Visit The World’s Biggest VR Park in Dubai

Dubai is not only famous for its skyscrapers and stretches of desert but is also home to some of the most innovative theme parks in the world. Whether you are traveling with family or as a couple, you will never fall short of discovering new experiences. Dubai has so many exciting theme parks that one could even plan an entire vacation around them if you’re into that kind of thing. Right from adventurous water parks to the most terrifying roller coaster ride, there is always something to pump up your adrenaline.

One such uniquely themed parks is the VR park in Dubai which combines Augmented Reality(AR) and Virtual Reality(VR) to offer the 18 most enthralling experiences to people of all ages. It was definitely a sad moment for gamers when Sega republic closed down in Dubai but that was only to accommodate the VR park which has proven to be a better and grander version of the gaming arcade. This most definitely is one of the most fun things to do in Dubai Mall.

What’s inside the VR Park?

The entrance of the VR park is very enticing in itself which attracts a lot of curious souls. The grand entrance showcases an inverted image of the view of Dubai from the top of the Burj Khalifa which is the tallest building in the world which does a great job of bringing in the crowd that has just left the cinemas or visited the edutainment city of KidZania as they are all located on the same level in the Dubai Mall.
