There are also activities for children such as climbing cones, Rodeo Bull, Trampoline, Snookball, Kids boot camp sessions and toddler play areas located at the Kids Zone. 

For those looking for indoor activities, there are a number of options to choose from including Techno Rowing Centre and the Immersive Trip by Les Mills that combines high energy multi-peak cycling workout with a journey through digitally-created worlds.

The fitness activities continue from Festival Bay all along the scenic promenade up to Marsa Plaza with adrenaline-filled Dragon Boat competitions while there are also kayaks available for water-sport enthusiasts for fun and fitness activity on the water. 

To celebrate the Opening Carnival weekend, Dubai Festival City Mall will also have a stunning firework display and a special IMAGINE show at Festival Bay.
