Ice Skating


Intensity Level 2

Give it a go

What is it?

Glide into the exciting world of ice skating, where children under the age of five skate for free. Ice skating is a lively and fun activity to enjoy with family or friends – it’s guaranteed to get your body moving!

What do I need?

Wear comfortable, warm clothes and cosy socks! Wearing a few layers is a good idea so you can take off or add clothing when you need to. You don't need to bring skates – we have hundreds of different skates in all sizes and styles and skate hire is included in the ticket price. There’s a great selection of food and drink in our Sub Zero café located alongside the ice rink.

Is it for me?

If you’re new to skating, the friendly staff will teach you all you need to get started in the Warm Up Zone before you hit the ice. There are a range of ice equipment to help toddlers and youngsters with skating including snowmen, penguins, seals etc. On ice equipment is free to use in the Tots Zone or can be hired for £4.00 for the whole rink.
