This Halloween, head down to Wild Wadi Waterpark for a glimpse of the water park’s supernatural resident Djinn, who is set to appear from the shadows to spook guests out of her former village from 17 October to 8 November.

Wild Wadi’s latest resident could be a poltergeist, supernatural being or an apparition and is thought to be behind a number of mysterious incidents that recently spooked people at the waterpark. Strange security footage and remnants of an abandoned and demolished hotel, which was built on Djinn’s former village, were found in a closed corner at Wild Wadi.

“Haunted Heights is the UAE’s first ever haunted house in a waterpark that invites guests on a walkthrough journey through a crooked old house, by touching and feeling their way through its dark quarters. With unexpected thrills and ghostly encounters with Djinn ‘Haunted Heights’ is a must-visit attraction that will guarantee some haunted screams this Halloween season.

“For families and guests looking for some Halloween adventure this season, Wild Wadi is the only place you can soak in some waterpark play and haunted house adventures in the same day,” said Chris Perry, General Manager of Wild Wadi. “Our new ‘Haunted Heights’ attraction is a unique concept for the community and a must-visit this month.”

Parents with little ones can take part in some ‘Trick or Treating’ fun as an alternative, with free candies being given away every day. Throughout the Halloween period, parents can pick up a Trick or Treat bucket while their children visit different themed houses to collect Halloween sweets.

Guests can experience ‘Haunted Heights’ or Trick or Treating every day from 1pm – 6pm from 17 October – 8 November. For General Admission over 1.1m, the cost is 295AED and guests under 1.1m the cost AED235 which includes single admission to ‘Haunted Heights’ or the Trick or Treat.
