Reem Mall Abu Dhabi to Open in 2021

One of the longest planned indoor snow centres in the Middle East will open in 2021, the company behind it says.

Snow Park Abu Dhabi will be a ‘destination snow park attraction’ covering 11,600 square metres (125,000 sq ft park) with less of an onus on skiing and snowboarding, it is understood, but more on multi-snow fun activities including sledging and zorbing.  There will be 13 different snow fun  activities and rides available. 

The malls developers say it will be “the world’s largest indoor snow park” however 11,600 square metres places it around 29th ion the world by indoor snow area – but all of the larger centres are predominantly ski and snowboarding centres. Ski Dubai is more than double the size at nearly  28,000 square metres and is ow the eighth largest in the world by slope area.

Work on Abu Dhabi’s $1.2bn Reem Mall where the park is located, which will feature the Snow Park, is reported to have been ongoing through the pandemic, and it will open next year investors Agility say, although an  exact opening date has not yet been set.

After many years of planning work on Reem Mall, located in the Najmat District on Reem Island and  which will contain 450 shops, restaurants and a cinema, got underway in 2017.
