Dubai is a playground for thrill seekers always on the lookout for new feats to add to their adventure diaries. From flying through a maze of skyscrapers in Dubai Marina on the world's longest urban zip-line to jumping out of a plane as you float over Palm Jumeirah, there's an endless variety of things to do. But if you're looking to mix nature with adventure, few experiences beat the thrills offered at Aventura Parks. As the largest treetop playground in the region, this entertainment zone promises the best of both worlds - the serenity of nature mixed with just the right amount of adventure to keep your heart pumping as you make your way through a series of exhilarating challenges. Book your tickets as a myconcierge member at a special rate and spend two and a half hours exploring up to five adventure circuits, ranging in difficulty from easy to extreme.
Set within Mushrif Park in Dubai, Aventura Parks is surrounded by a forest of ghaf trees. A few moments spent here will make you feel like you've been transported away from the city's bustle and into the heart of nature. Here a series of five circuits awaits, where you can tackle over 85 exhilarating challenges including a series of treetop zip-lines, a 25-metre Tarzan jump and rope climbing. Circuits are classified by levels of difficulty and you can take your pick based on the type of adventure you're looking for. Before you begin, you'll get fitted with your harness and a coloured wristband based on your choice of circuit and you'll be briefed for 30 minutes to ensure you make the most of your time in the play zone.
The Rangers circuit is specially designed for young children, offering short, easy challenges at a low height. Parents or guardians can accompany their children if they wish. The Explorador circuit is best suited for families, where adults can accompany their children on bridges and zip-lines through a series of easy challenges. The Aventura circuit is where the adrenaline starts to get going. Boasting medium difficulty, the complexity of the challenge increases as you go along and it finishes with three zip-lines in a row.
For the fearless, the Extreme circuit is the best fit with a 25-metre Tarzan jump, a surfboard through the trees and off-the-ground challenges. But if you're looking to take the level of difficulty down a notch while still enjoying exhilarating heights, the Thriller circuit is for you, complete with the park's longest zip-line spanning 160 metres.
