REVIEW: Halloween at Wild Wadi Dubai

REVIEW: Halloween at Wild Wadi Dubai

25 Oct 2014

A must-book day of spooktastic fun for the whole family

As one of Dubai's premium tourist attractions, Wild Wadi is undoubtedly a fun day out for the entire family. With the introduction of rides such as the Burj Surj and Tantrum Alley in 2011, followed by an all-new Jumeriah Sceirah in 2012, it has, despite being one of the older waterparks in UAE, managed to retain its status among newer contenders.

For its Halloween celebrations, a specially constructed 'Halloween Heights' feature has been constructed, in a corner of the park. The story behind the haunted house is that it is actually a demolished hotel, possessed by a supernatural being; Djinn. If the story alone is not enough to freak you out, wait until you get inside! As you make your way walking through the very dark and crooked house, you will feel an eerie presence wherever you turn and you'll be screaming throughout as you try your best to get out as soon as possible. It ghoulishly good fun!

On a lighter note, and if you have children like me, the trick or treat offer is sure to go down a storm and is a nice little added touch for little ones. After grabbing a bucket and a map to guide you to several special Halloween stations throughout the park, children pick up free candies and sweets to take home, in between adventuring on the rides. This is Halloween fun at its best and receives a very rare (from me) 10 out of 10 for being the ultimate destination for fun, frolicks, thrills and spills!
