Miami Surf

What is an amusement park without a water ride (or two)? Ranking among the top Global Village Rides is the Miami Surf, which is sure to get you completely soaked up in water. This is a rather twisty water slide, wherein you, along with three other people, sit inside a floater, which then cruises along the twists and turns of a 240-metre-long river adventure.

In addition to offering you a lot of laughs and giggles, this ride will also test your balance skills, as you try to hold on to the floater while it bumps into the slide. Make sure, however, to carry an extra set of clothes with you when you go on Miami Surf, since there is no way that you are coming out dry.

Amazing experience I enjoyed Burj Khalifa and underwater zoo alot. Thanks Thrillophilia for advance tickets booking options.
"it was a great experience. I was bit apprehensive, when I booked through thrillophilia. but, they really organized it well. I booked a VIP package (costing 3800 per person). they arranged for private pick up in Nissan Petrol. They took us to camp, which is little far but better than Al Avir. \n\nLocal operator Mr. Danyal is a nice person. He took a great care of us. \n\nwe were provided land cruiser for dune bashing. then quad bike for 20-25 mins. after that, we did horse ride and camel ride. although camel ride and horse ride were namesake only. they would allow for 2 mins only and if you want to take a longer ride, you need to pay extra. so I skipped it. \n\nCamp had good performances like belly dance, Tanura show, Fire show and Jumba. Food was served on the table. Food quality was average.\n\nalthough, In the camp, they would try to get you money through multiple activities like sand art, Premium fruit salad, premium desserts, handbags, photo printouts, photo with eagle etc. And one needs to hard bargain. like I paid 20 dhiram for photos, they started with 150 dhiram."
