Beautiful New Slide Tower Now Open at Atlantis The Palm

WhiteWater is proud to be showing off the enormous tower of slides that it has created for Atlantis - The Palm, located in Dubai.  Seen in the photo above from afar, the complex is known as the Tower of Poseidon and stands an impressive 131 feet above the beautiful Atlantis resort.  The expansion represents a significant increase in the amount of water attractions offered as part of Atlantis' Aquaventure Waterpark.

The slides that make up the attractions on the Tower of Poseidon were manufactured by WhiteWater, and represent some of the latest thrilling attractions they offer.  The Aquaconda is the world's largest diameter waterslide at 30 feet, and actually has two body slides (called Slitherine) that pass through the its flume.

The tower is also the starting point for other slides, such as a massive Family Boomerango that is called Zoomerango at Atlantis.  The family sized rafts plunge down a steep drop and up the side of a half pipe giving riders the feeling of zero gravity all the while.  There are also a pair of dueling AquaLoops called Poseidon's Revenge that start with a trip door plunge.

On hand for the grand opening, WhiteWater’s COO, Michael Heaven commented on the expansion, “We are proud to have been selected and challenged by Atlantis The Palm to deliver yet another record breaker for their waterpark expansion and are thrilled with the result.  The excellent feedback and excitement from guests is nearly as exhilarating as the experience itself!”
