Here’s what’s new at Global Village…
House of Fear
Set to leave you quaking in your boots, House of Fear will be the region’s scariest haunted house experience. A team of actors will work across nine experiences set within 660 square metres, immersing guests in knee-trembling settings, including a haunted cemetery and a screaming tree.
Diggers Lab, which already exists in Abu Dhabi, will land at Global Village for season 27, inviting children of all ages to take on a hydraulic digger experience. Budding little builders will take control of operating diggers, dumpers and other construction machinery.
New additions at Ripley’s Believe It or Not!
This popular Odditorium is back for a fourth year, with 50 new exhibits to check out. New oddities to admire include a 14-foot-long killer crocodile, a matchstick model containing over one million matchsticks, and a brand new photo opportunity in the Torture Chamber gallery. Say cheese.
Global Village Big Balloon
For the first time ever, Global Village visitors will be able to soar above the theme park in a one-of-its-kind helium balloon ride. Rising more than 200 feet above the ground, they’ll be able to enjoy amazing views of the park and the Dubai skyline – epic Insta shots guaranteed.
Every year, Global Village adds something new to the shopping and cultural destination and this year will be no different with the introduction of ‘Road of Asia’.
Global Village is home to 27 pavilions (to celebrate its 27th season) but there are plenty of countries that are not represented. Enter ‘Road of Asia,’ which will give visitors a chance to experience these fantastic countries and what they have to offer. A total number of 13 countries will be represented here in over 40 kiosks. The countries participating are Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Cambodia, Malaysia, Brunei, Laos, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Vietnam, Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar and the Philippines.
