Tips for Snow Park Abu Dhabi Visitors
- Like Dubai, Abu Dhabi also has a weekend on Friday and Saturday, which means these are the busiest days at the theme park. Avoid these days if you want fewer crowds.
- Make sure you reach there early in the day, closer to opening hours, as you can get ahead of the queues at the rides.
- Pre-book your tickets online and avoid waiting at the ticketing queue.
- The winter wear at the Snow Park Abu Dhabi is adequate but if you or your kids are prone to feel colder than usual bring your own gear. The temperature inside Snow Park will be maintained at -2 °C at all times.
- Plan to stay at least two days in Abu Dhabi so you can cover Snow Park Abu Dhabi as well as the Ferrari World and Yas Waterworld to your heart’s content.
- Be careful that your kids are fully clothed and covered as the snow can be too cold to touch and they might not realize it immediately.
