What will you be up to this Thursday, Friday and Saturday?
Two for one
Two of Dubai's best waterparks, Laguna Waterpark and Wild Wadi Waterpark, have announced a partnership: a joint one-month pass. For Dh199, you can experience both parks meaning double the fun this summer season! The one-month pass will be available until August 31 and will give you general admission for both Laguna Waterpark and Wild Wadi for a duration of one month (30 days) from the date of purchase.
Big screen Championís League
Youíre used to movie nights at Aljada in Sharjah but now itís time to get ready for something sportier. Championís League football is coming to the dedicated drive-in cinema. Watch every remaining knock-out match of world footballís most revered club competition, and enjoy a wide range of delicious meals and snacks from the Zad food district as Real Madrid take on Manchester City on Friday at 11pm followed by Barcelona taking on Napoli on Saturday. Both are free to enter.
Bollywood film fest
On tonight from 6.30pm, Bollywood film-fans need look no further than Roxy Cinemas City Walk, Dubai, for a brand-new film festival! Amazing entertainment including a magician, delicious food and more; pick from a selection of B-Town blockbusters to watch on the big screen including Good Newwz, Dream Girl, Baaghi 3 and Tanhaji.
Laugh out loud
Following on from the sellout July tour, The Laughter Factory is back this month to Ďsave the world from sadnessí. Three of the best UK stand ups will be leading the charge: Leo Kearse, Eddy Brimson and Dana Alexander. The first shows will be tonight and tomorrow evening at the Movenpick, Jumeirah Beach Residence, Dubai.
On the Waterfront
If youíre looking to keep the kids entertained, Dubaiís Waterfront Market has installed an interactive aquarium where they can bring their drawings to life and see them swim about from Friday. The process is very simple and engaging: kids sketch their drawings and then point them to a scanner connected to the interactive aquarium screen. Magic!
