This incredible entertainment destination could be opening in Dubai
The new ‘Dubai Heart’ proposal includes record-breaking attractions…
Living in Dubai, we’re no stranger to vast, grand and often slightly mind-boggling architecture, and new plans have now been proposed for a stunning heart-shaped Dubai entertainment destination at Dubai’s Jumeirah beach.
If passed, the breathtaking ‘Dubai Heart’ will include a potentially record-breaking climbing wall, colossal water slide and glass sea passage, as well as a sea view sky walk, restaurants, retail strip, yacht bay, amphitheatre and two observation decks, giving visitors unparalleled views of the Burj Al Arab and Burj Khalifa.
The plans for the new destination come from Nad Al Shiba Engineering Consultants as part of a competition by Dubai Municipality which requested for proposals create a waterpark destination under the theme ‘Dubai Heart’. An official competition winner or schedule for building has not yet been announced.

Plans reveal that the entire project would comprise of two entertainment destinations; one retail and leisure space on the shore – shaped like a wave, and the heart-shaped entertainment structure 150m out to sea, both of which would be connected by the record-breaking glass walkway.
On the beach, the structure would house an ‘open plaza’ with various food outlets, shops and a stunning sand art piazza, as well as the amphitheatre and glass viewing platform. Another huge draw for tourists and Dubai residents alike, would be a stretch of beach for leisure and sunbathing, as well as an artificial surfing bay.
Adrenaline-packed activities would await in the heart-shaped structure including a state-of-the-art Cloud Trip feature, where visitors could ‘experience life in future or life on air’, walking on huge inflatable bubbles or the cloud walk. Of course, it’s here where visitors would also find the climbing wall, slide and second viewing platform.
If plans do go ahead, the Nad Al Shiba Engineering Consultants hope for the projects’ main attractions to break Guinness World Records; for ‘the world’s largest indoor climbing wall’, ‘the world’s highest water slide’ and ‘the world’s longest glass passage in the sea.’
We can’t wait to see if the Dubai Heart proposal becomes a reality…
