First week of August with kids and waterparks

Hi Guys,

We are going for Dubai first week of August with our 2 kids. We have 6 days and want to visit Aquaventure at the Atlantis hotel.

My Q is if it is to hot and warm to visit the waterpark in beginning August? I am affraid to pay a huge amount in entracne ticket and it is to hot to enjoy it? How is the cost for lunch in there?

Is Wild Wadi evt. more friendly in top summer?

Being in the water is the best way to deal with the heat.

Wild Wadi chills the water and sprays chilled water on to the paths so seems a better option. If you go to Atlantis you will need to wear beach shoes or similar and note that you can't wear flips flops on the slides.

Wild Wadi is also better and has more facilities for younger children

The fast food places in the waterparks are more expensive than eating outside in a fast food place but once you are inside they are your only choice.

I would avoid visiting in Aug especially with children. Too hot and humid.

Vasu

Thousands of people visit in August and they are all fine, in fact many go back year after year at that time.

The OP has already booked their holiday so can't avoid visiting

Thanks Latimer,

I have ordered Beach shoes for us.

Ad. "Being in the water is the best way to deal with the heat" - The sun is more critical when u are in the Water. We will buy waterproff sun lotion.

What can we else do? Sun hats to the kids and sun glasses? But they cant be used to the slides? What abt water-proof T-shirts or Whole dresses?

Hi again, We are back. Had a grat trip, but the Atlantis was rather disapointing. Great to explore, but not so many attractions as expected and it was very expenssive. You pay rather expenssive tickets and have to poay additional for locker, spec. attactions etc. I will instead suggest the cheaper and easier with transportation, Wadi Wadi. The taxifare to Atlantis is rather expenssive.
