  • [Review] Aquaventure on the Palm in Dubai

    Aquaventure in the Bahamas is according me the best waterpark in the world. The Disney waterparks look better than Aquaventure but still lack the edge that place has.

    There are two Atlantis resorts in the world. One is in the Bahamas and the other is in the United Arab Emirates. The one in UAE is at the very end or top if you want of one of the man made palm shaped islands in Dubai.

    Atlantis The Palm opened with a huge party and an even bigger firework show. It was one of those larger than life projects we all have herd much about in Dubai. What people forgot was that there already was one Atlantis since many years in the Bahamas.
    The most unique feature of the Atlantis resort is the waterpark Aquaventure. The waterpark is what makes the hotel.

    Just like in the Bahamas this Aquaventure features a lazy river that connects to many slides, a dolphin area, aquariums and a beach.

    The beach at Aquaventure

    The Aquaventure parks are themed and have a good enough design to satisfy the picky guests like me.
    The one thing that struck me with the park in Dubai was that it lacked the big futuristic building from the park in the Bahamas. It overall felt like the Dubai park had fewer slides.

    Some of the slides were hard to find, wich I find odd.

    This park has a few watercoasters. I got stuck in one and slided backwards and had to leave the slide. The people working at that slide told me that some of the engines to the pumps need to be replaced. I just felt too fat for not being able to go up that hill.

      I agree that the Bahamas Atlantis is superior, and has gambling of course, which the Dubai one does not. I didn't think the food in Aquaventure was that bad though it was expensive. Best to walk out from the water park's gate and go to the Gourmet Burger Kitchen for a burger and shake. It's delicious and about the same price as the lesser fare in the park. There are some amazing restaurants in the hotel including a Nobu. Dubai Aquaventure is a beautiful park even if it's not up to the level of the one in the Bahamas, which is stunning. Timmy, you're going to have to come back and try the new Yas Island water park in Abu Dhabi when it opens soon, it looks to be simply incredible and could become the best water park in the world.
