Ski Dubai was a big draw card for visiting Dubai, without which, we would not have stopped over for more than a night. And it was not to disappoint! 200 AED for 2hrs seems quite a lot to pay until you realise... You're skiing in a freaking mall! I've skied Canada and Switzerland and wasnt expecting much from this but... More

Ski Dubai is one of most recommended places in Dubai, I have been twice to this place, its more fun in high summer, when there is heat outside and you are inside and you are freezing inside, it has some excellent rides, the chair lift is most popular and universal type, even a simple walk through the place is fun....

They provide you will a suit, shoes and socks but you have to purchase hats and gloves seperate. It was really expensive... More

The kids will love this. It feels as though you skiing in Switzerland. Great rides and entertainment for all. And this is all inside a shopping mall.

Amazing experience of -3 degree Celsius in the middle of hot summer. I am a Gulf country resident. Thus, it was a pleasant change for me. We got to see penguin show. It was very cute and professionally done. I would say most rides are meant for kids. For adults, major attraction is skiing and chair lift. Overall, a good... More

too expensive for the experience provided. Just go for the zip line and come back. For more the price you dont get the fun factor of wild wadi or desert safaris.
