The city of Dubai and the whole country of the UAE are a stranger when it comes to snow. However, with some innovation and ingenuity, the city had managed to build its own contained winter season: Ski Dubai.

Set within the Mall of the Emirates, Ski Dubai’s 3,000-square meter area is a host to a vastness of pure snow, all carefully maintained to create an illusion in a country which only knew sunshine and heat.

3. IMG Worlds of Adventure – Buy Tickets Here

At 1.5 million square feet of endless tribute to movies and burgeoning businesses, the IMG Worlds of Adventure is Dubai’s largest indoor theme park. It is often compared to both Bollywood Parks and Motiongate due to its size alone. However, the main selling point for this place is its great deal of movie-themed rides which both locals and tourists could relate with.

4. Dubai Parks and Resorts – Buy Tickets Here

Based on the label alone, you can already tell what Dubai Parks and Resorts is about. But it is worth noting that this place is more than just your single amusement space to visit, but four. These include Legoland Water Park, Legoland Dubai, Motiongate, and Bollywood Parks.

Previously, we had used both Motiongate and Bollywood Parks as comparison to IMG Worlds of Adventure. As it appears, they are two unique theme parks inspired after Hollywood and Bollywood films, respectively.

On other hand, Legoland Water Park and Legoland Dubai are a host to as much as 40 different rides and multiple attractions. Heavily inspired by Lego, any of these two places hold the most towering Lego model in all of Burj Kalifa in Dubai.

5. Aquaventure Waterpark – Buy Tickets Here

Set within the very ocean of Dubai, the island by which Aquaventure Waterpark is raised is man-made. Despite this, however, the island makes for a complete marvel for its overall construct.

But with the waterpark at its heart, the place is a go-to among thrill-seekers who like to slip through long-winding and slithering slides.


Dubai may be a rich city that thrives with businesses which makes it economy boom. But it’s good that there are more options now for the whole family to enjoy. We’ve visited a few of these parks and we tell you that it’s really a nice experience for everyone. These theme parks are a sure testament to that.
