Skateboarding in an Empty Waterpark Looks Crazy Fun

Skating a drained in-ground pool is old hat by now, so an entire waterpark was the obvious logical step forward.

In this short video, Alex Sorgente, Milton Martinez, and Jan Hoffman shred what was once Atlantis’ aquaventure park in Dubai, without falling off these impossibly high slides. If you’re looking for great tricks, look elsewhere—this is purely about spectacle and also not dying.


Why is this video so damn short? Is aquaventure a made-up word? And does a single switch control the water flow to the entire park, as depicted in this video? (We’ve reached out to Atlantis for comment).
