best ride in the park by their guests. "We're very pleased that the
industry has recognized what our customers have told us since we
opened: that Dawwama, our ProSlide HM TORNADO, is the best water ride
in the world", says Mike Oswald, General Manager, Yas Waterworld Abu

three or more rides combined into one path."
