Embarking on its year-long journey of innovation, every time adventure lovers visit Atlantis Aquaventure in 2021 there will be something new and exciting to experience. At 48-metres tall, Trident Tower – the biggest in Aquaventure – boasts 12 record-breaking waterslides and attractions. Splashers Lagoon and Splashers Cove, meanwhile, feature 16 sensational waterslides and attractions. Designed for endless hours of water-based fun, together they form the biggest kid’s only waterpark experience in the Middle East.

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."

Here's a glimpse of what you can expect.

The Odyssey of Terror Riders is the first slide in the region with a Double TornadoWAVE® and had the world’s tallest waterslide with a Double TornadoWAVE®. 

The Shockwave is a combination of speed, power, and rafting adventure where families of up to six blast forward 449 metres for over one-minute through a series of tunnels, at the speed of a giant slalom ski course. Riders drop and dive as they race along the outer wall of the curve anticipating the next change in direction as they look down the fall-line. It is also the world’s first MammothBLAST™ family rafting water coaster, and the longest family rafting water coaster in the world.

The Medusa’s Lair is an intricate web of twists and turns, just like Medusas’ snaky hair. Riders are blasted through a series of dark caves, steep slopes and drops as they race one another to the end.

The Blackout is billed as the scarier sister to Leap of Faith, daring riders plummet down an almost-vertical drop that delivers extreme thrills and high velocities from beginning to end.
