5 Best and Popular Theme Parks in Dubai

Those who always travel with children, certainly cannot ignore theme parks. The United Arab Emirates is also not as expensive as other modern cities. And for that reason, many parks are simply affordable for the majority of tourists. The best theme parks in Dubai are indoor and beach complexes with points of interest, big and children's water parks, energetic and amazing amusement parks. The material below provides the most in-demand theme parks in Dubai: with prices, photos, and descriptions, reviews.


If you and your kids are true Lego fans, then a stop by Legoland is crucial. If you like fun on the water, then you certainly won't be dissatisfied in Legoland Water Park. LEGOLAND Windsor Resort is a large theme park with a wonderful number of rides and attractions ideal for all ages. It's a fantastic spot for kids; mostly above 110 cm and some of them are 120 cm. There are more than 40 slides, about 15,000 Lego models, in addition to all conditions for the manifestation of the creative abilities of children of any age. If you like fun on the water, then you certainly won't be dissatisfied in Legoland Water Park. LEGOLAND will keep you busy all day. Truly one of the popular theme parks in Dubai.

You have to spare 5-6 hours to taste all rides with a proper lunch or snack time. You'll find out how a lego brick is made and will see the structural miniatures in MINILAND. The park has Lots of restaurants. Outside food is not allowed in the theme park except for baby food and small meals for special diet requirements. You can buy annual passes to Legoland Dubai for 275 AED.


It's an awesome Hollywood theme amusement park with a good variety of rides and entertainment for all ages.  The attention to detail in the design of all their rides is completely superb. It has a few amazing rides for the adventurous and for the calm people. Roller coasters are a must-ride to try. There are various themed rides on cartoon movie hits like Shrek, How to Train Your Dragon, Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar, etc. And for those with a special adoration for cinema, you can go to the sets at Studio Central and see how films are made and even take part in this creative process at Motiongate. Indeed one of the best theme parks in Dubai.

It is easy to reach the place. Grab the Red metro line to the end station towards Jebel Ali (UAE Exchange). After that, catch a taxi for the short distance to Dubai Parks and Resorts. The rides are for all kids and adults but the thrill rides for adults are few. The ticket prices for Motiongate Dubai start from AED 184. However, if you buy a combo deal with any other tours like evening desert safari, you can save a good amount. 

IMG Worlds of Adventure

The IMG Adventure park is huge and properly designed and the biggest theme park in Dubai.  It's split into themed zones specialized in Cartoon Network cartoons, the Marvel Universe, adventure, and the lost world of dinosaurs. Kids who are between 5 to 15 years will have real fun. And adults also will be thrilled with the fantastic rides. 4D and 7D Ride hulk and avengers are perfect for families. The velociraptor is a must-have ride.

IMG also has strollers and wheelchairs for disabled persons. The place also incorporates a wide range of stores with a number of options as well as ATMs,  parking space, and everything you'd need during your time there. Recently, IMG Worlds of Adventure has introduced a new entry ticket that allows visitors to pay for their rides ‘pay as you go'. Guests will only have to pay Dhs20 to enter the world's largest indoor theme park and then each and every ride will be priced at Dhs25.

Ski Dubai

An absolutely lovely place and a fun-filled place for everyone whether it is a couple or a family.  In the past few years, it has received particular popularity. The complex has a capacity of 1.5 thousand people, its height is equivalent to a 25-story building and it is undoubtedly regarded as a full-fledged ski resort. Adults and kids would love this place and it is a nice change from the scorching heat of the Middle East. Both newbies and pros can feel cozy here. And those who start doing these sports for the first time need no worry as skilled instructors give lessons for a fee to anybody who requires it.

It's one of the largest indoor skiing in the world with real snow. And the most thrilling theme parks in Dubai. From ski slopes to cable cars to take you uphill, from snow parks with penguins to ski lessons, this one has it all. Lines move slowly when getting your gear but the experience is fun. The park keeps a temperature of -1 degree to 2 degrees celsius all year round. Visitors don't need to bring clothes as ski Dubai has clothes. Admission to the snow park for adults and children  – 190 AED.

Wild Wadi Water Park

Spend a fun-filled day at the Wild Wadi Water Park! Located in front of the stunning Burj Al Arab in Jumeirah, Wild Wadi provides 30 rides and points of interest for the whole family. The park's theme is dependent on the tale of Juha, a recognized character from Arabian folklore. I counsel you to start your trip early to Wild Wadi Waterpark. It's far better to enjoy the park for a full day; plus that it could easily get crowded in the second portion of the day. For safe practices, you aren't permitted to enter the park with food from the outside. But you can have water with you. Inside the park, there are some restaurants and snack stands.  

The entry fee is based on height, with a limit of 1.1 meters. Kids up to 2  years free. If you book your tickets online, you typically get a discount. You should check online the latest rates and offers for Wild Wadi on their official site here.
