Atlantis The Palm doesn’t really do shy and retiring, and its water park is every bit as big, flash and impressive as you’d expect. From Shark Attack, a two-person tube slide ending inside a shark tank, to Zoomerango, a family raft attraction with huge vertical plummets and moments of weightlessness, the rides here will test even the most adventurous adrenaline junkie. Be sure to book online – you’ll get a discounted entry rate of Dhs275, and you’ll avoid the queues at the door.
Did you know?
Aquaconda, a family raft ride, is the largest waterslide in the world, ending in the biggest fibreglass tube on the globe. How very Dubai.
If you try only one ride…
Make sure it’s the park’s famous underwater shark safaris. The specially designed helmets mean you don’t have to be a scuba expert to get upclose-and-personal.
