From Ninja Warrior-inspired courses to a haunted hotel, we've got plenty of indoor activities to enjoy all year round.


Haunted fun at IMG Worlds of Adventure

There's plenty of space for thrills at IMG Worlds of Adventure. Spanning an area that's equivalent to 28 football fields, this indoor fun zone presents the perfect day out for families. Little ones can spend their time making friends with their favourite cartoon or superhero characters, while the older kids get their kicks exploring the creepy Haunted Hotel… if they dare! Not for the faint of heart, they'll walk through a maze of corridors and encounter scary characters and changing scenery when they least expect it.


Splash around at Atlantis, The Palm

Atlantis, The Palm offers unforgettable and up-close animal experiences. With a little advance planning, teens can enjoy a day packed with adventure – scuba diving, snorkelling or an Aquatrek session to walk underwater at The Lost Chambers Aquarium? Alternatively they can make new friends at Dolphin Bay, one of the most sophisticated dolphin habitats in the world. The resort also has a dedicated teen 'zone', while the Wavehouse family entertainment centre is the place to be for cool arcade games, bowling and surfing thrills.


Be your own hero at Dreamscape

Incredible virtual reality adventures await at Dreamscape in Mall of the Emirates. The venue combines Hollywood-style storytelling, next-generation technology and theme park vibes for an experience that's nothing short of spectacular. Gaming highlights include The Blu' where teens dive deep into the sea to reunite a family of whales, and Curse of The Lost Pearl with puzzles to solve at every turn. Afterwards, take a break and travel to Alien Zoo, meeting and petting endangered alien creatures... just watch out for the galaxy's biggest predator.


Freestyle fun at Bounce


If your children are keen to give parkour a try, visit the Bounce trampoline park. Inside is the X-Park, a freestyle adventure course where they can use their ninja skills to leap, jump and backflip in a safe, controlled environment. The are special warped walls and impressive challenges to take on, while parents relax at the cafe upstairs or relive their youth in the 'free jump' arena – a giant network of floor and wall trampolines that is open to all ages.


Get your game on at VR Park

Teens can challenge their friends to a series of immersive rides and games that combine augmented and virtual reality. VR Park at The Dubai Mall has a host of thrills to suit every adventurer's style. For example, they can step into the (virtual) shoes of legendary assassin John Wick and battle baddies, experience the thrill of riding an out of control drone in Dubai's future, or feel the rush while freefalling down the record-breaking Burj Khalifa. Fun never looked this good.

Discover a new worlds at Arena Games

This multi-player gaming zone invites players ages 12 and up into immersive adventures using the latest in VR technology.
