Parent and toddler skating
For children aged 18 months to 5 years who are new to skating
Parent & Toddler skating sessions are a great family activity to enjoy with your little ones.
We have dedicated coaches on the ice during these sessions, so children can take to the ice, build their confidence and increase their co-ordination safely. A range of fun on-ice equipment characters are also available to help your child as they take their first steps on the ice!
For just £6.50 you’ll have access to a 30 minute session for you and one child under the age of five. Skate hire is included in the price and a range of on-ice equipment characters are available for the duration of the session, subject to availability. The sessions take place on a private section of ice during public skating sessions.
Spaces fill up fast and on-ice equipment is available on a first come first serve basis, so we recommend booking this session in advance online or via the box office on 0843 373 3000.
£6.50 for one parent and one child under the age of five. Price includes skate hire for both. Price includes a piece of on-ice equipment for the child.
An additional adult for this session is priced £6.50 / additional child £3.50.
Once your 30 minutes Parent & Toddler session has ended, you are welcome to skate on the public skating session with your child and piece of on-ice equipment. Please note that due to size, the cars cannot be used during the public skating session.
