Mirdif City Centre gets indoor water park
Dubai, March 16, 2010
Aqua Play, a one-of-a-kind indoor attraction which combines rides and games using water-based activities, has opened at Mirdif City Centre in Dubai.
This unique 2,200 sqm water-based indoor attraction - designed and developed by Majid Al Futtaim Leisure - was conceived to offer mall-based entertainment and educational facilities for the whole family and to push the boundaries of leisure activities within a retail environment.
Aqua Play is aimed at children from the ages of two to eight and features an array of interactive games and rides, using running and still water. It incorporates the marine themes of sandy beaches and palm trees and its own unique cast of characters called the 'Aquapals,' skippered by Captain Splash.
But visitors don’t need to get wet from head to toe as Aqua Play is designed for fun in water no deeper than an arms length. An offshore sailing feel is provided courtesy of ropes and rigging and a fresh cool blue and sandy beige colour scheme ensures a nautical look and feel.
“The facilities enable youngsters to experience the dynamics of water and interact with it in a safe and family-friendly environment. Bringing the element of water into play is unique to mall based leisure facilities,” said Craig Hart, vice president of Majid Al Futtaim Leisure.
Alongside educational fun there is also a chance for children to catch a ride on a flume canoe or a tug boat swing ship. Alternatively they can spend time knocking into each other in one of the fantastic bumper boats.-TradeArabia News Service
