Theme parks, aquariums, malls and more
IMG Worlds of Adventure:
Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo
As you’ll come to expect from the city, our Aquarium & Underwater Zoo dials everything up to the next level. The massive aquarium shelters more than 33,000 aquatic animals (including over 300 sharks and rays) in the world’s largest suspended tank. Stand at a distance and admire the underwater spectacle or stroll through the 48-metre walk-through tunnel. For the ultimate thrill, dive straight in and feed the sharks yourself! Keen thrill seekers can choose to either snorkel in a cage or strap on a scuba tank.
For a unique experience, go skiing in the desert at Ski Dubai located inside Mall of the Emirates. All gear is provided and instructors are on hand to lead the way with skiing or snowboarding lessons. Those who don’t fancy the slopes can take to the Snow Bullet, a 150-metre zip line suspended 16 meters above the snow park, or indeed pop out for a spot of shopping in the surrounding mall.
The Lost Chambers at Atlantis, The Palm
Get up close with over 65,000 marine animals as you tour the glass tunnels of The Lost Chambers aquarium at Atlantis, The Palm. Sharks, stingrays and jellyfish are just some of the creatures that can be seen in this spell-binding underwater world. Inspired by the lost city of Atlantis, the aquarium’s underwater tunnels let you explore shipwrecks and city ruins teeming with the most amazing and colourful collection of underwater life. Sign up for a behind the scenes tour to uncover the secrets of this massive aquarium and even help feed some of the animals yourself.
In the interactive, imaginary world of KidZania, kids can interact with each other in a city complete with paved streets, cars, a hospital, a beauty salon, a bank, a television station, pizzeria and more. Parents will be pleased to see that kids get a taste of adult life with a range of professions to try. It’s edutainment at its finest, right here in Dubai.
Defy gravity with a freefall experience at iFly Dubai, the world’s first-ever wind tunnel at a mall. The ‘fall’ lasts longer than an average skydiving tandem jump and what’s more, you don’t need any experience to take your first solo dive, although instructors are on hand to offer assistance.
Bounce Middle East
Jump, spring and leap across more than 100 interconnected trampolines housed in the huge Bounce trampoline park in Al Quoz. Whether you test out some new tricks on the Big Bag, run up The Wall, or shoot some hoops in the basketball area—there’s an exciting activity for every skill level.
Get ready for an epic journey in one of the region’s largest indoor theme parks. The huge selection of attractions, games and rides at SEGA Republic includes one-of-a-kind experiences like Xyclone or Robotnik.
There’s indoor rock climbing, and then there’s indoor rock climbing in Dubai. At Adventure HQ, climbing fans can scale a nine-metre wall that looks and feels like the real thing with dozens of combinations that make it suitable for all levels of experience.
