Mercury is finally dropping, which means it’s time to toss textbooks and homework to the side for a while and get started with the long-awaited fall break here in the UAE. To make sure this one is much more than just your average recess, our experts have put their heads together to deliver the ultimate fall break bucket list. Whether you’re looking to make the most of the beautiful weather by opting for outdoor activities or prefer to spend quality time with the family stacking up on fun indoor experiences, we’ve covered all the fronts. Now, let's get that planner out!
Let the fun begin!
Why not get the fun started bright and early by heading on a mesmerising morning desert safari with the family? Get the thrills going over an exciting dune drive before finding your balance on a sandboard. Take your knowledge from the classroom into nature as you try and spot local wildlife. To ensure you have ample energy for all the fun to come, indulge in a delicious breakfast by a beautiful lake in the middle of the peaceful desert before heading back to the city.
If you’re not quite done with adventures just yet, schedule in a quick trip to Aventura Park. Do some bonding with your family or friends on Jacob’s Ladder, take a thrilling Leap of Faith or go for a leisurely nature walk with your tour guide full of fascinating stories about the great outdoors.
Spectacular slides and splashes await!
What better way to enjoy the fantastic fall days than sliding into some sparkling waters? Dubai boasts quite a few action-packed waterparks, guaranteed to leave the entire family smiling from ear to ear. To cover all the sliding, splashing, surfing and relaxing you could dream of, spend a day at the Laguna Waterpark. Feel your pulse racing as you speed down the Mad Racer or drop to a Free Fall. To calm things down a bit, kick back and float down the lazy river or discover the beautiful La Mer beachfront decked out with quaint cafés.
Get your bounce on
If your idea of a relaxing school break doesn’t involve boot camp style workouts, it doesn’t mean the whole family can’t get their exercise in. Head to Dubai Mall or Nakheel Mall and bounce your problems away! Make your way across the trampoline road, conquer the challenging climbing wall, be whisked through the air as you give trapeze jump a go and determine the winner on the dodgeball court. Beware - after two hours of non-stop bounce-filled fun, you may want to book your next massage appointment to cure those sore muscles.
The sky is the limit
Since we’re already on the topic of reaching new heights, why not channel your inner dare devil to the fullest and go for a quick skydive? You can wipe that cold sweat off your forehead, as our indoor skydiving experience will take out all the risky bits and leave you with a load of fun!
Grab your companions and head to iFly Dubai to enjoy all the emotions of jumping out of a plane without the unnecessary dash of fear. Feel your heart racing and the wind in your hair as you turn your dreams of flying into reality. This experience is guaranteed to make this spring break one for the books!

Just because class is dismissed, doesn’t mean learning should be. Pay a visit to Kidzania and give the kids a chance to feel like grownups for a day.
