Skate Information

Sessions last for at least 45 minutes and you should arrive at least 15 to 20 minutes before your session starts. It’s a good idea to wear gloves and thick socks, bring an extra pair just in case. It’s is also very important that you read the safety guidelines before your sessions.

If your children are new to skating it is best to take them during a time when the ice skating rink is less crowded. You can call the team on 0161 820 9718 to find out when the ice rink is not as crowded and choose the best time to take your family.

Please Note

  • If you arrive late for your session you can join in but you will not be given added ice time at the end or at the start of the next session.
  • Children’s Tickets are only available to children 12 years of age and under.
  • Parents/Guardians who are accompanying children must remain in the venue with the children during the ice skating session (but you don’t have to skate!)
  • Penguins or Seals (Skating Aid’s) – We do not charge customers for these, they are supplied on a first come, first served basis.
  • The maximum height for use is 120cm/4ft. Please respect our upper age limit of 8 for use of penguins.
  • Student Tickets are only available at the rink when valid Student ID is shown to the Box Office staff. They are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays only.
