Ultimate Guide To The Best Soft Play, Playrooms And Kids Entertainment Centres In Dubai (Part One)



19 JAN 2016 | AUTHOR: JEN | ★ MYDUBAI


Part 1 - One to Fourteen



I didn't realise how much Dubai have grown in terms of kids entertainment centres, how the indoor play area in the city have evolved in so many levelsI mean, gone are the days when indoor play centres meant just a tired soft play area, which offers all the usual suspects such as ball pit, climbing structure, and one or two boring slides. Well, not anymore... the indoor play centre scene in Dubai had became brutally competitive that kids and parents are swamped with options, the dilemma of where to take the kids for an indoor play date is just too much to handle (first world problem!).

From glow in the dark sensory room, go karting sessions, salon where kids can book themselves in for a cut, mani/pedi or a massage, a jumping arena with wall to wall trampolines and circus grade padding, neon-lit mini-golf course.... Needless to say, the possibilities are endless.

Here, then, are 40+ new out of the box play zones that have spawned in Dubai play area scene over the years, featuring something for everyone - from the restless teenager who needs a new hobby, to the mum who wants to kick back on a sofa with Wi-Fi and coffee while keeping an eye as her toddler goes exploring.
