03 Feb 2013

Come celebrate the anniversary with special March of the Penguins and reduced encounter rates.

Dubai, UAE: Ski Dubai’s famous arctic inhabitants, the snow penguins are marking their first anniversary at Ski Dubai amid a flurry of festivities and celebrations. Ski Dubai’s encounter areas have been enveloped in colorful decorations, uplifting music and an all- round feeling of fun and cheer.

Guests to Ski Dubai will also find it easier to meet the friendly birds, as Ski Dubai has extended a special discount on all Peng-Friend encounters. As the first of its kind interactive experience in the Middle East, the Peng- Friend encounters allow guests to meet the snow penguins and spend time directly interacting with them, while learning about their natural environment and behavior. Encounters are open to all guests, starting from 3 years of age.

As part of the celebrations, the snow penguins will also be participating in a special March of the Penguins that is free to view as part of the snow park access.

“Bringing the snow penguins to their new home at Ski Dubai was a milestone for us, and after a hugely successful year we have reason to celebrate again. The snow penguins have brought countless smiles to the faces of young and old, while creating awareness about preserving our natural environment. I would like to congratulate the team at Ski Dubai who made our dream of welcoming snow penguins a reality and continue to exceed the expectations of our visitors,” commented Mr. Omar El Banna, Marketing and Sales Director, Majid Al Futtaim Leisure & Entertainment.

Penguin encounters can be booked directly at Ski Dubai or by calling: 04 409 4090 and are available from 12:00 p.m. – 9 p.m. on weekdays and weekends.
