WhiteWater West to equip Abu Dhabi’s Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi

WhiteWater West to equip Abu Dhabi’s Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi
April 17, 2012

The WhiteWater West waterpark company has announced that it has been commissioned to supply and manufacture 12 of 14 complexes for the highly anticipated Yas Waterworld in Abu Dhabi.

Located on a 15 hectare site adjacent to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, this waterpark is set to become one of the largest and most popular in the Middle East.

Currently under construction, Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi will feature the world's first Rattler® MEGAtube® waterslide, featuring 'rattles' which change shape in alignment with the different lengths of cylinders.

Another first will be SplashQuest®, a live action video game adventure that advances waterpark technology using the patented waterproof AquaGlove® or SplashBand®. Players activate dozens of fun water effects to score points while following clues to complete challenges as they actively explore the quest spread all over the waterpark.

Elaborate theming on many of the attractions, including two AquaPlay® multi-level interactive play structures, will support Yas Waterworld's celebration of Emirati culture, heritage and infrastructure.

Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi will offer two FlowRider attractions, the FlowBarrel Ten Double and the FlowRider Double

Other WhiteWater attractions being installed at Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi include:

• AquaLoop
• AquaTune
• Extreme River
• Family Waves
• FlowBarrel Ten Double
• FlowRider® Double
• Freefall Slide
• Inner-Tube Slides
• Kids' Slides
• SplashQuest
• Speed Slide
• SuperBowl
•  Whizzard
