I don't like waterparks but I went as part of the group preference for the day. You can use their lockers at 40AED and they had a package of 250AED/adult for park entrance, combo meal and entrance to the lost chamber aquarium. To dive with dolphins is around 700AED depending on which ride you want to do. The great idea is that almost all slides takes you to the same current river that circulates all park and you can go from one to other very fast. It will only depend on your strength to climb several times the stairs. But, without been a fun of this kind of attractions, I thought it was a great fun at the end. The slides are easy and fun and if you want to stay far from the noise, you can relax in the beach. The aquarium is beautiful and it is similar to other Atlantis one (i.e. Paradise Island in The Bahamas).

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!

Overall a brilliant experience with lots of fun and exciting stuff to do - a brilliant addition to the Atlantis hotel.

The rides and slides are so much fun, the place is clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. Lots of places to stop for food and drink so no reason to leave the park.

Overall a must-do when visiting Dubai

Excellent day out. Thoroughly enjoyed the rides particularly the river ride and Slitherin. Definitely worth purchasing a rash vest before you go.

We stayed a week at Atlantis in the Bahamas a few years ago and now came to Dubai wondering if it was going to be exactly the same or somehow different.

Yes, it had the same style, but the waterslides were indeed different, except for the classic "Leap of faith", so it was a wonderful experience again, we had a lot of fun!

We came for a day visit and the ticket included lunch AND access to the aquarium... so that was a great deal! Besides, the beach was also avaiable and beautiful with chairs included, a soccer and voleybeach area, and more.

TIP: buy the ticket online! The lines were 30 minute to an hour long that day.. you can skip them with online tickets. We didn't had them so we ended up buying the ticket using the WIFI provided by the Restaurants there at Atlantis (passw: dineatatlantis). It saved our morning!
