Good facilities for a hockey game. It would be better if they could keep the stands warmer. Restaurant is a nice feature.

This is a cool place, which is great when it's too hot. But the place is old, and you have to check when/at what time you can come. There are cafes and pizzeria inside.

It might sound arrogant (but isn't) but this a attraction for the locals being far from winter,ice,snow (and snow chains, hahahaha). The artificial light pushes even more the whole artificial situation.....I'm sure little kids (especially locals) will not be bothered by those "sophisticated" aspects of mine !!!!!

We have spent many hours at the ice rink playing and watching hockey. I would highly recommend taking in a hockey game as it is a nice change from the heat.

Unfortunately, I had terrible Experience today with my kids who are amateurs in ice skating while visiting the ice rink in Zayed Sports City.

We were here with a group of children for a special occasion. The rink is big and allows for a lot of people to skate on it at one time but it doesn't feel overcrowded like some rinks can. Word of advise for parents sitting and watching from the stands, take warm clothing...
