Explore Abu Dhabi’s Big 5

If you've had your Big Five fix back home, why not encounter a Big Five of a different kind just a flight away and with no jetlag? Explore the Big Five of Abu Dhabi - magnificent icons that should be on any traveller's bucket list when venturing to the Middle East, including the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Empty Quarter, Emirates Palace, UAE theme parks and the Louvre Abu Dhabi.

Featured this month are the UAE theme parks, from the world’s fastest and steepest roller coasters to all your favourite superheroes and cartoon characters.

For family fun and a thousand thrills a minute, your family can choose from a range of world-class theme parks across the destination, including Ferrari World, Yas Waterworld and MOTIONGATE™ Dubai, Legoland and Bollywood, among other fun family hotspots.

Head to Abu Dhabi’s Ferrari World with the Formula Rossa spitting adrenalin junkies out at 240km/ph and the bi-plane themed Flying Aces roller coaster featuring a start incline of 51 degrees and the world’s tallest loop of 52m.

Zoom, zip and slide through 45 rides including the Middle East’s longest suspended rollercoaster, a surfing experience, loops, humps and, not for the faint hearted, drops at Yas Waterworld.

And watch the silverscreen come to life at Dubai Parks and Resorts, located a short drive from Abu Dhabi and featuring some of Hollywood’s most beloved characters from DreamWorks Animation, Sony Pictures Studios and Lionsgate, as well as a theme park based on the sights and sounds of Bollywood, a unique interactive theme park for families bringing the well-known LEGO® brick to life in a playful learning environment and LEGOLAND® Water Park, the region’s first water park catering to families with children 2-12. 

Family fun is guaranteed for the young and young at heart in the UAE. This is theme park heaven like you’ve never experienced it before.

So bundle up your family and head to Abu Dhabi, more than just a stopover...
