DUBAI, UAE—Majid Al Futtaim, the leading shopping mall, communities, retail and leisure pioneer across the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, unveiled on 24 December 2022, Snow Oman, the MENA region’s largest indoor snow park.

Set in the heart of the Mall of Oman, Snow Oman covers a sprawling area of 14,830 square metres with a “Desert Blizzard” theme – a reimagined world where Oman’s cityscapes and sand dunes are covered in real snow. The coolest must-visit destination will feature family-friendly rides such as the Mountain Thriller, Snow Bullet, Slide Winder, Cloud Climber, and Zorb Ball, unique attractions such as Cold Town Muscat, Frozen Shipwreck and Lighthouse, and a 475-square metre ice rink.

Like its sister brands Ski Dubai and Ski Egypt, Snow Oman is now home to a colony of king and gentoo penguins who are provided with the best possible care in a custom-built penguinarium.

In 2005, Majid Al Futtaim pioneered a one-of-a-kind, sub-zero leisure offering in the Mall of the Emirates: Ski Dubai. The award-winning experience has been recognised as the World’s Best Indoor Ski Resort by the prestigious World Ski Awards for seven consecutive years. In 2017, Ski Egypt opened in the Mall of Egypt and set an all-new record for being the first of its kind in the African continent. For more information, visit
