Aquaventure waterpark in Dubai – what should you know about this attraction?
But if you think that would be the end of it, then welcome to this new era, where Aquaventure is more ambitious than ever. Besides the existing jaw-dropping towers namely, the Tower of Poseidon and the Tower of Neptune, there is the third much-awaited tower that was installed in the coming year.
Trident Tower – Aquaventure Park’s Top Attraction
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! The New children’s area will be crafted with four mini versions of adult rides, including the new Kidz Tornado 24 and the Kidz Bowl 14 slides. However, there will be more for everyone irrespective of 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-meter 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 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 slide at 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 the 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.
