Dubai’s Wild Wadi Waterpark to launch new waterslide
Dubai's Wild Wadi Waterpark is set to unveil its new and improved Jumeirah Sceirah water slide on 4th September, promising thrill-seekers a new and daring ride.
Replacing the original Sceirah slide, which was dismantled in January, the new attraction features two tandem slides.
The 33 metre high slides start at the top of a six storey high tower from where riders can get a 360 degree view of the landmark Burj Al Arab hotel and Dubai's skyline.
Standing on a trapdoor they are released rapidly descending down the 120 metre slide through a tunnel at a speed of over 80 km/h.
The new slides are one of 30 attractions at Wild Wadi, 13 of which are inter-connected, to allow riders to experience one after another without leaving the water.
The waterpark is designed around a tale from Arabian folklore featuring Juha and his seafaring friend, Sinbad and attracts 890,000 annual visitors.
