disappointing though, as was the quality of food served.

Thank you for your review. We apologize as we have not been able to make your day fun & memorable.
The design of Wild Wadi interconnects all of our slides, which was a world first back when we opened in 1999. You ride on the first slide, and then that slide connects you to 12 other slides without ever having to get out of your tube that takes you around the park. I don’t think we have done a good job of explaining the interconnection of our slides…this is very unique and allows our guests to ride many slides with minimal wait times (in comparison to other waterparks around the world).
The waterpark gets very busy on weekends as well as on weekdays after 12pm & it gets crowded very quickly. We recommend you to visit us on weekdays during opening timing from 10 am so you can experience the waterpark without the crowd.

We hope you would reconsider to visit us again.

Chris Perry,
General Manager.

My hubby and I spent our second wedding anniversary having an absolute blast here! Totally recommend. Bring your own towels, we spend £20 to buy on as none on rent!

Having visited lots of waterparks, this was OK, but nothing more. Atlantis on the Palm was better. Ones in Florida are better still. The Lazy rivers could do with being a bit faster, they are just too..... lazy! Would be better with more rides too.
