Reviews and Additional Information

  1. My visit to Dubai ice rink in Dubai mall early April this year was too good to be Expressed in words . The staff were extremely courteous and kind. They went out of the way to accommodate some Requests as per the need of the time. Especially Martha she was so kind and supportive to us. I will definitely visit the place again.

  2. The disco sessions are the best. I have seen more people at the Ice Rink during evening disco dessions. Dubai Ice Rink has great special events.

  3. It is amazing to think that you can go ice skating in the middle of a shopping mall in the desert, but this is Dubai. My son had a great time and penguin was an excellent idea for a novice skater.

  4. The kids enjoyed it here. Prices were pretty good, especially for the kids (only the equivalent of about £5). They even got these penguin things to help them keep their balance.
