BOOK TICKETS

What if it is raining?

You get wet! The rink can operate in nearly all weather conditions. Please bring suitable outdoor clothing. This is an outdoor event and no refunds will be given due to inclement weather. In the unlikely event that the Event Manager deems it necessary to close the ice rink, alternative sessions will be offered for skating, subject to availability.


Bookings

Our online booking service is available here, booking is strongly recommended. To book a party/private event or school trip, please visit our groups page or contact 01653 619169 for more information. Please arrive at least 30 minutes before your slot to allow for skate hire & fitting.

Booking is strongly recommended.

With space limited on each session, The Ice Factor strongly recommends you book in advance to avoid disappointment. Weekends and school holidays are particularly busy, so don’t risk it, book it!


Skate Hire

Skate hire is included in the price of the ticket and our sizes range from child size 9 through to adult size 15. It is advisable to arrive 30 minutes prior to your booking time, so we can fit you with your skates to give you a full hour on the ice.


Penguin Hirebobohelp

To help your toddler get confident on the ice, we have special ice shoes as well as our stabiliser Bobo the Penguin, who is joined by more of his friends this year. You can hire Bobo or his friends for £2.00 per session. Subject to availability.

Bobo skating aids will not be bookable in advance and are sold on a first come first
served basis. They are hired out at the management’s discretion and may not be
available on certain sessions. Strict height restrictions of one metre or below apply.

 

If your child can walk, we can get them skating!


Snowman Hire

For the Bambi’s on ice that are too tall for a Penguin we have our stabiliser Buddy the Snowman, who will be right there next to you should you need a helping hand. You can hire Buddy or his friends for £2.00 per session. Subject to availability.

Buddyskating aids will not be bookable in advance and are sold on a first come first
served basis. They are hired out at the management’s discretion and may not be

If you need that extra help, Buddy will be there for you!
