Atlantis Dubai recruits Baywatch star David Hasselhoff as head lifeguard
Edited by Travel Weekly


    Aquaventure World in Atlantis Dubai has recruited TV actor, Baywatch star David Hasselhoff, as its new “Head Lifeguard” to kick off its new summer campaign.

    Formally known as the Head of Aquatic Safety, “The Hoff” brings his iconic lifeguard character to the venue, inviting guests to embark on their own legendary experiences. He also makes a cameo in their new campaign video, taking the helm at Aquaventure’s Poseidon’s Revenge ride.

    Hasselhoff is joined by international content creators, adventurer Jay Alvarrez, acrobat Jacob Grégoire, professional globe trotter Paula Díez, extreme surfer girl Maria Riera, and waterpark enthusiast Alex Ojeda. All of whom spent multiple days at Aquaventure World to showcase their adventure.

    Aquaventure World also introduces two new day passes, Super and Adventure, and three new annual passes that offer a wide selection of activities.

    Super and Adventure day passes

    For those seeking a day filled with heart-pounding thrills and exciting experiences, the new Super and Adventure Passes are the perfect option. Guests can choose their own path for the day, combining Aquaventure Waterpark with a visit to The Lost Chambers Aquarium (Super) or a brand-new Dolphin Discovery Presentation (Adventure).

    Annual passes (Bronze, Silver, and Gold Trident)

    Guests can choose which level of legendary they want, guaranteeing unlimited hours of entertainment and unforgettable experiences throughout the year.

    All levels include 365 days of unlimited access to Aquaventure World, the world’s largest waterpark and daily early access (following in-house guest timings).

    Silver Trident builds on this with daily access to The Lost Chambers Aquarium and a host of discounts across extra tickets, experiences, food and beverage and retail.

    Gold Trident is the ultimate annual pass combining all the benefits of Bronze Trident and Silver Trident, as well as cabana discounts, two complimentary dolphin experiences and discounts across Atlantis Dubai restaurants.
