The Month of Strange at WAFI

Trick or treating, costume competitions, creepy menus and much more to explore!

It’s the #MonthOfStrange at WAFI and visitors can expect all things creepy as part of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! This month sees more chances to win, have fun and play games as we get ready for Halloween as well as strange treats from your favourite Wafi Restaurants.

As part of the #MonthOfStrange, we’re celebrating everything spooky with the return of ‘WAFI’s Halloween Bash’. Get dressed up for this year’s costume competition for a chance to win cash prizes as well as join the trick or treating across WAFI. It’s not just about dressing scarily this month, participants will also be judged based on the weirdest ideas in line with #RipleysatWAFI. Mark your calendars for the 26th and 27th October, because this party is going to be loaded with activities, photo opportunities and a whole lot of fun. The Halloween Bash will take place from 2pm until 7pm on both days and children can enjoy arts & crafts, face painting and ghoulish games as well as entering the costume competition.

Wafi Restaurants are offering some surprises this month, the highlight being the ‘tasting strange’ menu at Asha’s. Foodie fanatics can enjoy a Halloween-savvy and Ripley’s inspired menu at Asha’s where they will find all things weird in the form of camel biryani, frog legs and black butter chicken. These creepy specials will be available from 7th October – 7th November as part of WAFI’s #MonthOfStrange.

“The Month Of Strange at WAFI brings an experience for our visitors, be it an uncanny menu, our Halloween Bash or the ongoing exhibition. Ripley’s has been extremely successful since the day we opened doors and the aim of this month is to give our visitors a little more to come back for. We have some spooky competitions on our social media, a creepy menu at Asha’s and our Halloween Bash is returning for a weekend of fun for everyone. If you haven’t visited the weird and wonderful exhibits at Ripley’s, please do so as soon as possible. It’s free for all and thoroughly enjoyable for people of all ages” said Katherine Revett, Head of Central Marketing.

ARTE The Makers’ Market will also be back at WAFI on 27th October offering customers a selection of unique handmade products of all kinds and Halloween specials from 10am to 8pm. The Light and Sound Show has returned and is showing, 'A Celebration of the UAE', which will certainly delight the visiting audience. Celebrating the spirit of the UAE, the history, culture and bright future of the nation comes to life across the Pyramids building in the central courtyard. Shows are playing every evening at 7.30pm, 8.30pm and 9.30pm and are free for public enjoyment.

With all the fun at WAFI, it is surely the place to be this month. For more information, customers can visit
