Dubai, UAE – 09 August 2022: 
Liven up your summer getaway by visiting the best indoor theme parks and water parks across Dubai. Whether you’re looking for a heart-pumping experience, or simply want to beat the heat, there are exciting options to choose from to guarantee an epic holiday.


Indoor Theme Parks

Kids and young-at-heart will surely have loads of fun at Motiongate Dubai. Located at Dubai Parks and Resort, this theme park lets you enjoy thrilling rides and attractions based on the most successful and beloved Hollywood movie franchises.


Guests can get a chance to meet and take photos with their favourite movie characters from Kung Fu Panda, Shrek, and Madagascar. Expect to relive a few fantastic cinema moments here, including those from Ghostbusters, The Smurfs, and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.


Ideal for a fun day with families and friends, Motiongate Dubai also features exhilarating rides. Scream your heart out on rollercoasters such as The Green Hornet’s High-Speed Chase and the Madagascar Mad Pursuit, or drop down vertically in the high-speed Zombieland Blast-Off. It also has the world’s fastest single-car spinning rollercoaster, themed after the Now You See Me thriller.


Offering year-round entertainment and recreational experiences, IMG Worlds of Adventure is one of the world’s largest indoor theme parks in Dubai. The park features six zones: Marvel, Cartoon Network, Lost Valley – Dinosaur Adventure, The Haunted Hotel, IMG Boulevard, and IMG Kids Zone, all spread over 1.5 million square feet in a temperature-controlled environment. There is a great range of rides and attractions for all ages, including 22 thrill rides and kiddie rides, and as well as photo opportunities with Marvel superheroes like Iron Man and Captain America, and well-loved characters like The Powerpuff Girls.


This summer, the park presents IMG Worlds’ SummerFest featuring themed décors and dazzling entertainment including Hawaiian Dance, African Drummers, Bollywood Dance, and more!



One of the best ways to beat the summer heat is to spend a day at one of Dubai’s world-class waterparks.

Dubai’s original splash zone, Wild Wadi Waterpark offers an exciting collection of rides and attractions, which are continually updated over the years. The waterpark’s features are themed around Juha, a beloved character from Arabian folklore. Relax along the lazy river, chase for adrenaline rush at the tornado-themed Tantrum Alley, orsimulate a surfing experience at Wipeout.

Located at Dubai Parks and Resorts, there’s plenty of fun in store at Legoland Water Park for children aged two to 12 years. Most rides and slides allow little ones to ride together in groups or race against one another. The Duplo Splash Safari caters to toddlers, while the single slides provide thrills for braver bigger kids. Those looking to float down the lazy river can customise their rafts with big, soft Lego-style bricks at the Build-A-Raft-River before sailing off.


Aquaventure at Atlantis The Palm is one of the most popular waterparks not just in Dubai, but also in the world. The park has different heart-racing options such as Poseidon’s Revenge and the Leap of Faith. The former encloses riders into a see-through vertical tube, leaving them to plummet towards the ground once the trap door opens. The latter is a wide-open, near-vertical drop that are not for the faint-hearted.


Located at the charming beachside attraction La Mer, Laguna Waterpark should be included in your summer itinerary. Billed as ‘Dubai’s coolest beachfront destination’, Laguna Waterpark houses a huge waterslide complex with thrilling rides for fun-seekers of all ages. Try surfing at the WaveOz 180 FlowRider experience – one of only three in the world – or hop aboard the Manta for a cool raft ride with epic twists and turns. From action-packed thrills and the dedicated children’s zone, to the infinity pool and lazy river, Laguna Waterpark has it all.


For a more relaxed visit and to spend more time at these attractions, holidaymakers can take advantage of the ongoing Stay for Seven, Pay for Five, OR Stay for Five, Pay for Three summer offers at hotels across the city.


Stay at Atlantis The Palm during your visit at Aquaventure Waterpark. There are also participating hotels located at Palm Jumeirah including Fairmont The Palm and Sofitel The Palm. Book a stay with your family or friends at Lapita Hotel, or Rove at the Park when you visit Legoland Waterpark and Motiongate Dubai.
