1. Ferrari World’s Friends & Family Pass offer is back until October 20, which means that if you bring along three or more of your friends or family members you can enjoy the park’s daredevil rides at a discounted rate – bronze tickets start from Dh220 per ticket when booked online, whereas a one day pass usually costs Dh275. Better still, the Friends and Family Pass lets kids below the age of three and a nanny enter for free. Visit ferrariworldabudhabi.com.

2. The cold never bothered you anyway? Ski Dubai’s annual Ice Warrior Challenge is on October 6. The charity event is raising proceeds for Noor Dubai and will put your stamina to the test with an obstacle course that will see you crawling over a cargo net, swinging over monkey bars, winding your way through a zorb ball maze and clearing a tire course, all in the rather chilly temperature of -4° C. Winners take home 125,000 Emirates Skywards Miles and other prizes. For 16 years plus only; tickets cost Dh250 per person; visit premieronline.com.

3. If you’d rather watch stunts than perform feats of derring-do yourself, head to Nitro Circus Live on October 6 at Yas Marina Circuit. An international line-up of over 30 action sports athletes from disciplines like freestyle motocross (FMX), BMX and more will do backflips and acrobatics on motorbikes, including riding off the 40-foot Giganta Ramp. Tickets start from Dh250 at tixbox.com.
