Miral announces expansion plans for Abu Dhabi water park

Immersive destinations and experiences creator, Miral, has announced a 16,900m² expansion to Yas Island’s Yas Waterworld in Abu Dhabi.

Set for construction completion in 2025, the expansion will see the addition of slide sections and an expected 20 per cent growth in guest capacity through the addition of 18 new rides and attractions, taking the park total to more than 60 rides and experiences.

Once open, the park will include the UAE’s highest slide, as well as the Gulf Cooperation Council’s first amusement ride in a water park, that is integrated within a waterslide complex.

Mohamed Abdalla Al Zaabi, group CEO of Miral, commented: “This expansion marks another addition to our world-class attractions and experiences on Yas Island, and a testament to achieving our vision of positioning it as a top global destination for entertainment and leisure.”

For the last decade, Yas Waterworld has immersed guests in the coolest rides and attractions as well as shopping and dining options – the new expansion will enable guests to embark on a journey to discover hidden treasures and secret passages, intertwined with fun attractions.

Features of the new expansion include a swim up bar, a high-thrill boat ride, racing and tube slides, family raft rides, and a duelling master blaster. Mini thrill seekers can look forward to smaller scaled versions of Yas Waterworld’s most iconic rides, such as a mini-Dawwama, which will be the region’s only kids’ mini blaster fusion ride with two blaster sections and a thrilling rattler end section, as well as a mini-Boomerango to give little guests that big ride sensation minus the fear.

Yas Waterworld is part of the wider offering of Yas Island that includes attractions such as Ferrari World Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi, CLYMB Abu Dhabi, Qasr Al Watan, Yas Bay Waterfront which is home to the UAE’s largest indoor multi-purpose venue Etihad Arena, the world’s first-ever Warner Bros themed hotel, and the newly opened SeaWorld Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.
