Dubai Festival City Mall to launch multi-purpose attraction ‘The Arch’

Dubai Festival City Mall is set to launch The Arch on November 6, a giant multi-purpose attraction by Warrior Group and Al Laith, featuring an adventure park with various activities.

During Phase 1, four activities are available on the Arch – a climbing wall, zip line, bag jump and quick flight. Participants will fly through the air on a 230m zip-line, taking in the surrounding views.

The climbing wall consists of five different routes to choose from, for both beginner and experienced level climbers. Finally, guests will experience the thrill of leaping through the air from platforms of four our six metres onto a giant inflatable bag.

The Arch will be opening as part of DTCM’s Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC), an annual celebration of all thing’s fitness and wellness. This year’s event kicks off across the city on October 30 and runs until November 28, with the Arch opening on November 6.  

For the period of the event, Dubai Festival City Mall will also be hosting four fitness activity zones in the fitness village – football, basketball, pump track and a workout stage.

Ahmed Al Khaja, CEO of Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE) says: “The Dubai Fitness Challenge is designed to give all people of the city a springboard into being more active. We are excited to amplify this spirit even further this year, working closely with our partners to once again transform the city into an outdoor adventure playground.”

“An action-packed calendar of thrilling new activities and fun challenges are set to inspire all residents and visitors to embrace a happier and healthier lifestyle and help everyone find the motivation to complete their 30 minutes of daily, physical activity.”

Visitors during Dubai Fitness Challenge will be able to try the attraction completely free. The Arch will operate in line with strict adherence to all government regulations and guidelines to ensure the safety of all visitors and employees.
