Treat the whole family to a day of thrills at Aquaventure. Dominating a small island in the Bahamas, the 57 hectare (141 acre) water park offers rides and attractions, including six-story slides and a 60-foot tunnel drop. Relax by a lagoon as the kids burn off energy on one of the many winding water slides or river rides, or grab a meal at one of several on-site eateries. Be prepared to wait in long queues for popular rides. Using our world travel planner, Nassau attractions like Aquaventure can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
This is a nice way to see the Atlantis Aquarium. It is kind of pricey to see the Aquarium, however you can also walk around the resort which was OK. Not sure if it is worth the price of admission. more »
This is a Disney type adventure! Grandchildren rode all of the slides....numerous times! The lines were long at the most popular rides, but they did not seem to mind! Lots of screaming “on the way dow... more »
Slides and rapid river rock, food not so much The slides are generally great. At times you will have long lines. Especially the "Leap of Faith" slide sees at time significant lines. The "Leap of Faith" is overrated in my personal opinion. The best slide is the "Abyss". "The Surge" is my favorite tube slide. If you want to leave some of the daily cruise ship crowd behind - they tend to get stuck at the Mayan Temple pool by the "Leap of Faith", go over to the "Power Tower". Many times "The Abyss" and "Surge" have short lines, especially until around 11am. By that time the cruise ship crowd has done the "Leap of Faith". Two areas where you can usually find chairs and shade are for one next to the rapid river entrance #1.Go by the kids pool on the hotel side and cross the bridge to get there. The other nice area is the pool next to "cove beach". Cove beach is a really nice beach. Avoid the Atlantis beach unless you want to rent a wave rider. Now, food is generally of the American fast food variety. It is way overpriced but unless you want to leave the park, it is your only option. At times there are long lines for food. Again, the further you are away from the cruise ship crowd at the Mayan Temple, the better usually things are. Mondays are generally cruise ship free. Make sure you include a Monday as a full day when you visit the Atlantis water park. Last but not least, the fish at the large aquarium get fed at every day at 8am and 3pm except for Mondays. Make sure you are outside on top when the feeding frenzy is on. Pretty cool to see the Manta getting fed. Overall, food two stars but slides are 5 stars. Given that you go there for the slides and the rapid river, for stars overall.
If you're going to Nassau with kids, you have to be near this place. None of the resorts here accommodate children as well. The oceanside beach is close by and fantastic. Great way to work off the calories too.
