Aquaventure Water Park at Atlantis The Palm

Let's kick things off with arguably one of the best water parks in Dubai. Head to the grand Atlantis The Palm, and submerge yourself in pure, unadulterated fun. And water - lots of brilliant, flowing water.

Built for kids and bigger kids alike, Aquaventure Water Park mixes it up with plenty of splashtastic fun while also providing plenty of places to relax and enjoy the weather. When you're vacationing in a hot desert oasis like Dubai, you'll need every opportunity to cool down!

But what makes Aquaventure Waterpark at Atlantis The Palm one of the best waterparks in Dubai? Let's explore some of its highlights.

Leap of Faith

Imagine plunging down a nine-story slide through a transparent tube, all while you're surrounded by sharks and rays. That is Leap of Faith, and that's why it's awesome.

Aquaconda

Given the snake-like nature of this beast, the name does it justice. This windy slide hurls you through the dark before you drop into the world's largest fiberglass tube.

Poseidon's Revenge

Draw the ire of the great sea god, and feel his wrath as you plummet down at 60mph. Not for the faint of heart, but an adrenaline-fuelled ride for you daring sorts

The Rapids

Do your best River Wild impression as you hold on for dear life in this white knuckle, near 2-kilometer river ride.

Splasher's Children's Play Area

This kids-only play area has tons of mini slides, climbing frames, and even tipping buckets, so they won't miss out on all the fun.

Aquaventure Beach

Yes, this waterpark even has its own freaking beach. The perfect place to relax when you need a break from all the splashing.

Yas Waterworld

Located on the magical, mystical Yas Island, you'll find another of the best water parks in Dubai! Pretty much anywhere you turn, you'll run into a water park. And, with over 40 amazing rides, Yas Waterworld is well worth a visit.

Appealing to all ages, sizes, and bravery levels, it's the perfect summer pitstop for flushed faces. Let's talk about its best bits.

Bandit Bomber

This brilliant ride is a suspended rollercoaster that darts, dives, and bombs around the park while inundating you with water, lasers, and other sensory delights.

Liwa Loop

Dubai sure love their plummeting rides! Liwa Loop combines the sheer drop with winding tubes and dumps you out with a splash. This one's for the brave.

Sebag

Go head-to-head with five other sliders as you race down this six-laner and see if you're aerodynamic enough to clinch first place.

Falcons Falaj

From a six-laner to a six-seater, this loopy ride will push you and five friends to the limit. Scream if you want, no one will judge you.

Al Raha River

Take your foot off the gas at this lazy river ride, which calmly carries you along beautiful streams and through dazzling caverns.

Cinesplash

If your idea of fun is a flooded cinema, you'll love Cinesplash. As the water rises to your knees, enjoy the 5D cinematic experience, which includes waterfalls, moving seats, and water explosions. Unmissable, in our book.

LEGOLAND® Water Park

While many of the best water parks in Dubai are child-friendly, LEGOLAND® Water Park is the only one that caters to them specifically. But just because it puts kids first doesn't mean older, bigger kids can't get in on the fun.

With 20 LEGO®-themed rides featuring some recognizable faces, your kids will love it. And hey, maybe you will too. So let's see what they'll get up to.

Build-A-Boat

Challenge your kids to a boat-off, and see who can build the most impressive vessel. And let them win, yeah? Unless you're that type of parent.

LEGO® Slide Racers

Board your mat, and bomb your way down this white knuckle ride. Thrills, chills, and hopefully, no spills await you.

Joker Soaker

Face LEGO® Batman's arch nemesis as you splash and crash around his watery playground.

Splash Out

Another big drop ride, this one's a little more kid-friendly. But don't get it twisted - they still need to be brave to take the plunge!

Red Rush

Team up with the fam and steer your raft along the curving track.

Twin Chasers

Compete against one another as you race to the bottom of this twisting, spinning ride.

Splash N Swirl

Team up or go it alone on this swirling tube ride.

DUPLO® toddler play area

Perfect for the little little ones, they'll enjoy the slides, animals, water features, and other activities geared towards their wonder-filled minds.

Wild Wadi Waterpark

At the stunning Jumeirah Beach Hotel, you'll find this must-visit, Arabian-themed water park. Fun for the whole family, it caters to both young and old alike.

Highlights include Jumeirah Sceirah, a nearly 400ft long tandem slide, where you and your sliding partner will reach speeds of up to 49mph! Breakers Bay is the biggest wave pool in the United Arab Emirates - do you have the will and determination to survive?

Laguna Water Park

Featuring four zones of fun, Laguna Water Park has it all. With each one dedicated to splashing, sliding, surfing, and relaxing, no matter what you're in the mood for, you'll find it there.

Enjoy a relaxing float down the lazy river, or dare yourself to ride the thrilling slides - it's entirely up to you.

Though the park is arguably more about beach vibes than thrill rides, we cannot leave without mentioning the WaveOz 180 Flowrider, the world's first 180-degree surf machine. It has to be seen to believed, and ridden to be respected.
