Yas Waterworld

Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

The Basics

Yas Waterworld classifies its attractions by thrill factor so visitors can easily choose the right rides. Adrenaline fiends should start with slides such as the near-vertical Liwa Loop, while those wanting something tamer might enjoy the Rush Rider wave, lazy river, and wave pools. Kids will like the play areas, and the whole family will love Cinesplash: a 5D experience complete with water effects.

Visitors can prebook full-day tickets online with optional priority ride access. For maximum convenience, there are tours that include tickets and return transfers from Abu Dhabi or Dubai. Theme park aficionados, meanwhile, can double the fun with a combo ticket to both Yas Waterworld and nearby Ferrari World. Other options include adding park entry to an Abu Dhabi tour, so you can see the sights before cooling off at the rides and pools.

Tips for Hassle-Free Visits

You’re not permitted to take food and drink into Yas Waterworld, and carrying cash or cards isn’t practical. Instead, load a wristband at the gate with money for refreshments and locker hire. Plus, bring a watertight pouch for your phone, or store it in a locker before hitting the rides.
