Looking for some family-friendly fun-filled activities in the desert city this weekend? From Modhesh World, gravity-defying performances by the Beijing Chinese Circus, to treasure hunts along the Gruffalo Trail, here’s our favourite picks (AC guaranteed) for you this weekend! 

Modhesh worldModhesh World

If you are looking for fun, educational activities that will keep your kiddies busy, look no further than Modhesh World – the largest indoor “edutainment” theme park.  From their new 50-metre zip lines, haunted house, to dinosaur experience and huge ice rink, there are LOADS to keep the family entertained over its two-month run – we reckon you’ll especially enjoy X-rider, their 5D motion theatre and the slide!

Where: Dubai World Trade Centre (Halls 1 – 8)

Beijing Chinese circus

Beijing Chinese Circus

In a multicultural city like Dubai, we are lucky to have the chance to get a taste of different cultures anywhere and everywhere. If you and the fam are not planning to travel to China this summer, what about a traditional Chinese circus act at Mercato Mall? From glass balancing and juggling, unicyclists and contortionists, to roaming acts such as a thrilling interactive traditional dragon parade, your kiddies will not believe their eyes as they watch the gravity defying acrobatic acts. With no age restrictions and free access for all, the Beijing Chinese Circus is sure to keep peeps of all age groups on their toes.

When: 9 July – 16 July (4:15pm and 7:45pm)
Where: Mercato Mall
How much: Free!

My PonyMy Little Pony

Kiddies’ all time favourite friend, My Little Pony, is coming to Ibn Battuta Mall to fill this summer with dance, song and non-stop laughter! Their live performances will bring your kiddos to the dreamy Magical Ponyville and the beauty corner will make every little princess’ dream come true. Who doesn’t want a fun day with the ponies? 

When: 15 July – 25 July (5-8pm for live performance and 2-10pm for beauty corner)
Where: Ibn Battuta Mall

Gruffalo TrailThe Gruffalo Adventure

Who’s in for an adventure promenading in the forest through the Gruffalo Trail? We sure are! The Dubai Mall is bringing the much-loved and iconic children’s book to life this summer, and all members of the fam will be able to get a closer look at all the creatures living in the Gruffalo Forest! A souvenir map will be handed out and participants will need to interact with one another in order to collect stamps and figure out the right path. Once the Gruffalo Trail has reached an end, the littles will be greeted with a variety of different themed arts and crafts, PLUS a story corner where they will have the opportunity to meet and greet the star of the book himself, The Gruffalo!
