Attractions at the Giwa 

   As the largest water park in West Africa, Giwa Gardens has several attractions which will thrill their visitors, creating a memorable experience for them. These attractions include Victoria Waves, River Congo, Pirates of the Caribbean, the Waterhouse, the Python, the Rainbow, and many others. 

Victoria Waves is one of the best attractions in the Giwa Gardens as it enables visitors to experience the thrill of being afloat in an ocean. The constant ebbing and flowing of the pool water along with the instability of the water gives the illusion of being at sea. However, the presence of other swimmers drives home an exhilarating feeling. 

 River Congo is another iconic attraction in the Giwa Gardens. Of course, this isn’t the same as the African River, however, this attraction showcases a waterway with water flowing at high speed. The River Congo attraction tests your swimming skills as it forces the swimmer to brave crazy twists and turns. While seemingly dangerous, this is one of the most interesting attractions in the Giwa Gardens. 

   Pirates of the Caribbean is an attraction at the Giwa Gardens which throws visitors back to the pirate Era. Visitors climb aboard the great vessel where water guns and other pirate-themed accessories are made available so that they can experience the ultimate pirate lifestyle. 

  The Waterhouse is a water-themed maze filled with stairs, slides, waterfalls, and squirting jets of water which will catch you unaware. The feeling of unexpectedly getting drenched or attacked by a jet of water is the major appeal of the multi-coloured slide, which gives a thrilling feeling as the colours around you change as you speed down the slide before ending up in the pool.

Social Media Engagement

   The largest water park in West Africa has spread its roots on many of the leading social media platforms. Its engaging attractions have successfully drawn a high level of followers and made the water park garner popularity. Take Instagram and TikTok as an example, the Giwa Gardens have a shocking 55 thousand followers and about 500 thousand views respectively on these two social media platforms. 

Even on Facebook and YouTube, Giwa Gardens has done whatever it can to draw more views and followers including posting pictures and videos of their attractions, announcing next projects, further upgrades, and so on, this greatly increased their popularity. 

However, their success in gathering popularity and so many followers is mostly because their services are very satisfying to their customers. If this was not the case, the low reviews they would’ve gotten due to bad customer service would have led to a gradual decrease in their popularity.
