The heat in Dubai is easy to handle when your at a waterpark and in a bikini, but we have never seen the likes of such a waterpark as Wild Wadi. Almost like a Wild Wild West kind of feel with big brown rocks and rustic wood everywhere it really isn’t a place just for kids as the big kids love it too.
With waterslides that push you up in tubes with jets and then let you go screaming down the other side or through a dark tunnel only to be catapulted up yet again by the strong jets. (Watch out though girls – be prepared for MAJOR wedgies if you’re facing the wrong way).
It was really just a fun day of either hanging out on the upwards jet slides, the big toilet like flushing slides that take hundreds of steps upwards to get to, hanging out in the massive wave pool or if you want to try your hand (body) at body surfing you can try out the manmade wave that you bodysurf on a small body board while the water pressure pushes you up a big wave.
I think I actually spent most of my day watching Merv firstly wipe out really quickly (which was really funny) to have enough go’s that he eventually got the hang of it and did quite a good job. (I refused to have a go as I wanted to keep my bikini on – the pressure would have not only wiped me out but wiped my bikini off).
The park closed about 7pm so we left tired and tanned and went back to the hotel to shower and change to go out that night for drinks as it was our last night in Dubai.
As committed as we were, we left at 9:30pm all dressed up looking quite spiffy I might add, we caught a taxi to The Address which is a hotel near the Burj Khalifa, managed two drinks each, some sushi for our rumbling bellies and called it a night at 11:30pm. Both of us struggling to keep our eyes open on the ride home to bed and our last day in Dubai.
