Experience Ice Skating In Dubai – My Experience With Ice Rink Dubai Mall: Here’s What To Expect…

Set your spirit free on the ice at Dubai’s electrifying ice arena, providing proficient ice skating activities and catering to all ages through its Learn-to-Skate program, Dubai Ice Skating Academy for ice hockey, as well as hosting Disco Skate sessions for a complete fun-filled day.
What I loved the most about Dubai Ice Rink was its Smooth-Icy Flooring, which allowed us to effortlessly dance on the ice with our skates on. It might sound like a straight out of the movies, but that’s exactly what the Dubai Ice Rink brings to the table!
Skating on the ice rink was so smooth, that I wanted to keep skating and dancing on the ice forever… Believe me, it was an exceptional experience, And I am sure you will not discover that much smoothness anywhere in the world.
Hey, wait! I didn’t know ice-skating…
Because of the amazing care staff at the Ice Rink Dubai Mall, ice-skating won’t remain an optimistic activity if you are set to go and attempt!
The staff at the Ice Rink provided me the complete skating gear – socks, helmet, skates and a cute little penguin (to be my support). The penguin is a kinda unique type of support for newbies like me. You have to firmly grab the handles on the penguin, after which the penguin will cruise over the ice rink, allowing you to balance yourself on the ice while skating and also preventing you from falling down. When you feel yourself capable enough, you can leave the penguin and go ice skating with your own super-special abilities :p
There were some super talented kids who did outstandingly well by getting rid of the penguin or any sort of help by half time!
The ice-rink session lasts for one hour and forty-five minutes, after which you can enjoy some snacks, have lunch, and shop at the Dubai Mall. The Ice Rink at Dubai Mall also caters to birthday parties, get-togethers, special events, and ladies-only skate sessions – if you are willing to avail any of this service, you can directly contact CliftonTours, because they are the Maestros in providing you discounted deals and organizing an event for you at the Ice Rink at affordable rates.
Verdict: I loved each and every moment at the Dubai Ice Rink. In fact, the entire experience was not just fun but was reviving and a whole new dimension of awesomeness with unique skill lessons being taken – It’s an absolute must-try in Dubai (with repeat value).
