Dubai is synonymous with grand, larger-than-life attractions and Aquaventure Dubai is no exception. This water park
in Dubai is quite possibly the
most ambitious in the world, set at the top of one of
its most amazing manmade constructions, Palm
The Palm Islands have captured the world’s imagination. All three, each in the shape of a palm tree, are visible from space with the naked eye. Aquaventure Dubai is the crowning touch of Palm Jumeirah and has become one of the city’s most popular attractions. You’ll find Aquaventure at Atlantis Dubai—a fabulous, beachside hotel and resort complex in a city full of fantastic, upscale luxury hotels.
Among all the things to do here, this Dubai water park is undoubtedly the one offering the most fun for people of all ages and athletic skills. Aquaventure Dubai is set on 2,300 feet of beachfront, so there’s plenty of opportunity for those who wish to lazily enjoy the seas of the Arabian Gulf. Decks and platforms are found between the thrilling rides, slides, and waterscapes that make up the adventure playground of this water park in Dubai. With nearly five million gallons of fresh water, there is something for everyone at Aquaventure Dubai.
The jewel in the crown of Aquaventure at Atlantis Dubai is the Ziggurat, a Mesopotamian-style pyramid that features a near vertical slide almost 100 feet high and appropriately dubbed the “Leap of Faith.” You don’t simply plunge into a pool of water, but deep into an underwater shark-infested lagoon. This is only one of the attractions at this Dubai water park that includes seven waterslides and much more. This water park in Dubai also has an exciting river ride stretching 1.5 miles that includes tidal pools, rapids, swells, and waves nearly seven feet high. All that water can be refreshing, especially if you"ve been on a thrilling desert safari in Dubai"s surrounding dunes.
Within Aquaventure at Atlantis Dubai is Dolphin Bay, where you can swim and snorkel with a pod of dolphins in an intimate setting with no more than ten people—or lounge on the beach and watch these intelligent creatures frolic in the surf. Along with the Ziggurat’s shark lagoon, Dolphin Bay is part of an extensive marine ecosystem built around the mythical lost world of Atlantis, with viewing panels into submerged tunnels and passageways teeming with aquatic life.
Aquaventure Dubai has plenty to keep children occupied as well, with Splashers, a water playground with more subdued thrills like tipping water buckets, slides, climbing frames, and rope bridges. There are also supervised marine adventures so children can learn about sea life and the aquatic wonderland that surrounds them.
Among other things to do in Dubai, you’ll find some of the world’s best shopping and most exclusive luxury hotels. You can head to a desert safari among the Arabian sand dunes or glide along slopes covered with real snow. First decide when to go for your Dubai holidays and be sure to include this Dubai water park in your plans. You may even consider staying at Atlantis, one of the finer hotels in Dubai.
Aquaventure Dubai is accessible daily and opens at 10:00 a.m. Full-day and three-day passes are available, with children (aged aged 3 to 7, or less than 4 feet tall) less expensive than adults.
