    "It was also played by children. Children can go in and don’t want to go. It has reached the goal. Except for the consumer price inside, it is not very friendly to the people. There is nothing wrong with it. After all, the local tyrants can also make sense. Try to be the best on Going there is definitely more expensive than And also yin and yang strange said that the software is not necessarily successful or something, inductive words, directly determined, went to several attractions are the same, don't ask, directly determined."

It brings the amazing animals and plants of the Amazon to the desert country for people to watch. It is a new miracle in Dubai. At the center of the botanical garden is a 25-meter-tall artificial kapok covered with greenery and parasitic vines that fill the five-story glass space. Although the tree is fake, there is a variety of vegetation and animals on it: colorful purple-blue macaws and bright toucans skim the air, porcupines and sloths take sleepy walks, and fish come from farms in Singapore , many trees come from Thailand and India. In such an artificial forest, the entire interior is carefully controlled at 70% humidity and a temperature of 25-28 degrees Celsius. A total of more than 3,000 species of animals and plants have been introduced from all over the world into this constant temperature chamber, along the trails surrounding the giant kapok. Walking down slowly, you can vividly experience the different ecology of each level of the rainforest.

    "Our visit to Wild Wadi recently was great. The kids enjoyed the water slides. The place looks a bit old and needs an update. We enjoyed the lazy river water slide. They have available several places to lounge while one is not playing in water. We got swindled at the reception to buy a prepaid all you can eat meal plan at 185 AED. Once you arrive inside you discover the food is terrible and there are more nicer food options you could have had. Finding a secure phone charging point is impossible."
    Dubai.Jumeirah Beach
    11km from downtown
    Highlights: Wild Wadi Waterpark is located on the Jumeirah Public Beach in front of the Burj Al Arab Hotel. It's a relatively popular theme park in the Middle East. You can experience the pretty exciting "vertical capsule" ride in the park, to fall at relatively high speed from the air. You can also experience surfing in the wave pool, or leisurely float for a circuit. The park theme is that of the warrior Sinbad's exciting adventures as told in the Arabian legends. It combines Arab-style water constructs, while some water facilities are interconnected so there is no need to leave the water while playing inside.

    "We had a tonne of fun at Motiongate. I highly recommend it. The rides are a lot of fun. My daughters had a wonderful experience. We did the Dragon roller coaster rides and the story telling rides for Shrek and Frankenstein Hotel. There are a lot of restaurants with food and drinks as well. I lost my wallet and they kept it for me , I am super grateful for that. My inner child was indeed awakened . Thanks to Motiongate for a very wonderful experience for the children. We will be back again soon.u"

    "Legoland and Lego Water Park can play together, children like it very much, but the water park is closed at six o'clock, you can go to the water park first and then go to Legoland. My baby is too young, his height is not up to standard, many projects can not play, but adults can play. In addition, you have to bring your own slippers and bath towels to the water park. Remember to buy more water, most of them are outdoors."
