These family-friendly theme parks are waiting to greet you
When beaches and parks get a bit too monotonous, heading over to a theme park is a great way to have fun with family occasionally. Here are some of the family-friendly theme parks in the UAE.
The Hollywood-styled theme park, Motiongate, can be enjoyed by all ages. Located in Riverland Dubai, this attraction offers thriller rides and rollercoasters for the adventurous bunch while having rides that are entertaining for children. If the Capitol Bullet Train is unappealing to your child, you can take them to Smurf village to spark their fun.
If you want to spend time with family collectively, then head over to the Hollywood Theater for plenty of shows during the day or to the DreamWorks and Columbia pictures show for a meet and greet with characters.
From Sundays to Thursdays, the theme park timings are 11am to 8pm. And on Fridays and Saturdays, the timings change to 11am to 9pm. You can book your ticket on the spot or online at Dubai Parks™ and Resorts.
