It’s waterpark season and we are sooooo ready for it! Our usual plan of action is to start close to home and work our way South so the first stop is always Iceland Waterpark. Aside from it being a stone’s throw away from where we live, the prices are rather welcoming when you compare them to the Dubai and Abu Dhabi waterparks. It has to be said though, that there always seem to be sections of the waterpark that are not accessible to due maintenance which in a way is good news because nobody wants to go on rickety, run down waterslides but a bit of a let down if you have plans to experience the full array of attractions in one visit. The fact that it is the largest waterpark in the UAE means that even though some of the features are not accessible there is still enough going on for you to have a full waterpark experience. Thankfully every time we’ve been, the ‘kids cove’ which is the real reason we actually go there, was always open to the public.
Here’s a peek of our last trip to Iceland Waterpark that got us thinking about doing it again.
Next on the lineup, we will hit the Dubai parks and then down to Abu Dhabi to wrap up the season
- The newly opened Laguna Waterpark at La Mer: UAE Resident rates 129 AED at the gate 99 AED for online tickets
- Wild Wadi Waterpark : UAE resident rates 149 AED adults, 69 AED kids
- Aquaventure at Atlantis: From 225 AED per person (check out our video from our last visit)
- Legoland Waterpark: GCC rate 165 AED
- Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi: 250 AED adults , 210 AED kids
Although there are other smaller parks in between Ras Al Khaimah and Abu Dhabi, this year we are focussing on the “greats” and I must say, it’s a healthy chunk of change that is going towards keeping us cool this summer!
Look out for more detailed reviews after we visit each park!
Ciao for now! xxx
