Rooftop infinity pool is the new must-have in Dubai

A beautiful infinity pool has opened in Dubai offering diners and tourists an endless view of the Arabian Sea at the absolute height of a skyscraper. Called “the world’s first roof-top infinity pool,” the pool is built on top of 1,000-foot The Towers, the eighth tallest building in the world.

The first water slides will also be installed on the roof of the 130-story-tall, 1,711-foot tower. Delays on the date of the opening forced a last-minute change to its official title. Instead of “the world’s first and only rooftop infinity pool,” it will now be the “world’s first and only rollercoaster.” The 101-passenger coaster will spin the guests around 150 feet above the water, up and down.

The Aquapark will house five different water slides: The Vortex, Carousel, Skye Swing, Vortex Express and Skyline Ramp, according to the Telegraph. In keeping with its themed theme, each slide has its own name: the Vortex is The Hunger Gather-Rush, which is described as, “The Edge-Of-The-World Water Slide,” and “Skye Swing” is called, “The Skyline Ramp.” The Skyline ramp will feature a helter-skelter running through the center of the pool while the accompanying slide will leave the floating visitors on the edge of the tower before speeding them to the next level.

The stairs to the pool will start from the rooftop of The Towers, with access to the terrace taking about 15 minutes. The water slides on top will extend 35 feet long while the loops and slides on the other side of the tower extend to the 50-foot marks. The stomach-churning ride will take riders on a journey through “a neon-lined tunnel that twists and turns along the water’s edge, then ends in a tube that winds through three poolside slides and a second deck at the base of the tower’s roof,” according to the Telegraph. The aqua park will also have an eight-story interactive tower simulator, live music and art installations as well as a one-kilometer beach. At the end of the day, visitors will be able to eat, drink and dine on the top of The Towers.
