Dubai will soon be home to one of the world's biggest waterparks as Atlantis Aquaventure announces plans for an expansion that will see the addition of a third, 34-metre tall tower at the park that will include 12 thrilling new rides in summer of 2020.

Aquaventure currently boasts more than 20 rides and rivers spread across 17 hectares at Palm Island. The addition of the Trident Tower will bring in signature world-class ProSlide rides including the world's longest all-new ProSlide MammothBlast, a 449-metre family adventure water coaster that delivers uncompromising force at unprecedented speeds. Rafts rocket through winding channels, experiencing a breathtaking series of back-to-back curves, drops and uphill climbs powered by patented Blast water propulsion technology.

Guests can also test their nerve on the Middle East's first-ever ProSlide Duelling Pipeline Blast/Flying Saucer 20 hybrid ride. Driven by patented sequential jets, this high-speed ride rockets duelling guests through gravity-defying turns and around wide-open saucer features at maximum velocity.

A new kids' area will also complement the existing Splasher's Island family zone, with highlights including four mini versions of classic ProSlide adult rides, including a mega fun competitive mat racer featuring two lanes of head-first downhill fun.

Tim Kelly, managing director, Atlantis the Palm, said: "At Atlantis we endeavour to deliver amazing experiences and everlasting memories to all of our guests and so enhancing the Atlantis Aquaventure offering is the natural next step in providing the best experience possible. We have carefully curated each attraction to ensure that we deliver first-of-its-kind ride technology for children, families and thrill-seekers alike. Trident Tower and its record-breaking slides will be a thrilling addition to the Atlantis experience, and we look forward to the unveiling in summer 2020."

Aquaventure's ambitious expansion project in 2020 comes as Atlantis plans the launch of the Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences set to open in quarter three of 2020.
