If you’re looking for something different to do with friends or a place to spend a fun filled day with the family, check out Cockburn Ice Arena!
The ice skating rink has over 15 ice skating sessions each week during the school term, and even more sessions are added for the school holidays.
They run discounted night sessions, called ‘Cheapskate’ sessions on Tuesday and Thursday nights, and these sessions are only $15 per person, including regular skate hire.
Cockburn Ice Arena offers two types of skates for hire. The regular skates have a rigid plastic shell, standard padding inside, and are fastened with buckles, like ski boots. The Platinum range of skates have extra padding, and are a lace up style of boot.
Kangaroo and seal skating aids are available to hire for the little ones during the day sessions. These are designed for children to sit on while being pushed from behind, and are super fun!
A DJ runs games and takes music requests on weekend and school holiday sessions, and the arena will often run a ‘Learn to Skate’ demonstration at the beginning of a session during the school holidays. These demonstrations will teach basic skating tips, like how to glide, how to stop, and how to get up safely if you fall down. Arena staff are available to help out on the ice on weekends and school holidays.
So whether you bring the family, or visit with a group of friends, you are sure to have a blast! Make sure you visit Cockburn Ice Arena and check out one of their many ice skating sessions!
