Wasn't what I thought I was doing was 100% better. You got to touch and stroke two penguins have lots of photos taken with them. No mobiles are allowed and the photos although brilliant are rather expensive we bought 3 and cost us £93 then you can download them to but only the ones you bought bit of a rip off in that respect. The organisation of getting your jackets gloves pants etc is awful hectic rushed. Pants didn't fit me size 12 and barely fitted my husband boots were not sizes we asked for and my husband had two different sizes. Locker area is way to small and again busy. Couldn't wait to get out once our activity was over. Besides that the experience I highly recommend but suggest ski dubai rethink prices of photos as the activity wasn't cheap to begin with

The experience was cool But when I got there they knew nothing about my paid appointment saying they had not approved this or confirmed this appointment which is so bad on your side as you took my money and never mentioned that ski dubai had to confirm. Fortunately after some arguing they let us in. Sad we had this start because of your company.

Lovely penguins, children absolutely love it. It is better to take the time to get acquainted with the penguins at 13.00, then you can have time to watch the parade of penguins at 14.00. Taking pictures - you cannot shoot on site, only a local photographer. A souvenir photo costs 40 euros, even more on a flash drive.
