Take a turn on the ‘iceless’ ice rink: The Arabian Center near Mirdif boasts a cool experience for novice (and professional) skaters. The difference is that this ice rink is made from a substance called ‘synthetic ice’, which isn’t cold to the touch, and is 10 percent less slippery than regular ice (meaning less tumbles for the tots). The facility is also perfect for our desert climes because the rink doesn’t require huge refrigeration units to maintain it. Dhs25 for a two hour session plus skate hire.
Open daily 10am-10pm. Arabian Center, Mirdif, www.arabiancenter.ae (04 284 5555).
