Wild Wadi to add two new rides

11 December 2008

Jumeirah Group, a member of Dubai Holding, is adding two new rides as part of an expansion to Wild Wadi Water Park in Dubai. The first ride to be added to the nine-year old park is called 'Tantrum Alley', which will incorporate two large sections of downhill waterslides and two tornados. Guests seated on a four person tube will travel downhill to enter the first tornado where they slide back and forth several times, then circle around and around in the eye of the storm before exiting and hitting the second tornado, after which they splash out into the pool. The second ride, known as 'Behemoth Bowl' consists of two sections of downhill waterslides and a 'bowl'. Guests are seated on a four person tube, travelling downhill to the bowl, where they are hurtled into a spiralling spin and then dropped into the slide, ending with a splash in the pool. In order to prepare the park for these slides, Wild Wadi will be closed from January 22nd until February 11th, 2009, before re-opening on February 12th. The two new rides are to be completed in 2009.
