Video: What’s On tries the Waterpark at The Beach


You know that big blue & pink waterpark opposite JBR? Well, it’s harder than it looks…

We’ve strapped ourselves to the top of a plane, drifted around in a race car, ziplined across the Dubai Fountain and bounced around giant trampoline parks. But the thing that broke us? The innocent-looking blue and pink waterpark at The Beach Opposite JBR.

‘It’s just a few bouncy walkways and slides,’ we thought as we merrily ran our way down the beach and toward the 77m long by 33m wide floating obstacle course, completely ignoring the owner’s warning that Crossfit athletes have struggled to complete it. And then this happened…

As you can see, we struggled to even get on the thing (not a good start), and while we had fun running along the course, as soon as we had to attempt any of the actual obstacles? Fail.

We lasted about 45 minutes, and managed to conquer about a third of the obstacles.

Have you fared better? Let us know in the comments below. Fancy yourself super fit? We dare you to complete it (just be careful of the barnacles on the underside of the floating course, we cut ourselves more than once on them)…
