The Power Tower
An awe-inspiring grand centrepiece of Atlantis’ new waterscape offers guests four adrenaline-inducing slides using ‘master blaster’ technology.
Beginning with a staggering 50-foot near vertical drop, this thrilling 14-second, 200ft long body slide through waterfalls and in and out of the Towers darkness ultimately ends in an underground lair of prehistoric alligator gars.
Accessible from the river, this slide will allow guests to journey up the Tower, while still in their inner-tubes, via a water-propelling conveyor, to then spiral down through the Tower’s dark centre
Another inner-tube ride accessed via the upward-pushing conveyor, where riders drop 58 ft to ground level before being propelled up again through twisting tubes.
Starting at the Tower’s top level, this inner tube ride features a camel back drop into a cavern, ending in a flash flood.
