DUBAI – After a jam-packed launch in June, the Kabayan Weekend will be back in Dubai’s Laguna Waterpark for a second run this month.
The five-hour, after-dark access to the Dubai waterpark is available to Filipinos residents and visitors alike at a 60 percent discount of Dh49 on July 26 and 27, from 5pm to 10pm.
The event will feature a “party atmosphere based on all that the Filipino culture has to offer”, according to Laguna Waterpark in a statement. The park said that it plans to continue the Kabayan Weekend every month.
Expat Media was invited to the maiden event in June, and here’s what we saw:
Guests can expect a host of traditional Filipino hospitality, karaoke, Pinoy jams by Laguna Waterpark’s resident DJ, and Filipino favourites including pancit, adobo and halo halo.
Ticket holders will have unlimited re-entry to four unique zones, including the lazy river, a host of thrilling slides, a dedicated surf zone featuring the region’s only WaveOz 180 FlowRider, a kids’ zone and a temperature-controlled pools.
Tickets can be purchased at the gate or online. The offer is valid for all Filipinos residing in the UAE or visiting the emirates. Children under the age of two enter free. Children under the age of 13 need to be accompanied by an adult. ICA/Expat Media
