The attraction on Reem Island is a sub-zero snow and ice park which, like Ski Dubai in Mall of the Emirates, is operated by Majid Al Futtaim.

The indoor park features 12 rides and 17 attractions spread across nearly 1,000 square metres. It maintains a temperature of minus 2ºC.

The attractions include two huge slides called Ice and Floes Toboggan Race and Grauppel’s Summit Escape.

Snow Abu Dhabi's creatively named rides include The Entry Plaza, the Flight of the Snowy Owl, the Magic Carpet, the Polar Express Train and the Crystal Carousel.

There will also be restaurants inside the park, including The Lodge Restaurant, Ice Cafe and Grotto Amphitheatre.
