The ultimate family destination
Dubai’s summer season is actually a prime time for families to visit because that’s when the popular Modhesh World festival takes place.
Running from Thursday, July 9, to Saturday, August 29, Modhesh World boasts a line-up of events that will keep even the most demanding children happy. Taking place at Dubai World Trade Centre, this year’s event is set to be bigger and better than ever. Here’s why Modhesh World is not to be missed:
Meet your favourite characters
Modhesh World will see appearances from popular characters such as the Transformers, Angry Birds and Hello Kitty, as well as the festival’s happy, iconic Modhesh himself. Your kids will love getting photo opportunities with their favourite cartoon friends.
With such a massive space to occupy (over 34,000 square metres), it is no surprise that Modhesh World 2015 holds the enviable record of being the region’s most attraction-packed theme park of its kind. As you would imagine there is something to suite everyone at Modhesh World, ranging from games to rides, thrilling adventures to interactive experiences. Each of its eight halls has its own identity and adventure, offering families and young ones of all age groups and cultural backgrounds the opportunity to enjoy a memorable summer. World-class attractions to watch out for at Modhesh World include The Slide featuring three slides that children of all ages and parents can enjoy together; The Mirror Maze which is a glass house featuring funky, weird and out-of-the-world mirrors for visitors to say hello to their strangest reflections; the Fly Jump offering rip-roaring fun for kids and the Vortex Tunnel that puts to test riders concentration and balancing skills as they attempt to walk on a bridge from one end to another inside a tunnel that spins.
Parents can still relax, too!
With special lounge areas on site, there are plenty of places to relax while your kids let off steam. You won’t go hungry either, with many food outlets serving everything from classic burgers and pizzas to all-important healthy options. During Ramadan kiosks will be covered to respect those fasting for the Holy Month.
