Richmond, BC, Canada — Canada’s WhiteWater West is proud to be the supplier and manufacturer of 12 of 14 complexes for the highly acclaimed Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi. Boasting over 15 hectares, the waterpark opened to the public four days ahead of schedule, on January 20, 2013 and is already proving to be one of the most popular waterparks in the Middle East. Winner of the World Waterpark Association’s (WWA), “Leading Edge Award” in 2012, Yas Waterworld was built with an investment of $245m and is projected to rake in 700,000 visitors in 2013.
“Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi is a milestone in the leisure sector in the Middle East, and indeed in the world. Our 43 rides, slides and attractions feature five one-of-a-kind rides that have never been seen in any other water park in the world,” said Mike Oswald, Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi, General Manager.
“Another novel feature of the park is that it is built around a central theme – that of the ‘Legend of the Lost Pearl’, which pays homage to the heritage and history of the United Arab Emirates. We have a collection of attractions that have never been seen before in the region. Our unique combination of rides, innovative themes and location on Yas Island, which is already one of the global hotspots for leisure and entertainment, is an unparalleled draw for visitors,” Oswald added.
“WhiteWater collaborated closely with Yas Waterworld to develop and custom theme unique and innovative signature attractions”, said Geoff Chutter, WhiteWater’s CEO. “We are thrilled with the results and are extremely proud to showcase our attractions at this groundbreaking waterpark, including several world’s firsts: the FamilyRattlerTM waterslide, the largest FlowBarrel TM Ten Double, and SplashQuest™, an interactive video game adventure”.
