Summers are upon us and soon families shall make plans for holidays and fun. Children would want to beat the heat while parents explore various options for fun in the UAE. With a host of hot deals available across the country, coupled with fun packages, live shows, exhibitions and performances lined up; there is hardly a dull moment in this country.
This summer is promising to be a great one for kids. Those with an adventurous streak can splash it out in one of the many water parks. Dreamland Aqua Park in Umm Al Quwain (UAQ) has been conceived as the largest water park in the region with the motto - 'fun is a right for everyone'. Dreamland Aqua Park offers great rides and abundant space for overnight camping, water polo, beach volleyball and go-karts.
The park's main attractions include Kamikaze, Twister, Twisting Dragons, Family Raft Ride, Mighty GoAround, Slide Five, Lake-o-Waves, Jacuzzi, Pool Games and Slam Dunk among others. Families can also experience the ultimate Dreamland Aqua Park's overnight camping for two days full of fun, exciting rides and memorable experiences. The park authorities make sure that you stay in comfortable temperatures while the children can chill out with friends.
As the mercury goes north, a dash to Funky Monkeys Play land is just a great idea. This edutainment centre in Dubai - located on Sheikh Zayed Road - offers kids a huge soft play area where they can enjoy birthday parties, laser games, arts and craft activities, pizza making fun and culinary classes. Children will be immersed in Funky Monkeys with its vast activities like balloon decoration, balloon bending, game hosting, face painting, henna, air brush tattoo, nail art, mascot, photo booth, clown, puppet show, magician, bouncy castle and juggling show among other attractions.
Summer does not mean being stuck indoors anymore. It is time to plan your outing with children and simply undertake a great variety of activities.
