Take a spin on the ice, followed by a saunter around the amazing Manchester Christmas Markets; do a spot of shopping, sample some of the amazing food and drink on offer and then head home to sleep it off dreaming of winning Gold at the Winter Olympics!

Children from 3 years old can skate on our ice rink. We hold a limited selection of bob skates – double bladed skates which offer greater stability for younger skaters. These are available on a first come, first served basis.

We also have a range of children’s skating aids to help younger skaters at a cost of £5.00 per session, these are ideal for younger skaters needing more stability. Skate aids are limited and must be booked in advance of your session.

All children aged between 3 and 9 years old (inclusive) must be accompanied by an adult (18+) on the ice. One adult per child.

Children aged between 10 and 12 years of age must also be accompanied by an adult (18+). This adult does not have to be on the ice but MUST be watching at all times. A ratio of 1 adult to 5 children will be accepted for this age range.

Our child tickets range from £12.50 – £14.00 dependent on peak/off peak sessions – or why not buy one of our great value family tickets? read below to find out more.
