Dubai dazzles on TravelCube’s theme park famil

If you’re looking for expert advice on Dubai’s celebrated theme parks there’s only one person you need to ask – Sydney travel agent and TravelCube incentive winner Barry Warner.

A self-described “theme park junkie” Barry, the co-founder of Sydney’s Planetdwellers, was the first Australian to notch up 250 paying visits to Disneyland in Anaheim, where his name adorns a brick in New Orleans Square. In 1996 he was also the first Australian to dine in the park’s invitation-only restaurant Club 33, with John Howard, then Prime Minister, being the second.

After visiting Dubai’s expanding range of attractions while visiting the emirate for the first time this month on a five-night luxury TravelCube and Dubai Tourism famil, he summed up the destination in one word: “phenomenal”.

“Bollywood Parks is the stand-alone best entertainment theme park I’ve seen in terms of shows, Legoland Dubai is so clean and well laid out and the Aquaventure deserves its tag as one of world’s best water parks,” he says. “I also visited the Hollywood-inspired Motiongate Dubai twice and was the first person to try both of its new Hunger Game rides.”

Warner was one of ten top-selling travel agents invited on the luxurious Arabian adventure following TravelCube’s recent ‘Dubai on Sale’ incentive.

The group flew Emirates to Dubai , stayed at the five-star Taj Hotel and the JA Oasis Beach Tower at the Marina, and experienced just a fraction of the more than 190 sightseeing options TravelCube now offers in the city.

TravelCube Marketing Manager Jenny Dazeley, who co-hosted the group, says Dubai is one of the company’s fastest growing destinations for accommodation and ground services.

“Travel agents know to come to us now for our 24 hour check-in hotels, however, it’s the luxury services we offer, such as airport lounges, helicopter rides over the city and the opportunity to dine at places like the Burj Al Arab, that are really driving growth,” says Dazeley.

Warner says one of the most surprising experiences available to visitors is the lavish brunches that Dubai hotels put on for guests each Friday.

“Australians all know about the dune driving, the Bedouin camps and the world-class shopping, but what they might not know is that on Fridays every major hotel that has a bar offers these indulgent food experiences, which can be themed for different groups such as families and singles,” he says.  “We were fortunate enough to experience the ‘Wanderlust Brunch’ at the JW Marriot Marquis which was simply out-of-this-world.

“It is just one of the things I didn’t expect from a destination that has so much more to offer than people think”.
