Atlantis Aquaventure – the leisure and entertainment offering at Atlantis, The Palm – is set to become one of the biggest waterparks in the world with the exciting addition of a third action-packed tower, set to open in summer 2020. The waterpark is getting ready to break records with the 34-metre tall Trident Tower, which will introduce 12 incredible new slides to the Atlantis Aquaventure offering to entertain everyone from the little daredevils to the waterpark veterans.
Aquaventure offers more than 20 rides and rivers spread across 17 hectares of thrills and spills on Palm Island. Now thrill-seekers will be treated to a whole new world of fun with the addition of Trident Tower, which will feature signature world-class ProSlide rides – including the world’s longest all-new ProSlide MammothBLAST, a 449-metre family adventure water coaster that delivers uncompromising force at unprecendented speeds. Rafts rocket through winding channels, experiencing a breath-taking series of back-to-back curves, drops and uphill climbs powered by patented BLAST water propulsion technology.
Guests can also test their nerve on the Middle East’s first-ever ProSlide Dueling PIPElineBLAST/FlyingSAUCER 20 hybrid ride. Driven by patented sequential jets, this high-speed ride rockets duelling guests through gravity-defying turns and around wide-open saucer features at maximum velocity. Aquaventure fans who have already tackled the iconic Leap of Faith slide will love Trident Tower’s updated version, comprised of two fearsome slides rather than one – each dropping the guest more than 34 metres at stomach-churning speeds.
A thrilling new kids’ area will also complement the existing Splasher’s Island family zone, with highlights including four mini versions of classic ProSlide adult rides, a mega fun competitive mat racer featuring two lanes of head-first downhill fun. Children can team up and take on an exhilarating serpentine adventure built for young guests – while the braver ones can traverse the KIDZ TORNADO 24 funnel, which delivers the same thrills and excitement as the iconic ride but scaled down for size.
In addition, young guests can enjoy the swirling speeds of the KIDZ BOWL 14, which offers a gentle but authentic bowl experience designed for maximum guest comfort and ride path consistency. The new kids’ area will combine with Splasher’s Island and Splasher’s Mountain to give families lots more to enjoy, with nine thrilling waterslides designed specifically for the young adventurers.
If spending the day enjoying Aquaventure’s most fearsome and fantastic waterslides leaves guests in need of a breather, the Middle East’s first-ever action river is at hand. Guests can sit back and let the current take them through half a kilometre of twists and turns as they enjoy the incredible views of Dubai’s iconic skyline in comfort.
“At Atlantis we endeavour to deliver amazing experiences and everlasting memories to all of our guests and so enhancing the Atlantis Aquaventure offering is the natural next step in providing the best experience possible. We have carefully curated each attraction to ensure that we deliver first-of-its-kind ride technology for children, families and thrill-seekers alike. Trident Tower and its record-breaking slides will be a thrilling addition to the Atlantis experience, and we look forward to the unveiling in summer 2020,” says Tim Kelly, executive vice president and managing director, Atlantis The Palm and The Royal Atlantis,
Aquaventure’s ambitious expansion project in 2020 comes at an exciting time for Atlantis with the launch of The Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences set to open Q3, 2020.
