Richmond, BC, Canada — The bar has once again been raised as WhiteWater’s newest innovation, a heart pumping, six waterslide complex overflowing with features not seen anywhere else in the world opened to rave reviews September 17, at Atlantis The Palm, Dubai’s Aquaventure Waterpark.
Anchored by a magnificent 40 metre tower, the complex includes a number of world’s firsts including two AquaTubes™ which fly through the world’s largest 9m (30ft) 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.
On hand for the grand opening, WhiteWater’s COO, Michael Heaven commented on the expansion, “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.
