    Nice
    Very nice. It is worth visiting, especially if you have children. It's like a fairy tale world. If you already have a ticket bought online, it can be reached from Dubai Frame, crossing through Zabeel Park and over a footbridge that crosses the road. Also here is a park with dinosaurs, made (probably...) realistically. There are several kiosks and small terraces where you can drink something (of course, without alcohol) or have a snack. But beware of merchants! Some, seeing you as a foreign tourist, ask for higher prices for juice/snacks. They asked me 20AED for a juice that I bought for 10AED from a kiosk located 150m away. Quite crowded, many families with children, especially locals.

    Best hangout place for kids
    Dubai Garden Glow is a unique theme park and the largest glow-in-the-dark garden famous for its vibrant themes .We had a wonderful time at the Dubai garden glow.My son enjoyed the dinosaur park very much. The entire experience was great and they have plenty of restaurants. This is a must visit place with kids during the winter. I highly recommend

    Worth a visit
    An interesting walk with some fun things to see. The tickets are the same price at the gate and online, 70AED for dinosaurs+lights but be prepared to insist on this ticket or you will be charged 115AED including the magic room. The magic room is just not as interesting as the rest of the park. Avoid the pushy food and beverage vendors, especially at the front of the park. If you're travelling, this attraction is probably not high on your list, but if you're local it's worthwhile.

    Ok for kids.
    I was a little disappointed with these gardens. We got persuaded to pay extra and do the magic room/area. This is basically an illusion set of set ups. If you’ve already done that elsewhere then I wouldn’t bother doing it. The garden itself is large-ish but I found the lights quite tacky. I was expecting something like the Kew Gardens in the UK at Christmas but this wasn’t that. There were some lovely animals lite up which was the best bit. I think the taxis outside (if they aren’t the usual cream taxis) are a rip off. If you have kids upto the age of 5-ish then it’s decent otherwise don’t bother.

    Lovely evening spent in Garden Glow
    A really nice evening for families. I went solo and did enjoy it but it's difficult taking selfies all the time. Also, if you get the full ticket, it includes the magic park, which has some great optical illusion rooms. I had to get one of the staff to take loads of pictures, which she did happily. Thank you for that. There's quite a few food carts as well in case you need something to eat. Worth a visit

    Mixed reviews...
    We had a very mixed experience, we booked our tickets online for the Dubai Garden Glow which also included the dinosaur Park, we really just wanted to go for the Dubai Garden Glow. On arrival to the front desk at the park, the female was quite pushy when it came to upselling us two tickets for the Magic Park. She told us that this was the main bit of the park and was a 'must see' and 'not to be missed', as we didn't know any better or what this was and she seemed adamant we would be missing out if we didn't pay her an extra 90 AED for the tickets we decided to give it a go. Safe to say this was extremely dissapoint and absolutely not worth the money whatsoever, we were in and out within 5 minutes it was that bad, a really dissapointing 'attraction' if it can be called that. We then went around the Glow Garden which is what we really wanted to see and it was amazing, clearly a lot of effort has gone it to it and the lights were really impressive. On exiting the park we spoke with the same female who upsold us the magic park tickets and stated how severly dissapointing we were with the magic park and asked for our money back (for the magic park only, not the whole attraction) as this is what she upsold us with false hopes and claims. She stated as we had been inside the magic park and effectively l used the tickets she could not refund the money. This unfortunately put a downer on what would have been an amazing visit to a very impressive attraction. Visit Garden Glow, DO NOT visit Magic Park unless you want to be disappointed.

    Great evening, fantastic lights but pushy food stall vendors
    The actual Dubai Garden Glow is fantastic, the dinosaurs look very real and what a view of Dubai walking around. The lights were spectacular.. make sure you take your walking shoes as there is lots to see when it comes to the lights. The only thing that put us off and why I'm giving it a slightly lower view is the constant pestering as you walk past the food stalls...to get to the dinosaur park you have to walk past them all and every single member of each food stall is very full on and in your face about buying their food. You then have to walk past them again to get back to the lights and despite only walking past less than hour before the same staff get in your face and pushy about buying food. We took the little train around the park and even sat on the train they are shoving food menus in your face it was horrible and stressful. We did stop to get an ice cream and they man gave us 3 different prices and then tried to short change me. Only downside, be prepared it was really not something i expected from this park but the experience of the lights after thankfully made us forget.

    Dubai Garden Glow: Magical Experience
    Visiting Dubai Garden Glow was a magical experience. The illuminated art installations, vibrant lights, and creative sculptures transformed the park into a whimsical wonderland. The themed sections, including the glowing dinosaurs and enchanting Ice Park, added to the charm, making it a memorable evening of enchantment and creativity.

