The Al Montazah Waterpark closed its doors today, as construction work begins with plans to reopen this summer

Developers of Sharjah’s Al Montazah Waterpark have begun construction work on Phase 2 of the waterpark.

The Al Montazah Waterpark, the first family entertainment destination to open in Sharjah is preparing a large-scale expansion and development of its facilities.

The Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) recently announced the start of Phase 2 of development, state news agency, WAM reported.

The expansion plan aims to cater to the growing number of visitors to the park each year, particularly during summer months, public holidays, and festivities, as well as to offer new rides, entertainment and better services to customers.

The waterpark closed its doors today, as construction work begins.

The expansion programme seeks to boost tourist visits and improve the attractiveness of the emirate, in general. Plans call for the park to reopen this summer.

Commenting on the expansion of the park, Khalid Ibrahim Al Qaseer, manager of Al Montazah, said: "We promise visitors and vacationers an exceptional leisure and entertainment experience by the summer of 2017.

“The new facility will see a shift in the quality of services we deliver. Our main aim is to significantly enhance visitor ease, accessibility, and safety, especially for our young guests, who we consider our most valued customers."

Under the development plan, a variety of new water rides will be added to the waterpark, which is expected to see 3,000 visitors daily, while the amusement facility will host 5,000 guests every day, once the park reopens.
