Dubai Garden Glow Season 7 Kicks Off

by Eddie Rayner

Dubai Garden Glow, the world’s largest unique theme park, kick-started its seventh season on 1 November with many new concepts and attractions for the glow-in-dark garden.

After the whopping success of the previous six seasons, this year’s theme is ‘Glowing Safari’, where visitors will be enthralled by innovatively recreated wildlife. It will be a unique Safari trek in the Glow Park with incandescent animals all around, a colourful flower valley with dynamic, moving blossoms, and a glittering butterfly trail using 10 million energy-saving bulbs.

The Glow Park, a neon wonderland, will take the visitor from an information age to an entertainment age. The whole garden has been put together manually and adorned with handmade lights. The unique, environmentally-friendly models are artfully constructed, focusing specifically on delivering encounters that visitors will remember forever.

The Art Park, which has been constructed using recycled material around the theme of ‘Back to Nature’, is an attempt to drive home the message of conservation. It is surrounded by wildlife installations made of used materials such as bottles and CDs. The eco-friendly Art Park seamlessly pulls together the different notes of happiness, cultural values, beliefs and identity, creating an overall paradise of all colours of life.

The Magic Park presents a world of mesmerising optical illusions. This unique artform uses geometric shapes to create hypnotic optical effects, creating a mysterious relationship between what the human brain understands and what our eyes are capable of seeing. This magical world will surprise and inspire everyone’s imaginations to run wild along with photo-worthy content across different categories. The Magic Park overall creates a world of visual, sensual and educational adventure.

It has several educational stops, including a Dino museum.
