Attractions In Aquaventure Waterpark
After checking out the Aquaventure Waterpark map, you can start your exploration with the following attractions:
1. Water Slides
Tower Of Poseidon: Anyone over 1.2 meters tall can take up the challenge of riding the Tower Of Poseidon where you will experience the ultimate surge of adrenaline with the world’s largest waterslide named Anaconda. After sliding and twisting through the dark tunnel, a drop into world’s largest fiberglass tube will be icing on the cake.
Zoomerango: Feel weightless while sliding through vertical zooms and mega plummets of the Zoomerango. Dual waterslides inside the Anaconda will take you through twists and turns in high speed. You will surely enjoy every dime spent in this biggest water slide in the UAE.
Poseidon’s Revenge: You can also step inside the capsule of Poseidon’s Revenge and wait till the floor slides beneath your feet and you plummet at 60 kph and then propel upwards!
Tower Of Neptune: At the nine-storied tall Tower Of Neptune, the vertical drop from the Leap Of Faith through the acrylic tube will let you watch the rays and sharks. The fish and shark-filled lagoon can be explored with the inner-tube journey of Shark Attack. The labyrinthine tunnels of the Water Coasters will plop you in the lazy river.
2. River Rides
The Aquaventure Waterpark rides can be best enjoyed when you are in an inner-tube and are wading through the waterways, zero-depth pools and of course, the rapids. Rapids will give you the thrill of surfing through waves of the river course spanning 1.6 kilometers. If you are adventurous enough and are able to take up the challenge of swimming through tidal waves, there is The Torrent where the wave generator will stun you with over 1 meter high swells.
3. Shark Safari
Put on your diving helmet and get into the Shark Lagoon, regardless of whether you are an experienced diver or not, to get up close with the marine creatures. In the controlled and safe underwater environ, walking and breathing will never be a problem. Anyone over 8 years of age can take up this adventure to watch the colorful fishes, sharks, and rays. A training-orientation session, offered by professional marine biologists, will be given so that you can know which animals you are likely to encounter.
4. Cownose Ray Feeding
The crystal clear shallow water of the Shark Lagoon houses not just the sharks but also the elusive Cownose Rays which are friendly enough to wade around you. Marine biologists will accompany the kids in this interactive session while also sharing their knowledge about these creatures. Unlike the Aquaventure Waterpark in Bahamas, here even 6-year-old kids can hand-feed the rays under the supervision of family members and trainers. It is a fun activity for both adults and children.
5. Splasher’s Children’s Play Area
Kids below 4 feet height can climb the Splasher’s Mountain with their parents while passing through the large tipping buckets, climbing frames and also the sprays. The Splasher’s Island in Aquaventure Waterpark in Dubai is the newest addition with seven kid-friendly waterslides. There are also fourteen family-friendly waterslides like Wave, Cyclone, Blaze, etc. where both adults and kids can slide together. For a fulfilling family activity, these slides are vacation highlights and can make for great family photos.

6. Aquaventure Beach
The private beach with soft white sands stretching over 700 meters is perfect for relaxing on sun-loungers. You can pre-book the family-sized, medium, large and extra large cabanas which are offered at price starting from INR 19,279. The reserved and shaded seating area of Neptune’s Retreat can be booked for the whole day with two sunbeds, fruits, water, and other host services. We suggest that you get to it only after you have had a taste of adventure on the slides and marine activities as the cabanas will be a good place to unwind.
7. Atlantean Flyer Zip Line
The longest in the middle-east, the Atlantean Flyer Zipline is not for the faint-hearted as it will take you twenty meters above the waterpark. While being harnessed and suspended safely, you will be able to take in the panoramic view of sprawling beachfront, the Atlantis, and stunning Dubai skyline. While we do not recommend it for children, adolescents and adults can get an experience of a lifetime when on the zip line harness. With the helmet, you might also get the option of decking a camera to record the whole experience.
Shopping And Gastronomic Retreat
A number of kiosks at the Aquaventure Waterpark sell everything from beach accessories to toys, beach essentials to souvenirs and more.
Smoothies, fresh fruits, ice-creams, popcorn, and sorbets are always stocked at the kiosks. You can have sandwiches, hot dogs, and shawarma at Waves or Splashers and then cold beverages and shakes at Lagoons. Snappers offer varieties of cakes, tea, coffee, pastry, and frozen items.
