The kids enjoyed ice skating but I do think it's a bit much after paying £25 for an adult and a child i then had to pay £5 for a penguin skating aid for 1 hour. Food could be better too.More

Hi, I am looking to start a new hobby and as a youngster I skated with friends at the "Ice bowl" quite regularly. Now, aged 44 I am looking to try skating again.
