Dhs100 play dates

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


Funky Monkeys Playland
Funky Monkeys is a jungle-themed play area where active kids can have a blast. Entrance for one hour costs Dhs40 per kid and gives access to a huge soft play area jam-packed with soft balls and other activities that will keep them entertained. There’s a café onsite where parents can sit and enjoy a cuppa while the kids play, and if they’re feeling hungry afterwards, you can treat them to a kiddie meal and some juice, although this will bring you over your budget of Dhs120.

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 at 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.

Extreme Fun

Extreme Fun is a neighbourhood play area and party centre which offers a soft play area, toddler’s area and passes with access to all areas. If you opt for the two hour play pass that allows access to all areas it’ll set you back Dhs50 per child but will keep the kids happy with a wide range of activities to get stuck into. There’s also a great onsite café where mums and dads can relax, and although the play leaves nothing left in the budget for food, there is free Wi-Fi so you can check your emails, social media and generally catch up on life while the kids are kept amused.
