Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi attracts hundreds of visitors daily. You can skip through various inconveniences and spend more time exploring and having fun in the waterpark by getting your tickets in advance.
Buying your tickets on Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi’s website will only take you a few minutes. Doing so also gives you the chance to choose the best day for your family getaway.

Another huge perk of buying your tickets beforehand is that you and your family can skip the long lines at the ticket counters and head straight to the rides and slides you want to go on first.
- Explore the waterpark virtually beforehand.
While purchasing your tickets or after it, spend a few minutes going over Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi’s website to get an idea of the different slides, rides, and attractions, their locations, and which age groups they cater to.
Also, check the height restrictions for the attractions beforehand since even if your children are of the required age, they may still be too small for some.
It is also important to know which attractions are off-limits for younger kids so you can just skip them.
You can then create a list of attractions where you and your family can go and the ones that only the older teens and adults can enjoy.
This simple tip will help you and your group make the most of your visit and ensure everyone can go on all the slides and rides they are allowed at the waterpark.
Also, find out how many restaurants and food stalls are inside the waterpark if you can rent a cabana or locker or both, and the other amenities you and your family can have access to. Include them when creating your itinerary for the waterpark.
- Know what to pack.
Making sure everyone brings everything they need is also crucial for having a fun and safe family day at a waterpark.
Below are the essentials everyone should bring for the waterpark getaway:
- Appropriate swimwear
- Cover-ups or kaftans (for women)
- Flip-flops or aqua shoes
- Beach hats
- Extra clothes
As the parent, don’t forget to bring some bandages, baby wipes, and other toiletries. Also, pack some extra plastic bags where you can place all the wet clothes.
Make sure you pack some of your toddlers’ or preschoolers’ favorite snacks, juice boxes, and toys as well. Additionally, help them pack their bag for the waterpark visit or put their essentials in your bag.
- Plan on arriving early at the waterpark.
Know what time Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi opens and plan on arriving there several minutes before. Doing so can help you avoid the long queues at the entrance gate.
Since you can enter the waterpark early, you and your family can maximize your stay in the waterpark. This means everyone can go on more slides, rides, spend more time at different pools, and explore the area longer.
While waiting for the waterpark to open, remind your group of your personal instructions or any park rules they have to follow.
To ensure you and your family get to the waterpark early, have everyone pack their bags the night before your visit.
Also, have everyone go to bed early and set their alarm clocks so that they won’t have difficulty waking up at the designated time.
- Set snack and lunch breaks and the time for leaving the park.
If you have teens who would prefer to explore the waterpark by themselves or with the other adults in your group, ensure they know what time and where they should meet you for snack breaks and lunch.
If you plan to spend some time together at a pool or attraction where everyone can go, remind your older kids and other adults about this as well so that they won’t forget about it.
Make sure your older kids wear their waterproof watches if they have them so that they can keep track of time.
Also, make sure your older kids and other companions know the exact time you have to leave the waterpark and where you are supposed to meet.
