Atlantis the Palm Dubai

Dirk is still working and the girls and me are going to the huge waterpark here named Atlantis the Palm. Which is a huge hotel with a water park that is build on a manmade island in the shape of a palm. It looks amazing, so we are going to check it out today!





From thrilling Master Blasters to children's twisters, Aquaventure Dubai has slide fun for the whole family. So we are going to try out some or maybe all of these rides below! More pictures of our adventure will follow, look back tomorrow!

THE LEAP OF FAITH
27.5m tall and 61m long, from the top of the Ziggurat the Leap of Faith catapults riders into a transparent tunnel and through a shark-filled lagoon, where guitar sharks, bow mouth sharks, white tip, black tip and grey reef sharks all reside.

THE PLUNGE
Descend from the centre of the Ziggurat on one of our 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.

SHAMAL
This inner tube ride blasts you into the centre of The Ziggurat and guides you directly to The Plunge for your next adventure.

THE SURGE
Starting at the top level of The Ziggurat this spine-tingling inner tube ride is not for the faint at heart! Twisting and turning, at times in complete darkness this water-coaster takes riders on a thrilling journey.

STINGER
Blast uphill on this water-coaster, starting at the first level of The Ziggurat. Riders are propelled towards the river on inner tubes.

FALLS
Splash down to Rapids River on this exciting water-coaster. Riders jet up and down and twist around before joining the river and heading around the waterpark.

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.

These sound scary and huge.... I hope I will survive :-)
The girls are excited, I am not so sure if I am going on all these slides... More tomorrow.

UPDATE: It is impossible to take pictures on these rides, so below only a few ones on the lazy river, that goes on for a while with some wild water moments, but most of the part just a small stream and you just go on and on breezing through, this we enjoyed most of the day. See in the background the leap of faith, which is the one we DIDN'T do!! But the others we survived and enjoyed!!
