For the first time ever, Yas Waterworld will bring the award-winning story inspired by the UAE’s pearl diving past to life. Guests will watch the story of the “Legend of the Lost Pearl” be revealed before their eyes in an immersive experience.

The 5D attraction will transport guests through the sands of Abu Dhabi as they follow character Dana’s quest to recover her village’s rightful beacon of prosperity, the Mother Pearl.

Keeping true to the waterpark experience, special effects will include spraying water, water explosions, waterfalls, rain, neck blasts, water guns and fountains. RGB lighted bubbles in the theater’s walls and ceiling will be joined by ground fog, wind effects, leg ticklers and three degrees of motion. To fully submerge guests in the experience, over a foot of water will flood the theater, as seat vibrations rattle through the audience.

“We are happy to reveal Yas Waterworld’s newest experience, Cinesplash. This is undoubtedly one of the most exciting new additions to our lineup of experiences and we are very proud to be the first waterpark to introduce this attraction to our guests in the region,” said Bianca Sammut, general manager of Yas Waterworld. “We look forward to celebrating the legacy of our home through this dynamic experience.”
