Located on the ground floor of the mall next to The Souk, the Olympic-size Dubai Ice Rink has become a social hotspot, appealing to the entire spectrum of the society, both to young and old alike. Dubai Ice Rink has enhanced its range of facilities to define its credentials as the must-visit leisure destination in the city. This popular attraction at The Dubai Mall has established it as a vibrant party- and dance-floor and a lively venue for youthful events.

“You need to see it”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

Dubai Mall itself will open your eyes, the architectural design of the Mall alone is only something we in Australia could see pictures of and imagine. Then you enter the Mall, the extravagance of some of the displays, the Aquarium is almost two stories high and probably 40 odd meters long that is created as a wall as you walk through the Mall. Just when you think you have seen it all you find yourself looking at the Ice Rink which would nearly cover the size of a football field.

“Very nice”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

It was the first time to get my kids there, they enjoyed it very much and ask me to go there several times. It's a big Ice Rink that suits all ages and all levels, so if you are a beginner you will enjoy it as much as being professional. They provide kids with a penguin shaped supporter so they can use it while in the rink.

“Nice experience”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

The rink is wide enough to welcome first-timers, amateurs, and professionals. A 2 hours entry is a nice idea, coz it would allow you time for a break. However, since it was my first time skating ever, I had to stay at the edge and noticed that although the staff "clears and paves" the rink every 2 hours, it seems that the vehicle doesn't reach the whole sides area so it's a bit bumpy.

“Great experience in the desert”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

After a long day at the mall, we ran into the Dubai Ice Rink by chance. The kids were so excited and wanted to have a go. There were way too many people in the rink and I was sure that they exceeded the maximum stipulated limit. Nevertheless, kids had a great time for about hour and half.

“Great way to avoid the shops!!”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Take a couple of hours here to get a break from the shopping!

Everything you could ask for and need. Skate hire, socks available for purchase (we only had our sandals on when found it in the mall), lockers, supervisors / trainers on the ice.

Surrounded by perspex viewing and coffee shops, so easy for non-skaters to watch.

Really good way to fill in a couple of hours on our Dubai stopover.
