HUB ZERO – LIVE THE GAME Place where all feel young & energetic

A visit to one of the most amazing place on the earth. Recently I had visited a theme park named “HUB ZERO – LIVE THE GAME” during our Dubai tour. Now let me tell you from the beginning. It was our summer vacation, I and my friends were planning to do something thrilling and adventurous, so we came up to this new place in Dubai named HUB ZERO – LIVE THE GAME. As the title states that it has a totally different zone where you can actually live what you normally see in game. We went to the venue; it is located at City Walk in Dubai.

We bought the passes and entered the virtual zone of the gaming world. It has different categories of games whether it is for a kid or an adult. Mainly there were games based on Warfare and some action movies like Resident Evil etc.

Starting from the very first game called the “VIRTUAL ARENA” which was a totally new experience where they give 3D glasses and a Gun to kill the zombies. Yes you heard it right KILLING THE ZOMBIES, it’s like once the game starts you felt the horror of the zombies and once they start coming out of the house you start shooting them with the virtual gun. You actually feel the scratch on your face when they hit you. Awesome sound effects and 3D experience where you live the actual experience of the game during dubai tour packages.

Then moving to another game, we were now even more excited to play new stuff. Moving on to the new zone called “HERO ZONE VERTICAL ADVENTURE”. In this zone they have all the practical games, basically all the adventure games like Rock climbing, rope way and many more. At first we felt like it’s not that hard or scary as the name states. But trust me once we begin to play we had a totally different opinion about the stuff they had. Rock climbing was quite fun. Then we went to the pole climbing where you are given a harness and they tie you with a rope and then you start climbing on the poles one by one till you reach the highest pole.

Things To Do in Dubai

Then we moved on to another game named “BATMAN Experience”. Initially it looked very easy but once I reached the top and then when I had to jump to catch the hanger. But then somehow I gathered the courage ( thanks to my friends who were cheering me up and also the staff of that zone even they started cheering me ) and I jumped.Trust me it was truly a BATMAN JUMP when he tries to get away from the prison in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.

This place has definitely a lot to offer with numerous games for all the adventure lovers. A must visit from my side if you ever visit Dubai tours from Mumbai.

TOP 5 ways to remain TROUBLE-RESISTANT during your monsoon travel!

Can you resist traveling when monsoon spins the best of its magic and makes the world look like a gorgeous miracle? Velvety green landscapes to soothe your senses; dense clouds to make the scene look fairytale-ish; rain drops to stir a moist aroma in the air; gushing waterfalls, rushing rivers and the roaring oceans – can the traveler in you really keep away from feeling awakened and wooed? Nah! “But then, a monsoon travel comes with its own tricky side.” Oh yes, we know that. And, that’s why these smart travel tips from Flamingo for your hassle-free monsoon voyage!

Internatinal Tour Packages

1. MONSOON DRESS CODE – keep it sensible, keep it practical.

Let the common sense guide the fashion lover in you! Avoid wearing light colored clothes during international trip as they tend to look dirty a lot quicker in this typically wet and messy weather. Carry some synthetic clothes as they dry out faster in case if you happen to get drenched. They won’t stink when you pack them back in a short time. Long sleeved tops and bottoms made out of comfortable and quick-to-dry material will protect you from dirty water, mosquitoes and other insects.

Tour & Travel

2. A small list of ‘Don’t’s to avoid health hazards

  • Don’t drink water if you aren’t confident about its quality. Go for sealed bottled mineral water. Or, boil the water before you drink if mineral water bottles are not available. You can also carry the water purifying tablets; they might make the water taste a little weird but that’s better than falling sick!
  • Don’t feel tempted to eat food that’s kept uncovered for too long in public spaces. Avoid eating sliced fruits and random cold drinks from roadside.
  • Don’t feel shy to carry a bit of your own home cooked food. You will thank yourself later!

Things to remember while traveling

3. Pack what’s practical, carry the monsoon essentials.

Along with the usual stuff like umbrellas, raincoats and monsoon footwear, also carry a few zip lock bags and silica bags – always handy to keep your valuables protected from water and moisture.  Carrying a torch, first aid kit and a mosquito repellent will make you a confident traveller during rainy days. A good book, cards and a few board games are always a good idea; just in case if you get stuck somewhere and venturing out gets delayed!

How to pack your items before traveling

4. Stay techno savvy.

Keep your Google Maps updated, GPS fully functioning and weather apps installed.  Keep yourself informed about the weather and road conditions of the area you are travelling to. A mobile charging bank is always a street smart thing to carry especially in this season.

Holidays with Family

5. Stay safe. Stay sensible.                      

Well, nothing wrong in dropping a text to your family or friends telling them about the details of location on everyday basis. Yes, you have weather apps and all but nothing can beat the unpredictability of nature this season. In case of land-slides, storms or heavy rains, your folks got to know where to look for you to help, just in case!
