With its celebrated beach resorts, desert landscapes, and top-of-the-line ever-expanding infrastructure, the emirate of Dubai is a haven for vacationers. And while magnificent Dubai is primarily known for shopping, dune bashing, and belly dancing, it is also widely regarded as one of the best family vacation spots. If you are heading to Dubai with your little ones and wondering what to do in Dubai with kids, you can rest assured that there is no dearth of places offering children’s activities in Dubai. To make your family trip to Dubai even more special, you could book a Seawings seaplane tour. With its one-of-a-kind water take-off and landing, this luxury-cum-adventure 45-minute tour on board a Cessna seaplane is loved by teens, young children, and parents alike.
Here’s a list of the places your kids are sure to love:
IMG Worlds of Adventure
Spread over a massive 1.5 million square feet, IMG Worlds of Adventure is the world’s largest indoor theme park. Its four adventure zones, numerous adrenaline-pumping rides, live cartoon shows, animatronic dinosaurs, and a 3D attraction called “Avengers: Battle of Ultron” make it one of the most sought-after places to visit in Dubai for kids.
If on any given day, you are unsure of what things to do today in Dubai, make it a point to visit this indoor skydiving facility. Housing the world’s largest and tallest wind tunnel, Inflight Dubai uses up-to-the-minute technology to generate the most advanced vertical wind. Not a big deal, right? But what if that wind lets you experience the thrill of skydiving without actually jumping off an aircraft?! You will be literally giving wings to your little one. Since a parachute isn’t involved, this type of ‘skydiving’ is very safe.
Parkour DXB and X-Park
When you are looking for the best things to do in Dubai, you cannot leave out Parkour DXB and X-Park. Through its spring camps that last for a week, Parkour DXB lets teens learn a signature style of parkour movements in a safe and controlled environment. Bounce X-Park, where the phrase age-no-bar aptly fits, is for anyone who loves jumping high and landing soft and safe.
With its real and virtual games, this entertainment hub is amongst the top things to do in Dubai with kids. Unleashing your children’s imagination, the games here let them ride virtual dragons, witness mystical lands, and explore battlefields. Besides, Hub Zero also has mindboggling racing simulators and arcade games. In addition, it has an interactive 3D ride where teens enjoy engaging the zombies with their laser guns.
Atlantis, The Palm
Can you imagine 65,000 marine animals in an aquarium? Well, Atlantis, The Palm – an island resort – has one. Themed on the lost city of Atlantis, the resort houses one of the best waterparks in the Middle East. It offers activities like shark safaris, tank dives, and snorkelling excursions. The resort is a habitat for dolphins and rare species such as white-skinned albino alligators.
VR Park, the world’s largest indoor virtual reality park, offers the next-gen experience with its holographic augmented reality and virtual reality. Teens will enjoy their time controlling a virtual drone, jumping (virtually) from the Burj Khalifa, and dune bashing in a futuristic jeep.
