Do you love water parks, especially the ones with huge water rides? Well, then you must visit Dubai’s Atlantis Aquaventure. Why? Well, why not?! But we are giving you solid reasons to visit ASAP!

Well, it has a new Guinness World Record to its name. With 50 water slides, Dubai’s Atlantis Aquaventure has set a new Guinness World Record for the most water slides in a water park. It went under thorough scrutiny before being awarded the title.

Dubai’s Atlantis Aquaventure

Atlantis Aquaventure is a 22.5-hectare resort with three themed towers and a mile of shoreline. Each park slide that was eligible for the award underwent testing, documentation, and video recording for the adjudicators to review.

Alwaleed Osman, official adjudicator at Guinness World Records said that the best part about Dubai is that it competes with itself. He said that Dubai is very much determined on maintaining its global position as a leading entertainment provider. The previous Guinness Book of records titleholder was home to 41 slides.

Alwaleed also termed Dubai’s Atlantis Aquaventure as ‘officially Amazing’. Sascha Triemer, vice president of marine and water park at Atlantis Dubai, and ten of the most experienced lifeguards from Atlantis Aquaventure were also present to get the official Guinness World Records certificate.

Home To 50 Amazing Slides

The rides include Odyssey of Terror, the largest water slide in the world, which has a final plunge where visitors feel almost weightless as they experience freefalling down a curved wall. The riders are pushed 449 metres through a series of pitch-black tunnels as it mixes speed, power, and a rafting adventure.

Zoomerango has vertical zooms, including a 14-metre-high vertical wall, and mega-drop plummets. The park is also home to the River Rapids and Raging Rapids, which provide the typical lazy river experience with an adrenaline rush. The Executive Vice President and managing director, Atlantis Resorts and Residences, Timothy Kelly gave the credit to their team of more than 500 lifeguards.
