Unveiling Yas Waterworld, the latest attraction to draw tourists to fun-filled Abu Dhabi holidays

Tempting potential tourists with a brand new attraction that still in the middle phases of construction, tourism officials and project developers are proud to introduce Abu Dhabi's latest and newest water park, an amazing new water world for water lovers and families seeking fun holidays in Abu Dhabi.

Unveiling Yas Waterworld, the latest attraction to draw tourists to fun-filled Abu Dhabi holidays

Not satisfied with already being home to the world’s one and only Ferrari-themed adventure park complete with a F1 circuit that annually hosts the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix, Abu Dhabi is currently going full steam ahead with the construction of a brand new theme park development – an amazing new water park rising like a giant oasis amidst the arid desert.

It seems that the leisure bosses currently developing Yas Island – a unique man-made artificial island resort created with the idea of offering a unique range of experiences and attractions while also offering an insight into Abu Dhabi’s culture – are not content with all that Abu Dhabi holidays have to offer to the discerning traveller in search of luxury and recreation.

With some pictures of the new Yas Waterworld water park being released to show the project’s fast progress and current phase of construction, tourism officials from the island are eager to start enticing tourists with their latest attraction by showcasing all that it will have to offer and already promising “rides that have never been experienced before”.

Scheduled to open just before the year ends with a tentative date for around late 2012, the new theme water park being built on Yas Island comprises over 15 hectares and promises endless fun for active family holidays in Abu Dhabi with not only an incredible range of water attractions but also an array of shops, restaurants and interactive games.

In direct competition with their neighbour emirate of Dubai, already attracting millions of travellers thanks to its unique attractions and sky-scraping wonders, Abu Dhabi is stepping up to the game by endeavouring to offer a more complete holiday experience for travellers by catering to all kinds of tourists from every age group.

The new attraction will rival those currently on offer at The Palm Dubai, a man-made island resort and hotel complete with its own water park and dolphinarium, putting Abu Dhabi holidays on Yas Island in direct competition with Dubai holidays at The Palm.

To compete with the existing Dubai attraction, the developers and planners at the new Yas Waterworld have decided to go bigger and better by promising to deliver an attraction that will become “one of the leading water parks in the world”.

Those flocking down to Abu Dhabi for the unique water experience will get to slide down gigantic snake-shaped water slides and try out the Bandit Bomber and Falcon’s Falaj, promising thrill seekers four amazing rides that are unlike anything else.

If all this wasn’t enough, they claim to have also created the world's first hydromagnetic-powered tornado.

But this is certainly not the first time the UAE or Abu Dhabi, more specifically in this case, have ploughed money into attracting visitors.

Billions were invested in the 861,000 square foot park on Yas Island which expects to see 10,000 visitors a day while Abu Dhabi has another project in the pipeline at present and is currently spending $27 billion in developing a unique art and culture project in Saadiyat Island, planned to house spin-offs of the Louvre museum in Paris and New York's Guggenheim.
