Massive airship soars over Dubai

Published on: 21 Oct 2021

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? It’s GVWow! Dubai residents stared spellbound at the skies above where a massive airship beckons spectators to “the heart of wonder” starting on October 26. Global Village, the UAE and wider region’s leading multicultural family destination for culture, shopping, and entertainment, partnered with Skydive Dubai to fly one of six and the largest hot air airships in the world to celebrate the upcoming start of Season 26.

The partnership between Global Village and Skydive Dubai started during Season 25 when the park treated visitors to a rare and spectacular showcase to mark its silver jubilee season finale. The park achieved a new Guinness World Record title with 20 skydivers jumping from an altitude of more than 4,570 meters, lighting the skies with 78 fireworks representing 78 cultures that were present at Global Village during its 25th season, and breaking the Guinness World Record title for “highest altitude fireworks display”.

Residents and visitors of Dubai can still enjoy the spectacular view of the airship flying above the city until Season 26 opening day on Tuesday, October 26, 2021. We have heard that the airship will be transporting some very special guests after opening, but that’s a story for another day…
