WhiteWater delivers waves of excitement to Atlantis The Palm

November 30, 2013

WhiteWater has been promoting its newest innovation - a heart pumping, six waterslide complex overflowing with features not seen anywhere else in the world which has opened to rave reviews at the Aquaventure waterpark at Dubai's Atlantis The Palm.

Anchored by a 40 metre tower, the complex includes a number of world's firsts including two AquaTubes which fly through the world's largest 9 metre diameter waterslide, and the Anaconda, offering a spectacular waterslide within a waterslide experience, known as the flume-thru-flume technology. Additionally, the world's first zipline integrated into a waterslide tower delivers a new level of exhilaration as riders fly through on two-lane, two-way zip lines spanning three towers. Adding to the excitement with more firsts to the Middle East, a Family Boomerango and two dueling AquaLoops offer adventure seekers challenges and thrills as they test the limits of their courage.

Speaking at the recent opening, WhiteWater's Chief Operating Officer Michael Heaven commented "we are proud to have been selected and challenged by Atlantis The Palm to deliver yet another record breaker for their waterpark expansion and are thrilled with the result. The excellent feedback and excitement from guests is nearly as exhilarating as the experience itself!"

This major expansion joins other WhiteWater attractions at Aquaventure Waterpark including four Master Blaster® water coasters, a custom themed AquaPlay interactive play structure, and the highly-popular Leap of Faith waterslide offering an unforgettable drop through a live shark marine exhibit.

Atlantis, The Palm is located at the centre of the crescent of The Palm in Dubai.

Opened in September 2008, the unique ocean-themed resort features a variety of marine and entertainment attractions, as well as 17 hectares of waterscape amusement at Aquaventure Waterpark, all within a 46 hectare site. It is home to one of the largest open-air marine habitats in the world, with over 65,000 marine animals in lagoons and displays including The Lost Chambers Aquarium, a maze of underwater corridors and passageways providing a journey through ancient Atlantis.

Aquaventure features 18 million litres of fresh water used to power thrilling waterslides, a 2.3 kilometre river ride with tidal waves and pools, water rapids and white water chargers. Dolphin Bay, the unparalleled dolphin conservation and education habitat, was created to provide guests a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn more about one of nature's most graceful mammals.

Atlantis, The Palm is also known as the culinary destination in the region with a collection of world-renowned restaurants including Nobu, Ronda Locatelli and Rostang. The resort boasts an impressive collection of luxury boutiques and shops as well as extensive meeting and convention facilities.
