The highlight for thrill seekers is the Leap of Faith, a slide with a near-vertical 27 metre drop that shoots riders into a transparent tunnel surrounded by a shark-infested lagoon. Slightly less daunting is The Rapids, a white water river ride with caverns and waterfalls.
For young children there’s Splashers, a water playground with slides, water buckets and jets. Visitors can take time out from the excitement and relax on the private beach.
The waterpark is open daily from 10 am until sunset. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
Entrance to Aquaventure is free for hotel guests. Others need to purchase day tickets. For current prices and online ticket bookings visit the official Atlantis website.
Atlantis is situated on the crescent of the Palm Jumeirah. There are no Metro stations here. Visitors can drive, catch a taxi, or take the Palm Jumeirah Monorail from Al Sufouh.
