IMG Worlds of Adventure
If you are a cartoon and marvel comic fan, then the world's largest indoor theme park, IMG Worlds of Adventure is a treat for you.
Located on Mohammad Bin Zayed Road just beyond Global Village, you can join the Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Captain America and the Hulk as they take to the skies to battle evil Ultro. Blasting off into a thrilling roller coaster ride across the lost valley filled with pre-historic dinosaurs through the Dubai desert would leave the dare-devil in you thrilled beyond words. However if you are looking for some light hearted adventure, you can help the Powerpuff girls, and Ben10 on their city saving missions. After so much of live action, if youÔÇÖd like to lay back, there are 12 movie screens where you could watch a nice flick.
Wild Wadi Waterpark
If you love sliding into splashy water rides surrounded by Arabian folklore, then Wild Wadi Waterpark is a place you must visit. Located near the Burj Al Arab, there is never a dull moment in this largest water park of the Middle-east. After getting drenched at the 59 feet waterfall, be ready to get tossed by three tornados at Tantrum Alley, and glide down 120 metre tandem slides at an astonishing speed of 80km/h at Jumeirah Sceirah. You can also experience the ultimate surf experience at the flow rides in Wild Wadi.
If you are a marine life lover, then this Aquaventure water park at the Atlantis on Palm Jumeirah Island will be your paradise. Swim with Dolphins, cuddle sea lions, feed cownose rays and also shoot down the 27.5 metre near-vertical plunge and enjoy an electrifying ride with the sharks. You can also battle with the king of the sea at the Tower of Poseidon rides and get driven to frenzy at the mysterious Tower of Neptune rides. Now if you want some inner peace, sail down the soothing river ride thatÔÇÖs the longest in this region.
How about some ice skiing, snowboarding, sledging and playing with the penguins in Dubai? Yes, the city of superlatives, Dubai, has it all. Part of the Mall of the Emirates, one of the largest shopping malls in the world, this indoor ski centre is sure to satisfy your winter sport cravings. You can ride the Snow Bullet and soar as high as 16 meters above the ground, while racing your family and friends along the 150 meter long zip line.
If your children are Lego toy fanatics, then youÔÇÖll have to head to Lego Land, the massive interactive theme park on Sheikh Zayed Road opposite Palm Jebel Ali, where children can ride, race, build, explore and shop Legos to their heart's content. Again this is the first theme park in the Middle-East to be based on the block-building toy range, Lego. If you are not a big fan of Legos, you can visit Riverland, the themed district on the shores of the beautiful man-made river at Lego Land.
