In the on-going battle to achieve Guinness World Record status for everything on Earth, Dubai, it seems, has once again managed to out-do its competition… and kids young and old will be delighted with this one.

According to an official tweet by the Dubai Media Office earlier today, a new, giant inflatable waterpark will be installed at JBR.

Spanning 77m long by 33m wide, it will officially become the largest in the world. Best of all, the blue and purple-coloured park will be shaped like the Dubai tourism logo.

Dubai Inflatable park

Part-bouncy castle, part-slip and slide, inflatable waterparks are not new to Dubai’s shores – or neighbourhoods.

In 2014, AquaFun opened in JLT but, alas, was short-lived.


Then there’s the brilliant WIBIT, managed by Arabian Water Parks, which is also located along JBR, that’s been entertaining beachgoers for over two years.

Floating just off the beach this JBR favourite comprised trampolines, giant climbing walls, several slides, a running wall, a rope swing and countless other obstacles. Since the new inflatable park’s location is in the exact spot of the existing waterpark, we’re guessing this will be an exciting upgrade. One thing’s for certain – Dubai just got a lot more fun.
