How often does it seem that all there is to do in Dubai is connected to a shopping area or mall? That is where everyone congregates. Ever want to do something different and off the beaten path? Well here I name some of the best experiences to be had away from the mall crowd on your next trip to Dubai.
The Smash Room is a unique experience that is, at first, easy to sum up in words, but hard to describe the complete experience other than ‘awesome’. Whether you want to smash a computer to vent out workplace frustration, or smash plates and glasses to release stress, The Smash Room has got you covered. Just put on the protective gear they provide and choose your weapon of choice from hammers, crowbars, sledgehammers, and even axes. Plus everything you smash has been repurposed from salvage yards or donation; and all smashed pieces get recycled so you are not harming the environment. They are currently running Ramadan specials where certain pieces you can pay to smash support feeding hungry families. So why wait? Smashing stuff for a good cause? Count me in!
Lucky Voice Karaoke is a spot where you can let out your inner diva and do it either in the comfort of a private room with friends or, for those feeling adventurous, take to the stage to perform in front of the crowd. They cover a wide range of musical genres and the song list is quite extensive. They also serve drinks and food. Their menu is an eclectic mix of international flavours to please every palate. From sliders to tacos, burgers to salads – and their pizzas are great!
Okay, so this one is in Dubai Mall and the purpose of this article is to get you away from the hustle and bustle of the mall. Yet this is a Virtual Reality experience and therefore unique enough to warrant an exception! Turn your world upside down in the Ultimate Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Theme Park. Challenge Reality with your friends and family through mind-blowing rides and experiences that span horror, adventure, leisure, sport and more, with individual and multi-player experiences for all ages. I recommend trying The Raft experience.
