Saraya Aqaba Waterpark, the largest waterpark in the Jordan, has opened its doors to public. Located in the heart of Jordan’s only coastal city Aqaba, the waterpark offers guests the ultimate aquatic adventure with over 25 rides, slides and experiences in addition to family-friendly eateries and shopping outlets.
Situated within the stunning Saraya Al Aqaba Residential City, the waterpark spans an area of 28,500 sq m. A uniquely themed waterpark, guests can enjoy a bevy of memorable experiences courtesy of rides and attractions inspired by Jordan’s most iconic landmarks including Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea, Jerash and many more.
Some of the popular attractions include the Pella Plunge – a slide that defies gravity from the highest point in the waterpark; Dead Sea Drop – a near vertical plunge that plummets 40 ft downwards as one of the tallest and steepest slides in the country and Syagha Serpent – a slide through an abyss of darkness filled with twists, turns and spins among others.
For younger children, an aquatic playground designed exclusively for little ones will offer them slides, interactive activities, waterfalls, rotating jets and a giant tipping bucket among others.
