“What a Thrill.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

What a fantastic facility to have in the middle of this city! It was like being back in my home country of Scotland!

A great centre with lots of children learning the art of skiing.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Very fun place to be knowing that you are in the desert. Option to hire gloves is a must. Good fun activities inside.

“Skiing in the desert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Where else in the world can you ski on the water, sand and snow all in a day! You've gotta do this just to say you have. The ski run is small but it's fast and fun.

“Great fun! Definitely worth 2-3 hours of your life!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Ski Dubai & the Snow World in there is awesome. Wearing the jackets & clothes is a bit of a task but is totally worth it. Also, they dont provide gloves so that is a mandatory expense one has to undergo... But all this is worth it. The slides, rides, both for kids & adults are awesome and if you're a skier, you can enjoy the main ski slope as well. They have regular penguin shows too which the kids loved!!!
