Climbing high

Because every child should have an adventure on their birthday, especially if it’s filled with thrilling explorations and breathtaking climbs with their favourite friends

Finally Dubai kids can enjoy a birthday party in the outdoors. Aventura, set amidst the beauty of Mushrif Park, thrills little partygoers with ziplining through the forest, balancing across ropes and scaling great heights.

The party
Kids will have a birthday to remember while parents can be assured their little charges will be returned to them a little braver, a little tired out and with a lot of stories to tell. Because with 80 exhilarating activities to explore across five different circuit levels, they won’t have time to be bored.

The deal
Kids first attend a safety briefing to ensure that they get the most out of the day. Then off they trek to enjoy a medley of obstacles, tunnels and nets as well as higher ziplines for those who want an extra challenge. Accompanied by a trained guide, the group can enjoy The Rangers Circuit for kids above 1.15 metres, the Explorador, the Aventura for those who like an extra challenge and the Xtreme for the most daring.

The food
After all that woodland frolicking, rumbling tummies are well catered for. Each child receives their very own lunch box that includes an option of beef burger, chicken nuggets or veggie burger all served with French fries and a juice to wash it down. The party can also bring their own cake.

The cost
The party package comes in at Dhs175 per child, or Dhs150 for fun in the forest, but without the food.

The tips
Wear long trousers or leggings to allow the optimum comfort when sporting the safety harness. Take that from us.

The verdict
If you are a little jaded of the playcentre extravaganzas and fancy a bit of backyard fun then this one really is the party for you. Book it pronto.
