Global Village has racked up another record as part of its new season.
Back for its 25th iteration, the culture and shopping destination managed to achieve the quirky feat of creating the largest admission ticket of all time.
A Guinness World Record adjudicator was on site when a guest arrived with a giant ticket that stood 2.7 metres tall.
The latest achievement is the sixth of the planned 25 Guinness World Records Global Village is aiming for as part of its silver jubilee celebrations.
The first one was scored in roaring fashion on October 30 with the site hosting the "biggest virtual rock concert".
Large screens across Global Village showed more than 2,000 people strapping in their instruments from their homes for a streamed performance of classic rock tunes.
Global Village also broke the record for most LED lights ever on a car last month.
The next record attempt will be announced by Global Village in the near future.
Opening its gates on October 25, the enduring festival returned with its brand-new theme song by pop stars
RedOne and Ahlam, a massive fireworks display and a host of safety measures in place.
These included free face masks, thermal scanners and more than 600 sanitisation stations spread across the venue.
To drive the safety message home for young visitors, teddy bears instead of traditional signs and stickers have been deployed on seats to ensure social distancing in the children’s theatre.
Contactless payment procedures have also been implemented across all merchants and outlets at the park. Visitors are recommended to download GV Pay by Noqodi, the Global Village app that allows guests to purchase everything on-site through their phone.
The digital wallets can be refilled any time through the app, ultimately reducing queues and reliance on cash across the park.
Global Village will run until Sunday, April 18, 2021. Tickets are Dh15. Sundays to Wednesdays, 4pm-12am; Thursdays and Fridays, 4pm-1am; and Saturdays, 2pm-11pm. More information is available at globalvillage.ae Scroll through the gallery below to see more from this season of Global Village:
