This was my eighth visit to Atlantis Aquaventure and, while there is nothing really new here, it's still a pretty cool waterpark. All the slides were open except for the Challenger slide. The conveyor belt up to the top of the Power Tower was also closed, as it was two years ago, and I don't think it's ever open now. The theming is still one of the biggest pluses here. Lines were quite long at times since apparently most of the hotels that "feed" Aquaventure were at or near capacity, but the slides tend to dispatch quickly.
As before, Aquaventure consists of two areas, the Mayan Temple and the Power Tower, with the mile-long Rapids River (or "Current") in part running in-between. There are several pools (although not really 14, as advertised) ranging from the high-energy Mayan Temple Pool to the quieter, iconic Royal Baths pool. For adults and kids 48" tall and over, there are four body-slides and four tube-slides, and the Rspids River certainly adds to the experience. My favorite slides are the Serpent tube-slide in the Mayan Temple (float through a shark tank!) and The Falls over on the Power Tower, but all three of the tube-slides on the Power Tower are great. The Leap of Faith, Atlantis' iconic body slide through the shark-tank, is somewhat overrated since it only lasts about 5 seconds and if you see a shark, you were VERY lucky. Still, as with all the slides, it should be experienced at least once.
