Dubai/NITN: Ski Dubai at Mall of the Emirates announced a Christmas Wonderland from Dec 12 to Dec 24.
The packed programme of activities offers the opportunity to meet the main man himself - Santa Claus, witness the lighting of a magnificent, glittering Christmas tree, revel in artistic craft-making workshops for the kids, and share in some heart-warming carol singing.
Stretching across both the cold and warm sides of Ski Dubai, the packed programme of complimentary activities kicks off on Dec 12 at 6 pm with the lighting of a giant glittering Christmas tree. But before the big switch on, visitors are invited to gather around and join the parade with Santa, Mrs. Claus, and carollers in festive song to mark the start of the celebrations.
On the cold side, guests can create a moment worth remembering by stepping into Santa’s grotto to meet the beloved character and take a photo with him. The Santa ticket, which includes the photo and a gift is available for AED 125. Once wishes have been made and guests make sure they are indeed on Santa’s ‘nice’ list, they can delight in a cup of hot cocoa in the snow park with crisp white snow under foot.
Walking through the Christmas Wonderland, guests will be treated to much more. At a nook by the fireplace, kids will find Mrs. Claus sitting in her rocking chair waiting to regale them with stories.
And, right before leaving, visitors can share one last experience (until they return) by writing their Christmas gift wish to hang on the SHARE-a-wish tree. In the true spirit of giving, one lucky wisher will be selected on the morning of Dec 24 to have their gift personally delivered to them by Santa Claus.
