Ice Rink Hire Across The UK - Let Us Bring The Fun to You
Did you know that, thanks to the growing popularity of ice rink hire, we don’t have to wait on our fickle and unpredictable weather to enjoy the delight of ice skating? Hiring an ice rink is a brilliant way to raise funds, create an unforgettable kiddies party, or simply have a good laugh at our fellow work mates during a team building event.
Why Hire an Ice Rink?
The question should probably be, “Why not hire an ice rink?”
Ice rink hire is an ideal attraction for:
- Charity events
- Fund raising for non-profit organisations
- Church events
- Company team building events
- Birthday parties
- And as an excellent way for malls to draw extra foot traffic during peak shopping times
Sadly, those of us living within cities or the more central areas of the UK aren’t likely to have access to frozen lakes where we can hone our (dubious) ice-skating skills. That’s no longer an issue however, with companies such as Ice Magic who are able to put together a synthetic ice rink where and when you want it – no matter the weather.
What Do You Need To Know About Ice Rink Hire?
Before we get ahead of ourselves though, let’s just make sure we know exactly what is involved in ice rink hire for your exciting upcoming event.
What You Need To Set Up An Ice-Rink.
Depending on the size of the ice rink you require, you will need a suitable location to set everything up. You will need a firm and flat surface, as well as access to power, water and ablutions. Remember too, that there are likely to be some large vehicles delivering the ice rink so they will also need safe access and parking.
If you are not setting up your ice rink in a private space and are hoping to make use of a public park or similar area, then you will need permission from your local council.
For larger events, it’s definitely a good idea to plan well in advance to ensure that the ice rink hire company you are using can accommodate you. You will need to furnish them with dates, length of hire, and expected number of people so that they can plan for your exact requirements.
Check What’s Included
Most reputable and experienced ice rink hire companies will offer a turnkey solution, especially for larger events. These will include everything from skates to insurance. (More about this in a moment.)
What Else Will You Offer?
Not everyone is an ice-skating fan, so if you’re hoping to draw families and groups of people, then be sure to include other attractions. Food is a must! What about including craft stalls, clowns or jugglers, coffee bars, fairground rides and photo booths?
Let Everyone Know
Finally, and most importantly, be sure to publicise your event in advance to allow people to make plans to attend.
