Chill out with the family at Snow Abu Dhabi

Snow Abu Dhabi - things to do in Abu Dhabi

No longer do Abu Dhabi residents have to make the drive down to Dubai to see snow in the UAE. Snow Abu Dhabi opened its doors over the summer and is the largest snow park in the region. The 10,000-square-foot area is home to 12 exhilarating rides, plus 17 engaging attractions. While there isn’t a ski slope here like in Ski Dubai, expect zip lining, sledding, carousels and zorbing. Don’t forget to rehearse your favourite Frozen song before you sleigh on over.
