Death-Defying Drop on The Leap of Faith
An unmissable experience for those who crave adventure (cue: not for the faint-hearted) at the waterpark is the Leap of Faith – you will know why once you experience it yourself!

It will easily qualify for the most thrilling and daring thing you’d do at Aquaventure Waterpark in Atlantis.

Beginning 13 metres up the Ziggurat of Aquaventure Waterpark, Shark Attack lets you experience a safari of a different kind.

The fibreglass allows you to enjoy 360-degree view of the shark filled lagoon.
Heart-Thumping Ride on Poseidon’s Revenge
This is one of the most frightening waterslides in the Middle East; similar design but an intense version of Tower of Neptune’s Leap of Faith. Feel your pulse pounding and your adrenaline go into overdrive, as you enter a chamber or capsule that is quite different from a standard slide entrance, with trapdoors. The floor moves from beneath you, plummeting you 31 metres down through the loops of the 116-metre water slide at a speed of 60 km/h before being propelled upside down in the ride.
Soar High Above Atlantis on Atlantean Flyer
Experience the thrill of sky-diving and hang-gliding on the longest zip-line in the Middle East while you zip by gravity from a high waterslide tower, enjoying breathtaking views over Dubai and the tropical waterscape of Atlantis resort. The zipline ride, which stretches 65-feet above the Aquaventure Waterpark, Flyer is the world’s first zip line integrated into a waterslide tower. The magnetic braking system of the zipline is able to bring riders from top speeds of 15 km/h to a standstill in seconds, and it takes just one minute to travel end to end.
Brave the Waves and Thrills of The Rapids
The Rapids is a 1.6-kilometre river adventure ride with gushing rapids that send you twisting and spinning through raging torrents with thrills around every turn to deliver an adrenaline rush! It is the longest waterpark river in the Middle East and the only river that has multiple level rapids. A variety of large pools with spacious sundecks are available along the Rapids, allowing guests to easily dip-in and out of the water at their leisure around the tropical waterscape of the waterpark.
Interesting Trivia: 15 million litres of fresh water are used to propel inner-tube riders through the high intensity rapids, wave surges and waterfalls.

Its tight corners and 9.2-metre-wide section that sends riders flying up the sides on two AquaTubes at staggering speeds of up to 35 km/h.
Get Set for A Serpentine Spin on Slitherines
Slitherine is the first dual waterslide (a suspended waterslide within a waterslide) where you can slide through a wild frenzy of twist and turns around Aquaconda. At 31 metres height and 182 metres length, the twin racing tube ride features fibre glass tubes that are partially transparent allowing you to race your friends and family as there are timers at the end of the waterslides that tell you how fast you were and capture the fastest times.
Defy Gravity on Zoomerango
Feel gravity like no other rides on Zoomerango.
