Who Manufactures The Waterslides At Atlantis Bahamas/Dubai


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what company manufactures the waterslides for the Atlantis Resort Paradise Island, Bahamas & Atlantis The Palm Dubai?

 

Whitewater features the Mayan Temple's Leap of Faith and Challenger Slides on their website, but that was it. The Mayan Temple still has two other slides (Jungle Slide & Serpent Slide).

 

There is also another newer slide building called the Power Tower. It consists of 2 water coasters (The Surge, The Falls, and The Drop). It also has a high speed freefall body slide called The Abyss, which is a 50 ft almost verticle drop in pitch black, followed by a smalled bunny drop, into an underground pool in a cavern.

 

I was also curious who manufactured the slides at the Dubai property, including:

 

- Leap of Faith

- Shark Attack

- Shamal

- Zinger

- The Plunge

- The Surge

 

Does anyone know about those?

 

Also, if anyone has visited both Atlantis Resort's, which water park do you prefer better, Bahamas, or Dubai and why?

 

Last question:

 

Is the Leap of Faith in Dubai taller then the one in the Bahamas? I've heard rumors it is.

 

If anyone can answer these questions, I will be really happy, because I have always wondered if those were ProSlide or WhiteWater.

Both Atlantis locations are supplied entirely by White Water West. I personally think that they are just about the same in terms of the water park, but the Dubai hotel is more luxurious.

 

When you say "Entirely", does that include the slides not mentioned on White Water West's website? Like Abyss at the Bahamas and all of the water coasters in both the Bahamas and Dubai.

 

Also, I agree the the Dubai hotel is extremely nice, but the Cove and Reef towers in the Bahams are amazing.

Every slide that is at both locations is manufactured by White Water West. White Water West heavily markets its Master Blaster water coasters and their implementation at both Atlantis locations. Basically, if it is at Atlantis, it came from White Water, which is a shame, because I am a major ProSlide fanboy.

What about The Abyss body slide in the Power Tower in the Bahamas property? It is a 50 ft near vertical drop in the dark from the top of the Power Tower. Is that White Water West too? I love that slide.

Based on my visits and Atlantis's website, there is no such slide. The Abyss is a multi-person raft slide also, not a body slide.

 

There IS a slide called The Abyss in the Bahamas property and it is a body slide. There are even videos of it on YouTube. Atlantis posted different pictures of different slides on their website. Not all of the photos on the website are of the correct slide. The Surge, The Falls, and The Drop are the water coasters, and the Abyss is the body slide. If you read the describtion of The Abyss on the Atlantis Bahamas website , it will tell you.

 

The Abyss body slide starts from the very top level of the Power Tower, where The Surge slide starts. The entrance to the slide is in a coffin like looking box in the middle of the top level. It falls 50 ft in the dark, comes out under a bridge, and then dips down again underground. To exit the slide, you have to walk back up to pool level.

 

If the entire Atlantis Bahamas and Dubai is White Water West, then I am assuming that The Abyss is too, and it's an amazing slide.

Trust me, the abyss exists.. I couldn't forget such an unexpectedly awesome waterslide if I tried!

 

 

I know. It's an amazing slide. The attention to detail in the theming of the slide is incredible. I was a little nervous the first time I did The Abyss, because the entrance of the slide looks like a coffin like box.

 

I didn't expect a 50 ft almost vertical drop in pitch black, and the small bunny dip at the end caught be off guard too, The Abyss is definately a one of a kind body slide.

The Abyss is the only body slide in the Power Tower. The other 3 slides in the Power Tower (The Drop, The Falls, & The Surge) are all water coasters.

 

The Mayan Temple however, is more focused on body slides, EX. Leap of Faith, Challenger Slides, & Jungle Slide.

 

If you look on the Atlantis Bahamas website, you will find a description of The Abyss. It DOES exist, and it IS a body slide.

^ Oh, sorry. I thought you were talking about the ride model called the Abyss from White Water West. The Abyss at Atlantis is just your standard body speed slide. Nothing more than that.

 

 

Yes, it is a body slide. It's a 50 ft near vertical drop in pitch black and it is AMAZING!

 

I can understand the confusion you had between The Abyss body slide at Atlantis in the Bahamas, and the model slide Abyss by White Water West.

 

Have you ever ridden The Abyss at Atlantis? It's inredible, the theming is amazing, and it's a lot of fun.

I have ridden the Abyss, but personally, I find that all speed slides are pretty much the same to me. With Disney, it's about 50/50. Blizzard Beach is almost entirely ProSlide (yay!). Typhoon Lagoon has a pretty even mix of ProSlide and White Water products.

 

 

Ok. Blizzard Beach looks amazing. Typhoon Lagoon also looks really awesome. I've never been to a Disney waterpark, but I would love to, because they all look really awesome.
