Project Description:

Sharjah Waterfront City (Sharjah WFC) was promoted as a series of ten islands interconnected by canals made by nature and spread across 36 km of coastal land on the northeastern coast of Sharjah. It was expected to be the largest commercial, residential and tourism development project in the Emirate of Sharjah upon completion, with an area of around 60 million square feet. Components of the planned development included residential, retail, office, entertainment, and a world-class water theme park, master planned and designed by JRA.

Crystal Lagoon Water Theme Park was envisioned to spread over 1.5 million square feet and include 40 water and dry rides, including the possibility of a coaster that would combine the action of a water ride with the interactivity of a video game, making it the first of its kind in the Middle East. Reaching a diverse array of theme and water park enthusiasts, the park would also feature family rides, thrill rides, 4D dark rides, a state-of-the-art planetarium and numerous children's rides. To encourage prolonged length of stay and to offer a respite from the thrills of the day, the park was to offer a dazzling fountain show and evening spectacular.
