Aventura Parks Dubai - obstacle course in Mushrif Park Dubai

Swing your way through Aventura Park Dubai

by Dubai Travel Planner

Aventura Parks is an outdoor adventure playground found in the Ghaf forest of Dubai’s Mushrif Park. Offering various physical challenges, you make your way through this nature playground by zip line, suspended rope bridges and climbing walls – appropriate for 6 years olds through to adults.

This is a hands-on and active experience and one of our favourite hidden gems in Dubai. It is particularly great for families with adventure-seeking kids and teens looking for unique ways to explore Dubai away from the usual soft plays and indoor centres.

It’s open to all ages (though some height restrictions apply) to enjoy nature trails through to thrilling adventures – you’ll be hard-pressed to find anything else quite like this in the Middle East!

Do allow yourself enough time from entering Mushrif Park to get into Aventura Park – say 20-30 minutes before your allotted time to park, confirm ticketing and take bathroom breaks. The first 30 minutes of your allotted session is used for harnessing up and a safety briefing before you hit the ropes for the next 2.5 hours.

What to expect at Aventura Park Dubai

There are five different courses to try at Aventura, split out by age groups and skill levels, as well as individual one-off challenges to complete and a nature trail and mini kids section for those under the age/height limit.

Your Aventura experience starts with being strapped into a safety harness then attending a 30-minute safety briefing and training session where you will have all your fancy climbing equipment explained to you and try out your gear on a small low ropes course.

Each course will take you approximately 30 minutes to complete – give or take fitness levels and if you get stuck behind a slower going group.

The main obstacle courses at Aventura explained

When you enter the park you would have been issued with a coloured wrist band, this dictates which courses you can do:

  • Green – Rangers
  • Blue – Rangers & Explorador
  • Red – Rangers, Explorador, Aventura & Thriller
  • Black – Explorador, Aventura, Thriller & Extreme

Rangers – Min. 1.15m | 19 challenges | 1.5m to 2m Circuit Height

These are great beginner courses that can be tackled by all the family when you’re just getting started out. Children need to be able to independently handle their equipment then climb, crawl and zipline around the obstacles.

Explorador – Min 1.25m | 17 challenges | 2m to 4m Circuit Height

A medium difficulty circuit for parents and children to tackle together – or more confident children can tackle alone. There’s a variety of suspended bridges and zip lines to try.

Aventura – Min 1.4m | 15 challenges | 2m to 8m Circuit Height

The challenges increase in difficulty and include rope wall climbs and suspended aerial bridges without hand support. This is much more challenging than Explorador – beginners should look to tackle this first to get their confidence and skills up. You will be up to 8m off the ground.

Thriller – Min 1.4m | 15 challenges | 5m to 10m Circuit Height

If ziplining is your thing, this is the one for you! Soar over the treetops of Mushrif Park as you take on 15 ziplines, including the longest in the park at 160m. This one is less physically challenging than Extreme but it more than makes up for it in thrills.

Extreme – Min 1.6m/16-years-old | 16 challenges | 3.5m to 9m Circuit Height

The most challenging at Aventura Park, the black Extreme course includes a 25-metre Tarzan jump, suspended aerial bridges without side support and zip lines. This one is only for your adventure junkies as it’s very high off the ground (5m to 9m) and is super challenging, therefore a 1.6-metre limit applies and only those over 16 years of age. {NB Extreme isn’t available on One Circuit Experiences}

More frequently asked questions about Aventura Park

What should I wear to Aventura Dubai?

It’s sensible to dress in closed-toed shoes with good grip and in activewear ready for strenuous physical activity – preferably knees covered as there’s a bit of scrambling involved.

Ladies or those with long hair are advised to bring a hair tie.

What do I need to bring with me to Aventura Parks?

All your safety and harness equipment is provided by Aventura Parks.

We’d strongly suggest bringing a large water bottle with you. There are refill stations of fresh water located around the course but no cups. You may also want to throw in a few energy bar/snacks in your pocket, 2.5 hours around the course can be hungry work!

There are lockers on-site to leave your valuables, you won’t have the option of carrying a bag around with you.

What if we have members of our group not participating?

Non-participants can join the nature trail, or they can wait for your while enjoying refreshments at Chris Cafe. Parents can supervise around the foot of the course should they wish for a park entry free 10 AED.

Are the courses fully supervised?

There are experienced staff on hand to help if you are stuck or in trouble, but they will not walk through the whole course with you. It’s expected after you complete the training you will be sent to the right course for your height/age group/experience level and complete the course independently.

They certainly give extra attention to the Rangers and beginners, but it is best for an adult to accompany younger children to help them through at ground level. If you are stuck you can shout HELP and staff will come and attend as soon as possible.

The Park meets EU safety regulations (EN15567) and all staff are first aid trained.

Can I bring my GoPro?

There’s no problem bringing a GoPro or action camera to record your adventure. You’re advised to bring a chest strap rather than anything you need to hold onto and it must not interfere with your safety harness. You can tag your pictures #aventuraparks #libredxb
