Paradice Ice Skating Heading to Glenfield this April

Paradice Ice Skating skates into the North Shore this April with a spectacular real ice rink. They will be creating a magical wonderland at Active Zone, Downing St, Glenfield from 7pm Thursday April 14 and operating daily until Sunday May 1.

Whether you are a seasoned skater or a nervous novice, the Paradice skating staff will be on hand to ensure a premium skating experience and share some tips on how to stay upright! Ice skating is an exciting activity the whole family can share, plus the rink is completely covered ensuring that rain or shine, skating is enjoyable.

“We are really excited to be bringing the Paradice Mobile Ice to the North Shore for the first time,” explains Chris Blong, Paradice’s General Manager. “We take pride in not only giving people an introduction to skating, but doing things differently with great events and additional activities such as Frozen parties and night events adding to the atmosphere.”

The fun schedule of events will include themed weekends, free face-painting, games and giveaways for the kids, as well as evening events for the adults and teens with Student Night and DJ on Ice parties.

If once just isn’t enough, grab a five-skate concession card. These are priced at $75 for adults and $59 for children. These can be purchased at the rink reception and are valid anytime.
