KidZania Dubai

Located on Level two at the Dubai Mall, the well-known educational kids dream is covering 80,000 foot indoor space built as a city replica where children can play and have ‘real’ jobs. With over 40 role playing activities for children aged between 2-16, they will learn all about jobs, money and develop life skills that cannot be taught in the classroom. They can then use their hard-earned cash to spend on sweets or treats in the KidZania shop – or keep in the KidZania bank for future visits. Admission is free for the under twos. 

Dubai’s Theme Parks

Opposite the Palm Jebel Ali on Sheikh Zayed Road the Theme Park Resort is incredibly fun for the whole family. Home to three theme parks, a water park and a retail and dining park, kids and adults alike will be spoilt for choice. The three parks consist of MOTIONGATE Dubai - full of rides and entertainment inspired by three of the largest motion picture studios in Hollywood (DreamWorks Animation, Columbia Pictures and Lionsgate), Bollywood Parks Dubai – with cafes, shopping, rides and shows inspired by Bollywood blockbusters, and LEGOLAND Dubai, offering over 40 LEGO themed rides and attractions.
