Family-Friendly Places to Visit in Dubai
Here is the list of family-friendly places in Dubai
1. Burj Khalifa
The Burj Khalifa is an impressive site to see, and the observation deck on the 124th floor is a great place to go if you want to experience Dubai with your family. The first observatory deck is on the 108th floor, while the second one that goes up to the 124th floor has a separate ticket and takes longer due to security checks. I recommend going all the way up even though you have to wait in line as it’s not crowded there and there are fewer people who will try taking pictures of your kids (that or they just don’t care).
The views on both floors are spectacular! When you go up, make sure everyone has their cameras ready because there are photo spots throughout where everyone can take photos together. Also, remember that it gets really hot so be sure everyone wears sunscreen and brings bottled water for hydration purposes.
2. Dubai Miracle Garden
Dubai Miracle Garden is a park located at the end of Sheikh Zayed Road, just outside of Dubai. It features more than 80,000 flowers of every color and shapes imaginable, including a stunning array of colorful butterflies and birds.
The park is open 24 hours a day, making it an ideal place to visit with your family when you’re looking for some fun things to do in Dubai during the evening or on weekends. There are also plenty of activities at this park that can be enjoyed by all ages—from children’s playgrounds to botanical gardens where you can learn about different types of plants and other wildlife found in the area.
3. Dubai Ice Rink
If you are going with kids then the Dubai Ice Rink is a must place to visit. Located in Dubai Mall, the ice rink is open from November to March each year. The Dubai ice rink tickets are available on official website but better to go with other portal site that offer nearly 20 to 30% discount. It’s suitable for skating, curling and hockey. Skates are available for hire and there are also lessons available for beginners.
4. IMG Worlds of Adventure
If you’re looking for a fun place to take the whole family, IMG Worlds of Adventure is a great option. It’s fun for kids, adults and families. The park has rides that appeal to people who love rides as well as people who love animals and nature. There are more than 30 rides throughout the park, including roller coasters and a water park with slides and pools.
IMG Worlds of Adventure tickets offer has four themed areas: Marvel Super Hero Island (a superhero-themed area), Jurassic World (a dinosaur-themed area), Toon Lagoon (an animated townsville) and Cartoon Junction (an area where you can meet characters like Scooby Doo or Bugs Bunny).
5. Dolphin Show in Dubai
This is a great place to visit with your family and children, but it’s not cheap. The Dolphin Bay is part of the IMG Worlds of Adventure theme park, which also houses other attractions such as the Lost Valley Dinosaur Safari and Kingdom of Dinosaurs. You can buy tickets for individual attractions at the gate or buy a pass to get into all of them (which will be cheaper). If you plan on doing more than one activity during your visit, then buying an all-inclusive pass will save money in the long run.
The Dolphin Bay has different packages available depending on how many people are in your party, which includes tours and meet-and-greets with dolphins. In addition to these package deals, they also offer private time slots where customers can swim with dolphins without an extra cost per person!
6. Dubai Mall
Although Dubai Mall is the largest shopping mall in the world, it offers much more to its visitors than just a place to buy things. In addition to over 1200 stores, there are plenty of restaurants, an aquarium and other attractions for kids.
Dubai Mall has so many things for children that you may not have time for everything you’d like to see and do during your visit. You’ll want to make sure your kids get some time on the skating rink (there’s even a skating school), go down one of the four indoor roller coasters or take one of the rides at KidZania (an interactive learning center). For those who want something quieter but just as fun (and educational), check out Reel Cinemas’ FilmZone which has eight screens playing new releases as well as classics like Frozen – Live at The Hyperion! Kids will love seeing Elsa & Anna perform up close & personal with their favorite friends from Arendelle while parents can enjoy complimentary popcorn!
7. Bollywood Parks Dubai
This theme park is located on the Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai. It was opened to the public on December 17, 2020. It contains attractions based on several prominent Bollywood films, including “Koi Mil Gaya”, “Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge” and “Krrish”. The park also hosts numerous other attractions such as a Legoland Discovery Centre, a movie studio where guests can shoot their own scenes from famous movies, an amusement arcade and several restaurants serving Indian cuisine.
