• Is there a minimum height for skating?
Some parents choose to get their children on skates and on the ice as soon as they can walk, but the ideal age to begin ice skating is 3. Children under 100cm must be accompanied by an adult at all times and will be given a complimentary helmet for their safety.
• Do you have any skating aids available?
Yes, we have three different types of skating aids that can be hired for your skating session duration. You can choose from either a seal, penguin, or snowman. Our friendly team of ice marshals can help you find the right type of skating aid for your height. Skating aids are available for both adults and children.
• Are ice skates provided?
Yes, as part of your admission fee, skates and socks are included. Our more confident skaters can opt to hire our premium VIP hockey or figure skates for an additional charge – or simply bring your own.
• Do you have lockers?
Yes, we have lockers available where you may keep your personal belongings. We advise taking as little as possible on the ice, especially mobile phones and other pocket-sized items.
• Do I have to pay to be a spectator?
We offer x1 complimentary spectator per group. If you have anyone else in your party who wishes to watch, you will need to purchase a spectator ticket for AED10pp.
• What if I can’t make my session or lesson time?
As per our terms and conditions, tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable. We will always try our best to accommodate for exceptional circumstances, but for the avoidance of doubt, please ensure you can commit to that time and date before booking your ticket.

• Is there a dress code?
We recommend dressing for winter and ensuring arms and legs are covered by avoiding small T-shirts and shorts. The ice averages -5 degrees Celsius and can get too chilly. Due to health and safety and the nature of ice skating being an extreme sport, long dresses, national dress, or any trailing clothing is not advised. You may wear hats, gloves, and scarves. However, we also have cosy gloves available to purchase for AED10pp.
• Is it safe for children to skate by themselves?
An adult must accompany children under 100cm at all times. Children over 120cm can skate completely alone and unaided.
• Is first aid available?
Due to the nature of ice skating being an extreme, high-impact sport, slips and falls may likely happen – therefore, we have a highly skilled and welcoming team of medics and a private first aid room to attend to all your medical needs.
• How long am I able to skate?
We run sessions every 2 hours, and each session entitles each skater to a full 90 minutes of skating. All our daily session and skate timings are available here (please include a hyperlink to the bookings page)
• What is the difference between your different types of skating sessions?
We have four main skating sessions: Public, Disco, Snowfall, and DJ. Our DJ session is our most popular, as it includes a real snowfall and disco experience, along with live music from our talented DJs. Our public sessions are a skate-for-all zone; however, they do not include any music or snowfall.
