7 Places Where You Can Get Active Indoors with the Kids

September 16, 2019 Posted by: Kidzapp Team Kids Activities

From wall climbing, inflatable fun to a kids' gym, there's plenty for big and small to enjoy...

Though waking up to a sunny sky every day is one of the perks of living in the UAE, it also means that soaring temperatures don't always allow us to take the kids outside for a bit of fun. So if you have boys and girls that need to blow off some steam and you prefer the welcoming comfort of the A/C, we have some ideas on where to go with the family when it's too hot outside.


1. Visit a thrilling adventure park





With over 23,000 square feet of pure adrenaline-fuelled excitement, you can have a laugh at the inflatables arena, compete against each other in the multi-level warrior assault arena, experience what it's like to fly as you zip-line, navigate through a maze of lasers and more.

Most activities are suitable for kids 100cm and above but if you want to bring your toddler, there is a designated area for the tinier ones.
