Fret not if the kiddos are unable to ice skate as they do provide lessons. What’s more, skating aids are also available in the form of adorable “penguin”, “seal” and “snowman” for children of varying ages, so they’ll be able to ice skate like a pro in no time and whizz about in the Olympic-sized rink.
If your children are interested in taking ice skating classes, The Rink’s Kids Learn-To-Skate programme offers a progressive series of basic ice skating levels that is customized for kids from ages 3 to 5 as well as Learn-To-Skate Core Blades (Basic) lessons that are tailored for children ages 6 years and above.
