Things Kids Love to do in Dubai

If you’re going to be spending some time in Dubai or if you’re a resident of Dubai and you’ve got little ones, you’ve likely been struck with the question once or twice of, ‘What am I going to do this weekend with my kids?’  If you haven’t, then congratulations, you’ve won the child lottery.

Typically, kids need lots of things to do and see or they’ll just get bored and start complaining and we just don’t want that, do we?

So, it’s time to win the best mum, dad, aunt, uncle or grandparent award by taking your favorite children on some of these fantastic adventures in Dubai.

Dubai Parks and Resorts

Dubai Parks and Resorts is one of the greatest places to take kids in Dubai.  The huge parks and massive range of things to do means you can spend hours at each park, or even days, trying out some of the latest and newest rides and attractions in Dubai.

At Dubai Parks and Resorts you’ve got access to:

  • Riverlands Dubai
  • Motiongate Dubai

  • Legoland Waterpark Dubai

What more can you ask for?  They offer some pretty cool deals on annual passes, so get yours and see if you can conquer each park.  It’s fantastic fun for the whole family, we guarantee it.

We recommend Dubai Parks and Resorts Motiongate theme park if you’re a big movie buff family as you’ll be able to experience many amazing themed rides, attractions and areas such as DreamWorks (Shrek, How to Train your Dragon, Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda), Lionsgate (The Hunger Games), Smurf’s Village (The Smurfs) and Columbia Pictures (Cloudy with a chance of meatballs, Underworld, Zombieland and more).
