Dhs100 play dates

Take your child (and their friend) on a wallet-friendly day out

Kiddie Ville

Kiddie Ville is a play centre featuring video games, arts and crafts activities, kid friendly rides and a soft play area. With a reputation for providing great value for money they offer a price of Dhs25 per child for one hour of play in the soft play area. The play centre in Al Barsha is located within the food court so there are plenty of nearby options for a range of cuisines, many of which offer kids options varying between Dhs10-16 so depending on what the little ones want to eat there’s a fair chance that you may even come in under budget.
