3. The Poseidon’s Revenge is officially the most frightening waterslide in the Middle East

A ride not for the faint hearted, the Poseidon’s Revenge will have your pulse pounding and your adrenaline going into overdrive. It begins as you climb into one of the two launching capsules with your feet on a trapdoor. The ride slips the floor off from under your feet, plummeting you 31 metres down through the loops of the 116-metre water slide, as you freefall at a speed of 60 km/h before being propelled upside down in the capsule.

Of course, the waterslides are the major attraction at Aquaventure Waterpark but if you want to experience the thrill of free-falling and hang-gliding at the same time then look no further than the Atlantean Flyer. As the longest waterpark zipline circuit in the Middle East, stretching 65 feet above Aquaventure Waterpark, the Atlantean Flyer offers a thrilling treetop view of the waterpark, Aquaventure beach and The Palm Island below.

6. The Leap of Faith and Shark Attack are the most popular rides at Neptune’s Tower

The Tower of Neptune houses the heart-racing ‘The Leap of Faith’, a ride that is tried by nearly 600,000 guests every single year. The adrenaline-pumping ride plummets you through a nine-story-tall mega slide in a near-vertical fashion in five seconds, into a clear Perspex tunnel that has Cownose rays and sharks swimming around it.

The Shark Attack begins 13 metres up the Ziggurat and spins riders on one- or two-person inner tubes into the blackness of the tower’s mysterious core. Riders emerge through the shark-filled lagoon at a leisurely ‘shark-viewing’ pace.

7. The Torrent is a wave river of 700 metres

A water-tubing experience the whole family can enjoy, the Torrent offers plenty of tidal swells and surges in an exciting river ride that courses through the tropical waterscape of Atlantis. A wave generator simulates a wave surge that is capable of swells reaching over 1 metre high at over 94,000 litres per minute that propels riders in their inner tubes along the course of the river on the wave crests.
