The first water park of its kind in the Gulf, the Aqua Park, located on Arab Gulf Street adjacent to Kuwait Towers in Kuwait, is among the biggest parks in the region. With towering water slides and swimming pool areas for adults and kids, and a range of popular restaurants from Hardee’s to Krispy Kreme and Baskin Robbins, and other juice bars and eateries, this park is a major draw for families.
Spanning an area of 60,000 square metres, the park has several entertainment options including the kiddy pool area, swimming pool for toddlers, an Octopus slide, Floating toadstools and a Flow House is located within the park.
The Aqua Park is a complete destination for families as apart from several water and fun games for adults and kids, there is scuba diving, volleyball courts, the Alooha Lagoon, Go-Kart racing, soap football, beach football, paint ball, and other amenities including separate Mosques for men and women, separate changing rooms for men and women, food courts and more.
The park, which was unveiled in 1995, has recently undergone renovation and has several exciting new rides and clean ready-to-use facilities. The General Manager of Aquapark, Mohammed Koursheed, early in 2019 confirmed that a great deal of renovation has been done to ensure maximum satisfaction for customers.

For the big kids
