When it comes to water parks in Dubai, it would be remiss of us not to mention the largest and brightest of the bunch– the Atlantis’s Aquaventure Water Park, boasting over 105 slides and experiences for guaranteed family fun. 

Located at Atlantis, The Palm, Aquaventure is most famed for being a record holder in the Guinness World Records for the most water slides in a water park!

The park’s rides can accommodate both individuals and groups– try zooming down the Aquaconda or the Shockwave, built especially as family water coasters.

Prefer to go down it solo or have something to prove? Thrill seekers should definitely try going down the Leap of Faith– and if that’s not enough, its scarier sister, Blackout. 

Finally, for the competitive soul in all of us, the Hydra Racer guarantees some good, competitive fun– be the first to reach the bottom and win the Trident! 

Pro Tip:

If you have a pair of them, definitely bring some water shoes! You can wear them on the water slides, plus they’ll keep your feet safe from the summer heat while you walk around the huge premises of the park!

Tucked away in the residential suburb of the Dubai Hills Estate, Dubai Hills’ own park, located in the very heart of the estate, features a splash park: especially great for families! 

Protected from the sun with refreshing water, the Splash Park features a good amount of slides and tunnels, along with an artificial beach to lounge around and relax on. 

Let the kids brave the twists and turns of the slides while dodging the spray of water from the roundabout. No need to worry about sunburn either as there’s adequate shelter thanks to the sail shade!

But before going in, make sure to warn any kids about the large bucket hanging above the whole park– or don’t, and watch them get a splashing surprise. 

The Splash Park is only one attraction of the Dubai Hills Park, but it is definitely one of the best for beating the heat. Make sure to visit if you’re ever in the area! 

Pro Tip:

Entrance to either the Skate Park or the Splash Park comes with its own complementary popcorn– handy, huh? Do take note that getting the ticket for entrance to both only comes with popcorn for one, though!
