Yas Waterworld's Falcon's Falaj adventure ride is the longest water coaster in the Middle East at 350
meters (1,150 feet). It is a ProSlide HydroMAGNETIC (HM) MAMMOTHTM; a ride that marries the exhilaration of a roller coaster with the
excitement of a water ride. This patented HM technology is only
available from ProSlide and powers a longer, steeper, faster ride and a
smooth water coaster experience. This game-changing water ride
technology took home every major industry award in 2012, including
IAAPA's Impact Award, given to the top innovation in the entire
amusement park & attractions industry.
Dawwama's adrenaline rush is the ProSlide HydroMAGNETIC TORNADOTM, the first of its kind in the world! The HM TORNADO delivers an
unparalleled ride experience by combining the fast, steep uphills and
downhills of the HydroMAGNETIC MAMMOTH water coaster with the
award-winning TORNADOTM . Riders are dropped at an extreme 100% grade into the 18-meter
(60-foot) funnel. They experience the longest zero gravitational
forces as the rafts sweep up the TORNADO wall until they are
perpendicular to the ground, then across and along its equator line.
After a series of exciting oscillations through the funnel, the rafts
finally descend into the landing pool below.
Spread over 15 hectares (37 acres), Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi is the
largest waterpark in the United Arab Emirate capital. The park's theme
follows the adventures of a young Emirati girl in search of a legendary
pearl that brought prosperity to her village. More information here: http://www.yaswaterworld.com/en/section/water-park/attractions.
