When La Mer’s waterpark launched last year, it was met with raving reviews, thanks to its series of one of a kind attractions. The beach-front of the waterpark coupled with infinity pool and Middle East’s first 180-degree surf park, was sure to make the 2018 waterpark an ultimate summer destination. It did, but it became more. Fast forward to today, after scorching summer simmered down, Laguna Waterpark is the “it” destination of all seasons. Here are the reasons why.
Why Laguna Park is the “it” destination this season?
Before winter arrives, Laguna Waterpark has geared to turn the heat with four weekends of festivities all lined up. The African-Caribbean festival, as the event is called, will run through September and October, starting September 20 and continuing on October 4, 11 and 18. You get to experience the vibrant culture of the Caribbean and take part in African-Caribbean themed activities.
Licensed rooftop bar
Laguna Waterpark has recently launched its licensed rooftop bar in the park. The festival featuring afterparties will take place on this stellar bar with a stunning view of the Arabian Gulf. At the venue, you can expect to see a line up of DJ’s and musicians, making you hit the dancefloor till midnight.
Free Afro Fit dance class
If you are a dance enthusiast and would love to explore more of the art, then join an exclusive Afro Fit dance class that is set to take place in the park. As part of the Caribbean Festival, Dubai-based fitness trainer Gbemi Giwa will host the Afro Fit workout session at 7 pm. The 35-minute class is free of cost but can make room for only 30 people, so the selection is on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Reduced entry fee
You may think that with a festival as grand as this, the entry fee must be explosive. On the contrary, the festival witnesses a reduced-fee entry all throughout the day. Instead of the usual Dhs 125, the door fee is only Dhs 99, from 10 am till 8 pm.

Where else can you learn to surf on a machine? Laguna’s key attraction, the WaveOZ 180 FlowRider, is one of the only three surf machines in the world. Ideal for beginners and challenging for professionals, the 180-degree surfing machine is an experience you cannot miss. The FlowRider spans 187-feet wall-to-wall, the WaveOz 180 is a prime spot for carving the waves and can accommodate 3 to 4 surfers simultaneously.
Ten thrilling rides
There’s no stopping the thrill at this waterpark with ten crazy rides for you and your family. The Loop is one of the favorites for adventurous junkies and so is the Constrictor, that comes with an optical illusion in the dark. Free Fall will leave your heart racing. Mad Racer is another ride for the competitive souls, where you duel side-by-side and overcome surprising twists and turns.
For a fun day out with family, the reason you can consider Laguna Park is mainly because it has something for everyone in the family; from toddlers to senior citizens. Manta is one such ride, in fact, it is the region’s first family rift ride that makes you experience zero-gravity for a few seconds before you splash down the pool. However, if the thrill is not your family members’ thing then you can bask in the cozy cabanas overlooking the Arabian Gulf or try Lazy River to enjoy the serenity.
Children will love it
Thanks to a dedicated zone for children, Aqua Play is separate waterpark for young adventurers. The section has its own waterslides, rides and soaker buckets. Aqua Play is such a zone that even parents tend to enjoy it. But if not, then leaving the kids unattended here is not an issue since the place is guarded by lifeguards.
Trip to Laguna Waterpark doubles up as a trip to the beach
Perched on the La Mer stretch, the beachfront is charming and a walk can lead you to hours of wondering. North Beach La Mer is accessible from the waterpark, so before you end your day at Laguna, you can catch a sunset from the beach.
