Spread out over an expansive area of 42 acres Aquaventure is a splash centre like no other in the region.  Located within Dubai’s man-made wonder, the Palm Islands, the water park encompasses an impressive 5 million gallons of water within its confines. Offering visitors a  plethora of water based rides including river rides, speed slides, splashers, secluded beaches and kid’s play areas this one-stop splash centre is ideal for both adrenalin junkies and children alike.

The must-experience highlights at the park include The Leap of Faith which is one of the park’s most coveted attractions. Towering above the stunningly landscaped enclave at a height of more than 27 meters the 61m wide Ziggurat ride is a tunnel ride like no other that takes riders through a transparent tube in a lagoon infested with bow mouth, grey reef, white-tip and guitar sharks.
