Nearly Vertical Drop

This near-vertical water slide plunges you from a staggering height of approximately 30 meters (98 feet).

Brace yourself for a freefall sensation as you accelerate to speeds of up to 40 miles per hour (60 kilometers per hour) in just a few seconds.

Face-to-Face with Sharks

The most exhilarating twist? The translucent acrylic tube you hurtle through winds its way through a lagoon teeming with sharks and other fascinating marine life.

You will feel a rush of adrenaline as you zip past these magnificent creatures, offering a unique underwater perspective.

Capture the Moment

While you can’t take your own camera on the ride, Aquaventure offers a photo capture service.

Immortalize your fearless expression (or maybe your surprised scream) as you plummet down the Leap of Faith. It’s a fantastic souvenir to remember your exhilarating experience.

Solo Ride or Friendly Challenge?

The Leap of Faith is a solo adventure, allowing you to focus entirely on the exhilarating experience.

However, if you are visiting with friends, you can race each other down separate Leap of Faith slides located side-by-side.

Flume System

The Leap of Faith utilizes a flume system, a meticulously designed water channel that optimizes water flow and rider experience. 

This hidden tech ensures a smooth, uninterrupted descent, maximizing the thrill without any unwanted bumps.

Height and Age Restriction

This restriction is in place for safety reasons.

Your kid must be at least 1.2 meters (48 inches) tall to ride the Leap of Faith. 

There isn’t a specific age requirement, but due to the thrill and height of the ride, it’s recommended for older kids and adults. 

Pro Tip: Go through the restrictions to prepare for the Leap of Faith ride and other waterslides of Atlantis Aquaventure!

Safety Measures

  • Riders must be at least 48 inches (1.2 meters) tall to participate. This ensures riders are large enough to fit securely in the tube.
  • If you are suffering from heart conditions, back problems, or a fear of heights, then don’t ride this.
  • Lifeguards are stationed at the pool where riders exit the Leap of Faith. They are there to assist you and ensure a safe exit from the water.
  • The pool at the ride’s bottom is designed to create a controlled splash landing, minimizing the risk of injury.
  • The Leap of Faith undergoes regular inspections and maintenance to ensure all systems are functioning correctly.
