Submerge yourself underwater with sharks

Because looking into the Dubai Aquarium just isn’t the same as jumping in with the sharks and stingrays. You may already know that if you have a certified PADI license, you can go diving in the giant fish tank, but did you know that anybody can cage snorkel? Time to come face-to-face with a Sand Tiger Shark?

Human Waterfalls

A breathtaking water feature that leaves spectators staring at the water cascades that traverses all the four levels of the mall. Embellished with artistic fiberglass sculptures of human divers, your blissful shopping spree becomes an epic sightseeing adventure.

Dubai Dino Parks

For all the budding paleontologists who cannot stop raving about the prehistoric creatures and their adventures in the Jurassic Park movie, this is one of the must-visit attractions in The Dubai Mall. Located in the heart of The Souk, visitors can view the 155-million-year-old dinosaur skeleton which is on permanent display. The prehistoric dinosaur remains belong to the late Jurassic period’s Diplodocus longus species, characterized by an endless whip-like tail, long slender neck and small head. This is also one of the things to do for free in The Dubai Mall.
