As key players in Dubai’s travel and hospitality sectors accelerate efforts to revitalize the tourism industry, several top attractions have opened their doors again to provide diverse experiences to UAE residents and tourists, further enhancing the city’s position as a year-round must-visit destination.

Iconic family entertainment destinations and attractions have reopened under stringent health and safety protocols designed to ensure the health and safety of visitors amid the pandemic, as the revival of Dubai’s tourism industry gathers momentum and everyday life returns to normal across all sectors and communities.

The successful citywide management of the pandemic has helped instill confidence within the society, generating an increase in demand for domestic tourism, as well as encouraging global travelers to make Dubai their first choice destination.

Dubai Parks and Resorts reopened on 23 September 2020. It is the largest integrated theme park destination, comprising a triad of theme parks. Hatta Wadi Hub reopened on 1 October with new attractions like a 10-meter-high climbing wall that includes five lanes; a slingshot that propels those looking for adventure, fun and suspense to a height of up to 50 meters, and paragliding, which provides the opportunity for visitors to view Hatta from an unprecedented vantage point.

Dubai Safari Park reopened on 5 October following a comprehensive revamp of many of its facilities. The Palm Fountain opened on 22 October and Global Village on 25 October.
