The Laguna Waterpark is located in the La Mer Dubai project on the shoreline near the former Jumeirah Public beach in the Jumeirah 1. Beside to the water park, you will find dozens of shops, restaurants and cafes in this project.
The Laguna Waterpark is divided into four different zones, a zone for surfing, a zone for sliding with various slides, a zone for splashing and a special zone to relax.

Attractions in het water park
The highlight of the water park is the WaveOZ 180, also known as the ultimate surf machine. There are only three attractions such as this worldwide. This attraction allows you to surf on artificial waves in a 180 degree circle. Beside to the WaveOZ 180 you can also go to The Mantra water slides as an adrenalin enthusiast where you can experience weightlessness for a few seconds before you end up in the pool.

Location of the Laguna Waterpark
The Laguna Waterpark is located in the La Mer area which is located in the Jumeirah 1 district on the site of the former Jumeirah Public Beach. This beach has disappeared when the construction of the artificial islands of the new Pearl Jumeirah project off the coast of Dubai began. La Mer is located next to the Dubai Marine Beach Club resort and between Pearl Jumeirah and Jumeirah Bay on an artificially constructed piece of land of no less than 1.24 million square meters of surface. The project is also nearby the Etihad Museum, the Jumeirah Mosque and the Dubai Water Canal.
