P-p-p-pick up a penguin at the Snow Park: Have you ever cuddled a small, fish-eating, flightless bird that hails from the Arctic? If not, now’s your chance, as there is now a merry band of King and Gentoo penguins, happily ensconced on the snowy slopes of Ski Dubai. Furthermore, they are all tame penguins, and apparently, according to their keepers, they like nothing better than a cuddle (and a handful of fresh Mackerel) from some interested spectators.
Dhs175 (per person) for penguin petting, Dhs120 (for adults) Dhs110 (for children) for Snow Park entry. Penguin petting is available daily, from 1-9pm on weekdays and 12pm-9pm on weekends. Ongoing.
