(eap) The Arabian Miral Group is expanding Yas Waterworld on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi by some 16,900 square meters. A total of 18 new attractions, including a total of 3.3 kilometres of slide sections, are to be added until 2025, in order to increase the water park’s guest capacity by around 20 percent. The new area of the park will open under the name of “Lost City”, where guests will embark on an exciting journey in search of hidden treasures and secret passages. The coming new attractions include a boat ride, racing and tube slides, family raft rides and a “Duelling Master Blaster”. The slides are supplied by Canadian manufacturer WhiteWater West.

Miral announced that the attractions will include the highest slide in the UAE as well as a ride integrated into a water slide system. This is set to offer guests a thrilling ride with a 15-meter drop. But also, younger guests are catered for. So, there will be new smaller versions of exciting slides such as a “Mini Boomerango” and a “Mini Dawwama”, a mini blaster fusion ride for children with two blaster sections.

Mohamed Abdalla Al Zaabi, CEO of Miral Group, commented: “This expansion is a further addition to our world-class attractions and experiences on Yas Island. It is also a testament to the realization of our vision to make the island a leading global destination for entertainment and leisure. We are proud to contribute to the development of Abu Dhabi’s ecosystem while enhancing its global appeal as a tourism hub.”

Yas Waterworld is part of Yas Island’s leisure and entertainment landscape, which includes attractions such as Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Warner Bros. World and SeaWorld Yas Island, which opened this year. ■
