Christmas in Dubai 2019: go ice skating at the beach

Dubai's JBR has revealed its Christmas line-up for December's WOWJBR and it even includes an ice skating rink.

It may be cooling down, but not enough for an ice skating rink, surely? Well, actually yes – for the first time ever JBR will be getting its very own ice skating rink right by the beach.

Throughout December JBR will be home to a (synthetic) ice skating rink, complete with a giant igloo where skaters can get ready to hit the ice, as well as a winter forest – all marvelously Instagrammable.

But that's just one of the activities little ones can enjoy with their families.

In addition, look out for the various Christmas characters who will be roaming around ready for an impromptu selfie opportunity.

Kids will love clapping eyes on the Christmas-stealing Grinch, Santa and his elves as well as the robbers from the Home Alone films.

Try your luck on the human claw. Get strapped in and then dangle over a pit of pressies as you try your best to grab a gift – definitely much easier than it looks.

Other cool activities include a giant Rubik's cube that will test your puzzle-solving skills.

Get your skates on this Christmas in Dubai.
Free. Thu Dec 5- Fri Dec 27, Fri & Sat, from 6.30pm. JBR, The Walk.
