Snow Abu Dhabi is one of the newest indoor attractions in the Emirate, which everyone wants to visit!
It’s crazy to think about going from 40 degrees outside to sub-zero temperatures in Snow Abu Dhabi. It sits at a chilly minus two degrees which is a welcome relief from the hot desert climate, particularly from June through September.
There has never been natural Snow in Abu Dhabi. However this venue has 500mm of powder white snow all year round!
Nonetheless, the dazzling 9732 square meter facility boasts twenty rides, three dining outlets, a party room and a VIP room.
We are so excited to share the ultimare guide to visiting the enchanted forest-themed snow park. From ticket options to rides and dress code to dining options and facilities, we have covered all the basis to make sure your trip to Snow Abu Dhabi is perfect!
It is worth noting, children under the age of 2 are not suitable to visit Snow Abu Dhabi due to attraction height restrictions. Not to mention snow suit sizing is not available for small children.

Snow Abu Dhabi Tickets
The golden question is always how much does it cost to enter? There is a range of tickets which come with different perks and accessibility.
Firstly, tickets are the same price regardless of age. An adult must accompany children between the ages of three to fourteen.
To summarise, lockers, entrance to the park, fleece gloves, socks, snowsuits, safety helmets, snow boots and unlimited access to all the rides are included in all tickets. Everything except the gloves and socks needs to be returned.
However, there are few intricacies to each ticket below worth noting.
Firstly there is the snow park ticket costing 215 AED. This ticket does not come with food and beverage perks, and it may make sense to buy the snow premium ticket if there is a plan to dine, especially if it is a one off visit.
Hot chocolates start from 25 AED and meals in the lodge start from 39 AED. Kids’ meals start from 35 AED. So it’s worth doing the maths!
Secondly, there is a snow premium ticket which costs 295AED. With the premium ticket, guests get a hot chocolate, a meal at the lodge and waterproof gloves, as opposed to fleece gloves. More about the food later!
The family ticket costs 860 AED, which allows up to five people for the price of four. Food and drink are not included.
Two Day Ticket
The two-day ticket costs 295AED pp which gives two days of entry to the park, and it must be used within 30 days of purchase. The days must be consecutive. Food and drink are not included.
Since it is a relatively new attraction, it will be some time before it makes its way onto some of the well-known discount programmes such as Groupon and The Entertainer.
However Snow Abu Dhabi is currently listed on Fazaa with a reasonable discount as prices start at 175 AED.
If you are a resident of Abu Dhabi, especially on Al Reem Island, it may be worth investing in a Snow Abu Dhabi annual ticket.
The annual ticket to Snow Abu Dhabi costs 795 AED per person for access and gear only. However, it comes with 10% off hot chocolates, 15% off retail and 20% off dining.
Remember, Snow Abu Dhabi sits at a chilly minus two degrees, so we recommend wearing a pair of tracksuit bottoms and a long sleeve top before arrival.
It takes up to thirty minutes to get tickets, find a locker and get a snowsuit and boots fitted. Therefore, it is best to book online.
Purchasing tickets online can reduce the time spent preparing to go into Snow Abu Dhabi.
There are Lockers in the communal area and ladies and male changing rooms which are ideal for storing personal belongings such as shoes, clothing and bags.
During the admissions process, guests are provided with a digital wristband which opens and closes the locker. Make sure to take note of the locker you intend to use.
Photography At Snow Abu Dhabi
There are professional photographers at Snow Abu Dhabi to capture the moment. It can be a little challenging to capture photos and video with gloves.
The photos are high resolution and come out really nice. When buying tickets, its possible to add in a waterproof landyard specifically for phones to avoid it getting wet or damaged in the snow.
Otherwise, we are big fans of the GoPro which is ideal for an environment like Snow Abu Dhabi. They are durable and waterproof and capture great footage. Consider taking a mount or clip to stay hands free!
If you fancy checking out the professional photos and forgot to take a look, it’s possible to view them on My Snapps.
