Take a trip to Dreamland Aqua Park: Miss the weekend crowds and enjoy the chilled waters of the lazy river, while the little ones burn off their energy in one of two fab kids’ pools. One of the UAE’s largest waterparks, Dreamland has something to offer everyone, from air-conditioned restaurants for hungry dads to a mini menagerie of Shetland ponies, deer and peacocks, which will doubtless prove a hit with animal-loving tots. And if you really love it, why not book a night in an air conditioned cabana, and get 30 per cent discount on the usual price?
Entry Dhs135 (adults); Dhs75 (children and students). Open daily 10am-6pm. Umm Al Quwain, www.dreamlanduae.com (06 768 1888).
