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.
$5 to hire
Kids size 7 - adults size 14
A plastic body and a ladder tightening system and more ankle support.
$7 to hire
size 2 - adults size 14
Lace up and come only without toe picks.
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.
Zimmer Frame, for the ice:
$3 for 30 minutes
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.
$5 for 30 minutes
A skate aid seals (unfortunately not real seals, though they are suited to this climate) are comfortable and bright plastic seal-shaped seats that parents can push their kids around on.
**Helmets must be worn whilst using the skate aids**
FREE with skating admission
XXS - XXL
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.
