XLine Dubai at night
You and a friend can now soar past over the marina at night thanks to this limited time offer. As the world’s longest urban zip-line, you can race at breakneck speeds from 7pm onwards. OK, the AED850 price tag is slightly on the expensive side, but as well as a once in a life time thrill, you’ll also get a warm fuzzy feeling as proceeds go to Al Jalila Foundation medical research.

Dubai Sports World
With summer well and truly here, it’s tough to go out for any physical sporting activity without turning back around to bask in the A/C at home. Here’s an alternative before we all get too lazy and blame the heat, Dubai Sports World is offering an indoor and air-conditioned venue for three-months for everyone who enjoys playing sports. From football to badminton, you can book a pitch or a court with your mates regardless of your skill level. If you’re not quite a team player, you can always pop in and go for a run on the free running track or even have a go on the Ninja Warrior Obstacle course.
Where: Dubai World Trade Centre
When: Until September 8
Price: Free entry

Smash Room
If only our frustration with this year’s summer heat would evaporate too. While it’s not socially acceptable to go around smashing things in public, Smash Room has created a safe space to do just that. Items to destroy include old TVs, stereos and glass ware. Weapons include gold baseball bats, golf clubs and sledge hammers. Ps. if you bring your own items, it’s cheaper.
