Yas Island water park by year-end

The Dh600 million water park will boast 43 rides

Residents of the UAE will have a long wait this summer as the highly anticipated Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi will open its doors only in the fourth quarter of 2012.
The estimated Dh606 million water park, which is a part of Abu Dhabi’s real estate development and management company Aldar, will be introduced at the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai, which opens on Monday. 
Yas Waterworld will boast 43 rides, slides and attractions that follow the adventures of the waterpark’s main character Dana, a young Emirati girl in search of a legendary pearl which brought prosperity to the people of her village.
Also new for ATM 2012 is the agreement between Aldar and Viceroy Hotel Group for the management of what is now Yas Viceroy Hotel.
The hotel, the group’s first hotel outside North America, has welcomed high-level government meetings, awards ceremonies and corporate conferences.
Meanwhile, Yas Mall, a super regional mall, is set for completion in the third quarter of 2013.
Mohamed Al Mubarak, Deputy CEO, Aldar Properties, said: “The introduction of the luxury hotel brand Viceroy to the Middle East, the recognition that continues to be given to Yas Links from the global golfing community, the growing list of superstars to perform here, it all adds up to another exciting and successful year in the life of Yas Island.’
He added: “We are particularly excited about the newest member of the Yas Island family. Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi will provide an important addition to the attractions  on offer.”
