The water in the flood river is known to come gushing down at those that dare to stand in its path. With a hundred thousand liters of water jostling around it is a swimmers paradise as they try to get the hang of the meter high waves.
Next on the Dubai tourist attractions list is a ride that’s known to run rings round unsuspecting visitors. Sitting in singles or two abreast, the ride is nothing but a downhill journey.
