Dubai opens super-sized floating water park

Dubai has launched the world's largest floating water park with slides, tunnels and obstacle courses a few hundred meters from its shore.

The park, standing at 2,700 square meters, has the capacity to hold up to 500 people and is shaped in the new official logo of the city of Dubai.

For visitors, the park provides an outlet for both adults and children to splash and climb on a jungle gym style floating park and get a work-out in the process.

The floating water park joins a long list of record breaking and unique structures in Dubai.

The Emirate state is home to the tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa, an indoor ski slope at a local mall, the world's first 3D printed office building and floating sea homes complete with master bedrooms that have an underwater view of the coral reefs.
The floating water park opened earlier this month and caters to anyone over the age of eight years.

Wearing a lifejacket on the park is compulsory and the only other requirement is visitors must be able to swim.
