Wild wadi

On Fridays and Saturdays throughout October, as well as on Halloween, Wild Wadi is trick-or-treat central. You and your family are invited to take part in a treasure hunt for sweets at seven different locations around the park. Tickets are set slightly higher than usual at AED 310 for people over 1.1 metres and AED 260 for anyone under. Once you pay for the tickets you’ll be given a map of where to look for the sweets, but be careful of the spooky surprises on the way.


Halloween Bash at Wafi

This is the perfect event for all the family. If you head down to Wafi Mall in your scariest costumes, not only could you be in with a chance to win AED 1,000 for best costumes, but you’ll also find trick-or-treating, spooky storytelling, costume competitions, arts and crafts, and face painting to take part in. And Wafi dares you to take selfies with the scary characters that will be creeping around – snap a shocker, and you could win Wafi vouchers and cash prices worth up to AED 2,000.


Flip Out

Why not do something a bit different this Halloween and visit a trampoline park which has been transformed into a haunted house? Flip Out in Al Quoz is promising you a scarefest like no other, packed with thrills and chills. Head down on Thursday 26 and Tuesday 31. If you arrive in fancy dress, you’ll automatically get a free extra hour, and there’s awesome prizes up for grabs. And if you’re not into dressing up, it’ll only cost you AED 80 per hour.
