Atlantis - When do various pools open and close?

We will be at the Atlantis the end of May and beginning of June. I have heard that Aquaventure opens at 10 and closes at 5pm during the winter and 7pm during the summer. Does anyone know when their summer hours start?

Also, do all the pools not open until 10, or will the pools and the traditional lazy river by the Beach Tower be open earlier?

I visit in early May every year. All pools open

at 9AM, water slides/current at 10AM.

Not sure about old lazy river. Was not open

last November when I was there.

Not sure when summer hours start but

when I was there in May they were

open til 7.

Surprised they have summer hours. On our last visit , in July, everything closed at 5:00. The lifeguards 'ran us out'. Even got yelled at for being in the pool before 10:00.

My memory was off about the closing time for

the pools/slides. I just called Atlantis and was

advised that the pools and slide are now open

until 6PM. Also, I looked at a copy of the

Atlantean Daily Activities Guide sheet from

May 3, 2008 and it says "pools open 10AM

to 6PM". I think the pool opening has changed

since then to 9AM but slides are still 10AM.

I think it changes with the time of year.

We have been there in July and October, and the times were different each trip!

The beach is even closed at a certain time.

Does anyone know why the pools are not open in the evening? I've never been to a hotel where you cannot night swim, especially in the summer when it's still light out.

Probably because Atlantis does not want to

pay the lifeguards any more hours worked.

It's not like there's only one pool and the

Current 'lazy river' has many lifeguards

scattered along it.

Or to get people into the restaurants and casino. Many Las Vegas hotels close their pools early too.

You can't imagine how many lifeguards are on duty at one time in Atlantis. Just the Current alone has one every 25 feet or so. I'm sure that must cost a fortune per hour so they limit the hours to the daytime.

Atlantis main cash cow is the Casino though, they want you out of the pools, out to dinner and back at a reasonable hour to go gamble.

I agree with you and understand the lifeguard dilemma, but at the same time I think some of the pools should be open considering how much it is to stay at Atlantis. I found that when we were there, we ended up back in the room around 8 or 9:00 because after dinner and shopping there was nothing else to do :( It would have been nice to swim in the evening, and the pools always look so pretty lit up at night.
