Get ready Dubai! There’s a massive ‘Carnaval’ happening at Global Village and it screams FUN for both the young and the old.

What’s It?

Dubai is no short of theme parks, for sure, but this one will definitely take you back to your childhood days. The Carnaval at Global Village is tucked in with a whole lot of fun things and has a little something for everyone in the family. The Carnaval has three main sections- Thrill Rides, Skill Games, and special attractions.

Thrill Rides

There are 30 thrill rides, each good enough to get your adrenaline pumping. If you don’t fear heights, get ready to get dropped off the sky. The Goblal Burj is one of the tallest rides in the region, soaring up a whopping 85 metres. And that’s not all. The Pacific Otobo, Honolo-loop, Jamaica Drum, Fly France, and the Caribbean boat take you up in the air, swirls you and throws you back down, ensuring you’ve had your fair share of fun. Definitely not for the faint-hearted!

Family Rides

And here’s something your whole family can enjoy. From double-decker carousels to a 60-meter high wheel, well-equipped with an LED screen that screens stunning displays including live shows and bumping cars, there’s a whole lot of rides you can pick from. There’s also an exciting roller coaster, fit for all ages.

And if thrill rides are not your cup of tea, head to New York Jump- a Trampoline park open for all age groups. Jump, bounce and flex your muscles while you have fun. There’s also an exclusive corner for kids with themed rides like the African land, Bahrain Merhana, Texas track and much more for the minis to unwind.

Meanwhile, the not so little ones can head to the shooting corner, experience virtual reality, find their way out in the mirror maze or get spooky in the haunted house. And, if you haven’t visited a circus in a while, this is your chance. Enjoy daring acts by the ringmaster, along with the main attraction- The Wheel of Death. The circus tent can accommodate up to 500 guests per show.
