Standing as a unique contrast to the arid landscapes in and around the United Arab Emirates, Ice Land Water Park has opened in Ras Al Khaimah with much applause.

The polar-themed resort, designed by Polo Rak – a joint venture between India’s Polo Amusement Group, RAK Properties and RAK Investment Authority – can accommodate over 10,000 guests a day.

Housing more than 50 water attractions and waterslides, Ice Land Water Park showcases a number of landmark attractions including the world’s largest manmade waterfall and the largest ‘rain dance pool’ in the world.

The park is equipped with a full set of in-house utilities including four megawatt power generation, a water desalination plant capable of producing 525,000 gallons a day and water filtration systems to maintain four million gallons of pool water.

Balwant Singh, managing director of Polo RAK, said: "Ice Land Water Park will distinguish itself from other waterparks around the world through its unique ‘enduring guest experiences’ concept wherein we will offer guest experiences with segmental appeal to tap a wider range of age, lifestyle and culture groups. For instance, we have built Kids Cove as a dedicated place for toddlers."

Penguin Falls, located at the entrance of the park, is the world’s largest manmade waterfall that stands 120ft tall and 540ft wide with 100,000 gallons of water cascading down its contours every minute.

The interactive Penguin Bay area, meanwhile, is the largest rain dance pool in the world, measuring 30,000sq.ft and offering shaded discos, open discos, rain showers and a fully equipped live music stage.
