Take the monkeys to Modhesh World: Yes, Modhesh World is back for the summer (it opens today), and you can expect all the usual entertaining activities at this spacious, air-conditioned indoor fun park located at Dubai Airport Expo. Although the admission cost is low, you do pay for all the individual rides, which include log flumes, mini roller coasters, dodgems, train rides and the ubiquitous jungle gym and soft play area. It can be a fairly pricey session, especially if you have more than one child, but it’s a great place for your kids to enjoy a noisy run-around. Call for timings and prices. Modhesh World, Dubai Airport Expo, www.dubaievents.ae (600 545 555).
