Owner description: The undisputed coolest place in the city for sports is Zayed Sports City Ice Rink. As the city's only Olympic-size skating surface, it hosts the most thrilling ice hockey matches and figure skating shows in the UAE. Amenities abound, including a pro-shop, a dance studio, private event space and the best pizza in town at Figaro's. Zayed Sports City Ice Rink is fun for all ages and is the best place to pop in for a recreational session, learn to skate at any age, join the figure skating team's annual show or to meet friends for a weekend disco. Coaching is available for groups and individuals from beginner to Olympic hopeful and the membership programme is sure to keep you skating all year round.

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.

It is not so easy to have a good ice even in colder countries. The guys here did a great job. The place is amazing. The ice is great and above all, the people o the ice are very friendly, ready to help and teach. I was there with my family few times and my 5 year old son considers it as one of his favourite places to go.
If you want more space and guite time then you must go on morning sessions during the weekend. If you like action and fun than you must be there in the evenings with music and lights and lots of lads doing acrobatics.
It is a very very good place to have fun and cool down. Nw, they have food and drinks around the rink which makes the time spent there even better. Highly recommended for families but also for singles.

Abu Dhabi Ice Rink is a great place to chill and have fun with friends and family alike. Probably the biggest Ice Rink in Abu Dhabi, it is away from the rush of the city. It has become a place of many fond memories for both the locals and expatriate residents.

However, the place needs to get some renovation or maintenance since the place is really old and needs to get looking for catch more attention. Passer-byes may make a miss because of this.
