Neon Nights: Yalla gets the lowdown on this New Family Adventure


Head to Yas Island this autumn for a whole lot of family fun… take a towel, because you’re going to get wet!

Autumn is here which means cooler temperatures but you can cool down even more at Yas Waterworld.

The new adventure, called Neon Nights, is taking place on 16, 23 and 30 October with extended play after dark until 10pm.

So, donning our masks, Team Yalla head over to try this unique after-dark family amusement and since we had such a pleasurable time, we felt compelled to share insider tips on how to better enjoy Yas Waterworld’s Neon Nights.

The park opens at 10am and, from morning to sun down, you’ll have plenty of time to soak up the fun.

As if that’s not enough, after sunset, you can see the waterpark come to life with neon lights, epic shows and unique water happenings – think colourful bright lights, glowing floaters on a neon river, and amazing rides that turn more exciting after dark!

You might have done all the rides by daytime but it’s a different wave of excitement after sunset. Trust us, it’s a must to try all the rides at night if you can.

With more than 40 rides, slides and attractions to choose from, plus extended play hours until 10pm, Yas Waterworld’s Neon Nights offer a whole new level of excitement for families – something you shouldn’t miss!

There’s a reason this place is rated the region’s leading waterpark. But before you head over there, heed our tips:

Bring your own towels if you want to avoid the unnecessary expense of buying or renting towels for the whole family, which can add up to a hefty sum.

Lockers are also charged and come in different sizes. You can rent one medium size locker priced at AED55 that would fit two or three regular sized bags.

Neon Nights, every Friday on 16, 23 & 30 October, 10am – 10pm. For more information or to get tickets, visit
