Yas Island

For the adventure seekers, Yas Island holds everything wet, wild and wonderful and is sure to thrill your senses. The entertainment destination is a 30-minute drive from Abu Dhabi and is home to world-class attractions, the Yas Marina Circuit (the state-of-the-art motor sports race track, which hosts the Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix) and the stunning Yas Hotel, which sits atop both land and ocean with innovative design and spectacular craftsmanship. Currently the island, which is already home to Ferrari World, the world’s largest indoor theme park for the auto-loving motoring enthusiast, is about to take its entertainment capacity to the next level with the development of Yas Waterworld. This gigantic development will thrill guests with speed slides, the world’s largest surf-friendly sheet wave and the Dawwama, the world’s primary and longest hydro magnetic powered tornado. As well as these incredible attractions, Yas Waterworld also houses the Falcon’s Falaj, the Middle East’s longest waterslide and Bandit Bomber, the largest suspended roller-coaster with on-board water and laser effects.
