6 Tips for Visiting the Aquaventure

1
Visit the AquariumDon’t miss the Lost Chambers Aquarium. It’s included in tickets for the Aquaventure Waterpark and is well worth seeing in its own right. It could also be the perfect way to wind down after an adrenaline-filled day.

2
Go a Little DeeperIf you’re nervous about diving, why not try Aquatrek? The special helmet lets you breathe while walking on the floor of the pool or aquarium. You’ll still get to encounter fish up close, but without having to swim or learn how to handle diving equipment.
3
Stay Safe in the SunCome prepared for hot days. Towels are available to rent but you can bring your own to save time renting them. Don’t forget to pack sunscreen!
4
Avoid Weekends or HolidaysLines for the slides can be very long, so if you can, pick a weekday or arrive early to avoid the biggest crowds.
5
Hotel Guests get PriorityIf you’re staying at Atlantis The Palm then you can get into Aquaventure Waterpark for free on each day of your residence, plus you’re entitled to discounts on a range of special experiences, including Aquatrek and dolphin experiences.
6
Check the Dress CodeThere is a dress code: you can wear board shorts or speedos, one- or two-piece swimsuits, burkinis, and rashguards/rash vests. Abayas, long shirts, trousers, underwear, or any other normal outdoor clothing aren’t allowed to be worn on the slides for safety reasons.

King of the Waterparks: Thrill Rides and Attractions

Aquaventure has several awesome slides and rides for daredevils, including body slides, tube slides, and group slides.

The Leap of Faith

This 60 foot high (18 meters) drop you nearly vertically before letting you slide in a clear tube past sharks and cownose rays. You’ll experience speeds of up to 37mph (60 km/h), but while the slide will be over before you know it, you’ll feel the adrenaline in your system for the rest of the day.

Poseidon’s Revenge

If you thought the Leap of Faith was scary, then Poseidon’s Revenge really kicks it up a notch. You start standing inside a capsule before the floor drops out from underneath you and you’re launched on a breathtakingly quick and looping ride to the bottom and safety. Make sure you pay extra attention to the safety instructions on this ride.

Shark Attack

Shark Attack is a tube ride that starts out pretty dark and quick, before dropping you into a clear corridor where you’re surrounded by sharks. You’ll be pushed through the corridor at a relatively slow pace for a ride so you’ll have plenty of time to look at the toothy creatures surrounding you.

Atlantean Flyer

The Atlantean Flyer isn’t a waterslide, it’s a sequence of ziplines that add together to make one of the longest ziplines in the UAE! If you’re scared of heights then you might want to give this one a miss, but daredevils will be rewarded with great views of the waterpark, the Dubai skyline, beautiful beaches, and the chance to look down on their friends and family in the lazy river.

Fun for all the Family

When Aquaventure first opened the main criticism was that options for small children were limited. The park management listened and now there’s plenty to do for visitors too young to try the more extreme rides. Splashers Island and Splashers Mountain are smaller parks within the park, designed especially for those under 3’9 (1.2m) tall.

Splashers Mountain

This slide and playground complex includes 7 child-sized waterslides, climbing courses, and two large buckets that fill up and tip over at intervals to soak anyone playing below. Older kids can be left to explore by themselves, while toddlers will enjoy paddling in the shallow water.

Splashers Island

This kid-friendly complex includes 7 slides, including a tube slide and racing slides, plus areas to explore and rope bridges to climb across. It’s surrounded by sun loungers with shades so that parents can sit comfortably nearby while their children play.

Child-sized Playgrounds

There’s no need to worry about chasing your kids up and down ladders and across rope bridges: the playground is built to be child-sized. You might want to supervise younger children from the outside, but kids who are used to playgrounds on land will be comfortable exploring and crawling around on these fun-filled structures.

Lifeguards on Duty

You don’t have to worry about your kids getting in trouble on the slides in Splashers Island or Mountain. Staff members watch over the entrance and exit to any slides where children might need assistance and make sure that the slides don’t get overcrowded or dangerous. There are also lifeguards on patrol to help anyone who does get in trouble. That being said, kids who can’t yet swim should use flotation devices or be under constant supervision by an adult.

Animal Encounters

Aquaventure isn’t just a waterpark, there are also plenty of opportunities to interact with some of nature’s most charismatic sea creatures, including dolphins! Tickets to the encounters include a safety briefing and a lesson about how the animals live and behave in the wild.

Dolphins

If you’ve ever wanted to encounter nature’s friendliest ocean mammals, then it’s worth a trip to Dolphin Bay, home to a large family of Indo-Pacific Bottlenose dolphins. There’s a range of experiences to choose from, and you don’t necessarily need to be able to swim to meet the animals.

Dolphin Photo Fun allows you to stay on dry land while petting the dolphins and includes a photograph of your meeting. The Dolphin Encounter takes place in shallow water and is suitable for all ages, as you won’t have to swim to meet the dolphins, while the Dolphin Adventure is available to all confident swimmers aged 8 and over, as you’ll be joining the dolphins in the pool!

Dolphin Trek lets you use the Aquatrek helmets to walk on the bottom of the lagoon and is suitable for all guests over the age of 8, regardless of whether you can swim or not. Dolphin Snorkel lets you snorkel with the dolphins, while the Dolphin Royal Swim sees the dolphins taking you for a ride, towing you safely across the lagoon.

Sea Lions

You can also meet sea lions at Aquaventure’s Sea Lion Point! Sea Lion Photo lets you meet and pet the friendly sea lions before posing for a photograph together. Confident swimmers aged 6 and over can also take part in Sea Lion Discovery, where you can swim and play with the sea lions in a safe and supervised environment.

Aquatrek

This might not be a traditional animal encounter, but it will definitely get you close to plenty of marine animals! You don’t even need to swim to take part in this underwater experience, all you need to do is wear the special Aquatrek helmet so that you can breathe as you explore the Ambassador Lagoon where 65,000 different animals live, including sharks and rays. Children have to be at least 8 years old to participate.
