The attractions keep on coming to the La Mer neighbourhood, Dubai’s newest waterfront area on the beach near Jumeirah 2. The Laguna Waterpark, which took two-and-a-half years to build, is slated to open in La Mer Central early next month.

The park is comprised of four distinct zones: a surf zone, an area to lounge and relax, a splash area for kids and the slides area. The waterpark’s five main attractions are: a surf club called the WaveOz 180 FloRider; a water slide tower complex that includes five different water slides, all of which are for those measuring 1.2m in height and above; a SplashPad for children ages four and below; an Aqua Play area for kids ages five and up, which includes a Tipping Bucket that uses between 3,000 to 3,800 litres of water per splash; and finally, a lazy river that is 200 metres in length.

The five slides are the Manta family raft ride, the Constrictor, the Loop, the Aquadrop Freefall and the Mad Racer.
