Arrived at Aquaventure Waterpark just as it opened at 10.00 via the Monorail and after finding our way to the entrance queued for approx. 20 mins to get tickets - out of 9 ticket desks only 3 were open. They are currently running a 3 for 1 summer deal where you pay 285UAED/adult for park entrance, lunch and entrance to The Lost Chambers attraction.
I noticed that as you move through the turnstiles a member of staff would check all baggage to prevent people bringing their own food into the park - hence they can tap for everything!
Towels & locker hire is available in a combo for 70UAED/pp - note: the lockers are small but quite deep so you can get a reasonable size back pack in there and they operate via a wrist band with a bar code.
TOP TIP: now that the daily temperatures are in the 40's do not forget to keep your flip flops on! By the afternoon walking from the lockers to the water is almost impossible as the floor is so hot. Also, once you're in the water the bottom has a rough texture which can also damage the soles of your feet. Next to the lockers is a small kiosk - if all else fails they sell lightweight pool shoes which you can wear all the time including on the rides. I wish I’d of found that first as my feet go trashed over the course of the day which slightly spoiled the event.
There have been points made over the food combo deals. Yes most of is deep fried but there are healthier alternatives to the usual burger and chips. I found the only real problem was the time we had to queue to order the food even though we left lunch until around 14.30 thinking it might be quieter, and the park wasn’t that busy - pot luck I suppose!
Overall I enjoyed the day there. We had intended to only stay for a few hours but actually stayed for nearly 6 so it can’t have been that bad!