Got 10 tickets from a tourism company. A one time visit spot specially for the teens & people above 20 years of age. Dinosaur park is a bit attractive for the children but should be visited before the dark to enjoy the sights of the dinosaurs. The visitors are not allowed to get near to the dinosaurs so those are only to make selfies or videos from far.
The garden glow park is an average place to visit with lots of lights arranged in different ways. Even the selfie lovers cannot take good pics due to angles & colors of lights. Food is expensive and food & beverages from outside are not allowed as other parks.
Overall it is an average place to visit. The tickets are high in price as compared to the facility it self so it is no value for money. The tickets should be no more than 15 dirham for the place.

The Dubai Garden Glow is an amazing place with a park theme dedicated to light displays. The ticket costing AED 110 also includes the Dinosaur Park & Ice Park. One can also include the magic park for additional AED 30. The dinosaur park is alright & good for kids. The ice park is small with limited exhibits but world a visit. The main highlight however is the glow garden. The various displays & light shows just amazes you. Our 2 year old daughter just enjoyed the various themes around cartoon characters.

The glow garden consists of 3 separate attractions, the illuminated glow park, the dino park, and the magic park. The glow Park and Dino Park are covered, and the magic park is under a separate add-on ticket. When purchasing the tickets, the seller automatically added the additional magic park ticket, which I didn't really need.

The Dubai glow park is fairly reasonably priced, although it doesn't have the same polished finish as Dubai's premium attractions.

Firstly, they need to deal with the mosquitoes. There are clouds of mosquitoes present, which come out in force once it gets dark (when you naturally visit the glow park). There are large bodies of standing water here, paradise for mosquitoes, and it really impacts the enjoyment of the place - would strongly recommend wearing repellent if visiting!

The dino park is fun, automated life size dinosaurs, children will enjoy this. Best visited before it gets dark, so go there first.

Once it started to get dark, the glow park comes alive. Many illuminated displays, photo opportunities, and bonus views of the impressive One Zabeel building!

Lastly is the magic park. In my opinion, this is the least impressive of the attractions. Basically, it's a series of back painted displays for photo opportunities. Loads of people pushing to get their Instagram photos.

Food options are pretty average and generic, too, although it lends itself to a picnic, so it is probably better to bring snacks.

My advice is to take snacks and mosquito repellent and skip magic park.

Another creativity of Dubai. Back home in Sri Lanka we have a culture to for this lanterns and exabits in streets and parks for the month of May. Despite, this is another level. Creativity, beauty, concept, attractiveness is amazing. This is with another 3 more parks which are Art, Dinosaur and Magic. 3 parks are included in the tickets and for the Magic park you will have to pay extra. I don't really recommend as I felt it's not worth it and by the time you finish other 3 you are already very tired. But another must see place in UAE.

I went to Dubai Garden Glow with my husband and 2 year old son during the national day public holiday in 2020. We bought the ticket at the venue for 65 AED per person which included the Glow park and Dinosaur park. Kids under 3 years enter for free.

We started with the Dinosaur park. My son was very excited on seeing so many Dinosaurs roaring away. We then proceeded to the glow park. It was beautiful, definitely photo worthy.

I would say its only fun to go Dubai Garden Glow if you have kids or if you are an Instagram fan.

Buy your tickets online. If you buy them at the gate they will charge you double of the actual cost. Disappointing how they take advantage of people. Nice set up but not worth the amount we paid. The vendors inside are incredibly pushy as well.

My husband and I went to Garden Glow. Maybe we would have found it more exciting if we had children, but for us as adults, it was just okay.

There were a few different things to do. The Garden Glow itself it a bunch of lit up statues made of fabric and lit from within. It was pretty to see, but nothing special. There was a dinosaur area with big plastic dinosaur statues. They were cool to see.

My favourite part was Magic Park. It was a series of indoor rooms with different illusions in them where you can take pictures. For example, there was a room set up with all the furniture on the ceiling, so it looks like you are standing upside down. We had a lot of fun taking different pictures.

We did not do the ice park.

We spent about 1 hour here.

The was a decent attraction, but not one I would highly recommend. If you only have a couple of days in Dubai, I'd say maybe give this a pass.

Children and adults alike will enjoy the multitude of bright lights creating some impressive displays. The ice sculpture display costs extra and unlike most things in Dubai is a little underwhelming. The dinosaur park is worth a look although may not be suitable to younger children. A nice way to spend a couple of hours one evening.

We went there during November because the weather was nice at night.. the ticket is AED 65 and I paid the same as well for my 5 year old daughter! the admission lady offered to pay 35 more or something to see all 3 parks; glow park, dinosaur park and some magic illusions park, so I ended up paying around AED 100 per person for me, my wife and daughter.

Don't buy the magic park ticket since it was not nice and looked cheap.. dinosaur park is where you find dinosaurs making like real sounds and it was ok for my daughter.. the glow garden is basically lit sculptures for the fans of taking pics and Instagramers..

Once we were done, we went to the food stalls side and the options were limited and did not look nice..

Not recommended!
