Last month, Aquaventure in Dubai became one of the largest waterparks in the world, home to more child-friendly slides and areas than any other waterpark. After undergoing what is the biggest waterpark expansion in history, the park size and ride numbers have roughly increased by a third and the size of the Aquaventure beach has doubled to 1km.
Home to 105 total slides, attractions and experiences, the waterpark features record-breaking slides and first-in-the-region experiences, Trident Tower, Splashers Lagoon and Splashers Cove.
The 28 new record-breaking waterslides and attractions (12 in Trident Tower and 16 in Splashers), all 105 slides, attractions and experiences across the park will be included complimentary with every stay at Atlantis, The Palm.
Tim Kelly, Executive Vice President and Managing Director, Atlantis Dubai, said: “As the biggest waterpark expansion in history, we are delighted that Atlantis, Dubai is now home to one of the world’s largest waterparks, as well as record-breaking waterslides some of which cannot be found anywhere else globally. Now with 105 slides, attractions and experiences for all ages and thrill levels, the expansion has increased Atlantis Aquaventure by a third in size to feature 79 rides across three towers, 26 marine and watersport experiences and 26 food and beverage outlets and kiosks across the park. We’ve also doubled the length of Aquaventure beach to 1km. This brand-new destination further enhances our positioning as the leading entertainment destination in the region, while simultaneously elevating the UAE’s status as both a regional and global tourism hub for families.
We are extremely proud to be able to present this record-breaking expansion at what has been a challenging time for us all, but with our stringent health and safety measures in place and expansive staff training programmes, we look forward to delivering fun in a safe environment that Atlantis, Dubai is known for.”
