Atlantis Aquaventure: is it worth it? Parque acuatico Atlantis: vale la pena?

aquaparkI’ve been living in UAE for the past 8 years and I’ve never really tried spending so much on trying to make myself experience the “cool” stuff or the “fancy” stuff in life.

So this year, a sudden pop-up caught my attention, a so-called “birthday present” from Atlantis Aquaventure that would actually let me access the aqua park for free. So I signed up for it, I mean, who wouldn’t for something for free right?

Went there, had to park a bit farther than the entrance where there will be a shuttle bus waiting to transfer us back to the aquapark. We had to pay of course for my plus 1, which is AED345.00 and AED50.00 for one small locker. We had fun, on the simple aspects. We enjoyed about 2 slides I guess and perhaps letting ourselves enjoy getting washed out by the water. We also enjoyed looking at the dolphins from afar where you can actually book for an activity with them with as much as AED800.00 (I think) and you’re not allowed to take your own cameras with you because they have their own professional photographers where you will be charged separately. Oh good Lord.  I know.

The same actually goes with the sea lions. So we just enjoyed watching them from outside their isolated swimming area.

Well, I couldn’t really complain cause though we paid for the entrance of my partner, it was more of a buy-1 take-1 kind of deal cause mine was free. But come to think about it, I don’t think I would be paying for AED345.00 entrance fee if I know I would do all the slides they have inside.

Don’t get me wrong, it was an experience of a lifetime, but not on my price range.

Nonetheless, thank you Atlantis Aquaventure for the birthday gift.

 

He estado viviendo en EAU por 8 años ya y nunca me dedique a hacer de mi experiencia la mas divertida o lujosa de mi vida

Entonces este año, repentinamente algo llama mi atención, yo lo llamo regalo de cumpleaños de Atlantis Aquaventure que me dejo disfrutar del parque acuatico gratis. Entonces fui por el, es decir, quien no iria de gratis?

Una vez ahi, tuve que parquear un poco lejos de la entrada donde una buseta espera para llevarnos al parque acuatico. Tuvimos que pagar desde luego por mi acompañante la suma de 345 dirhams y 50 dirhams por un guardaropa pequeño. Nos divertimos en los pequeños detalles. Disfrutamos de dos toboganes y tambien dejandonos mojar en las piscinas. Tambien disfrutamos viendo los Delfines desde lejos donde puedes reservar para estar con ellos, que cuesta alrededor de 800 dirhams creo, y no esta permitido usar tus propias camaras, porque ellos tienen sus propios fotografos, eso es un Pago adicional. Oh Dios ! Yo se

Lo mismo ocurre con los leones marinos, entonces solo disfrutamos viendolos desde afuera de sus estanques.

Bueno no podria quejarme ya que solo Pagamos la entrada de mi acompañante, fue mas un trato de compre uno y obtenga uno gratis, Pero pensemoslo, yo no creo que pagaria 345 dirhams de entrada si se que no voy a utilizar todos los toboganes que tienen.

No me malinterpretes fue una experiencia muy buena, pero no en mi rango de precio.

Muchísimas gracias Atlantis por el regalo de cumpleaños
