Every day during the school holidays there will also be roving performers on hand to add an air of excitement.

Ice Skating

Spin round the ice on the Snow Time Ice Skating Rink. The extended Ice Rink with allocated junior section gives skaters lots of room to glide around like a pro. Skating sessions last for 20 minutes and start at 10 am every day. Skating session tickets can only be reserved on the day at the ticket booth located outside the Ice Skating marquee. We recommend booking a session early to ensure you don’t miss out!
