Dubai Ice Rink

Keep away the heat and get down to The Dubai Mall to ice-skate on the Olympic-sized rink. Whether you are a pro or a beginner, you are sure to make the most of the enormous facility as you glide across the ice. The Dubai Mall is the world's biggest shopping and entertainment hub and even in the heat of the desert, it is not surprising to find an Olympic-sized ice rink. Tie up your skates and head onto the ice. Practice your hockey-stops or even throw in a spin as you enjoy the sport with family and friends. In the sometimes extreme heat of Dubai, the rink can be the coolest place to seek shelter and have fun at the same time.
