The brand-new experiences will be launched on March 1.
Dubai is all set to live up to its reputation as the home of world records, with the addition of a slew of brand-new waterslides and thrill-seeking experiences.
Atlantis Aquaventure on Thursday announced a bevy of new experiences, including the world’s tallest waterslide of its kind, the longest family water coaster in the world of its kind, the tallest vertical drop body slide in the Middle East, and the region’s first cliff jumping experience.
The new experiences will launch and be available to the public starting March 1.
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."
At 48-metres tall, Trident Tower – the biggest in Aquaventure – boasts 12 record-breaking waterslides and attractions.
From Medusa's Lair to the Odyssey of Terror, visitors can expect a whole range of moderate to high thrills that promise to keep them coming back for more.
Meanwhile, Splashers Lagoon and Splashers Cove, 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.
Kelly added, "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."
The amusement park has also doubled the length of its beach to a kilometre.
The waterpark is open to external guests too, so one does not have stay in the resort to experience its thrills.
