“Great Place But Gets Busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Lots of fun for all ages - staying at the Atlantis Palm was very easy to get into.

Need to get there in good time to get chairs and is very busy in the afternoon. Rapids are fun and just floating around the park in the water very relaxing, although inflatables become a bit of a premium at busy times.

Definitely recommend giving a go.

“Lazy river”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

The lazy river is what you'd expect and the rapids are so funny. Everyone who works there makes sure you get the ride of your life on the rapids pushing you against the waves and splashing you.

“Just a normal water park, please read”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

I consider myself as a water park fan, I have been in many water parks around the world. We went with my wife with a huge expectative about this park since it is located in Dubai and all the attractions that we visited previous to this were great.
Couple of things that you have to know:
1- The ticket price is expensive for the number of attractions that you have there, you just visit all of them in 1 hour and are not creative at all
2- The most important thing that everybody complains about and I have NEVER seen in any other water park is that there just a few lifeboat so most of the attractions requires those and if you go to ask the staff where can you that ones, they said you have to wait 20 or 30 minutes and find one of those in the swimming pool.

“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

Whilst Americanised overall, we found this much more relaxing than Florida, where invariably you are squashed in. There is plenty of room here with the private beach overlooking the Palm, Burj etc wonderfully relaxing. The rides may not be as plentiful, but there is still plenty to chose from. Food & drink not expensive comparatively speaking - perhaps slight grumble is you cannot take in you own cool box. Loved the sun beds with the individual shades

“Awesome day out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I visited both waterparks (Aquaventure and Wild Wadi) when visiting Dubai. Aquaventure looks fresher and better maintained (it is newer as well). If you have younger kids (under 1.2m), I would suggest this park as the rides are a bit slower. If you are looking for more adventure, go for Wild Wadi.
