Make a splash with a 30m slip 'n slide in Abu Dhabi

The Splash Festival returns to Yas Marina


The summer is on its way and temperatures are heating up, leaving many of us desperately trying to stay cool.

So we were very excited to hear about a massive new water slide about to make a splash in Abu Dhabi.

The seventh Splash Festival is set to make a welcome return to Yas Marina and organisers are promising it will be even bigger and better than before.

And the star of the show is undoubtedly a 30-metre slip n’ slide, which is apparently the first of its kind in the UAE.

As well as that beast, there are a range of other inflatable water slides to enjoy.

Oversized inflatables dotted across the venue will include various themed slides, where kids can find Nemo or walk the inflatable plank with pirates.

Throughout the day kids can visit and interact with a mermaid and take photos with her.

And there’s even the chance to have a boat tour with Captain Tony, which promise to be a cool way to explore.

Visitors can evem take a culinary tour along the promenade and choose from a variety of favourite dining options offering delicious bites.

So why not head on down and dive in to a day full of wet and wild fun?

Dhs50 (adults over 21), Dhs30 (aged 5-21), free (kids under 5) Dhs25 (boat tours). 1pm-7pm, April 20-21. Yas Marina, Yas Island.
