X-Park and Parkour DXB

Where to try parkour in the UAE

No doubt your teens are keen to give this urban acrobatic trend a try, and Parkour DXB offers the perfect opportunity. With a range of kids’, adults’ and family classes taught by world-class trainers, active youngsters can learn the signature style of movement and how to use it to get from A to B in creative, gymnastic ways - and all in a safe, controlled environment. If structured workshops aren’t your child’s style, set them loose at X-Park: the newest addition to trampoline haven Bounce, where they can literally bounce off the walls on a challenging adventure course.

The Void

An interactive game that puts you in control at JBR’s The Beach

The Void takes video games a step further with this new ‘hyper-reality’ experience - and what teenager doesn’t love video games? Combining a virtual reality headset with props and added elements like cold winds and scents, the game (currently themed around the movie Ghostbusters) allows players to feel like they really are zapping monsters on the rooftops of New York City. Even the pickiest critics will be impressed.
