You can never be too ready for your child’s birthday party. In fact, you need to be prepared way ahead of the date to ensure you can incorporate all the fun activities you intend to include for a memorable birthday celebration.
But before anything else, you’ll need to decide how the event should go. Getting this sorted out first will help you answer other key questions about the event, like where to spend it and what activities you should include.
Figuring out how to make your child’s special day extra wonderful now? Here are four special ways you can spend your child’s birthday in Abu Dhabi:
1.Cater to their need for speed at Ferrari World
If you have a pre-adolescent to teenage birthday celebrator, speed may just be the name of the birthday game. The good news is, Abu Dhabi can offer you more than that.
Home to the first and only Ferrari-branded theme park globally, Abu Dhabi also houses the fastest and tallest rollercoaster in the world. With the 40 adrenaline-pumping rides in Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, your budding thrill-seeker would have everything they could ever wish for on their birthday (and probably even more).
Ferrari World Kids also offers plenty of family-friendly activities even younger children will enjoy. A dedicated party team would be more than happy to arrange a personalized event just for your child at Cavallino or any dining outlet you prefer.
When to Schedule the Party
Since most rides and attractions are located indoors, you don’t have to worry about weather conditions when booking a party at Ferrari World.
Be it winter or summer, the temperature is always cool in the Abu Dhabi theme park, save for the Ride or Drive attractions involving an hour-long ride around Yas Island.
But since Ferrari World is a famous tourist destination flocked by people, especially on weekends, it would be wise to time your child’s birthday party during less crowded days.
Even better if you can book a reservation online and let them know about the occasion that you’re celebrating with them at least five days early. They’ll be more than happy to help you plan your child’s birthday celebration.
2.Arrange a meet-and-greet with your kid’s heroes at Warner Bros. World
Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi is another fantastic place to serve as a venue for your child’s birthday. Arguably the coolest party venue in Abu Dhabi, Warner Bros. World is also the largest indoor theme park in the UAE.
Here, children can meet some of their favorite superheroes and cartoon characters, including Batman, Superman, the rest of the Justice League, and even Bugs Bunny with the other Looney Tunes characters. In fact, the place is divided into six “lands,” namely:
- Warner Bros. Plaza
- Dynamite Gulch
- Cartoon Junction
- Gotham City
The Warner Bros. party package venue is ideal for at least 12 partygoers and includes a birthday cake, goodie bags, refreshments, and The Flash Pass that grants your birthday guests access to the park.
When to Schedule the Party
Aside from booking at least five days in advance, you can visit the park at any time of the year.
They are open every Saturday to Wednesday between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m., and Thursdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., with rides operating daily from eleven in the morning onwards.
Like Ferrari World, Warner Bros. World is quite popular, so you might want to schedule your party during less crowded days of the week (mid-week).
3.Offer many fun ways to cool off at Yas Waterworld
Is the weather too hot to celebrate a party? That’s never an issue when you head to Yas Island theme parks. Besides indoor destinations like Warner Bros. World and Ferrari World, Yas Waterworld offers many other ways to cool off from the Abu Dhabi heat.
As the first mega waterpark in the UAE, Yas Waterworld is the perfect choice for party goers who want to make a big splash during a birthday celebration. It offers dozens of exhilarating rides, including the longest water coaster in the MENA region.
When to Schedule the Party
Yas Waterworld is open all year, though the desert climate might make summer trips to this outdoor destination a bit uncomfortable. Of course, if your child’s birthday is anytime during the cooler months of October to March, you don’t have anything to worry about.
Their regular operating schedule also tends to change, though the regular timings are as follows:
- Saturday to Wednesday: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
- Thursday: 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.
- Friday: 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
4.Introduce new activities to your child at Yas Mall
Generally, malls serve as prime destinations for kids to have genuine fun, and Yas Mall is no different.
Here, you’ll find numerous child-friendly activities that could make for a delightful birthday party for younger kids. Below are some of the most visited birthday venues you can consider:
KidZania is an interactive children’s destination that is always at the top of the list for birthday parties in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi. Here, they allow you to customize the party according to your child’s age and preferences.
The best part is, you don’t have to worry about anything else. The children can get the party going in a dedicated party room, complete with cakes and other birthday party essentials. They also let you choose some special extras to toss into the party before they head out to the downscaled “city” to play their roles.
If your child is among the sportier, more adventurous members of the bunch, Adventure HQ may be a more appropriate choice of birthday party venue.
Also located in the Yas Mall, the place can cater to bigger groups broken up into teams so everyone can enjoy the different exciting activities, like zip-lining, obstacles, and rock climbing.
Don’t worry, the kids are perfectly safe here. With several instructors watching closely, you can rest assured that the entire party will be safe and enjoyable at all times.
When to Schedule Your Party
Like most indoor attractions, birthdays spent at the Yas Mall can be held on any day, though choosing less crowded days of the week would be ideal.
It also pays to know the operating schedule of the mall and the specific establishment you choose for your child’s birthday celebration.
Yas Mall is open starting at 10 a.m. every day. It closes at 10 p.m. from Saturday to Wednesday and at midnight every Thursday and Friday.
