“Not as good as Wild Wadi”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

After reading poor reviews of Aquaventure we were not going to visit and instead we returned, as always, to Wild Wadi but then we decided to have a second water park day so went to Aquaventure after all and wished we had instead had a second at Widl Wadi.

Apart form the good lazy river with rapids the rides are poor and crowded. Also because of the hotels location on the end of the palm it is very hot and although the sunbeds all have canopies little has been done to provide any proper shade.

The one good thing that came out of the day trip was that it answered our questions as to whether we would want to stay at Atlantis Hotel in the future, the answer to that is no, the whole place seemed very badly planned, not user firendly and not as interestng as all of the media hype suggests, there are many much better hotels in Dubai. The food here is expensive and poor (Disney style fast food on the whole)

If you are choosing bewteen a day at Wild Wadi and a day at Aquaventure go for Wild Wadi!!

“Lots to do....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

This waterpark in my opinion is slightly better then wild wadi,but to my knowledge does not have ladies nights which is the plus point wild wadi has to its advantage, I think this park has more to do, the kids loved the big house filled with water and slides. Worth visiting.
