Aquaventure Waterpark Reviews
Aquaventure Waterpark is one of the largest waterparks in the world, and the largest in all of Europe and Middle East combined. This vast expanse allows it to house some of the most unique and record-breaking rides and slides to be found anywhere. From 9-storeyed plunges down a chute to ride inflatables in rapids that send you down as well as up slides on water jets, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
The location of Aquaventure also adds to its popularity. It is situated on the Palm Islands and visiting Aquaventure means you will be visiting the Palms as well. The Palms are an iconic Dubai attraction that feature on every Dubai visitors list. Since most other recreational parks are located outside or on the outskirts of Dubai, Aquaventure's location is a real boon.
Apart from that, Aquaventure is located in the Atlantis Resort. Entrance to the park is free for guests staying at the Atlantis. There are also other world famous experiences at the Atlantis such as the Dolphin Bay where you can swim and interact with dolphins as well as enjoy a dolphin show, Sea Lion Point where you can take photos with cuddly seals and the Lost Chambers Aquarium.
Like most theme parks in Dubai, the only drawback you will face is the number of visitors you might encounter at the park on weekends. To avoid the rush, it is advisable that you visit the park on weekdays.
Absolutely brilliant place for a great relax while the kids have fun in and out of the water fountains plenty of staff around watching every move we had a fantastic time and we r going again on friday weather permitting
ADVENTURE TIME!!! I wanna go back right now! Get there early and stay the whole day! There’s so much to do! The water slides and activities seem endless. What an amazing place. Showers and towels available when you’re done. Great food, stores and other activities available when you’re done. The beach is breathtaking and huge! That have trollers that bring you throughout the park so you don’t have to walk. We also did the dolphin encounter. I highly recommend!
