Get ready to experience The Dubai Fountain in a brand new way.

Emaar Properties, the multinational real estate development company that built the fountain, has announced the launch of The Dubai Fountain Water Experiences. Located in the extension of The Dubai Fountain, adjacent to The Dubai Mall, the new attraction gives visitors the chance to partake in four fun-filled activities, including a children’s boating activity, a family boating experience, a kayaking adventure and a floating garden.

Something for all

Visitors can choose between motorized and pedal boats which are in the shape of greater-than-life and Instagram-friendly swans. The new activity will give them the freedom to spend half an hour exploring the Dubai Fountain.

Meanwhile, teenagers, fitness enthusiasts and adrenaline junkies can get specially crafted kayaks, including transparent ones, and water bikes.

The Floating Garden can be tried out by those looking for an experience closer to land, an attraction that aims to highlight the flowers loved by people in the country.

Finally, children can also make a splash with the Birds Cove. Those aged 3 and above will be able to choose between a combination of motorized and pedal boats in the shapes of birds like ducks and flamingos as they explore The Dubai Fountain.

The Swan Family Boat rates start from $13.61 per person for a half an hour ride. Meanwhile, Kayaking Adventure rates start at $20.42 per person and for half an hour, the water bikes go for $13.61 per person.

Prices for the Kids & Toddlers Experiences start with the Flamingos Boat at $10.89 and the Ducks Boats at $12.25. The Dubai Fountain Water Experiences are open daily from noon to 8PM, with the last entry to the attraction being 7.30PM.
