Price cut attracts more children to play games

DUBAI — A price reduction in games announced by the Dubai Summer Surprises (DSS) Office recently has brought children and their parents swarming to the largest indoor entertainment venue in the region. Games organisers at Modhesh Fun City said that activities have this year been specially designed to suit visitors of all ages providing a family entertainment package. The result has been an influx of visitors from countries within and outside the Middle East, they stated.

“My parents know how much I love Modhesh Fun City and I’m so glad we’re all here,” said seven-year-old Takwa who came to Dubai with her parents, two sisters and brother. “I came here to see Modhesh, and like every year, I’m going to take home pictures of us standing together,” she added.

Jessica Salmans arrived from Ireland to be at the 30,000 square metre venue. “Modhesh Fun City is simply amazing. I never thought it’d be this beautiful and this truly is one huge city. I’d love to see Modhesh and take many snaps with him to show my friends back home,” expressed Jessica before rushing off to the games zone.

For brothers Saif and Rashid Abdulla, the youla at the Maidan is what brings them both to the fun city every weekend. “We noticed that Modhesh Fun City has become much bigger this year, and one day is not enough to play all the games. This is why we come every weekend. We are also big fans of the youla competition and we spend a lot of time at the Maidan,” said Saif.

Modhesh Fun City is open to public from 10am to 10pm on weekdays, from 10am to 11pm on Thursdays and Saturdays, and from 3pm to 11pm on Fridays.
