The world’s largest waterpark is opening in Dubai, and it’s going to be huge.
Atlantis The Palm’s Aquaventure waterpark’s brand-new, massive extension is opening on Monday March 1, and Time Out Dubai’s been along for a first look.
Get ready for some spectacular thrills on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah as Trident Tower, Splashers Lagoon and Splashers Cove are promising some awesome new slides and rides.
The huge extension means that Aquaventure is now the world’s largest waterpark, as the venue has expanded by a third. And it now features a total of 28 brand-new record-breaking waterslides and attraction.
There are 12 new slides in Trident Tower, which stands at 48m tall, and 16 in across Splashers Lagoon and Splashers’ Cove – the latter two of which form the largest kids-only waterpark experience in the Middle East.
Head for heights? It’s time to tackle the world’s tallest waterslide of its kind, as well as the longest family water coast of its kind, the tallest vertical drop body slide in the Middle East and the region’s first cliff jumping experience.
This means there are now a splashtastic 105 slides and attractions at Aquaventure.
“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,” said Tim Kelly, executive vice president and managing director of Atlantis The Palm.
“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.”
