“Fun day out”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

When you eventually manage to find this place it really is a great day out. We did the white water rafting, air park and giant swing. The staff were excellent, well trained, and friendly. Safety was taken seriously, which was reassuring.
Tip: you have to pre book some activities. Telephone in advance to organise this as you can't do this online.

Hi,

Thanks for your positive an helpful review. We're working on improving the signage in/around town to make it easier to find and there will soon be an online booking system to facilitate advance reservations (always a good idea as you point out).

We hope to welcome you back again in the future to try out some of the other activities available, like surfing or kayaking!

Kind Regards,

Wadi Adventure

“Lots of water-based fun in the heart of Al Ain”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Wadi Adventure is one of the UAE's latest activity destinations, and makes for a fantastic day out!
I didn't go surfing, therefore cannot really comment on that; however, the kayaking, rafting and climbing obstacle were awesome. Plus, zip-lining across the park is something you shouldn't miss out on doing!
The instructors are a pretty cool bunch and know what they're talking about - plus they made us go rafting several extra times :p
The only reason the place loses one point is due to the location... it is pretty far if you are based in Dubai :(

Hi,

Thanks for your review, we're glad you had such a good time and were well looked-after by our instructors. I think you'll agree, it's worth the trip out from Dubai!

Come back and try the surfing sometime - we have excellent surf instructors from around the world and quality equipment as part of the package. Just make sure you call and reserve in advance because the pool can get booked-up ahead of time and we are strict about not having too many people in there at one time.

Kind Regards,

Wadi Adventure

“Not what we expected and expensive”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

After visiting the website and having contact with Wadi Adventure we drove from Oman to Al Ain for a nice day at Wadi Adventure. Finding the place was not very easy. When we arrived they informed us that the surfing was fully booked and we could only do rafting and climbing activities. Very disappointing because they did not informed me about that when I was in contact with them through email. After the rafting and high ropes course we left because it was not what we had in mind. They charge a lot of money (activities and for the food in the restaurant) comparing to other things in the UAE. The place looks very nice but looking at the price you have to pay it was not what we expected.

Hi,

Sorry you had trouble finding Wadi Adventure, we suggest our guests use an online mapping service such as Google Maps or Bing for directions to the park. We are clearly listed on both. Also we provide coordinates on our website that can be used in most popular in-car satellite navigation systems. We are also trying to get approval for additional signs to aid our guests through the many roundabouts of Al Ain.

The surf pool is generally booked up in advance so if you are interested in surfing it is a very good idea to reserve a space ahead of time. If you haven't surfed before (or not for a while) it is also a good idea to get a lesson.

Our prices are benchmarked against similar facilities internationally and include a great deal of personal attention from our staff to ensure your safety. It is difficult to compare against more traditional water parks elsewhere in the UAE because we are focussed on adventurous, exciting activities that require a positive approach and a willingness to learn in order to get the most out of them. All current pricing information is available on our website.

Kind Regards,

Wadi Adventure
