Dubai is known for many things, including its lavish shopping malls, being home to the tallest building in the world – the Burj Khalifa – and its amazing nightlife scene.

However, the city offers so much more for family holidays – believe it or not – and is the ideal location to spend your next family vacation with the kids.

In this article, we are going to explore three amazing attractions that are perfect for family days out, that are ideal to add to your holiday itinerary:

SEGA Republic

An indoor theme park that not only shelters you and your family from the heat, but provides enough entertainment for hours and hours, SEGA Republic is well worth a visit.

Located at The Dubai Mall, SEGA Republic has two floors filled with 15 thrilling attractions and more than 170 games. Some of these attractions include cutting-edge motions simulators and virtual experiences, while the games include the region’s largest assortment of skill and redemption games.

One of the most unforgettable leisure experiences you will find in Dubai, SEGA Republic provides families with a safe environment to enjoy their wide range of amazing attractions and games.

Prepare to encounter a laser field, a virtual reality bobsled and the Sonic Hopper, a nine-metre free fall ride that will make you scream or more! For the smaller members of the family, there are opportunities for them to shoot hoops and play Guitar Hero, ensuring they are not left out.

LEGOLAND® Water Park

A water park that was designed specifically for children between the ages of two and 12 (and their families), LEGOLAND® DUBAI Water Park is a wet and wild attraction that will have your whole family wanting more.

With over 15 water slides that include family raft, body and tube slide, a LEGO® Wave Pool, a DUPLO® Toddler area and a Build-A-Raft River – where you and your kids can build your very own LEGO® raft and drift off around the river.

Some of the most popular attractions include the Joker Soaker, LEGO® Slide Racers and the Twist and Spin.

Ski Dubai

The first indoor ski resort in the Middle East, this amazing wintery setting placed in the middle of the desert city is a magical wonderland where families can enjoy skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing and take a journey up the ski lift.

Made up of 3 000-square metres of real snow, families can strap on a pair of boots and take to the many indoor ski runs – including the world’s first indoor black ski run – ride in the Giant Ball, and practice their tricks on the many ramps and rails.

What’s more, for those who have never taken to the snow before, there are professional instructors on hand to guide you through your first ever experience, keeping you and your family safe.

For those who prefer to watch your kids have all the fun, there is a café with a balcony that looks out over the entire park, giving you a bird’s eye view of what your loved ones are up to!

Spoil your loved ones during your next holiday to Dubai, and ensure the whole family is kept happy and entertained by visiting on or more of the attractions mentioned above.
