It’s back! Mercato Mall’s giant slide is here again.

The monster mirthmaker is at the mall in Jumeirah Beach Road until 3rd August.

Arriving as part of Dubai Summer Surprises celebrations, the huge slide takes shoppers on a wacky ride between the mall’s first and ground floors.

The attraction on a converted escalator made its debut in 2018, where it took kids little and large (OK, that was us) into a pool of brightly-coloured balls (pictured).

Want to get involved? Don’t forget to wear socks, as they’re compulsory for riders. Otherwise, the slide is completely free for everyone to use, providing you meet the minimum height requirement (we asked what this is, but the information wasn’t available, so check with the mall before you travel).

Mercato Mall has a ton of other ways to keep us entertained over the summer months  – acrobatics and entertainers from The Chapito Circus perform three times a day (except Sundays) until 29th July. Catch them at 4pm, 6.30pm and 9pm.

Circus workshops, Chris the juggler from Mexico and Italian magician Jacopo fill up the schedule through to August.

The 22nd edition Dubai Summer Surprises began on 21st June, bringing bargains to the city’s shops, attractions, hotels and tons of family entertainment – and usually a pretty spectacular brace of fireworks displays too! 

Here’s what else you’ll want to add to your shopping list with our bargain-packed guide to DSS.

Slide open daily from 10am. Dubai Summer Surprises at Mercato Mall, Jumeirah Beach Road, until 3rd August. For dates and times of performers, see or call 04 344 4161.
