Atlantis opens at Palm Jumeirah

Aquaventure, one part of the Atlantis The Palm, the flagship resort of the revolutionary Palm Jumeirah, Dubai, opened its doors on Wednesday, September 24th 2008.
The resort is surrounded by marine lagoons and will be home to more than 65,000 marine animals.

The water playground includes extraordinary rides with cascades, tidal waves and rapids.
The Mesopotamian-styled Ziggurat temple in Atlantis reaches over 30 metres into the sky and features seven heart-pumping water slides; two of which catapult riders through shark-filled lagoons.
The much anticipated opening of Dubai's first integrated entertainment resort is set to enhance Dubai's incredible tourism proposition.
Each of the 1,539 guestrooms and suites in the Royal Towers feature private balconies and views over the Gulf or The Palm Jumeirah.

Water adventures, salt and fresh water attractions and an open-air marine habitat are the focal points of the resort for both guests and visitors.
The resort has been modelled on the already world famous Atlantis resort in the Bahamas.
