Abu Dhabi waterpark unveils theme
Abu Dhabi, September 12, 2011
Waterpark on Yas Island, a leisure and lifestyle hub being developed by Aldar Properties in Abu Dhabi, has unveiled its unique Emirati theme for the project.
The Waterpark, which will be operated by Farah Leisure Parks Management, spreads across more than 15 hectares and will provide a full day’s entertainment with restaurants, shops and interactive games, in addition to the many rides, slides, & attractions.
The park is based on an original story developed exclusively for the Island’s latest attraction, said a senior official.
“The Waterpark on Yas Island will be one of the most advanced anywhere in the world, with many unique rides, which will excite every member of the family,” said Mike Oswald, Park Manager.
“The story told throughout the Waterpark remains true to Emirati traditions & heritage, while bringing the latest in design & innovation to the heart of Abu Dhabi’s thriving Yas Island,” he noted.
‘The Lost Pearl’ follows the adventures of a young Emirati girl in search for an exquisite pearl which brought prosperity to the pearl diving people of her village, Oswald stated.
The story will take guests through more than 40 exciting rides, slides, and attractions, including a unique pearl diving show demonstrating traditional Emirati heritage, he added.
Guests will follow Dana as she heads into the desert, over the mountains, across the dunes, and to an oasis meeting many friendly helpers along the way. Together they face many challenges, including a group of greedy bandits.
“Youngsters from the UAE and across the globe will love the immersive story we tell during their experience. The traditional Emirati theme will really bring the park to life,” Oswald remarked.
The Waterpark, which is currently under construction, is located adjacent to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi on Yas Island and is set to become an integral part of the island’s entertainment offering which includes the Yas Marina Circuit and the Yas Links Golf Course.
Set to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2012, the Waterpark on Yas Island will be one of the leading waterparks anywhere in the World.-TradeArabia News Service
