Aquaventure’s 20 slides take on exciting new dimensions in their After Dark session, making it one of the best pool parties you’re ever likely to get an invite to.
After the sun sets beyond Aquaventure’s home at Atlantis, The Palm Jumeirah, at 8pm on 16th June, the fun will have only just begun. The Waterpark’s slides and rides will open to teens and adults for a special night-time gathering, offering thrills, spills and tasty restaurant grills.
Aquaventure’s After Dark, the park’s late show, premiered for one night back in April this year and it slid down the flume of our aortic valves and straight in to our hearts. More than 3,500 aquatic fanatics took to the rubber rings, amid the thumping disco beats. So if you’re thinking of bobbing along this time round (and you’re taller than 1.20 metres), don’t make like a river and channel lazy, get online and book your tickets now. You’ll also get a cheeky early-bird discount of 25 per cent.
Intrepid ride connoisseurs can also get their low-light adrenalin fix with the world’s largest circumference water ride, Aquaconda. Perhaps you fancy trying the terrifying capsule drop of Poseidon’s Revenge, with the added scare factor of pitch black plunging? See if you can touch the moon with the almost gravity-defying Zoomerang, or come face to face with some of the ocean’s fiercest predators in Shark Attack.
In addition to the park’s slides, water-based attractions, mix of restaurants offering late night feasts and a pumping soundtrack – there will also be the opportunity to win awesome prizes. In for example, ‘The Leap of Faith’s Loudest Scream’ competition. That’s one scary ride in broad daylight, I don’t think screaming is going to be a problem at night. Hold our signature mocktail, we’re going in.
Atlantis, The Palm Jumeirah. From 8pm-12am, 16th June. You must be over 1.2 metres to ride. AED 123 if booked in advance (AED 165 on the door). www.atlantisthepalm.com
