How long do we host the Ice Skate Tour?

We recommend 3-5 days depending on the roll size of your school or club.

When will the ice rink be open for the general public?

At schools we recommend to open the ice rink for general public (and fundraising) when school finishes and close between 6pm and 8pm. On the weekend and school holidays we recommend opening hours from 10am – 5pm.

Can we also use the ice rink during school hours?

Absolutely! Most schools ask us to do school sessions during schoolhours. Classes go on the ice rink for up to 50 minutes and we teach them the basics of balance, coordination and ice skating. We’ve seen kids gaining a lot of confidence from these sessions and the social aspect of kids helping each other is very heartening to witness. Send us an email for more information.

How long does it take to set up and take down the ice rink?

Roughly 2 hours for set up and 1-2 hours for pack-down but this also depends on number of helpers (8-12 adults) and access to the hall.

How safe is it?

Safety is our #1 priority at all our events. First of all helmets and gloves are compulsory for kids under 16. We provide these at no charge but kids can also bring their own helmet(we do recommend this for the lessons). Also we monitor the number of people on our ice rinks at all times to reduce the risk of accidents. During our booking process we’ll send you our H&S plan which includes our PL insurance certificate, first aid certificate, police checks etc.

Can the ice rink also be used for birthday parties and/or private functions after opening hours?

Absolutely we’ve got a cool and affordable party package and the host school/club will receive 20% of these funds.

What is the size of the ice rink?

Our ice rinks, including inflatable boarding, are 10m x 16m and we need some extra space for our counters, benches etc. We recommend to check your hall dimensions before confirming.

What are our responsibilities?

As a host of the Ice Skate Tour you are responsible for the local promotion. We’ll provide you with posters and flyers though! Also you’ll need to organise 8-12 helpers for the setup and pack-down of the ice rink.  

How green is the Ice Skate Tour?

First of all our ice rinks do not require any power to keep it cold. The cleaning products we use for the ice rink are soya based and at the end of it’s life span our ice rinks will be recycled into new ice rinks.

Can we host the Ice Skate Tour multiple times?

You sure can! Most schools make it an annual or bi-annual event and you can pencil book dates well in advance before your event.
