Modhesh World will last until September 10, running for 83 days; the longest period ever since its inception in 2000. A main attraction for the Dubai Summer Surprises, Modhesh World will operate throughout the summer – during the period of Dubai Summer Surprises, Ramadan and Eid – with around 40 themed zones featuring in this year’s edition.
Attractions for this year include a huge fun fair, a skate park zone, horse riding, the Modhesh studio, an inflatable zone, books bazaar, XBOX and Magic Planet zone in addition to numerous other entertainment areas.
“Modhesh World has evolved greatly since its launch in 2000. Due the outstanding response we have received each year, we were encouraged to bring something new and entertaining for our visitors. Along with the number of visitors each year, there has been an increase in terms of the number of activities and events planned and this year it is definitely bigger and better,” said Yousif Mubarak.
“Modhesh World is an event suitable for people belonging to all age groups as well as from different backgrounds. It offers a complete package of entertainment with education for children living in Dubai in addition to those holidaying here. Running over 80 days this summer, Modhesh World promises to be a rewarding destination for children after all the hard work they go through during their academic year,” he said.
“Dubai has a lot to offer this summer – with Dubai Summer Surprises, Ramadan in Dubai and Eid in Dubai and promotions running throughout this period, we are expecting many more tourists. Also, Modhesh World will be running for the longest period ever, thus we expect a lot more visitors this year,” he added
