Scare yourself at Hysteria and check out the city's new brunches

DAILY
Brace Yourself for Hysteria

Hysteria is the first haunted-house attraction in the Middle East, located inside a mysterious mansion within The Dubai Mall. This experience is best suited to people who aren't afraid of ghosts, or watching films like The Conjuring. The manor features dark rooms and corridors, floors that move and shake beneath your feet, freaky characters that pop out of unexpected corners, and cold chambers that induce claustophobia. Yikes! This haunted house is so scary that no one below the age of 14 is allowed inside without an adult. We're going to bring our parents anyway. Perhaps our teddy bears too. INFO: 10am-12midnight, Dhs100, opposite Reel Cinemas, The Dubai Mall, facebook.com/hysteriadubai
