Legoland Water Park
The UAE is host to 5 large waterparks, enough for any water-based adrenalin junkies. All parks are within 90 minutes drive from Dubai, with 3 of them within the city limits. But which is the best? Today we’ll look at the newest water park, Legoland Water Park.
Located in Dubai Parks and Resorts (near Al Maktoum airport on the way to Abu Dhabi), Legoland Water Park is aimed at families with children and therefore lacks the high speed, high frilled rides of the other water parks in Dubai. That said, it’s still full of fun.
Before making the fairly lengthy drive to Legoland Water Park, we advise you check the height restrictions online to see how many rides your children can go on. Even though there are 20 slides to choose from, most require children to be over 102cm or 107cm to ride, although adults can accompany smaller children on some of the rides.
Once parked up, you hop on a bus for a short journey to the Riverland, which you walk through to get to Legoland Waterpark.
Try and get a nice spot next to the wave pool and then head off to try out the rides. The ‘Twist N Spin’ (for over 107cm) is a cool slide that can be ridden on using a single or double tube, so partner up and shoot on down.
Next, the ‘Wave Rider’ and ‘Tidal Tube’ (for over 102cm) are quicker slides without tubes designed for one person.
The ‘LEGO Slide Racers’ are great fun, especially if you are in a group. With 6 slides in a row, you race on mats to the bottom.
‘Red Rush’ (for over 107cm) is a slide with a raft big enough for the whole family.
‘Splash Out’ (for over 102cm) is a slide with a 60-foot drop into the water below.
The ‘Twin Chasers’ are also great fun for 2 people. Twin tubes of equal length allow races from top to bottom.
The Joker Soaker is a water-filled playground where smaller children over 91cm can ride the slides on the lower level and older kids can ride faster slides on the upper level if over 102cm.
Duplo Splash Safari is aimed at tots along with the Duplo Wave Pool which is like a splash park.
There is also the Build-a-Raft lazy river which is very popular with families. Collecting blocks as you swim, and add them to your raft whilst you float along.
So it’s great fun for families, but what about price? Entry per person will set you back 235AED, although you can get a combined ticket with the Legoland park for only 50AED more. If you’re a resident, both tickets are 70dhs cheaper. But there are other costs too. The general admission car park is 50 AED, but there is also a VIP covered parking option for 100 AED, and 150 AED for valet parking. Both of these more expensive options are closer to the park and do not require a bus journey. One advantage of the annual pass is that general parking was free. If you want to rent a locker, that will also set you back 45 AED.
