Could this be Dubai’s ‘coolest’ new spot?
Dubai Garden Glow has re-opened for a third season and there’s a brand new attraction- an ice park.
The winter-themed destination is a Dubai first, and joins the glow garden and dinosaur park to form the 100 acre Dubai Garden Glow destination at Zabeel Park two.
The ice-themed park, which is maintained at a chilly -8 degrees opened to the public this week.
But don’t worry if your wardrobe is only full of Dubai summer-wear. Coats are provided for anyone heading into the ice park.
Designed around the theme of global warming, inside, you can expect ex-ice-ting sculptures made of the frozen stuff including a Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, Sheikh Zayed Mosque, the ice age, camels, dinosaurs plus plenty more.
Other highlights that form part of season three of Dubai Garden Glow include a new ‘magical nights’ area, littered with illuminated animal sculptures and a laser effects and lights show.
There will also be a #mydubai art installation, an ‘underwater wonderland’ experience designed for the little ones and a ‘happy forest’ sculptural installation made from recycled fabrics which are all new additions for this season.
The new additions join the existing 100 animatronic dinosaurs on display and the glow garden filled with creative installations constructed from luminous recycled fabrics and 10 million (energy saving) LED lights.
Dubai Garden Glow, Zabeel Park two, daily 4pm to 12am, Dubai Garden Glow, Dhs60, extra Dhs40 for entry into the ice park. More info on Facebook
