Wild Wadi Waterpark opens New Year with two new rides!
Tantrum Alley and Burj Surj join Wild Wadi’s list of thrilling attractions
Dubai, 11 January 2011: Wild Wadi Waterpark unveiled the latest additions to the park - ‘Tantrum Alley’ and ‘Burj Surj’ – to the public today, 11 January 2011, at 11am. Wild Wadi has been Dubai’s favourite family destination for the last eleven years and the new rides, which are a first for this region.
‘Tantrum Alley’ is a ride that incorporates two large sections of downhill waterslides and three exciting tornadoes. 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, and then a third, after which they splash out into the pool.
The equally adventurous ‘Burj Surj’ consists of two large sections of downhill waterslides and two looming ‘Bowls’. Guests are seated on a four-person tube, travelling downhill to the bowls, where they are hurtled into a spiralling spin and then dropped into the slide, ending with a screaming splash in the pool.
