Dubai waterpark gets world first

Dubai waterpark gets world first
March 16, 2011

Dubai's Wild Wadi waterpark has launched a world first, a triple tornado thrill water ride, named Tantrum Alley.

The 250 metre long Tantrum Alley is the only one in the world with three funnels, two open and one enclosed. During the minute long spinning and dropping experience, the ride has over 75,000 litres of water pumped through it

The expansion of Dubai's favourite family entertainment destination by Jumeirah, the Dubai-based luxury leisure and tourism group, also include another new ride, Burj Surj.

This ride, which consists of two large sections of downhill waterslides and two looming bowls, has guests seated on a four-person tube, travelling downhill to the bowls, where they are hurtled into a spiralling spin and then dropped into the slide, ending with a splash in the pool.

Explaining the development Wild Wadi Water Park, General Manager Chris Perry stated "Wild Wadi is all about fun and is an ideal place for families to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. As water park industry leaders, we remain committed to Jumeirah's promise to stay different and offer our guests the latest wild rides that cannot be found anywhere else in the region."
