Red Bull Flugtag Dubai

Red Bull Flugtag Dubai 20151123T022438 20160228T094453:635922494931281902

Here’s a novel weekend activity idea: spend your Friday watching homemade aircrafts being launched off a pier and into Dubai Creek, in the hope that they just might fly. With the Red Bull Flugtag returning to Dubai this November, check out our guide for the best places to watch the action as it unfolds. 

Watch man-made flying machines crash in Dubai Creek

On 27 November 2015, the famous Red Bull Flugtag will return to Dubai for the first time in just under a decade. A fun-filled flying festival, the Flugtag is set to come back bigger and better than ever.

While the sight of over 40 teams throwing themselves off a pier into Dubai Creek in front of a crowd of spectators should be more than enough of a reason to go along and watch, the fact that the competition will be taking place in Dubai’s picturesque Creek Park means that there are plenty of ways to make a day out of it.

Here are the best ways to make the 2015 Dubai Red Bull Flugtag a day to remember.


Dubai Creek Park Cable Car

For a completely unique aerial view of the Flugtag, take the Dubai Creek Cable Car, which runs the entire 2.3km length of the park in just under half an hour.

From a perfect vantage point suspended some 30m off the ground, not only will the view of the competition be impressive, but the sight of the Dubai skyline and even the neighbouring emirate of Sharjah in the distance is nothing short of spectacular.

Where: Creek Park
Price: AED25 adults, AED10 children. Plus AED5 per person for the Creek Park entry fee


Children’s City

Located within Dubai Creek Park, Children’s City is three storeys of fun and frolics that places a great emphasis on children making discoveries through interaction rather than simply observing.

The building has a whole range of attractions for the young ones, including a nature centre, planetarium and an area devoted to learning all about cultural differences.

Where: Creek Park
Price: AED10 children from age two to 15, AED15 adults from 16 onwards, AED40 family ticket (two adults, two children)


Dubai Dolphinarium

Another ideal post-Flugtag activity located within the confines of Creek Park, Dubai Dolphinarium offers a range of shows that both children and adults will love, from dolphins and seals to exotic birds.

As well as the shows that can be viewed from a distance, guests also have the chance to get up close and personal with the dolphins, with everything from poolside interactions to deep-water adventures – all supervised by a trained and qualified instructor, of course – available to be purchased.

Where: Creek Park
Price: From AED100 to AED120 for adults, and from AED50 to AED70 for children under 11


BBQ Donut

What could be better than watching the Red Bull Flugtag from the comfort of a private donut-shaped boat, complete with barbecue and drinks?

Setting sail from the Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club – just across the river from Creek Park – the BBQ Donut seats up to eight guests at a time: float around the calm waters of the Creek while enjoying a sumptuous freshly grilled meal.

Where: Dubai Creek Gold and Yacht Club
Price: Depends on food and time choices
