Someone showed me a picture of an underwater slide from an image site a while back. This got me interested, as I love the sea. And drifting on a little current between fish sounded like heaven to me.

After a little Googling, I managed to find this picture, which is in the Atlantis Hotel, in Dubai.

underwater slide from uniqhotels.com

Are there any other places that have underwater slides? I would love one that actually goes through the sea, not an aquarium, like the above, but I can see how that would be difficult.

  • I did the Atlantis Dubai underwater slide and it is simply amazing. I only wished it would last longer :) – Laurent Jul 4 '16 at 7:22

There's one at the Golden nugget in Las Vegas:

According to this list of waterslides, there is the Dolphin Plunge at Aquatica Sea World in Orlando, Florida.

As well as the Atlantis in the Bahamas that @Johns-305 mentions:

Aquatica San Antonio has one that goes through a stingray tank:

Also one in Tenerife. Watch the video on youtube.

  • Not sure you could call that last one a slide since they're riding rafts, but probably relevant nonetheless. (I would just call that an underwater tunnel, probably.) – jpmc26 Jul 3 '16 at 2:48
  • @jpmc26 I quite like the look of it anyway, it's an underwater pool-thing! Too bad all of these things are so far away (I live in Europe), but an awesome list nonetheless! Didn't expect there to be some many. – Belle-Sophie Jul 3 '16 at 10:04
  • I watched a video of someone going through the Atlantis shark tube. It's so quick, you wouldn't see anything. Maybe the raft thing is better for the view – Berwyn Jul 3 '16 at 15:25

Atlantis in the Bahamas also has two similar attractions.

Sorry, there are none that use open water since they need to control the entire experience.
