Ice Skating Sessions

ALL CUSTOMERS are required to wear a face mask/shield at all times when not on the ice, unless medically exempt.

General Ice Skating Session

Join us on general sessions where the house lights are on and everyone is welcome to skate at a steady pace. Some of these sessions are also used to teach ice hockey or figure skating, so there may be restrictions on ice availability to the public.

Family Session
Currently there are no family ice skating sessions. This will be reviewed weekly.

Disco Session

Skating with an atmosphere, disco lights and loud music turn our ice pad into a great venue for all in attendance. Anyone is welcome to these sessions but very small children or complete beginners are advised to try a family session first. Please note, NO PENGUIN/SNOWMEN SKATING AIDS are allowed on this session.
