The Lost Paradise of Dilmun Water Park in Bahrain opened for its 2008 season at the end of March.
Visitors had the opportunity then to win a seasonal pass for 2008 entitling them to a full year use of the water park, the largest in the Middle East.
The park offers 14 rides and attractions including secret tunnels, water chutes, a relaxing spa pool, a wet play area for children, the Middle East’s only wave pool with a sandy beach, and a Paradise River for floating upon at leisure.
The park will be open from March to May from 10am to 5pm, six days a week, and close every Tuesday except during school and public holidays.
The Lost Paradise of Dilmun Water Park was developed by the Al Areen Holding Company at an investment of $50 million. It covers about 77,000 square metres, with a built up area of 45,000 square metres and about 20,000 square metres allocated for future expansion and car parking. The facility has also created 150 jobs.
This water park and The Banyan Tree Desert Spa & Resort are included in Al Areen’s first phase of developments. The overall development at Al Areen is built over two million square metres in the southern region of the Kingdom of Bahrain, close to the wildlife sanctuary, and is a $1.3 billion luxury, mixed use health, residential and family tourism development.
