Richmond, Canada (April 16, 2012) — Canada’s WhiteWater West is proud to have been commissioned to supply and manufacture 12 of 14 complexes for the highly anticipated Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi. Boasting over 15 hectares adjacent to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi on Yas Island, UAE, this waterpark is set to become one of the largest and most popular waterparks in the Middle East.
Currently under construction, Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi will feature the world’s first RattlerTM MEGAtubeTM waterslide. Featuring “rattles” which change shape in alignment with the different lengths of cylinders, the RattlerTM shakes riders up with a series of twists, turns and oscillations!
Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi will also deliver another world’s first with SplashQuest™, a live action video game adventure that brings waterpark technology to the next level using the patented waterproof AquaGlove™ or SplashBand™. Players activate dozens of fun water effects to score points while following clues to complete challenges as they actively explore the quest spread all over the waterpark.
Elaborate theming on many of the attractions, including two AquaPlayTM multi-level interactive play structures, will support Yas Waterworld’s celebration of Emirati culture, heritage and infrastructure. From hypnotizing snakes to lost pearls, WhiteWater’s customized attractions will be sure to capture attention and bring the adventures of the waterpark’s fictitious character, Dana, to life.
WhiteWater attractions being installed at Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi include:
- FlowBarrelTM Ten Double
