Camp Inside A Waterpark For The First Time Ever In The UAE

Kids or adults, water theme parks are always fun, isn’t it? And in case you dreamed about spending a night inside a waterpark, here’s your chance. Laguna waterpark will make your dreams come true! For the first time ever, La Mer’s buzzing waterpark has launched ‘The Camp’ – a super cool overnight camping experience inside a theme park. Who’s up for the fun?

What’s It?

Laguna waterpark has always been a favorite among adventure enthusiasts and thrill seekers. However, now there’s one more reason to head to the park- but this time with your tents and camping equipment packed up. Laguna waterpark has launched a cool, overnight camping experience- ‘The Camp’ that will let you pitch a tent and stay in the park’s cool ambiance.

Scheduled every Thursday and Friday, the overnight camp starts off at 5:00 pm. Thrill seekers can hit the slides, ride down the WaveOZ 180 FlowRider or tuck into a host of dining options. Post this, you can get busy with a whole lot of fun activities- play board games, watch a family-friendly film, or simply peace out in front of the campfire.

In the morning, you will be handed over fresh eggs, tomatoes, onions, with fresh Arabic bread, labneh and cheese, so you can cook at live cooking stations. The checkout timing is at 10:00 am, but you cold stay back and choose to enjoy the unlimited access to the park, including unlimited food and beverages. As for the prices, a tent that can accommodate two people will cost you AED 700 while a tent for four will cost you AED 1,200.

The new experience will officially be open from 20 and 21 February. However, bookings are open right now.
