Anchored by a magnificent 40 metre tower, the complex includes a number of world’s firsts including two AquaTubes which fly through the world’s largest 9m (30ft) diameter waterslide, and the Anaconda, offering a spectacular waterslide within a waterslide experience, known as the flume-thru-flume technology. Additionally, the world’s first zipline integrated into a waterslide tower delivers a new level of exhilaration as riders fly through on two-lane, two-way zip lines spanning three towers.  Adding to the excitement with more firsts to the Middle East, a Family Boomerango and two dueling AquaLoopsoffer adventure seekers challenges and thrills as they test the limits of their courage.
