A task in the 6th leg of The Amazing Race 15 took place at its water park. All 14 team members had to slide down the resort's Leap of Faith water slide, which dropped them along 200 ft and 90 ft down an 84° incline and through a tunnel beneath the aquarium's shark lagoon. After retrieving the clue at the bottom of the exit pool, teams had to search the water park for a beach located near a lagoon, which was the sixth pit stop in the race. However, only 13 team members made it down the slide, as one of the team members (Mika) was afraid of heights and water, and she and Canaan were eliminated. In 2009, an episode of The X Factor was partially filmed at the hotel, with Dannii Minogue using it to choose which female contestants joined her in the live shows. In the video game Ace Combat: Assault Horizon, mission 7 (Power Play) takes place in Dubai, in which one can fly through the hotel gates to get the achievement "Checking In". The achievement will give 10 Gamerscore Points to the player on Xbox 360 and a Bronze Trophy on PS3.
