Soon children, teens and adults across Dubai will have a chance to be like Indiana Jones, for a few hours that is.
Aventura Nature Adventure Park - set in a 35,000 sqm forest in Mushrif Park (Mirdif) - will be the first adventure park in the city.
If you’ve never been to this kind of outdoor park before, expect everything from zip lining between trees to wall climbing and tree top surfing.
Aventura is expected to open in December, by which time the weather in Dubai will be a very pleasant 20 something degrees celsius during the day, staying pretty much the same all the way through till March.
There will be five levels of fun activities and challenges to choose from, catering to different age groups and heights.
“We believe that experiencing nature is a basic human need.” Aventura organizers say.
“Especially for youngsters who need to be persuaded to switch off their tablets or adults who are looking for something to help them escape their daily routines.”
They’re pitching Aventura as the perfect spot for everything from educational activities to team building days out for office workers.
Whatever the purpose of people’s visit, Aventura does seem like a fantastic way to enjoy the great outdoors.
