When summer arrives in Dubai, there’s no other place in the world you’d rather be. It’s the word ‘fun’ written in the smile of your family, it’s a breathtaking shopping experience, it’s a never-ending journey of surprises.
The city offers a lot of fun for the little ones. Check out Dubai’s great indoors where there’s a vast choice of remarkable family activities to be experienced … from skiing (or tumbling) down snowy mountains at Ski Dubai – the Middle East’s first indoor snow park – complete with resident penguins and a 150m-long zip wire, to skydiving in the iFly wind tower at Mirdif City Centre mall. Kids as young as three can experience this adventure and it’s ideal for those who aren’t old enough (or brave enough) to do the real thing above Palm Jumeirah with Skydive Dubai.
More adrenaline-fuelled rides await at SEGA Republic at The Dubai Mall – the biggest indoor theme park in the region – while next door at KidZania, children from four to 16 years old can explore a child-size city and try their hand at over 80 professions. Don’t miss exploring the underwater world at either of the city’s fascinating aquariums – Atlantis’s Chamber of Secrets and the Dubai Aquarium at The Dubai Mall, home also to the Dubai Underwater Zoo.
