Halloween: ‘Spooktacular’ time at Yas – when?

By Rajive Singh

ABU DHABI 13 October 2017: Yas Waterworld is bringing back its much awaited Dana’s Spooktacular on Friday October 27.

On this special day, the park will transform into a ‘Pirates Candy Cove’– a pirate themed adventure, featuring the park’s favorite characters, naughty bandits and ghostly pirates. Yas Waterworld will be given a spooky makeover complete with Jack o’ Lanterns, cobwebs, ghostly music and ghoulish visitors.

For its third edition, and for the very first time, Dana’s Spooktacular will run throughout the entire day and offer families a full day of fun.

From 6 PM onwards, as the sun sets on the horizon, the pirate bandits and ghostly characters bring the Pirates Candy Cove to life. Families and their young ones will be able to participate in a spooktacular costume parade and show off their costumes as well as wander through the ‘Trick or Treat Wharf’ in search of sweet treats.


In addition, to fun and games, only on this special day, visitors will be able to get a black pearl at the park’s iconic pearl diving experience.

“We were very glad to host a very successful Dana’s Spooktacular last year, creating a fun evening for young and older guests alike. We’ve got plenty more tricks up our sleeves for this year, and look forward to celebrating Dana’s Spooktacular with our guests!” said Bianca Sammut, General Manager, Yas Waterworld.

Regular admission tickets are available for the day and for those who wish to join after sunset, Sundowner tickets are available from 6PM onwards at the ticketing counter for Dh125.

Date: Friday 27 October
Time: From 10am to 10pm
