In this proceedings, we review the basics of quasiparticle anisotropic hydrodynamics (aHydroQP). Then we present phenomenological comparisons between 3+1d quasiparticle anisotropic hydrodynamics and experimental data from RHIC experiments at 200 GeV Au-Au collisions. We show that 3+1d aHydroQP model is able to describe the experimental results quite well using smooth Glauber initial conditions for many heavy-ion collision observables.
