Kidzania: A role-play theme based park, which is also located in Dubai Mall, but since it is also based in Mumbai, we decided to skip this one. If your kid has never been to one, you can just drop him/her there and shop in peace for atleast half a day. It’s pretty safe and kids above 8 can go on their own. If your kid is younger, then you have to accompany but I must warn you it’s only for kids so you might get bored. You can also read my review of Kidzania Mumbai here to understand the concept
SkiWorld: Ski Dubai is an indoor ski resort with 22,500 square meters of indoor ski area. It is a part of the Mall of the Emirates, Dubai. Another place that sounds like a lot of fun, but we couldn’t go there as we didn’t have enough time. They have skiing, ski lifts, ice skating etc.
Yas WaterWorld: Is situated right next to the Ferrari World and you can buy combo tickets for this and Ferrari World. However, I don’t think both can be done in a single day. We took a good 6 hours to do just Ferrari World. Yas Island waterpark spans an area of around 15 football pitches, with 43 rides, slides & attractions . It has world’s first, and largest hydromagnetic-powered, six-person tornado waterslide. For adrenaline seekers there are three-metre high waves on Bubble’s Barrel, which has the world’s largest surfable sheet wave for flowboards and bodyboards.
Swim with the Dolphins at Atlantis: Atlantis is one of Dubai’s premium hotels . It is also home to 65,000 marine animals. You can stay here and even if you don’t you can book experiences like the The Lost Chambers Aquarium, get up close and personal with the dolphins at Dolphin Bay, learn to scuba dive and swim with sharks at the Atlantis Dive Centre, or experience Aquaventure Waterpark. They also have rooms like underwater suites, which give you the views of the marine life in Atlantis from your room. Doesn’t it sound awesome?
What I also discovered in my trip is that they are building a lot many more theme park like the Universal Studio and more. With so many things to do around , this seems to be getting better and better for kids. So many reasons for me to go back to Dubai :)!!
