Dubai is renowned for being home to some great waterparks, including Wild Wadi at Jumeirah Beach and Aquaventure at Atlantis, The Palm. Some new waterparks are set to open in Dubai in 2021.

Jungle Bay

One of the new waterparks set to launch this year is known as Jungle Bay. The attraction site is due to open in early 2021 on Mina Seyahi next door to Meridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina. The family-friendly waterpark will feature huge slides, a 6-metre wave pool and a specially-designed AquaPlay area for children of all ages.

Atlantis, The Palm and Atlantis, The Royal

The Royal, the new sister hotel of the Atlantis, The Palm hotel, is set to open in 2021. The well-known Aquaventure Waterpark at the site is undergoing a huge upgrade and expansion this year, which will make it one of the world’s biggest waterparks. At the heart of the upgrade is Trident Tower, a 34-metre tower that features 12 new slides. Among the new slides will be the ProSlide MammothBLAST, a 449-metre, family-friendly water coaster.

Legoland Waterpark

Legoland Waterpark at Dubai Parks and Resort was closed in 2020 due to the pandemic. It is hoped that the much-loved waterpark will reopen in 2021.
