Fun Skate Penguins

There will be 20 Fun Skate Penguins available for hire. They will not be bookable in advance and are hired on a first come first served basis. Please ensure you read the penguin rules and regulations. They are hired out at the management’s discretion and may not be available on certain sessions. The Penguins are designed as a fun item and not an aid to skating. They are suitable for children under 10 years old only. For reasons of health and safety we have to limit the amount of penguins offered. We thank you for your understanding in this matter.


Weather conditions

This is an outdoor event and ice skating will take place come rain or shine. For further information please read our terms and conditions available on the website. Should the management decide that the weather conditions are of a severity that skating is unsafe then an alternative skating session will be offered.

Please note we will be operating a strict no refund policy.
