Until April 10th, the Global Village agenda is dedicated to children, with numerous activities taking place across the park to further enhance the Silver Jubilee Season experience for younger members of the park’s fanbase.
Kids Fest is known for its giant board games and this year Global Village claimed the “Biggest Board Game – Snakes and Ladders” title with another Guinness World Record win. Families will be able to enjoy this and other giant games Four-in-a-row and Battleships (Pirate style). All-star character shows include Octonautes, PJ Masks, Care Bears, Chotta Bheem, Peter Rabbit and the unmissable Don’t Do The Dodo show. Furthermore, the all-new “Ice Cream Fest” will be running at the same time, meaning double the fun and even more reason to visit the destination from the final week of March onwards.
Shaun Cornell, Director Entertainment, Global Village, said: “Following the wonderful news that we will be extending our Silver Jubilee celebrations an extra two weeks, we are delighted to announce the opening of both Kids Fest and the brand new Ice Cream Fest just in time for the holidays. We have dreamt up a really exciting ice cream fuelled festival, filled with giant games, scoops and scoops of fabulous flavours and all your favourite characters live on stage. Come and join the fun every day until April 10th”
All Kids Fest activities are included in the AED15 entry ticket price.
