german-based manufacturer wibit sports marks another milestone in its 20-year company history; the so-called dubaiTAG is the first of its kind and has been installed at the famous jumeirah beach residence earlier in september. the innovative floating structure is both an inflatable playground and a powerful means of promoting tourism in dubai

designed and manufactured by wibit sports, the structure is composed of almost 100 modular components that have been arranged into the word D-U-B-A-I to create a giant water park — 77 m long and 35 m wide. with such a large scale, the floating island can easily hold 200 people at the same time and offer a wide range of water activities. complying to the state-of-the-art safety standards, the dubaiTAG floating installation is made out of extra thick PVC material.
