AD­VEN­TURE, AMUSE­MENT AND AC­TION FOR FAM­I­LIES

Friday - - Leisure Charts -

For those who fancy an ac­tion-filled fun day out, head over to the new fam­ily amuse­ment cen­tre Orange Spin in Abu Dhabi’s Al Wahda Mall. There are ar­cade games, F1 car sim­u­la­tors, themed mini-bowl­ing, a photo booth, and a spy-themed laser tag arena with neon graph­ics. The venue also has a food and bev­er­age bar and a din­ing area. The amuse­ment cen­tre is open from 10am-10pm daily. Mad­i­nat Theatre will be trans­formed into the city of Agrabah as Aladdin the mu­si­cal takes to the stage. Un­til February 19, life-sized ver­sions of the beloved char­ac­ters – Ge­nie, Princess Jas­mine, the fly­ing car­pet – per­form cir­cus-style stunts and magic. In typ­i­cal mu­si­cal style there’ll be plenty of song, dance and elab­o­rate cos­tumes. Tick­ets from Dh180, show at 11am, 3pm, 4pm and 7pm. Timings vary; mad­i­natjumeirah.etix­dubai.com

If you feel like chal­leng­ing your­self and you’re up for a new ad­ven­ture, Aven­tura Ad­ven­ture Park is the an­swer. Set in a nat­u­ral ghaf tree for­est at Mushrif Park in Mirdif, the out­door ad­ven­ture park of­fers zi­plin­ing through the trees, hor­i­zon­tal and ver­ti­cal climb­ing walls, and rope course chal­lenges. Par­tic­i­pants are first trained in how to use and move around with the gear and har­ness, then they are un­leashed to work their best Tarzan im­pres­sions on the cour­ses. There are five lev­els of dif­fi­culty: the Rangers cir­cuit is for kids, Ex­plo­rador cir­cuit is suit­able for fam­i­lies, and Aven­tura, Thriller, and Ex­treme are more chal­leng­ing ex­pe­ri­ences. It’s Dh150 for adults, and Dh125 for chil­dren whose height is above 1.15m.
