Expanded Atlantis Aquaventure Dubai waterpark features ProSlide ride innovations

Expanded Atlantis Aquaventure Dubai waterpark features ProSlide ride innovations
March 12, 2021

Newly completed additions at the Atlantis Aquaventure waterpark on Palm Jumeirah in Dubai represent what its owners say is the “biggest waterpark expansion in history” with attractions covering 5.5 hectares being added to the already 17-hectare site.

The massive ‘Phase 3’ extension at the Middle East’s largest waterpark sees it now offer 79 rides, including the world’s longest water slide which takes guests down a 450-metre fall. In addition, Atlantis Aquaventure is home to 26 ‘marine experiences’, water sport activities and 26 food and beverage outlets.

ProSlide Technology Inc. installed 17 water rides for the record-breaking expansion, including two state-of-the-art water park towers with multiple RallyRACERTM mat racers, a new WaterKINGDOM featuring the world’s first KidzADVENTURE TowerTM, and multiple ProSlide Water Coasters, including the world’s longest family rafting Water Coaster.

Commenting on the work, Philip Baker, ProSlide’s Vice President - Business Development for the MENA region, advised “Atlantis Aquaventure sets a new waterpark standard for Dubai, the Middle East, and the world (and) we are grateful for the opportunity to once again work with Atlantis and, together with the project team of global industry professionals, help them to realise their amazing vision for this extremely significant expansion project.

Trident Tower - World-Record Water Ride Complex
Towering over Atlantis Aquaventure Dubai is the park’s anchor attraction, the awe-inspiring Trident Tower. At 48-meters tall with 12 high-performance water rides, the breathtaking structure commands the skyline of this world-leading water park. Anchoring the Tower is the world’s longest family rafting Water Coaster and first MammothBLAST™ Water Coaster - Shockwave. This is a thrilling, family adventure water ride design that combines ProSlide’s next-generation BLAST water propulsion, FlyingSAUCER® high-speed turns, and the PowerRIVERTM rafting river channel.

Trident Tower also features the 2019 IAAPA IMPACT Award-winning Dueling PIPElineBLAST®/FlyingSAUCER® 20, otherwise known as Medusa’s Lair.

Also making its debut in the EMEA region is ProSlide’s RallyRACER®, the latest evolution of the mat racer. Dubbed ‘Hydra Racers’ at Aquaventure, the RallyRACER® features ProSlide’s patented RallyPOINTS which are sections of u-shaped flume with low divider walls that allow riders to see and hear their competitors at strategic points during the race.

The innovation continues as Trident Tower boasts even more record-holders and “firsts” in the region, including the world’s tallest Double TornadoWAVE® called ‘Odyssey of Terror’ and the EMEA’s tallest FreeFALL speed slide dubbed ‘Blackout’.

Splashers Cove - World’s First KidzADVENTURE Tower
Splashers Cove is an oasis for families anchored by a ProSlide WaterKINGDOM with the world’s first KidzADVENTURE Tower (KAT). Inspired by the iconic Trident Tower, Splashers Cove features modern architecture and smaller versions of award-winning ProSlide water rides. Innovated specifically for kids and families, the KAT creates unique, graduated ride experiences for the younger guests to gain the experience and confidence to conquer Trident Tower.

Splashers Cove is the perfect introduction for future thrill seekers as they race their friends and family on the world’s first KIDZ RallyRACER. With an abundance of junior water rides, Splasher’s Cove (and the KIDZ Zone Splashers Lagoon) is a water park within a water park and the perfect attraction for children and families.

Pleased with ProSlide’s work, Sascha Triemer, Vice President - Marine and Waterpark at Atlantis, Dubai, added “the water rides ProSlide installed are second-to-none and are the perfect complement for our vision for Atlantis to be among the world’s best water parks.

“Their technology, innovation, and creative design have brought Atlantis to a completely new and higher level in the destination industry that could not have been achieved with any other water ride manufacturer.”

The beach at Atlantis Aquaventure has also been extended. It is now double its former size, at just under 1 kilometre in length.

The new extended waterpark is opening in phases, with the first phase having opened as of 1st March.
