Best Time to Visit

The best time to visit Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark is early in the morning, after 9.45 am, as soon as it opens. 

Early mornings are better because the weather is pleasant and it is less crowded. We recommend you stay at the Atlantis Resort and arrive as soon as the waterpark’s gate opens.

Expect a rush in the afternoon, as most visitors arrive then. Weekends are also quite busy.

You must, however, avoid the afternoon, especially during the summer months from June to August, as it will be really hot.

The best months to visit are from October to April.

Here is a snapshot of the best time of the day, week and year.

How Long Does it Take?

You can quickly rush through all the rides within two to three hours during non-rush hours on weekdays.

However, it will be pretty hectic, and you won’t be able to do justice to the world’s largest aqua park.

If you are visiting during rush hours or holidays and don’t want to waste time, you can upgrade your entry ticket to the AquaXpress pass.

This will give you priority entry into popular rides like Neptune and Poseidon Towers, even when there’s a huge lineup.

You can upgrade your online ticket simply by contacting the helpdesk when entering the waterpark premises.


Plan With an Itinerary

Morning (10 am to 12 pm):

  • Arrive at the waterpark gates as soon as they open (around 10 am). This will allow you to beat the crowds and enjoy shorter lines for the rides.
  • Start your day with adrenaline-pumping rides, such as the Tower of Neptune, Poseidon’s Revenge, and Aquaconda.

Afternoon (12 pm to 4 pm):

  • After the morning’s thrills, take a break and relax by the lazy river or one of the many pools. 
  • Aquaventure Dubai has a variety of restaurants and cafes where you can grab a bite to eat.
  • After lunch, try the wave rider, the rapids ride, or the children’s play area.

Evening (4 pm till sunset):

  • As the sun starts to set, head to the beach for some relaxation and beautiful views.

  • Take Advantage of Shows and Entertainment: While you are waiting in line, you can catch one of the many shows or entertainment offerings throughout the park. This can help make the wait entertaining.
  • Download the Aquaventure App: The Aquaventure app provides real-time wait times for all of the rides. This can help you plan your day and avoid the longest lines.
  • Go During the Off-Season: If possible, visit Aquaventure during the off-season (fall and spring). The crowds will be fewer, and wait times will be shorter.
