Ice Skating Aids

We offer a range of skating aids to help young children take their first steps on the ice. Penguin skating aids are available to children under 1.20 metres in height (with skates), snowmen are available to children between 1.20 metres and 1.5 metres (with skates) and our brand new polar bears are suitable for children under 1 metre in height (wearing skates). Aid will only be issued where there is a parent or guardian providing assistance.

For health and safety of your child and other skaters, we cannot permit skating aids to be used by taller children or adults regardless of their skating ability. This is due to manufacture guidelines and is non-negotiable.

*Skating aids are available on a first come, first served basis and management reserve the right to withdraw skating aids during busy periods.
