How much do the entry tickets cost?
There are several different priced tickets for different packages. The prices shown on the website claim to give you the best deal but many people have claimed they get a better deal buying at the attraction. The website is not easy to navigate your way through either. Tickets cost AED 364 through the website with no quote for child prices and up to AED 420 during peak season when buying at the ticket office. Outside of peak season tickets purchased at the ticket office cost AED 289 for those over 1.2 metres and AED 235 for those 1.1-1.2m in height.
I could not find adult and child tickets only for sizing of people, what does this mean?
The ticketing system rates everyone over 1.2 metres in height as an adult, no matter what their age. This gives access to all the rides. Anyone between 1.1 metres and 1.2 metres in height is on the next rating system and there are restrictions on some of the more challenging rides. On the website it states anyone aged 3 and younger has free entry, in reality it is anyone smaller than 1.1 metres in height.
Is it best to buy tickets online before your arrival in Dubai or once you are in the resort?
The management of the water park state that you should buy your tickets in advance as you can get better deals online than you will get buying your tickets on the day. Reviews written by people that have visited the water park overwhelmingly say to buy them at the gate and that the queues are not too long at any time of day.
Why are there height and weight restrictions on each ride and how are these restrictions explained?
Each attraction has a list of its standard rules for safety reasons. These are listed at the entrance to each ride. If the ride operator feels an individual is too short or not the correct weight they have the right to check before allowing them on the ride including scales for weighing.
