Aqua Fun is a UAE company with the Middle East’s first and biggest inflatable park. It has the world’s longest and highest inflatable water slides. AquaFun was founded by the CEO, Ahmed Ben Chaibah, a local Emirati who started the venture a few years ago. Emirati entrepreneur Ahmad Bin Chaibah, the park’s owner wanted to showcase his passion for his city by setting a world record with his creation. The waterpark’s design is inspired by Dubai’s official logo, “as a tribute to the city’s creativity, innovation and dedication to its people”.
Everyone can join the fun with the World’s largest out-door water park in Dubai. The team promises a lot of fun, laughter, pleasure and a memorable experience. The park is located at The Beach, opposite Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR). Chaibah said the waterpark will continue to stay at this venue for the next three years, although he did not disclose his plans for the park beyond that period. “This is the best iconic place to put the Dubai logo. Another year and a half the backdrop will be the Bluewaters project,” says Chaibah, referring to the man-made mixed use island located off the coast of Jumeirah Beach Residence. “So it will be the best backdrop — with JBR, The Beach, and the Bluewaters Project.”
Since its opening, Chaibah says the aqua park has received an overwhelming response. The waterpark measures 2,700 square metres — 77 metres wide and 35 metres in depth. With 74 games, one can climb, jump and enjoy. Aqua Fun has capacity for 350 people per hour, and can go up to 500 people. The team has limited it to 350 people per hour to make sure it’s safe. There are a lot many games for people with different fitness levels. Visitors can have team-building activities, corporate events, birthdays, school trips or just friends or family. This water park is for everybody, from five-years-old to adults. It is said that an hour on the park can burn around 800 calories, he says. All the participants have to sign a waiver and wear a life jacket. The organisers have eight lifeguards on the site at any point of time — they are all professionals and very well trained. Proper safety procedures are followed. One has to wear something comfortable; swimwear preferably because everyone has to wear a life jacket — for their own safety.
