Dubai is one of the best places in the world to raise kids. Aside from the quality of life and high safety standards, the city has fantastic entertainment venues for children. Here are some of the attractions to be found at Mall of the Emirates, one of the top shopping malls in Dubai.
You're never too old to be a child again! There’s something for everyone, kids and adults alike, at Magic Planet. It is the largest indoor family entertainment centre in Dubai, loaded with international award-winning rides and games spread over two levels. It has racing simulators, arcade games, soft play, a gravity trampling park, Astro Blaster, Drop & Twist, G.force, bumper cars and bowling. For younger kids, there is a Ferris wheel, trampolines, a merry-go-round and a huge children's playground.
Introduce your child to the world of art at Dubai Community Theatre & Art Centre (DUCTAC) - the only non-profit, multi-purpose creative centre in the region, and a hub for Dubai’s performing and artistic community. Their facilities include a 543-seat theatre, a black box studio theatre, The Gallery of Light, dance and rehearsal studios, and 18 art studios and classrooms. Every week is packed with performances, exhibitions, classes, and workshops. DUCTAC provides entertainment and education for the region’s multi-national community and is a great environment for nurturing children’s creative instincts.
Snow in the middle of the desert? Yes indeed! Ski Dubai is the first indoor snow park in the Middle East - a beautifully designed winter landscape where you can enjoy skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing, and much more. Enlist for skiing lessons at the Ski School, get up-close and personal with Ski Dubai's penguins or soar to new heights with their state-of-the-art chairlifts that provide breathtaking views of the park. After the trip, you can sit back and relax with steaming mugs of hot chocolate at the Avalanche Cafe.
Sometimes, there is absolutely no excuse to stay at home. Explore Dubai with your family, and discover the wonders of this city.
