Laguna Lifestyle


World-class beachfront development La Mer was designed by UAE developer Meraas Holdings to diversify the fabric of Dubai's offering for both visitors and residents. Park World takes a closer look at Laguna, the themed waterpark making waves in downtown Dubai


leisure and entertainment hub is called The Wharf, and also includes a Roxy Cinema amongst other activities. Visitors have the option to combine a trip to the waterpark experience with visits to La Mer’s beach, or its numerous cafes, restaurants, shops and other attractions. Designed to provide entertainment for families, chill-seekers and sports lovers alike, Laguna Waterpark is split into four distinct zones – Splash, Slide, Surf and Relax. It is themed with a relaxed ‘shanty town’ aesthetic created by creative design and theming specialist Scruffy Dog. “They best demonstrated an understanding of ‘design to budget,’” says head of operations Adam Duplooy, “whilst bringing a sense of fun and freshness to the park’s look and feel.” Meraas chose industry veterans Forrec to masterplan the project, and spoke with several specialist manufacturers before choosing WhiteWater West to provide waterslide attractions. “Particularly important to the decision process was the WaveOz180 FlowRider, which gave us something completely new for our region, and The Manta which is unique in the UAE but most importantly gave us a family raft ride.”

“It was the advice of Geoff Chutter of WhiteWater West to not only have in-line tube rides, but also to add a family raft ride to the ride tower,” adds Duplooy. “You sit facing your family and friends and enjoy their emotions.

Arguably the park’s star attraction, the WaveOz 180 is the only one of its kind in the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council), as well as being one of only three in the world. Nicknamed ‘The Ultimate Surf Machine’, the FlowRider offers guests a full 180-degree, competition-wave experience. It can be divided into multi-rider options, and features body boards as well as stand-up boards, making it adaptable for guests ranging from beginner through to adrenaline veteran. The WaveOz 180 is the largest and most powerful in the


region, and is fast becoming the go-to flow rider for pros and enthusiasts. It has seven jets and a water bed, making it a fluid wave as well as a soft landing, and can be opened the full 180-degree for stand-up and sit-down boarding. “We aim to foster the surf and flow riding community by introducing early morning flow sessions every Saturday and after-hours hire,” explains Duplooy.
