Aquaventure Water Park

Making a big splash, with exciting rides, a private beach, tidal pool, and plenty more besides

Aquaventure Water Park

Area: Palm Jumeirah, Dubai

The enormous, 17-hectare Aquaventure Water Park has made a big splash, with many fans saying it is the best family entertainment in Dubai.

Aquaventure has been designed so that you never have to get out of the water as you conquer the full complement of rides. These include the 27.5-meter Leap of Faith—a near-vertical drop down the face of the central ziggurat, which shoots you through a shark-infested lagoon.

Or try riding the meter-high rapids on the 2.3-kilometer tidal river that winds through tropical scenery, or one of the water-coasters with master-blasters propelling you ever upwards.

If that isn't for you, Aquaventure Water Park also offers a 700-meter private beach, a tidal pool, and countless sun loungers. There are also plenty of restaurants and snack kiosks dotted around the park.

Lines are no problem in the mornings, although expect to wait a while later in the day. But if you're after a treat, Aquaventure Water Park is definitely worth the trip.
