“Nice, but small”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

The place is advertised as a "Lost Atlantis" themed, but actually is more like a copy of "Unreal Tournament" or similar computer game. Beautiful design and lots of fish, but I expected much more for the cost (100 AED per person).

Once there, you can make some pictures in front of the magnificent "Atlantis" hotel. If you go with a car, the parking is half an kilometer after the "Atlantis" and then you get a free bus to the hotel.
The parking itself is free if you, when departing, show ticket that you've visited one of the attractions.

“Average experience - nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Average experience - could have been more interactive. Its basically the same as the fish around the Atlantis but you are a on a different view point. I got in free as a guest...i certainly would not pay AED 100 for that!...so beware.

At Atlantis the location of lost chambers is excellent. While visiting the aquarium, one visits the grand Atlantis itself and also the Palm Jumeirah. Aquarium has very nice fishes and some real good surprises which I will not like to disclose here. Excellent time passed here.
