Iconic Emirati themed waterpark named Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi
Name for the newest entertainment destination on the leisure and lifestyle hub, Yas Island announced!
The eagerly anticipated waterpark on Yas Island enters its final phases of development with the unveiling of its official name and logo: Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi.
With its original and immersive theme which pays tribute to Emirati culture and the country’s pearl diving heritage, the iconic waterpark is set to welcome guests in the fourth quarter of 2012.
Visitors will be able to enjoy 43 rides, slides and attractions that follow the adventures of the waterpark’s main character ‘Dana’ – a young Emirati girl in search of a legendary pearl which brought prosperity to the people of her village.
“Visitors to Yas Island can see how far the construction of this landmark project has progressed. Last week we celebrated the topping out of Jebel Dana – the towering centrepiece and home of the Great Mother Pearl,” said Mike Oswald, Park Manager. “Soaring 45 metres above ground, Jebel Dana will be the newest tourism beacon drawing regional and international crowds heading to the island when Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi opens later this year.”
The Waterpark spreads across more than 15 hectares providing a full day’s entertainment with restaurants, shops and interactive games in addition to the many rides, slides, & attractions.
The Waterpark is located adjacent to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi on Yas Island and is set to become an integral part of the island’s entertainment offering which includes the Yas Marina Circuit and the Yas Links Golf Course. Set to open in late 2012, the Waterpark on Yas Island will be one of the leading waterparks in the World.
The Waterpark on Yas Island is developed by Aldar Properties and will be operated by Farah Leisure Parks Management.
