We've unearthed the top things for kids at this year's summer surpirses
In his own world
Modhesh World, at Dubai Airport Expo, is the region’s largest indoor theme park. Featuring a funfair, stage shows, educational exhibits and more across three zones, there’s something at Modhesh World for kids of all ages. Here’s a taster of what you’ll find inside:
Learn traditional Arabic dancing or discover how to save the planet, join in a pillow fight or take a drum class in the giant playroom, have a blast in the In- Motion Kids’ gym or go horse riding.
Try your hand at drawing, painting, weaving and furniture making in the art and craft zone, while girls can escape to their own area for a spot of knitting or sewing. Tear yourself away from the mini-rollercoasters and bumper rides of the funfair to see if you can spot the ‘yella fella’ himself, shop at the Modhesh store and world souk. Dads will be relieved to hear they can put their feet up in their very own father’s majlis.
One for toddlers, you’ll find a 500 sq m soft play area as well as a sand and beach zone, and lots of opportunities to expend energy at the inflatable bounce and adventure park or at the Disney bouncing area. Let the kids run around the mystical maze while you watch them on the TVs and talk to them via a microphone. For some relative down time, check out the book bazaar with its library and storytelling sessions.
