With the weather changes in Dubai, you and the kids will be looking for ways to beat the heat and the Dubai Ice Rink Dubai Mall perfect venue. Situated in the center of the Dubai Mall, this Olympic-sized ice rink with its world-class facilities offers entertainment for the entire family.

For 55 AED ($15 USD) you can enjoy two hours of frolicking on the ice with friends or step it up a notch with their dynamic disco sessions. Hosted by an in-house DJ, playing all the top hits, the rink comes to life with the wild techno beats and flashing lights of a popular nightclub, every Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Ice skating has never been this engaging and fun.

But I don’t know how to ice skate, you say?

Well, that can easily be remedied. Whether you are sixty or six, the Dubai Ice Rink has the right lesson plan for you. From the basics to learning some fancy footwork, turns, and jumps, the ice rink has professional instructor teaching at five skill levels. Choose the one that’s right for you.

Their Learn-To-Skate program offers group classes (for 10 people) at a cost of 550 AED ($150 USD) for 5 half hour sessions, semi-private classes (for 5 people) for 125 AED ($35 USD), and one-on-one lessons tailored to meet your needs for 155 AED ($42.50SD).

They even have has a program for Moms and Tots available during the first public skating session of each day. Spending quality time together on the ice is an excellent way to bond with the little ones. Penguin Pals are available for kids under 100 cm., offering safety and stability as your child learns develop their skating skills.

But I must warn you, this form of recreation can become addictive, especially for the children. But, again, the rink has you covered with its Mega Skate Sessions. For only 80 AED ($22 USD) you can have unlimited access to the rink on Fridays and Saturdays between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. giving you access to both the public skates and the disco sessions.

What better way can you find to beat the heat. For only 125 AED ($35 USD) which includes a locker. With the Ice Pass, you can skate a bit, shop around the mall then come back for more. (The Ice Pass is available on Sundays through Wednesdays and not on public holidays.)

If you end up being one of the few that find out that ice-skating is not for you, or you’re just not in the mood, the Dubai Ice Rink is a great place to let the children have their fun while you shop. Doesn’t the idea of having two hours free to shop at your leisure, without the kids whining “Mommy, let’s go. I’m bored,” sound wonderful? The rink also provides seating for you to relax while you wait, or you can do as I did. Grab a comfy seat at the nearby chocolate bar, and sip on a warm cup of hot-cocoa as you watch the kids have fun.

Hot-cocoa, you say? In the Dubai summer? Yes, the temperature around the rink makes it cool enough to enjoy that tasty treat any time of year.

So why not check out the world of ice skating at the Dubai Mall? It’s a fun sport for the entire family, or a great way to free yourself from the kids for a few hours while you go do your thing.
