Last weekend the Flusches, Aebis and the Smits went to WaHoo Waterpark.
McKenzie, Becky, Jann and Gavin
Located on the fifth floor of the City Centre Mall, WaHoo is quite the oasis in the capital city of Manama. Only in Bahrain would one go to the mall to enjoy a day of swimming and sliding!
WaHoo is an indoor/outdoor climate controlled waterpark that would blow your mind! Not a single detail was left out. From the tropical background music of Bob Marley to the textured sand beach entry every detail was right on! My boys just couldn't get enough even Gavin went for "round two" after an hour long nap!

The whole gang at lunch!
The filtered salt water is kept at about 80 degrees, making WaHoo a year round attraction. The boys had a fabulous time, we can't wait to return!

Tanner & Marco!
With at least 15 water slides, large wave pool, boogie-boarding pool, 1/2 pipe, toddler splash zone, lazy river and zero entry pool beach the fun could (and did) last all day!

As "Westerners" we really stood out from the "locals"... my fare skinned boys as well as the fare beautiful blond Aebis, not to mention that I was the only woman wearing a bikini. Oh my, you know me, always the "scandalous" one (actually, if you know me, nothing could be farther from the truth).
We spotted most of the Arab women in a full length number made of bathing suit material that sports a hood, long sleeves, pants and long skirt - that was when we coined the term "BURKINI". It appears that blue is the burkini "color of the season"! Geeeze, I'd drown in all that fabric but it seems to please a large section of the population. More power to them - it beats having to sit out on the sidelines and miss out on all the waterpark fun!
