Who needs to travel the world when you can visit 75 countries in one day? At Dubai’s Global Village is there’s plenty to discover.
With more than 25 pavilions representing countries from around the globe, 28 rides, 100 arcade games, live entertainment and international acts, we can see why more than 150,000 people wanted Dubai’s iconic theme park to stay open for longer last season.
For its 24th season, Dubai’s hugely-anticipated destination will stay open until April 4, 2020, which gives us plenty of time to explore all of its attractions, new and old.
From its new ‘Wheel of the World’ to an exclusively cheaper taxi service, check out what to look forward to below:
You better believe it. One of the strangest collections of natural, scientific, artistic and human oddities is coming to Global Village.
It’s the first of its kind in the Middle East, where visitors can check out human and animal exhibitions, exotic items including authentic shrunken heads and skulls, mind-boggling visual illusions, and plenty of other weird stuff.
Global Village’s very own Carnaval makes a return, and three exciting new attractions along with it for the 24th season. Like what, you ask? There’s now a ‘Wheel of the World’ – a 60m observation wheel with panoramic views of Global Village and Dubai skyline.
That’s not all, as there’s now ‘Transylvania Towers’, a ‘hotel’ filled with special effects, animations and all things spooky. Perfect for Halloween.
As for the thrill-seekers of Dubai, the ‘Moscow Max’ is right you your alley. The pendulum-type ride will make riders feel weightless. Only one way to find out how that feels.
For a faster way to experience all the new rides and live shows, Global Village now has a ‘Wonder Pass Card’, to offer access to the Carnaval, Circus, Stunt Show and Ripley’s Believe It or Not! attractions.
Visitors can get them at any of the parks ticket counters. Entry to the park is priced at Dhs15.
With 25 pavilions representing 75 countries at Global Village, you can bet there’s plenty of dishes for foodies to dig into. There’s everything from Canadian poutine to Swiss raclette and Dutch mini pancakes, along with
RTA’s Dubai Taxi Corporation (DTC) has recently signed an agreement with the popular multi-cultural theme park, offering visitors exclusive taxis to and from the destination.
The best part? The taxis are more affordable than regular RTA taxis, meaning cheaper trips for families around Dubai to enjoy the park’s 24th season. We like the sound of that.
The exclusive transit service doesn’t just have a sleet of taxis, as family taxis, limos, Amira limos, convertible limos, and limo bikes will also be available.
