Cocoon to Butterfly clan checked out the new kids entertainment venue at DFC. We walked in to discover the destination is spanning across a massive 70,000sqf with a variety of arcade games, fun-filled rides, redemption games, art game machines, soft play area, attractions for teenagers, also a concept that combines entertainment with physical activities for children and toddlers.
What the kids loved - The state-of-the-art Clip and Climb climbing wall (It cost AED 15 for 15 mins). My boys each had 2 turns in this area and could not get enough of it. They also loved all the redemption games (approximately AED 7 a game) which they were of-course indulging to amass tickets. Football pitch was also a big favorite as my lil tribe are all big into the game of football. My oldest enjoyed the bumper cars very much(the younger ones were sad as they were not allowed due to height restrictions)
What could improve - I found the space to be understaffed. When we looked at redeeming gifts for all the points accumulated, we discovered there was no one manning the redemption counter. A few rides were not manned as well, hence we had to wait for a staff to finish with one game booth to attend to us at the other. However, i found the staff to be pleasant, they were quick to apologize and heeded to the rescue.
Faby land offers attractive birthday packages that vary based on what suits you (starting price AED 65 a kid) .The expansive area appears hygienic and clean, which is a big plus considering the other play areas on offer in Dubai (yes! i am that mom that scrutinizes the surfaces and sanitizes the kids after play) . One major attraction for me is the fact that this space is not crowded with kids running at you and pushing and shoving at each other (the space probably did not appear crowded to me due to the fact that the venue is so massive, whatever the case, that is a huge plus for the destination) There is a feeling of spacious, fresh and airy ambiance in this space and I love the fact that people are not brushing against me and my kids in an entertainment zone - Now they’ve won me over with that!
