Family-friendly outing ideas for the weekend.
We are truly spoilt for choice when it comes to the number of fun things to see and do in Dubai. Winter in Dubai coincides with the peak tourism season – a time when new attractions open to the public, and this year, there is no shortage of such places.
Here are some of our suggestions for family-friendly outings that are affordable and fun for the whole family:
Experience new attractions at Kite Beach
The XDubai Skate Park at Kite Beach is the largest multi-faceted facility in the UAE, with skate areas designed for beginners and professionals. The park’s biggest feature is its skate bowl which provides a challenging skate environment for more advanced skaters.
Adventure enthusiasts will love Wire World at Kite Beach which features three thrilling zones, namely the Tarzan Swing, Bungee Ejection and the Accrobranche – three zones which are guaranteed to be a hit with the whole family.
See wildlife up-close at Dubai Safari
Located in Al Warqa 5 off of Aweer Road, this newly-opened wildlife park is home to 2,000 animals representing 250 species from all over the world. Visitors to the attraction can experience the world’s first drive-thru crocodile exhibit, and see the UAE’s largest aviary exhibit.
Take the kids horseback riding
Dubai Polo & Equestrian Club introduces children of all ages to equestrian sports through pony riding and horseback riding lessons. At the club, kids can learn more about these gentle creatures and develop a love for riding.
