Really enjoyed this aspect of Ski Dubai as I didnt really enjoy the venue itself. Great informative information about the animals and they are very cute... Great for kids....

We were disappointed, because we couldn't touch them. The show is only seeing penguin walking and eating.

The closest you can get to snow and the wonderful world of ice. The penguins are adorable and a delight to watch!

I was taken back as I was not aware you could go skiing in hot Dubai. This place is like heaven on earth, at one point I thought I was in France. I cannot wait to take my son on my next visit.

It's such a site to see the aquatic animals in the desert of Dubai. It's simply amazing. The whole experience, the snow, the penguins, freezing temperatures, skiing slope.... it's freaking fantastic.

I accompanied my son in a school trip to this venue and I thought it is quite educational as they did make a good animated presentation about the penguins. Kids got also to feed them, touch them and take photos.

Refreshing break from just looking at buildings. Well presented show suitable for all. Stroller friendly.

While Dubai is the city of the extremes, I believe having Penguins at a city of sometimes 45 degrees Celsius is as unusual and useless as the ski park

You can wear anything under the snow suit...I suggest wearing jeans as they are going to be warmer than shorts--it gets very cold in there. However, if you're only doing the penguin encounter, you won't be there that long... More

I am really not sure but I can find out for you because we bought their pictures since we did not have camera with us.
