3 Excellent Reasons to Hire a Synthetic Ice Rink

As we head into winter, we may think of dusting off our ice skates and start looking for nearby ice-skating venues. There’s nothing like a little fresh, cold air and the feeling of freedom as we glide around on the ice. 

Of course, the winter season also has us thinking about year-end functions, community events, fundraisers or team building days. 

If either of these scenarios rings true for you, then we’d like for you to consider hiring a synthetic ice rink. 

Synthetic rinks, also known as iceless ice rinks or plastic ice rinks, are simply perfect as a safe and super-fun activity where people are gathered together. 

Why should I hire a synthetic ice rink?

Supplied, installed, and managed

If you’ve ever been tasked with organising an event for your company then you’ll know that it can be a real headache. You’re trying to bring the various elements together, find the right service providers, and make sure it’s all done on time and within budget.

Over the years our customers have come to depend on our decades of experience. This means that:

  • There are no surprises
  • Your ice rink is delivered, set up and managed for you
  • We remove our equipment and clear the site after the event
  • We provide everything you need including ice skates, blade sharpeners, safety barriers, and a team of friendly professionals
  • We can bolt on other services quickly and easily, including:
    • Company branded signage
    • Music and lighting
    • Food and beverages
    • Tables and chairs

All we need from you is a date, a time, and a hard, flat surface to set up the ice rink. Whether you need a funky little 6 x 5m rink for young children or a massive 20 x 15m for a larger group, we do it all. 

Eco friendly

Did you know that when you choose to hire a synthetic ice rink you are making an eco-friendly choice? 

Natural ice rinks require power to maintain the temperature of the ice. However, the seamless panels which make up the skating surface of a synthetic ice rink need no power at all. 

Therefore, you can arrange to hire an ice rink which can be set up for days or weeks if necessary and will only require the occasional sweep to keep it clean and ready for fun.

The best fun ever

It really doesn’t matter how old you are; ice skating is fun! 

When you’re arranging an event, you can guarantee that if families are going to be present, then an ice rink is going to be a winner. Children can (and will) exhaust themselves as they whizz around the rink which makes it a safe and healthy pastime. 

More corporate and team building events than ever are including synthetic ice rinks. Why? Simply because they create a happy and exciting activity for stressed-out professionals to relax and have some fun. 

Hiring an ice rink – FAQs

Still not convinced? Let us run through some of the FAQs that we encounter to help you make a decision.

  • Can I put an ice rink indoors? 

You can have it indoors or outdoors. We just need access for our trucks and a hard, flat surface. 

  • What about the skates?

We provide skates in various sizes to cater for all.

  • What if someone hurts themselves?

Our team are trained to assist with any injuries and are present to make sure that the ice rink remains a safe place for everyone.
