Skate aids

Skate aids

Our skate aids are great for children's first steps on the ice

Skate aids are available for young children (5 years old or younger) who are unable to skate confidently and require assistance with their first steps onto the ice. There are a limited number available for hire, therefore they're subject to availability.

On busy sessions we may limit the number of skate aids that are available to hire. On sessions that have a high number of skaters we will not hire out any skate aids, ask at the Box Office when you purchase your tickets for availability of the skate aids.


Cost: £10.00 (includes a refundable deposit of £5.00 when the skate aid is returned on the session it was used on)

Conditions of use:

  • Available to children aged up to 5 years old only.
  • Skate aid users must be wearing skates.

  • Skate aids must be returned to Skate Hire and your receipt must be stamped or signed by a member of Skate Hire staff in order to receive your deposit back.
  • Skate aids must be returned to Skate Hire at least 15 minutes before the end of the public skating session to enable us to refund your deposit.
