“We have always been committed to crafting infinite travel experiences for every single one of our guests, and hope that the extended hours of our Aquaventure Waterpark will mean greater flexibility for our guests to indulge in summer fun. Our goal is to make Atlantis Sanya even more magical and incorporate more nighttime elements, creating unique holiday experiences and everlasting memories,” expressed Alan Mahony, Vice President of Aquaventure Waterpark, as he officiated the start of Summer Splash Fun at the Aquaventure Waterpark on July 20.
Sprawled across 200,000 m2 of land, the Aquaventure Waterpark is the first water amusement park in China to open all year round. On July 20 at the official extension of “owl hours”, the Aquaventure Waterpark entertained guests with a variety of performances lasting all day, from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM. Demonstration of surfing tricks, feisty Samba dancing, spectacular float parades, mermaid shows, and live music by DJs kept summer spirits fired up all day long. As night fell, guests took in the breathtaking moonlit scenery while exploring the waterpark. Guests zipped down 34 exhilarating water slides that had their adrenaline pumping in sync with the dazzling light show and live music.
The lucky draw segment was one of the key highlights of the night. To celebrate the start of Summer Splash Fun and to incentivize guests to try out multiple thrilling water rides, Atlantis Sanya had prepared generous prizes to give out. Any guest that took on 4 different water rides would have been eligible for a chance at the grand prize – one night in the Neptune Underwater Suite, worth CNY58,888. According to event statistics, more than 10,000 guests attended the Summer Splash Fun at Aquaventure Waterpark. To end the night on one final highlight, the skies above the Aquaventure Waterpark lit up with a stunning and gorgeous display of fireworks, creating a magical and unique midsummer night memory for all the guests.
From July 21 to August 31, tickets to the Aquaventure Waterpark will be retailed at CNY258. Guests can purchase tickets via the Atlantis Sanya official WeChat account and on various online platforms, such as our flagship store on Fliggy.com, Meituan.com or Ctrip.com.

Other than summer partying at the Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark, guests can also experience a different extreme at the resort’s newly opened indoor ski park. Located within Dolphin Cay, FORYOU SKI is the first integrated indoor simulation ski park in Sanya, allowing guests to ski on advanced simulation facilities anytime during the day – no doubt a delightful winter treat in the tropical paradise of Sanya. Having already soft-opened on July 12, guests can now alternate between the cool indoor retreat of FORYOU SKI and summer water fun of the Aquaventure Waterpark.
