Admiral Ice Rink

The Admiral Ice Rink will run from Thursday November 10 to Tuesday January 3 and after one of the wettest winters on record last year, Ice Rink operators 11th Hour Ice are reducing the risk of people missing out on skating sessions by looking to keep skaters super dry with a clear span roof and night lights

Minimum Age and Adult Supervision

For all sessions the minimum age for children to skate is 3 years old. All 3 to 7 year olds must be accompanied onto the ice by an adult (18 years old, or above) in skates.We recommend a maximum of 4 children per adult.

Fun Skate Penguins 

We have a limited number of Fun Skate Penguins available for hire. These Penguins will not be able to be booked in advance, and are hired on a first come, first served basis. They are only suitable for persons under 1.2M tall. For health and safety reasons we have to limit the number of Penguins offered. We thank you for your understanding in this matter.


We can accommodate all sizes up to and including adult size 15. For our younger skaters we go down to a junior size 8. (Junior size 6-7 is suitable for an size 8 shoe).

Wheelchair Users

We naturally want all our guests at Winter Wonderland to have a fantastic time.

After listening to our disabled guests, we have put pressure upon both our insurers and Health and Safety advisors to review the control measures in place restricting wheelchair users to wear ice grips.

I am pleased to say following pressure from us, our insurers have relaxed their stance in this matter, and we have instructed our Health & Safety consultant to write new control documents allowing wheelchair companions to be given the option of wearing either skates or ice grip shoes.

We sit between the end user of the rink, our guests, and our insurers and Health & Safety legislation.   Therefore, we must follow the guidance given by the insurers and Health & Safety consultants, so that we have valid insurance in place for the event.

Our insurers have taken a different stance following our feedback to them,  and we are pleased to pass on the new benefits to our wheelchair users and their companions.

We have also tried to facilitate relaxed sessions allowing 40 wheelchair users to take to the ice.  We have two allocated already for this season on December 22nd and 29th at 9.45am.

We shall be ensuring that for next year that there will be relaxed access sessions available to all our wheelchair users.

We have listened to feedback, and are grateful for that, and on behalf of all our wheelchair guests, we have achieved a successful outcome.
