We had planned to visit this attraction, but upon arrival we were disappointed to learn that Children under 3 are not permitted. Not even for the snow park or the penguins.

This is not mentioned anywhere in the attraction description, or clearly on their website.

This meant that my husband and I had to go in on our own while the other one looked after Master 2.5, and then swap. We decided not to.

Everything else looked great, and we were really looking forward to going, so we were really disappointed.

Amazing to have a ski slope and snow in Dubai, in fact could only happen in Dubai. Amazing and credit must go to His Royal Highness for his strategy for the future of Dubai. The penguins are fascinating as is the toboggan ride.

I visited SKI DUBAI with my wife in March 2013. The experience for those who have experienced snow in one or the other hill stations is not woth the effort, time and money. The changeover system for dress and shoes is not very well coordinated and penguins are also a let down.......AVOID IF YOU HAVE SEEN SNOW EARLIER..
