The UAE's first mega waterpark, Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi, experienced a blockbuster second year in 2014.

According to Farah Leisure Parks Management, operator of Yas Waterworld, more than three million rides were tracked on four of the facility's leading attractions – Dawwama, Liwa Loop, Bandit Bomber and Slithers Slides – during the year.

The second year also saw the waterpark scoop an array of industry awards, welcome VIP guests from across the world and host the World Flowboarding Championships, with Team UAE securing the international world title.

"Throughout its second year of operations, the park has continued to exceed all of our expectations," said Tim Mow, general manager at Yas Waterworld.

"We have witnessed incredible visitor numbers, as well as an increasingly positive response from local, regional and international visitors."

Looking ahead to 2015, the 150,000sq.m park is planning a range of new promotions, including its '100 Family Days' campaign and a light festival.
