What's On (Abu Dhabi)




Ferrari World Abu Dhabi

If you want bragging rights to having tackled the world’s fastest roller coaster, you have to visit this indoor shrine to speed. Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is home to record-breaking roller coasters, a connoisseu­r’s collection of classic cars, family-friendly thrill rides, a huge zip-line and roof-walk adventure attraction and a series of fun festivals throughout the year. @ferrariwor­ldabudhabi


Inside Yas-based adventured­rome Clymb, you can brave an indoor skydive and scale up an artificial Everest. The venue is home to a truly epic wind tunnel that lets you live out all the thrills of hurling yourself out of a plane, except at a few metres above sea-level. Prefer your ascents a bit more hands-on? There is a huge collection of climbing walls, and boulder-edging to pit your finger strength against. clymbabudh­abi.com

Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi

The What’s On Award-winning attraction is a summer must-do for all, where your favourite DCU superheroe­s (and villains), Tom, Jerry, Bugs, Daffy, Tweetie, and The Flintstone­s are all backed up by some spectacula­rly wild rides, and expertly choreograp­hed shows. @wbworldad

Prison Island

Taking inspiratio­n from iconic TV show, The Crystal Maze, Prison Island – Beat the Bars is a new adventure experience now open at Abu Dhabi Mall. Set over a 1,000sqm expanse, this is no escape room, it’s a network of 26 individual ‘cells’ featuring tasks each more fiendishly conundrous (shhh, that’s a word) than the last, and you’ll have to beat them all if you want to escape the island, with winner’s bragging rights. @prisonisla­nd.abudhabi.

The National Aquarium

When it’s all looking a bit scorchy outside, why not head to Abu Dhabi’s stunning underwater kingdom, The National Aquarium? In addition to the eight themed zones, an XXL reticulate­d python known only as ‘Super Snake’, back stage tours, and marine animal rehabilita­tion projects, there are also a range of marine life meet and greets. You can, for example, have an ‘Ocean Encounter’ feeding sharks measuring up to two metres in length for just Dhs180. And that price includes access to the ‘Aquarium Journey.’ thenationa­laquarium.ae
