Atlantis the Palm Dubai

Situated at the center of the crescent of the Palm Jumeirah, the Atlantis water theme park serves as the centerpiece of the resort which includes a luxury hotel, spa, retail entertainment village, and distinctive archeological marine exhibits. The design of the 120 acre project was based on the myth of Atlantis and maintains the iconic design elements of the Paradise Island property, while incorporating traditional Arabic design themes. Features include Aquaventure, the 60-acre water theme park featuring a whitewater adventure river, tidal wave river and water slides that send riders through acrylic tubes submerged in a shark filled lagoon, Dolphin Bay a 12-acre dolphin interaction habitat, The Ambassador Tank and The Lost Chambers – one of the world’s largest salt water aquariums, as well as numerous site pools, lagoons and fountains.
