Penguin skating aids

Our penguins (pictured right) are ideal for helping young skaters to gain confidence on the ice. They can be hired for any public skating session but pre-booking online is advisable. The penguins are 91.5cm tall and although there is no minimum height restriction, the user does need to be able to walk and reach the handle. The maximum height for use is 130cm. The charge covers the full 40-minute session and there are no refunds or part-refunds if the penguin is not used or is only used for part of the session. Bookings are non-refundable.

Parent and toddler ice-play sessions

Special non-skating ice-play sessions for kids aged between 18 months and 5 years, with plenty of toys to play with. The sessions last 40 minutes, and children must be accompanied by an adult (at least one adult per two children). Please note that on Sundays, when these sessions start at 9.30am, the Eden gates will open at 9am. 

Chilly Juniors sessions

Fun skating sessions with races and games on selected Sundays for 6-12 yr olds. Participants need to be able to skate.
