The busy production schedule for new Olympias means the factory rarely carry out overhauls of the type photographed here so were pleased to get our hands on the first one since 2015.

These machines are stripped back to bare chassis and drivetrain and then rebuilt with all worn parts replaced. The machine is reassembled with new body panels and fresh paintwork so it looks as well as it works.

It did’nt take long to find a buyer. The Fun Zone in Ruwi, Sultanate of Oman had been using the old Olympia from the Al Khuwair Centre which closed when the Fun Zone opened. That machine had been another refurbished unit that had already given 12 years service. It seemed the ideal time to upgrade to a Millennium Olympia.

Although not yet the ‘Hot Season’ note that the hotel pool is empty during the 45 deg C day. No heated snow pit outside the rink required.

Oman has always had a “traditional” Arabian feel to it which is long gone from places such as Dubai and the local hospitality is very generous and sincere. However, the country has been expanding very rapidly in recent years and warrants a look now before too much changes.

As for the factory overhauled Olympia, as previously stated, we rarely get our hands on these, but if you find the idea of a comprehensively rebuilt machine that looks like new and costs less than
£ 38,000.00 plus VAT, then please let us know. We will do our best to secure one for you.
