The capital is gearing up for this exciting challenge

Prison Island – Beat the Bars will open soon at Abu Dhabi Mall.

Immersive, interactive, and downright adrenaline-packed – that is Abu Dhabi’s latest attraction in a nutshell. Entitled Prison Island – Beat the Bars, the series of 26 exciting challenges will soon open its doors at Abu Dhabi Mall, making for an experience unlike anything else in the capital. Calling for quick thinking, sharp logic and (most importantly) teamwork, they’re suitable for all ages and set in imaginative cells within an enormous 1,000-square-metre complex.

Prison Island

Prison Island will require teammates to use all their skills and talents to solve puzzles, collect points and work together as a team to complete this other-worldly adventure. Ranked according to difficulty (physique, tactics or technique), every cell is worth a different number of points. Incidentally, each challenge is based around its own distinct theme, with special effects and incredible designs that are set to transport teams into an unforgettable alternative reality. Participants are sure to be utterly enraptured as they immerse themselves in solving cells like The Vault, Tilt, Cliffhanger, Tower, Flash Dance and many more fun, engaging activities.

Prison Island

Prison Island was inspired by the hit TV shows Fort Boyard and The Crystal Maze and, with a capacity to host up to 120 players and 22 teams of up to six people at any one time, is set to become one of the top must-try experiences in Abu Dhabi – whether you’re on the lookout for a family-friendly outing or a team-building activity. The attraction will open in January 2022, with hourly prices starting from AED 125 for adults and AED 105 for kids. Ahead of the much-anticipated opening, visitors to Abu Dhabi Mall are encouraged to enter a competition to win an exclusive experience. To take part, all they need to do is take a mugshot at the Prison Island wall and post it on social media, tagging @prisonisland.abudhabi
