Its great Idea to have such a large Ice rink and maintain the standards in the middle of the desert where the out side temperature reaches more than 50 degrees celcious during summer time.
I went there as a guy who dose not have any prior experience on Ice skating but with some experience on roller skating,It took only few minutes for me to skate like a pro with some advices from the instructors readily available and ready to lend a hand when ever required.This facility is well maintained and its a great feeling one to come from the hot climate outside and get lost in the totally different world of ICE.
Fantastic Place.

The Abu Dhabi ice rink has recently undergone major renovations. It now features state of the art "NHL" standard boards, new lighting, new change rooms and a rejuvenated freezing system to allow for more even / consistent (and "hard") ice. .. and thus a better skating experience. The rink also features improvements to the concession stands and eating areas.

It still remains to be seen if the management of the skate rental program continues as it has in the past - less than adequate. Skates have typically been rented out without being properly sharpened and thus marginalizing and even endangering those who want to "experience" the thrill of ice skating. Skate sharpening has been seen as optional and something that the "renter" assumes responsibility for. Thus skates can be rented and then sharpened for an additional fee - something highly recommended to increase your safety and enjoyment of the experience.

Be ware of select days being set aside for "women" only skating. These are usually Thursdays but give them a call in advance to confirm.

All in all.. still a rather unique and enjoyable experience here in Abu Dhabi.

the coolest place in Abu Dhabi - obviously! The best rink facility in the UAE after the refurbishment, clean, bright and superb value.
Excellent coaching staff as well - and the end of year show is well worth attending. New pizza restaurant means you can eat here as well.

Our children absolutely love the time they have to spend here, skates, cold, other happy souls rolling, sliding, skating around the place. There is also the usual rental and shop for kids to enjoy other things and eat "what is a parent's choice to entertain or not". Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves, child and adult alike.

Unfortunately, I had terrible Experience today with my kids who are amateurs in ice skating while visiting the ice rink in Zayed Sports City. At the admission, we had to pay extra charge per kid for the safety gear! It seems to me that safety is optional at this rink with no consent of responsibility in case of any incident! Later on, one ice rink Marshall was alone in charge of the whole rink. One of my kids fell off on his knee while skating, I asked for ice pack or any other help to stop the swelling; I was surprised by one of the female security bringing some ice cubes on a tissue! I asked for ice packs or similar, she answered saying that there was one pack only and one of the players took it with him home!
Well, I reviewed most of the international rules of safety in the ice rinks like ISU or IIHF and found that this rink is not compliant to any of the safety rules and procedures.
So not recommended!
