How to keep kids happy during a visit to Dubai

As a lot of parents know, one of the most difficult tasks is trying to find activities that will suit kids of all ages. For most families, the answer is Modhesh World which offers attractions of all shapes and sizes and is conveniently located in one central area.

Dubai Summer Surprises - Modhesh World

Held in the Dubai World Trade Centre, Modhesh World is made up of eight different halls. Each has exciting activities for kids to take part in. Enjoy some of the top attractions including a Mirror Maze, The Slide, Fly Jump, Valkyrie and X-Rider. If you are interested in a little bit of a break, locate one of the closest parent lounges. This way, your kids can play while you can sit back and relax.


This year, Modhesh World will play host to many exciting guests, including a visit from Hala Turk, participant from Arabs Got Talent show from 2011. On August 16, this thirteen year old will be performing for the crowd with her hit single “Live in the Moment” sure to be included on the playlist.
