Where are we going today?

Everything's cooler on the ice! Chaparral Ice are a super cool skate rink in Northcross Mall where the whole family can join in with the daily public skating sessions!

Ice skating is a lot of fun, and great exercise for kids! It's also a great way for the them develop their balance, coordination, flexibility, and social skills!

Get the whole family out on the ice! Whether you're a beginner or advanced, you are more than welcome. Beginners, no need to be nervous because you will be surrounded by kids of your same experience level, holding onto those edges finding their feet!

The skate sessions last from 3 hours to 5 hours depending on the day, and how's this - kids under 5 get in free on weekdays with a paid admission! Pretty cool huh!?

If you find that the kids have taken a shine to the ice, they can attend some of their skate classes which are perfect for all ages, both beginners and advanced. They have classes for 3-5 year olds, and classes for 6 and up so you know that will learning with kids their own age, where they can be sure to learn at their own pace.

What's even more cool - for those 6 and up, they can take advantage of the free 30 minute introductory class so they can see if it's something they will like before actually taking part in the lessons themselves. 

For kids aged 6 - 14 they can attend summer camps! There are two camp options, one is a general fun activity filled day camp, and the other is a skating training camp for those who might be a bit more serious about improving their techniques.

And we know you are thinking it - yes they do birthday parties! Kids get a 30 minute beginner skate group lesson before enjoying 2 hours of fun skate time so even those who have never set a skate on the ice can feel like they can get a handle on it before play time begins. 

If your kids are keen to make new friends, skating certainly is a great way to break the ice! (Sorry, we couldn't resist!)
