Admittedly it’s not a sport, but Yas Waterworld does promise adrenaline rushes. Best of the bunch is Liwa Loop, the only looping waterslide in the Middle East. Daredevils are locked into a capsule, and the floor just drops away, leaving you to hurtle straight down and around a giant loop that’s almost perpendicular to the ground. It’s all over in seconds, but your heart will be racing long afterwards. The park has great summer discounts as well, including four admissions for the price of three, so now is as good a time as any to get down there.
Tickets start from Dhs240 for adults and Dhs195 for children under 1.1m. Book online and receive four tickets for the price of three. www.yaswaterworld.com (02 414 2000).
