11. Air Maniax

This vibrant, bouncy hangout is a big hit with energetic kids. Spread over 23,000 square feet, Air Maniax's most extraordinary zone is an inflatable arena for kids of all ages-- and grownups too. Older kids will enjoy the challenging barrier courses, the zip line, and the laser tag game, while the littlest bouncers have their devoted toddler location to go nuts in. The colour-coded, sensor-activated wristbands are an included perk that allows competitive kids to go up against each other to get the most outstanding ratings. An enjoyable thing to do in Dubai for kids.


There are lots of happening activities on offer in the Dubai branch. This monster is four times the size of a basic trampoline and can generate a force of over 14Gs, which is what a fighter pilot feels. X Park is a dazzling way to discover your inner Spider-Man and leap around its lots of challenges and pipelines to work up a sweat, from its spider wall to its climbing up the wall. Kids can let loose all their pent-up energy in this parkour zone.

8. Caboodle.

There are loads of activities and experiences for little explorers to find at this edutainment centre in the luxurious mall, consisting of a soft play zone, dressing up area for role play, a tiny city, climbing up pit and jungle gym, plus themed arts and crafts. As a bonus, whatever they get penetrated is targeted at promoting physical, cognitive, and social advancement.

7. Cheeky Monkeys

A world of colour and enjoyment awaits little explorers at the Cheeky Monkeys soft play centres. Innovative neon-lit slides, tiny zip lines, fantastic dressing up location, and a massive ball pit supply unlimited home entertainment that energetic toddlers enjoy. Plus, there's a café serving hot kid-friendly meals and Starbucks coffee for the mums and fathers.

6. Dig It!

A play area based upon a real-life building website, kids can dig, move, tunnel, climb, develop, and develop here. They can also drive a remote-controlled truck, pilot a mechanical arm, and even try out a full-size digger while building their abilities.

This is a popular soft play hotspot not just with the little ones, who can play safely in the different toddler locations, however with older balls of energy up to 10 years old who like climbing, checking out, and moving. The crafts and arts zone is constantly a substantial hit, too, with everybody.

5. Fabyland

The name states everything-- well, sort of. With an array of amusement games, tourist attractions, and flights, any child will tell you that they like spending quality time at this indoor tourist attraction. The home entertainment centre has 15 significant flights, a MyTown space for kids to play and find out,  100 game machines,  making it one of the largest household home entertainment centres in UAE for children aged three and up.

4. Fun City

A play area for kids aged 1-12 years old, Fun City is known to offer hours and hours of fun for energy-filled kids in a safe, pleasing environment. The Play Zone includes a soft play structure with various vibrant and appealing components to engage kids. It's a clean and safe environment for each of them to participate in helpful play, developing their physical, social, mental, and emotional skills. Attractions for older kids are also offered.

3. Funky Monkeys

Instead of the tourist attraction with children sliding into a ball pool, crawling through aerial assault courses, or just banging their heads against cushioned crashmats for an hour or more, we still do not know. Regardless of years of research study, there is no sensible explanation. Yet they love it. There is a loose jungle style at this Sheikh Zayed Road facility, lending it a slight outdoorsy feel. Dealing with the assumption that it is too hot to play outside and you might play inside, it is unsurprising that this is a popular summer spot for birthday celebrations. Oh, there's a laser arcade for older kids, too.

2. KidZania

There's simply something fun about pretending to be a doctor, a contractor, a fireman, or a chef. KidZania is a beautiful world of make-believe where kids can function, play more than 40 occupations and earn their own KidZania cash, which they can then spend on their escape in the on-site store.

1. Magic Planet

Magic World homes flights and activities for all ages. There's a soft-play for the kids and pool tables for the not-so-little ones (hey there, Mum and Father). Fancy some bowling? There are 12 ten-pin lanes for that, too, plus plenty of food outlets to refuel in, after some arcade video games. Gravity, a trampolining location, is ideal for budding acrobats, plus there's a merry-go-round, bumper vehicles, and more. Phew.
