The Middle East’s only water park designed for families with children aged 2-12 opens with more than 20 water slides and attractions
The wait is over as LEGOLAND® Water Park, part of Dubai Parks and Resorts, the region’s largest integrated theme park destination in the region, opened the gates to the Middle East’s only water park specifically designed for families with children aged 2-12.
Visitors enjoyed LEGOLAND Water Park’s 20 water slides and attractions on opening day, each offering a different and fun-soaked experience for the whole family to appreciate.
Highlights include the highly anticipated Build-A-Raft River, where families customise their own raft using LEGO® soft bricks, before floating down a lazy river. Continuing the interactive fun, Build-A-Boat invites children to build their boat model using countless LEGO bricks before testing their design against the gentle flow of water in a 10 metre river.
There is plenty for the whole family to enjoy together, such as Red Rush where they can ride together in a family-sized raft down a 312-foot-long curving track on an 11-foot in diameter half pipe. Other highlights include the Wave Pools, Joker Soaker water playground and an abundance of water slides.
LEGOLAND Water Park also features a designated area especially for toddlers with four small slides and interactive DUPLO® animals with water features at the DUPLO Splash Safari.
Siegfried Boerst, General Manager of LEGOLAND Dubai said: “Following our launch of LEGOLAND Dubai on 31 October, we are delighted to open the Middle East’s first Water Park specifically designed for families with children aged 2-12. We are committed to offering memorable experiences and we look forward to welcoming families from the region and across the globe to experience awesome days soaked with adventure and fun.”
