A great water park in Dubai is AquaFun. The special thing there is that it is the largest inflatable water park in the world. A visit there is therefore recommended and this attraction is something special.
Water Park AquaFun
Of course, there are many great water parks in the emirate that you can visit, such as the Aquaventure from the Atlantis Hotel. But there is a water park in Dubai that is practically directly on the water and thus it is again unique in the city. That means there is only this one and so you should take a look at it. In any case, this one is a lot of fun.
AquaFun is, of course, a great attraction, especially for the children, and they will have a great time there. In our opinion, this has been done great and it is a wonderful alternative to the water parks that have existed in the metropolis so far. Also very practical if you have booked a city hotel with a somewhat small pool. Then this one is perfect.
Now you are probably wondering how you can actually reach AquaFun very quickly. It is best to have booked a hotel nearby such as the Hilton Dubai Jumeirah. By the way, you can walk there from there and that’s very convenient. But even if you have chosen a hotel directly on The Walk, it is not very far from there.
But in principle, the water park is directly across from the promenade and promenade of The Beach. You will certainly have a look at the shops and restaurants there. So you can combine this wonderfully with each other. There is also a large parking garage where you can park your rental car. It is not so easy to get to by public transport such as the Dubai Metro. You would then have to walk too far. An alternative would be to use the taxi here.
A great water park in Dubai
The water park is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to sunset. We recommend that you visit it during the week. At the weekend in Dubai, of course, there are always many more visitors than you can imagine. If you want more peace and quiet then a visit during the week is always recommended. You should also plan a few hours there.
To visit the AquaFun water park in Dubai you need a ticket. The best thing to do is to buy an All-Day Pass ticket and you can stay there all day if you want. A ticket costs 105 dirhams per person and there is no discount for the children. It is important to know that there is a minimum age of six years. If you want to save time then you can buy the ticket online right away. So you don’t have to queue at the box office on site.

Everything is wonderfully organized there and you don’t need to bring anything with you. For safety, a life jacket is provided so that nothing happens there. Since you are there on the water, you can fall into it once. But there are also lifeguards everywhere who make sure nothing happens.
In any case, AquaFun is very large and is 130 meters long and 20 meters wide. That makes a total area of 2,700 square meters, making it the largest in the world. The special thing is certain that the modules are arranged in such a way that you can see the lettering “Dubai” from a bird’s eye view.
Of course, you will also get wet there when you visit the AquaFun. After the visit, you can treat yourself to a shower at The Beach, where there are changing rooms and showers. But of course, you have to go back to the mainland as you can imagine. The water park is of course on the water and there is no such thing.
Since the promenade, The Beach, is directly opposite, you can combine these wonderfully. That means, for example, that the parents visit the numerous shops and the children can visit AquaFun for a long time. So then of course both have fun what you can imagine. If you stay in a hotel nearby this is always an advantage. By the way, at The Beach, you can still buy swimming trunks or bathing suits if you forgot them at the hotel.
As already mentioned, it is very convenient if you stay in the area. The closest hotel would be, for example, the Hilton Dubai Jumeirah and from there it is only 350 meters to the water park. This is also a popular beach hotel in Dubai where families with children like to stay. But there are other hotels with good locations where you don’t have to go far.
Visiting AquaFun is definitely a lot of fun, especially for the children. You can easily spend a few hours there without getting bored. If you are looking for a great destination in the emirate of Dubai then you have come to the right place. Of course very useful if you booked a city hotel with a small pool on the roof. At this water park, you are on the most beautiful beach in all of Dubai and that is awesome.
