Aquaventure Atlantis Dubai Water Park

Atlantis Water Park Dubai

Aquadventue is in my opinion the best waterpark in Dubai! Below is a list of rides which me and my dad have been on. (I was actually too scared to go on the leap of faith, so here’s my dads review on it).

If you stay at The Atlantis Hotel you get free entry into the water park as often as you like. This is great, as when the kids get tired,or if it gets too hot you are only a short walk away from the room. The park is also available to non hotel guests, we recommend booking tickets in advance as at peak times availability may be limited.

Visit the waterpark midweek, and as early as possible to beat the queues. The park can get very busy on weekends with long queues.

Travel light. The lockers in the park are at least £8, even to hotel residents!


  is 27.5 meters tall and 61 meters long, from the top of the Ziggurat the Leap of Faith catapults riders into a see-through tunnel and through a shark-filled lagoon, where guitar sharks, bow mouth sharks, white tip, black tip and grey reef sharks all live. This ride is only for the brave!
The plunge
Descend from the centre of the Ziggurat on one of the many water-coasters. Twist, turn and blast upwards along the power-jets of The Plunge.
Shark Attack
Journey to the mysterious core of the Ziggurat through dark twisting tunnels before emerging slowly into the lagoon at a leisurely shark viewing pace. WARNING! Sometimes the glass can get steamed up and affect your view of the sharks.
The Conveyor
No need to climb seemingly endless stairs! Jump onto The Conveyor and be taken effortlessly inside The Ziggurat where your next thrilling ride awaits. I’ve never been uphill on a waterslide~ until I met The Conveyor!
River Rapids!
This high octane river takes riders on a white water journey through caverns with many twists and turns. Make what you want of this ride ; it can be a fast-paced adventure or a slow relaxing drift taking in the scenery.


Follow the 600 meter path of a tidal river with one meter waves though a lush tropical landscape. Try not to fall out of your tube!

Water Playground for you Children!

This water playground has loads of thrills and spills for younger kids under 1.2 meters in height. Two huge tipping buckets spin and release torrents of water, climbing frames and rope bridges lead to loads of water slides. You can even soak your dad with water jets and cannons!


There is also a large beach which your parents can relax at whilst you’re conquering the rides.

Places To Visit In Dubai


Atlantis The Palm

This is a great child friendly hotel situated on the Palm in Dubai.

There are so many things to do for kids here.

Dubai waterpark

The big attraction for me was the attached Aquaadventure Water Park. This has free entry for all hotel guests. It is also a large attraction for other tourists so it is best to get up early when the watter park is quiet. The park has lots of slides and lazy rivers. One of the slides takes you through a clear tube into a pool full of sharks (don’t worry,they cant get to you)
There is also Dolphin Bay here where you can swim with the dolphins.

If you are not staying at The Atlantis you can still come and buy a day pass for the Waterpark by clicking here.

Lost Chambers Dubai

The hotel has a massive aquarium called The Lost Chambers. When you walk into the hotel you will see the massive Aquarium which has all kinds of fish and sharks. Some hotel rooms even look into the Aquarium,rather than have windows so you can wake up in the morning eye to eye with a shark.


The are two massive pools, and a large beach. Here’s a hint for you. We went in October and although the sea looked shallow and warm, there were lots of Jellyfish and I saw 3 people get stung. If I were you I would stay on the beach. Im not sure if the jellyfish are around all year or not!

There are lots of shops in the hotel, I prefered the ones in Aquaadventure as they sold more toys and things for kids.

Exciting things to do

There are lots of activities for kids to try out in Dubai. Some of my favourites are the Desert Safari’s, Ferrari World Theme Park in Abu Dhabi and sledging in Ski Dubai (yes there is snow in Dubai!). A list of excursions can be found by clicking here

Kid Clubs

The hotel has the following for kids

A kids club for up to 12 year olds

A command center with Xbox, Playstations and Apple Computers

A play zone with climbing walls

The hotel is situated on the Palm which is fairly isolated from the rest of the city. Taxis are not expensive and once in the City (about a 10 minute journey to Dubai Marina) there are many excursions to go on and attractions to see.
