Dubai Sport – travel guide – Teletext Holidays298
Big, brash and bold, Dubai has cemented its reputation as a holiday spot where anything and everything is possible.
In the next few years, visitors to Dubai will be able to enjoy the kind of family attractions that may put the likes of Orlando firmly in the shade. The snow dome and indoor ski slope are up and running and the rulers of Dubai are planning to spend £2 billion on the construction of Sports City, a complex which will sit within a gigantic area known as Dubailand.
Sports City will incorporate a Manchester United soccer school, a Formula One theme park in 2009, a second indoor ski dome, and a life-sized replica of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
There’s also Wild Wadi, one of the most advanced water theme parks ever designed. It has an Arabian folklore theme and some of the highest and fastest water rides outside of North America. Try Jumeirah Sceirah, which drops you 108ft at 50 miles per hour.
