A Dubai water park is set to become one of the biggest in the world – by installing a 112ft tower that will house 12 slides.
Atlantis Aquaventure water park at Palm Island already has 20 rides and rivers spread across 17 hectares. The new attractions, when they’re finished in the summer of 2020, will expand the park by 30 per cent.
It is promised that the new rides will ‘entertain everyone from little daredevils to water park veterans’.

The tower will be called ‘Trident Tower’ and will be the third of its kind to open at the water park.
One of its new slides will be the Mammoth Blast, which is described as a ‘449-metre family adventure water coaster that delivers uncompromising force at unprecedented speeds’.
Riders will enjoy the slide on rafts and will experience back-to-back curves, drops and uphill climbs powered by water propulsion technology.
Another ride is the dueling Pipeline Blast/Flying Saucer 20 hybrid ride.
Driven by ‘patented sequential jets’, this high-speed slide rockets dueling guests through gravity-defying turns and around wide-open saucer features at maximum velocity.
While the new Rally Racer 32 slide will allow guests to race each other to the bottom on neighbouring lanes.
The 112ft Trident Tower will feature 12 new water slides. It is promised that the new rides will ‘entertain everyone from little daredevils to water park veterans’
There will also be an updated version of the Leap of Faith slide, comprising two lanes rather than one with each dropping the guest more than 34 metres (111ft) at stomach-churning speeds.
The expanded section of the water park will also feature a new children’s area, with highlights including four mini versions of adult rides.
Young ones will also be able to traverse the new Kidz Tornado 24 and the Kidz Bowl 14 slides.

Tim Kelly, executive vice president and managing director at Atlantis The Palm and The Royal Atlantis, said: ‘At Atlantis we endeavour to deliver amazing experiences and everlasting memories to all of our guests and so enhancing the Atlantis Aquaventure offering is the natural next step in providing the best experience possible.
‘We have carefully curated each attraction to ensure that we deliver first-of-its-kind ride technology for children, families and thrill-seekers alike.
‘Trident Tower and its record-breaking slides will be a thrilling addition to the Atlantis experience, and we look forward to the unveiling in summer 2020.’
