Glow Park

The Glow Park is the heart of the attraction, with magical light installations on a range of themes. The original season focused on the wonders of the world, while later seasons featured animals and conservation. The 2019/2020 season’s theme is ‘Back to Nature’, with an emphasis on recycled and reused materials.

Art Park

The Art Park can be found inside the Glow Park and entry is included in the basic ticket. The area’s exhibits also glow, but the exhibits have an extra emphasis on renewable materials and eco-friendly messages.

Dinosaur Park

The Dinosaur Park is a must-visit area, especially for families with kids. It features over 120 animatronic dinosaurs that move and make sounds. There are also information boards which tell you more about each species featured, including when and where it lived and how it became extinct.

Ice Park

The Ice Park is the largest ice sculpture park in the Middle East, featuring several seriously impressive feats of art. Each year, more than 5,000 tonnes of frozen water are shaped into delicate sculptures of animals and famous buildings. Visitors will be given jackets to help them handle the 17.6℉ (-8℃) temperatures inside the icy attraction. Tickets to the Ice Park cost an additional AED 40 and can be bought when you arrive at Dubai Garden Glow.

Magic Park

The Magic Park is new in 2019/2020 and is an attraction full of optical illusions and interactive artwork. Dance on the ceiling, detach your head from your body, or ride a lion through the jungle - and make sure to get a picture of each fantastical situation! The Magic Park is included in the basic ticket for Dubai Garden Glow.

Will my children enjoy a visit to Dubai Garden Glow?

Absolutely! Kids of all ages will love exploring the brightly colored light displays and spotting all the different animals on display in the Art, Glow, and Ice Parks. They’ll also be entranced by the optical illusions in the Magic Park. Parents with very small children might want to arrive earlier in the day since the park is open late and your little ones might fall asleep if you arrive after dark. The Dinosaur Park is also more fun to explore during daylight hours. The paths inside the park are well-made, so you’ll have no problem exploring with a stroller. Read more.

How much time should I plan to spend at Dubai Garden Glow?

You can see each area of the attraction in about an hour, so it’s recommended to spend around four to five hours exploring in depth. Of course, you might not want to see everything, so you can easily cut that time shorter by picking and choosing your route wisely and skipping one or two of the parks. Read more.
