Skate and helmet hire

Skate and helmet hire

To get off to a skate start, there’s one essential item: the skates themselves. We have two kinds on offer and which you choose is up to you. 

 

Standard Skates

Price
$5 to hire (and only $2 upgrade to hockey skates if you’d like to switch)

Size
Kids size 7 - adults size 14

Features
A plastic body and a ladder tightening system and with or without a toe pick.

 

Hockey Skate

Price
$7 to hire

Size
size 2 - adults size 14

Features
More ankle support, lace up and come only without toe picks. (Many first timers find it easier to learn in hockey skates).

 

Skate Aids

Price 
$5 for 1 hour

Features
A skate aid (similar to a zimmer frame but for having fun instead of walking) is a great way to help beginners build their confidence as they get comfortable on the ice and in their skates. Skate aids can’t be pre-booked and are hired on a first-come basis, but our staff will do their best to make sure you don’t want too long if there aren’t any available.

 

Helmets

Price 
FREE with skating admission

Size
XXS - XXL

Features
We recommend all beginners wear a helmet - it will make you feel more confident and have you gliding around the rink in no time. We have over 400 helmets available for free, or you can bring your own. For very small children we recommend bringing their own as XXS may still be too big.
