Wild Waters Mombasa is a water park in Nyali, Mombasa. That introduction, however, does not do Kenya’s largest water park justice. The water park is a family-themed, fun-filled, adrenalin rush, all-you-can-do-with-water kind of place. While everyone else is heading down to the beach to have a one-foot wave meekly splash against their feet, the real water action is taking place at Wild Waters Mombasa.
This one of a kind water park in Kenya is located in Nyali along Links Road. It is adjacent to Mamba Village across from Nyali Golf Club. You can’t miss it. Except maybe on Mondays when it is usually closed. Maybe then you can actually enjoy a relaxing day in any one of Mombasa’s best beach resorts.
Let’s Slide Into It
Wild Waters Mombasa’s highlight feature is its slides. The slides come in various styles all guaranteed to have your heart racing as you speed down faster than the legal speed limit in Kenya – a bit of an exaggeration there – all to end up in a big splash down at the pool.
Multine and Harakiri
For those of you who may know a thing or two about Japanese Samurai culture, Harakiri was the act by a Samurai of committing suicide by disembowelment rather than surrender or be caught by the enemy. It was considered a dignified way to die rather than suffer the humiliation of being caught by the enemy. Now, why the good people at Wild Waters Mombasa decided to name one of their slides that is anyone’s guess. However, Multine and Harakiri are four slides joined next to each other and are quite popular with families or groups. Usually, the point is four individuals to take their marks at the top of the slide, sliding mats in hand, and race down the wet slides and skim across the water surface on the pool below. It’s just a lot of fun.
Spirals are slides made like tubes that spiral all the way down to the pool below. Once you enter the tube at the top, you are engulfed in total darkness as you speedily spiral down the slide which opens up into the pool below. As you guessed it, this only ends one way. A big splash into the pool. Basically, slide, splash, repeat!
The flume bowl is a slide that ends in a bowl-like structure than one spins around in until being dropped in the middle down to the swimming pool. You’d have to experience it to really get its thrill. Worth noting is that this slide is strictly for adults only who are good swimmers as the pool below is five feet deep.
The Water Play Station
This is an area of Wild Waters Mombasa particularly popular with kids. Water Play Station has jets of water spraying from all directions. Children can climb the structure in the spraying water and splash around in the shallow pool. One amazing feature of the Water Play Station is an enormous bucket that fills up with water and automatically tilts over to pour the water on all and sundry in the Water Play Station.
The Lazy River is quite literally for lazying around. It is a 270-meter river-like channel of water that surrounds the entire water park. One can lay atop a tube and just drift away in the river taking in the sunshine and observing everything going on around you.
The Rain Dance Area
Dancing in the rain is a long-standing theme in Romantic films and whatnot. If, for some reason, this is an item on your bucket list, well, best to do it at Wild Waters Mombasa. The Rain Dance Area is an area set aside for dancing with music playing and artificial rain falling on the ‘dance floor’.
5 pools, smaller slides, and a castle comprise the kids’ pool area. Kids can have their own fun in a safe area with reasonable depths of water.
There are also air amusement rides and bumper cars. The thrills here just never end.
Food and Beverages
All that fun is sure to leave one famished. Worry not. Wild Waters Mombasa has food courts to satiate any palate. With vegetarian options, the food courts also offer dishes from various parts of the world including Chinese food. Barbecues, tandoori, and burgers are also amongst the selection.
Soft and hard drinks are also available at the Papillion Bar. The food court area is also ideal for events such as weddings, cocktail parties, and receptions.
