Major attraction

The cute penguins are a major attraction in the Ski Dubai. Even though it is a small show , it is attractive especially with the kids.

Amazing to experience a cold snowy destination within a desert. Awesome skiing and other snow activities. The vision of Sheik Mo is second to none for the betterment of his people.

We really had mixed emotions about this.....yes, it's amazing that there are penguins in Dubai......yes, they probably shouldn't be here......yes, it's like other groups of penguins in other zoos.....so mixed emotions from us.

Can't explain how it feels to watch these amazing creatures doing various tricks, specially if you get to see them in the middle of desert.

Was not impressed we took our 4 yr old to see the penguins but the show was bad since we were outside the ski Dubai. It may be interactive for people inside who get to see the show n click some pics.

So I LOVE penguins. When I found out I could touch one I was blown away. The trainers are very friendly and knowledgeable. And the picture I got is worth a thousand words. Only downfall is the pictures are expensive.
