A state-of-the-art indoor entertainment destination, Hub Zero will comprise a total of 18 attractions, rides and experiential zones, with a substantial number exclusively developed for the facility.UAE-based Meraas Holding has unveiled plans for Hub Zero, the region’s first immersive entertainment park which will come up at City Walk, a premier urban lifestyle destination spread over a 10-million-sq-ft area in Dubai.

Scheduled to open this summer, Hub Zero will offer innovative experiences created in association with world-famous video game developers including Electronic Arts, Capcom, Konami, Microsoft and Square Enix, says Meraas. It will be spread over an area of approximately 15,000 sq m on two floors and feature an extensive e-Sports LAN gaming zone and a children’s play area. Furthermore, the three Hub Zero event rooms will offer a unique setting for private celebrations and get-togethers.

Nestled between two of Dubai’s most prestigious neighbourhoods on Al Safa Street, in close proximity to Sheikh Zayed Road and Jumeirah Beach Road, City Walk is situated in a prime location offering an unobstructed view of Dubai’s skyline.

According to Meraas, City Walk will soon welcome over 60 new tenants this year including leading global brands as well as innovative home-grown enterprises. Over 50 per cent of the new tenants slated to launch in 2016 opened doors to visitors in February.

Complementing the new retail and dining offerings, City Walk is set to open doors to an array of leisure and entertainment choices, it states. This includes The Green Planet, the region’s first bio-dome recreating the enchanting world of a tropical forest with its rich biodiversity of over 3,000 plants and animals, and Mattel Play! Town, a magical, safe and interactive indoor ‘eduplay’ attraction themed around five popular children’s characters from Mattel, and Geek Nation, one of the leading destinations for comic, movie and video game lovers in the region.

Meraas says with the new additions, City Walk is set to comprise refined residential, entertainment, hospitality and wellness options in one integrated space.
