Waha Splashclub at The Lagoon Park in Amwaj offers an escape from urban life for the whole family.
Beat the heat at Waha Splashclub, the first Bahraini familyfriendly aquatic play attraction of its kind. The splash pad features over 30 different interactive elements, some of which are designed to focus on cognitive play and others on various levels of physical play. Superwave, for instance, allows kids to predict and anticipate when the turbine will spill over. Water Journey Labyrinth lets kids manipulate the current through different formations as they float objects downstream. PlayNuk, which accommodates toddlers and pre-schoolers, is a structure with multi-deck features, softer mists and sprays, a water canopy for shade, Water Maze and more. There are designated areas for children of all ages and abilities – those using a wheelchair can enjoy too.
All of this is arranged in a secure environment; even babies can have fun at this dynamic, zero-depth splash park. Meaning there’s no standing water or pools, which eliminates the risk of drowning. Further, Waha is equipped with safe surface flooring and fences. That being said, parents must accompany their children inside and are even encouraged to play with them. Saffero Food Truck, located at the premises, serves burgers and kids’ meals in addition to moreish sides, appetisers and hot and cold beverages. Other basic amenities such as bathrooms and showers are also available, including changing stations for babies and wheelchair-friendly facilities.
An envirionmentally sustainable park, Waha’s system recycles water, sanitising it along the way to ensure a minimal carbon footprint. It’s open all throughout the week from 12pm to 10pm and on Fridays from 10am to 10pm. The lighting at night adds to the charm of the place. The area is also available for birthday parties and other events. Their summer promotion is priced at BD7 for kids and BD2 for adults for the whole day.
