A bit of fun is sometimes needed, the water world on the palm island, in the Atlantis hotel, is interesting for a number of reasons. There are many attractions, aquariums, you can also explore the Atlantis hotel and see the palm island.
The water park is very expensive but at the same time very cheap, I will explain myself.
For 330 AED, you will get an adult 1 day ticket to enter the water world where you can enjoy water attractions all day and then visit the Lost Chambers aquariums. With 3, 4 people quite expensive, now are queues everywhere, so you will enjoy some attractions and then you will go on a beautiful beach and that is fun mainly for the children. This is a great place for kids. There are also family tickets with a slight discount. Interesting fact – the all-year ticket costs 990 AED, yes all-year tickets at the price of 3 entries. Therefore, as I wrote above – expensive and at the same time cheap entertainment. To be honest, to have such a park in our country at 990 AED / yearly with a nice beach by the sea, deck chairs in the price included, where there are not too many people? I’d pay right away!
I would like to notice also the fact, that if you tickets for 5, 6 people, the whole year tickets are even cheaper, you can buy the tickets on the official website and so you do not have to wait in a queue.
Tips and personal experience from Dubai Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark:
Take towels, you need to pay for towels here. You pay even for cabins too, if you come with friends, you can pay together for 1 bigger one and put everything in it. Think about ways to avoid paying for the cabins otherwise.
A taxi can take you to the Atlantis hotel comfortably, but on your way back you will need to wait in a long queue, if you leave at the end of the day, it is queue often for an hour. Do not get take a black taxi, they are very expensive. But there is a special metro ride from the palm island, it is more expensive, you need to buy a special ticket. There are also some buses here – but I have no experience in this field.
If you buy tickets on the spot, you can buy tickets with meals. A fairly simple meal, but you’re in the water world. Alternatively, a good restaurant can be found right at the Atlantis Hotel. As you will leave, you can take a walk through a hall with shops and restaurants.
Enjoy adrenaline, for smaller children it will be suitable to go for the wild river. It is slower and sometimes you need to push yourself, but there are a few quicker sections. The main advantages are that you do not need to wait for so long and it is quite a long ride.
There are other paid attractions – diving, swimming with dolphins, you can bring home a photo of yourself with a dolphin too and etc. By the dolphins is a Starbucks cafe where you can have a coffee (looking at the dolphins).

Best Water Parks in Dubai
Dubai Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark is number one for me in Dubai.
There is another water park in Dubai – Wild Wadi Water Park at Jumeirah, I do not have experience with it so far, but it did not seem to offer you as many possibilities. The price is quite similar. In addition, at Atlantis you can also see nice aquariums and you also pay for being on the palm island + the possibility to bath in the sea.
And another water park in Dubai – Legoland Water Park.
