Kidzania... I have heard about it. Is it really worth visiting with my 4 years old?

Most of these fun things to do with kids in Dubai cost an arm and a leg. What about free fun things to do with children in Dubai?
Besides the beach of course? :)
Regarding Wild Wadi and other aqua-parks I recommend everyone to go early in the morning when there are no lines - after 11 the lines are so long that you have to wait 20-30 minutes to just slide once.

One free fun thing my son did in Dubai last year - was playing with fountains on "Marina walk".

If you have some older kids, don't forget Paintball Dubai ;)
But I agree with Andyba, Dubai can be a very fun place, but you also need lots of $$$ to have fun. That's why so many people feel left out in the end.
