Poor - have been here many times before but the facilities were chaotic and the amount of activities have reduced even though the prices have gone up significantly! Poor queing systems too - chaos! Spent £200 and was worth £50 at best - will not be rushing back which is a shame as the concept is fantastic, just poorly executed... More

Probably my best activity done on this trip if not for the cold!!!! I was really amazed at how realistically cold it was. It felt like winter!!! The rides and stuff were super cool. We couldn't stay long enough to do it all though.....like I said....chilly!!!!

Great experience. When it's 40 degrees outside go skiing where it's -2! We had a one hour discovery lesson. the tutor was great, about 10 people in the lesson on the nursery slope. As a first timer getting all the kit yourself was a little confusing but once sorted it's great. Wished we'd had more time there.

Off course you have to explore the snow when the temperature is 50c outdoors. You can borrow proper clothing before entering the cold area. Good fun.

Its kind of surreal to walk into this place when its 47 degrees outside. Actually its mind blowing if I am being honest, I have not skied in over 20 years so it took me a little while to get my groove back. It wasn't long before I was snow plugging and shooting my way around. We hired everything from... More

most unexpected pleasure on this trip to the desert! Imagine take an escalator while wearing your skis! The slope was great! I made about 15 runs in the early afternoon, and then went to the beach!

We return to our Ski combination without protection (no helmet or mask) my husband ask staff why do not we give of proctection to the head and face in children and adults there have responded that it was for those fesait skiing response bete their hand because skiing is ds the park so logically we should have protection. We make our entrance to the park in a comfortable and great combinations can for me the boy who had given me had me saying there was no y'en smaller. We return ds the park and begin to have fun to finally enjoy our honeymoon. 17:00 on fesant snowballs down the aisle after the sled I received a ball behind my being given too much and not looking where I was the foot I got myself under my left eye touched a square iron bar and pointed tip my left eye blood flowed and I was opening my eyelid 5 cm.

INTOLERABLE service did not contact ambulance assistance or doctor my husband had to take me to the hospital in a taxi while my eye ran skiing just put us dressings and give a number without providing any help that which is INTOLERABLE !!!!!!! Arriving at the hospital a doctor supported me when I tell what is passing he said that it was unacceptable from the ski did not give us protection being told that there have dangerous object inside the park and it could injure children and adults it was even more shocked when he saw lying on the report and not even had the good heart to call an ambulance He examined my eyes and found I needed two emergency operations and an eye assessment: - one for plastic surgery because I had a hole 5 cm on the left eyelid - one for sutures points Total 4 2 2 internal external costs of 12000 dirhams operation !!! We were on honeymoon we do not have the money !! My husband contacted the ski several times without reply 30 minutes later we had a call the doctor explained their response and the amount that you could not pay their response was if you can not pay to keep your dressing and when you Dakar will return you pay for the operation! I quite like her soufrais he offered us any help I was shot down My husband called the family has dakar and he explained send us the sum request via a transfer service so I had to stay two hours a wait because my husband conaissait dubai is not just happened we had to get the money My husband saw back towards 22.00 (I'm the accident 17:00 4h time I ds patient waiting room) 23:00 have to prepare myself my husband had the operation to recover the sum operation lasted 45 min local anesthetic eye open I pray to God to help me because I soufrais terribly I left with stitches and drug and a mandatory bedtime j ' had an appointment the next day so the first day doctor dubai nightmarish!
