Summer has arrived as soon as the temperature in the UAE surpasses 40 degrees Celsius. Residents should head indoors as soon as possible to escape the heat, and what better place to accomplish so than a snow park?
One of the coolest venues in the nation has doors in Abu Dhabi. The first indoor snow park in the Capital, Snow Abu Dhabi, has been formally opened in Reem Mall on Reem Island and will begin to accept tourists on June 8.
The magnificent park, which covers 100,000 square feet and is run by Majid Al Futtaim Entertainment, has more than 20 rides and attractions and is kept at a chilly two degrees. But don’t worry; the park offers everything you need, so you won’t need to look through your wardrobe for warm clothing. Once you arrive at the park, the staff will outfit you with a snow jacket, boots, gloves, a hat, and warm socks. And they come in many shapes and sizes, serving every age range. Additionally, it is a unique location that offers family-friendly adventures.The magnificent park, which covers 100,000 square feet and is run by Majid Al Futtaim Entertainment, has more than 20 rides and attractions and is kept at a chilly two degrees.

One of the largest snow parks in the world is what makes Snow Abu Dhabi unique, according to Mohammad El Etri, Vice President, Global Snow, Majid Al Futtaim Entertainment, who spoke to Khaleej Times.
“This location is ideal for families. There are attractions for kids, teenagers, and people of all ages. One can have wonderful family time. They can enjoy the cold while warming up in comfortable eateries serving delectable F&B.
Saleh Mohamed Al Geziry, Director General of Tourism, Department of Culture and Tourism, Abu Dhabi; Ignace Lahoud, CEO, Majid Al Futtaim Entertainment; and El Etri were present at the inaugural ceremony. Just six months after Snow Oman opened, this park is now open as Majid Al Futtaim Entertainment broadens its geographic reach.
Lahoud observed that Abu Dhabi is quickly becoming a popular tourist destination for families.
“We are thrilled to launch a brand-new experience that is unlike anything the Capital has to offer. The power of entertainment to unite people and improve their quality of life is astounding. The debut of Snow Abu Dhabi solidifies Majid Al Futtaim Entertainment’s dedication to offering cutting-edge, immersive experiences to families throughout the Mena region, according to Lahoud, who also announced plans to include penguins in the park.
The ‘Enchanted Forest’ concept, which evokes a whimsical world blanketed in frost, incorporates storytelling into the design. More than 20 rides and attractions are available at the location, including the “Crystal Carousel,” “Polar Express Train,” “Flight of the Snowy Owl,” “Snowflake Garden,” and “Enchanted Tree.”
Visitors may enjoy various snowy activities like sledding, carousels, zorbing, and zip-lining all year. Additionally, three food and beverage establishments offer a variety of delectable snacks and meals served in a real snowy environment.
According to Bruce von Kaufmann, mall director at Reem Mall, the opening of Snow Abu Dhabi will allow mall patrons to escape into an enchanted winter wonderland with exhilarating activities and captivating surroundings.
“We believe this partnership (with Majid Al Futtaim) will set a new standard for customer satisfaction, ensuring that Reem Mall remains a premier destination for residents and tourists seeking unforgettable memories and exceptional entertainment in Abu Dhabi,” Kaufmann said.
With ten cutting-edge screens, Vox Cinemas, the movie theatre division of Majid Al Futtaim, is also located in the mall.
After Ski Dubai (2005), Ski Egypt (2017), and Snow Oman (December 2022), the fourth indoor snow resort built by Majid Al Futtaim Entertainment is Snow Abu Dhabi. With rates starting at Dh215 for the Snow Park Pass, which includes unlimited admission to all rides, fleece gloves, and a locker, Snow Abu Dhabi provides a wide choice of packages and passes. Families can also purchase the family pass, which contains five passes for the price of four, for a special price of Dh860. It can be found on Level 2 of the Reem Mall (open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday through Thursday and from 10 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday).
