Relaxed Skating Sessions

Come along and enjoy one of our public skating sessions within a quiet and calm environment, with no music or flashing lights.

The sessions are perfect for those who would benefit from a more relaxed atmosphere – including those with a learning disability, an autism spectrum condition, or sensory and communication disorder.

They are open to all but designed for those who may find ice skating that little bit more challenging. We want to create and encourage an atmosphere where all our guests feel safe and in-control and able to exit the ice with ease at any time.

We want people of all ages and abilities to be able to enjoy the ice and encourage both families and individuals to come along to our monthly Relaxed Skating Sessions.

What’s different?

The music is turned off on the ice rink and within our Sub Zero café. The lighting is kept to our standard 200-lux setting, with no disco lighting or flashing lights.

Our Tots Zone will be available to use, with free equipment within the area.

On-ice equipment will be available to hire at standard cost price. Sledges are available upon request for those with mobility issues.
