“A bit of a disgrace”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

We spent over £200 on the dolphin experience which was fine not worth £200 but still a good experience. However despite paying £200 we were still expected to pay £7 to rent a locker for a few hours which is an absolute disgrace. We refused to pay this out of principle and instead took it in turns to go on the rides. Really upset by the costs and the money they force you to cough up. Even basic pictures of the dolphin experience were £12 each. Insane!!!

“Very Expensive but Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Yes this is an expensive day out and refreshments at the park are also very expensive but it is good fun. What I loved the most was not having to climb up stairs to go on the slides. You are given a giant rubber ring, you can have a single or a double ring for 2 people. They use a conveyor system so dont really have to get out of your ring if you dont want to.

Remember to take towls although you can hire them there, at a charge of course. Also good to remember flip flops as the ground can get very hot, even just walking from your lounger to the water. Bikini's are ok for ladies to wear here and it's farly relaxed but if you are a couple do not show any affection such as kissing or the attendant WILL blow a whistle at you!

A good day out if not a little pricey.

“Really good fun water park!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Aquaventure is a great water park for all ages. I went on a weekday in October and it was practically empty - I didn't have to queue for any slides for more than a couple of minutes! The park is easy to navigate with the use of the lazy/rapid river, which essentially takes you to each of the slides so you don't have to walk (also, it eases the queues during busy times).

Most of the slides were ring slides - requiring either a solo ring, double ring or group ring. I prefer these types of water slides but if you like solo slides, this might not be the park for you.

I plucked up the courage to go on the Leap of Faith (the notorious sheer drop slide that goes underwater into an aquarium) - it was definitely worth it!

The food / drinks are what you would expect from any theme park / water park - overpriced and not that great, but this is something I've learnt to accept!

It is also a great way to go and visit the Atlantis hotel which is amazing / slightly Disney-like! There are a number of restaurants such as Nobu within the resort which you could go to after.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my day at Aquaventure and I would return if I went back to Dubai.

“Aquaventure Waterpark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Brilliant, loved the waterpark - plenty of rides. I was too much of a coward to do some of the rides but my husband went on everything and it was great staying at the Atlantis, we were allowed in before non hotel guests and were able to come and go out of the waterpark as and when we pleased.

“This place is good and the staff makes it great.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Aquaventure is lots of fun and we enjoyed every minute of it. The best part, however, is the staff. Everyone is incredibly friendly and they really go out of their way to talk to their guests. Even my children commented on how nice everyone was. The slides were great and my kids loved them. My husband and I loved the lazy river!
