Fancy sliding about on an ice rink this winter?
City Centre Miridf has transformed part of the mall into an Amazonian jungle with its own ice rink. By day there’s a jungle-themed obstacle course for kids to swing about on and giant Jenga and Connect 4 games for all the family to play. Movie nights and live music take over the outdoor amphitheatre from 4pm every day, with favourites like Kung Fu Panda 3, Cars 3, Frozen, The Lion King and La La Land.
The ‘Outdoors’ pop-up took over City Centre Deira last year and we found tons of fun things to do there when we visited. Now Outdoors at City Centre Mirdif is also packed with ways to entertain yourself – it even has its own ice rink where you can perfect your Adam Rippon-esque routine.
There are 13 food trucks with something for every appetite, from sliders and cheesy fries from Mr Brisket’s to rose-shaped ice-cream scoops at Amorino, as well as Chili’s, Papa Roti, Jungle Juice and more.
If you’re thinking ‘this all sounds very ‘Grammable,’ you’d be absolutely right. Outdoors even has its own Insta-station where you can pose with your foodie finds. We’re not sure what that is, but you have to say cheese!
Entry is free, but as of early 2019, charges have been introduced for skating: AED 30 for 30 minutes, AED 20 for another 30 mins, AED 20 for a learning aid and AED 10 for a helmet.
Outdoors at City Centre Mirdif. Entry is free. Until 9th March, 4pm-midnight on weekdays and 10am-midnight weekends. www.citycentremirdif.com
