For a different kind of thrill, get down to Dubai Creek Park today for the Red Bull Flugtag. It’s the first time since 2007 that the event has been held in Dubai, and with more than 30 teams from the UAE taking part, organisers are expecting it to be worth the wait.

Teams design and build a flying apparatus and then launch it off a ramp over the creek to see how far it flies. Teams are judged on flight distance, creativity of the craft and showmanship. The record for the longest flight is 78.64 metres, set in September 2013 at the Flugtag in Long Beach, California, by the team “The Chicken Whisperers”.

Gates open at 12pm and admission is free. Food and drinks will be available. Visit www.redbullflugtag.com/uae/en for more information.
