“loud place spoiling the mall”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Ok, I am anyway not abig fan of all this wintersports - thats why I never will visit Ski Dubai as well - but the worst point on this skating rink is that they have a lot loud shows there. It is sometimes so loud that you even do not understand a word if you are in a shop or restaurant of the other side of the corridor. It maybe funny for locals. I do not like it at all.

“Great venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The ice rink is the perfect size and right price. Can easily go here for an hour or 2 of skating on a Saturday afternoon.

“Ice skating in Dubai”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

If you want to be able to say you ice skated in Dubai go, otherwise don't waste your time. The "skates" which are more like rollerblades with a blade on the bottom of them are so uncomfortable compared to even normal rental ice skates I can't even explain it. How you are supposed to properly ice skate with your ankle immobilized, I'm not sure. Add a bunch of children that aren't being supervised with staff that barely try to enforce the rules and you have a mix of nothing but annoyances. I found drops of blood on the ice, I took time to find a staff member on the ice to alert them, in the US, they would have been immediately clear the ice of people and cleaned, at this rink, she took her time to saunter over to look at the blood with a 4yo in tow and I doubt anything was done, certainly not properly.

“worth an experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

This skating rink is located in the Dubai Mall itself.. if you know how to skate, it is a great fun loving place. I have done roller skating sometime in my life, but this was my first time Ice Skating experience and I enjoyed like anything. even though i fell a couple of times. but it was great fun.
if you want to learn from them, they charge you a bomb. but i think in some time you can manage to learn it by your self. The staff there does help you if you ask. they are all very friendly

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Olympic size ice rink in the mall. Wear footwear with socks, its mandatory.. Leave your bags, shopping bags in the car.. Theres a locker though, but its chargeable.. Get the right pair of skates. May want to try them out,be comfy before you enter.. There are instructors inside the rink who will help you initially... Trust the system, you will not fall. Even if you do, its ok.. No one has broken a bone in the history of the rink.. If your partner wants to ski n u wanna sit by the sidekines n watch, theres ample space.. Visit between 10am and 11am on weekdays, there wont be too much crowd.. For beginners, you can hold on to the side rails to get the momentum going.. 2hrs of fun for 55aed per person.. Worth every minute and every penny
