Following an initiative by the World’s Leading Waterpark to celebrate the Year of Tolerance, Yas Waterworld has succeeded in its attempt to set the Guinness World Record for ‘Most Nationalities in a Swimming Pool’ on April 12.
The event saw 102 nationalities come together to represent their home countries and celebrate the values of co-existence and tolerance that the UAE has long embraced.
Commenting on the record-breaking event, Leander De Wit, General Manager of Yas Waterworld said: “It fills me with an immense amount of pride to be able to celebrate this milestone record in honor of the Year of Tolerance, which was made possible thanks to the co-existence of cultures and rich diversity that we are blessed to have in the UAE.”
Yas Waterworld guests reveled in the celebratory atmosphere as they held their countries’ flags while standing in the Amwaj Wave Pool to help take the waterpark to Guinness World Records fame.
The waterpark’s guests from across the globe then went on to enjoy a day filled with family-friendly adventures, including complementary face painting and the park’s 40 exhilarating rides, slides and attractions.
