So what should we do this weekend?
With the weather cooling down, the city has been buzzing with the re-launch of some of our family favourites. So whether you're looking to plop down for a casual family movie night under the stars or up for some carnival thrills, there's plenty to do with the whole gang.
Take your kids on a global adventure at Global Village, where they can experience the culture, food, and festivities from around the world all in one place. With amusement rides, arcade games, a play area, and live performances, there's plenty to keep the little ones entertained. This season, don't miss the Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Museum, Carnival, Stunt Show and Circus.

Escape to a floral paradise with your family and marvel at the breathtaking flower designs and structures at this place.

Make your way through the largest mobile maze in the world, stretching over 25,000 sq. ft., with nearly 3,000 meter of paths. Spend hours laughing together and at each other as you and your family members try to make your way out.
The best part is that you can visit again and again since the maze is designed and developed in modules – so the system of the paths is changed regularly. Make it to the center and you'll find a viewing platform towering 5 meters high. There is also a direct “Quick Exit” route out of the maze, without having to walk all the way back again.
