Abu Dhabi-based Miral Group has revealed its plans for a 16,900m² expansion of the Yas Waterworld water park on Yas Island in the UAE.
The construction, which is set to be completed in 2025, is expected to increase guest capacity at the park by 20%.
It will add 3.3km of slide structures alongside 18 new rides and attractions, which will bring the total number of experiences in the park to more than 60.
Miral CEO Mohamed Abdalla Al Zaabi said: “This expansion marks another addition to our world-class attractions and experiences on Yas Island and a testament to achieving our vision of positioning it as a top global destination for entertainment and leisure.
“We are proud to be contributing to the development of Abu Dhabi’s ecosystem and economic diversification, while further enhancing its global appeal as a tourism hub.”
Following expansion, the park will have what is claimed to be the tallest slide in the UAE and the first water park ride in the Gulf Cooperation Council to be integrated into a waterslide complex.
