The year wrapped up with Aquaventure, Atlantis the Palm, winning the title of the best waterpark in the Middle East and the second-best in the world.
But if you think that would be the end of it, then welcome to 2020, where Aquaventure is more ambitious than ever. Besides the existing jaw-dropping towers namely, the Tower of Poseidon and Tower of Neptune, there will be a third tower installed in the coming year.
All you need to know about Trident Tower
The new tower in the making will be called the Trident Tower featuring 12 brand new slides. Trident Tower will stand 112 feet tall, making Aquaventure one of the biggest waterparks in the world. The addition of this new attraction will make the existing Aquaventure grow by 30% which means the waterpark will be bigger and better! New children’s area will be crafted with four mini version of adult rides, including new Kidz Tornado 24 and the Kidz Bowl 14 slides. However, there will be more for everyone irrespective of the age. It’s expanding by 30 percent!
Something to look forward to on the third tower is the slide known as Mammoth Blast, which is described as a ‘449-metre family adventure water coaster that delivers uncompromising force at unprecedented speed.’ If that isn’t thrilling enough, then there are rafts powered by water propulsion technology, that will take you to winding curves, drops and uphill climbs.
The best of technology for the thrills is pretty much the anthem of the new Trident Tower. Water adventurers are keenly looking forward to yet another ride know as the Flying Saucer 20. This hybrid ride unites water and sky with patented sequential jets that slides in high-speed. Guests are going to rocket through gravity-defying turns in a wide-open saucer that reckons at maximum velocity.
Another great addition is a social slide known as Rally Racer 32 that allows guests to race each other to the bottom on neighboring lanes. There will also be an updated version of the Leap of Faith slide, featuring two lanes instead of one with each dropping the rider from 111 feet at a whooping speed.
As of now, Aquaventure boasts 20 rides and rivers spread across 17 hectares, which qualified it to be one of the best waterparks in the world. Now, with the introduction of these new features, you can expect it to be beyond this world.
Expect more from Aquaventure
Besides all these new slides and new tower, the opening of the new expansion will coincide with the opening of The Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences. The property with a 1.5 mile stretch of private beach, 35 restaurants and bars and a beach and nightclub, will make the landmark a happening hub of Dubai.
