Nakheel Mall is set to offer visitors an unparalleled entertainment experience, complementing its portfolio of retail, dining and leisure attractions with the launch of GAME OVER Escape Rooms and Board Game Café.

Spanning across 11,000 square feet, the unique entertainment zone features 12 escape rooms, 11 meta-escape rooms where VR headsets make the escape experience more immersive and a board game café with more than 50+ titles for board-game fans to explore.

Through curating entertainment experiences aimed at bringing people together — families, friends and colleagues, for special occasions, team building or just a fun day out — the GAME OVER Escape Rooms and Board Game Café offers visitors the chance to enjoy a range of rich experiences at Palm Jumeirah’s leading luxury shopping destination.

Designed by professional animators and creators of dramatic alternative universes for film, the experiences are aimed at families, adventure seekers and horror fiends and combine cutting edge technology, riddles and puzzles, whilst staying true to the original themes and storylines.

Agatha Christie fans can enjoy the mystery of the Orient Express Room and the Money Heist Room will get fans adrenaline pumping.

Competitive board gamers can explore new titles or enjoy the familiar challenge of well-loved board games in the café’s impressive collection, where they can purchase games to add to their collections.
