Yas Water Park Opening Abu Dhabi
With its original and immersive theme which pays tribute to Emirati culture and the country’s pearl diving heritage, the iconic waterpark is set to welcome guests in the fourth quarter of 2012. Visitors will be able to enjoy 43 rides, slides and attractions that follow the adventures of the waterpark’s main character ‘Dana’ – a young Emirati girl in search of a legendary pearl which brought prosperity to the people of her village.” Says the Yas Island web site
The Entertainment Designer website elaborates further on the story saying:
The Legend of the Lost Pearl featuring Dana, a young Emirati girl who sets out on an important quest to help the people of her village.
Pearl diving has played an important role in the history of this region. Many years ago, so the story goes, divers from the village of Qaryat Al Jewana found what they believed to be the mother of all pearls. It was a giant pearl endowed with magical properties that brought good luck to the village.
As long as it held a place of honor in the village, pearl harvests were bountiful and life was good. But when a powerful storm swept through from the desert, the pearl disappeared and life became increasingly difficult for the village. Pearls became harder and harder to find, and many were stolen away by pirates and bandits. After years of struggling to survive, Dana takes it upon herself to find the lost mystic pearl and restore it to her village. She ventures into the desert with precious few clues and band of greedy bandits on her trail
As visitors immerse themselves in Dana’s story and the suspense of the search for the lost pearl, they discover the rides that all tie in to aspects of the story. Read the full article here on the Yas Water Park Opening.
