Let it all hang out on the Sky Trail: If you have a little monkey in your midst (or feel in need of an adrenaline boost yourself), try the latest attraction for thrill-seekers down at Playnation at Mirdif City Centre. The recently-opened Sky Trail takes the whole Playnation experience to new heights. Suspended about 15 metres above Magic Planet, daredevil visitors (aged seven and above) get to zip, clamber and swing their way around the obstacle course. Don’t worry, you’re perfectly safe – the ‘fun engineers’ will truss you up like a turkey in a secure harness before unceremoniously shoving you through a gate and across a zip line to start your scramble around the course.
Dhs70 for assault course, Dhs100 for assault course and climbing wall. Open Sun-Wed 10am-9.30pm; Thu-Fri 10am-11.30pm; Sat 10am-10.30pm. Playnation, Mirdif City Centre, www.playnationme.com (0800 534 7873).
