Global Village extending its current season after public vote

More than 150,000 people wanted Dubai’s iconic theme park to stay open for longer

Global Village extending its current season after public vote

The breezy winter we’ve come to know and love is coming to an end – but that’s not stopping this theme park from closing before summer comes along.

Global Village is extending its current 23rd season for an extra week by popular demand, which means more time to explore the iconic park.

Now staying open until Saturday April 13, more than 150,000 people voted for it to extend the season in polls on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The park is open on Saturdays to Wednesdays from 4pm until midnight, and Thursdays and Fridays from 4pm until 1am. Mondays are dedicated to ladies and families.

The popular theme park is home to more than 25 pavilions representing 75 countries across the world, where guests can indulge in everything from Canadian poutine to Swiss raclette and Dutch mini pancakes.

There’s also a funfair where you can enjoy 28 rides and more than 100 arcade games. This season also featured a new circus show for the little ones to enjoy.

And how could we forget about the star-studded acts? Jason Derulo played on the main stage last year with more than 100,000 visitors on that day, along with an amazing performance from Liam Payne.

Here’s a taste of all you can do at the park, from stuffing your face silly to getting your face painted.

Speaking of things to do before the park closes, you’ll definitely want to head to Dubai Miracle Gardens, especially since they’re having a one-off yoga session this weekend.

The Dubai World Cup isn’t too far away either, and we’ve put together everything you need to know to get prepared for it, right here.

Encore!
Dhs15. Until Sat Apr 13. Open Sat-Wed 4pm-midnight; Thu-Fri 4pm-1am. Mon for women and family only. Global Village, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road, www.globalvillage.ae/en.
