Race in real cars, play a round of golf, freefall from nine metres high and have a flying safari trip, all in the same place, all under the watchful eye of the aforementioned blue hedgehog. There are only two ways of doing all that in one place, and the second one involves mind-expanding substances. The first, and easiest way, however, is to head to Sega Republic in Dubai Mall, an indoor theme park with nine rides and 150 arcade games spanning two storeys and 76,000 sq ft. Make sure you hit the Halfpipe Canyon, the park’s simulated skateboard ride. Sega Republic, The Dubai Mall (04 448 8484). Open Sun-Wed 10am-10pm, Thu-Sat 10am-midnight. Rides are Dhs15-30 and games Dhs8-25. Dhs100 for unlimited rides (for a limited time only).To see 100 more of our favourite things to do in Dubai, click here.
