Don’t just take out word for it! Sydney ice rink Ice Zoo offers the most fun you can have on ice – come and see for yourself, you’ll be most welcome! They’re open seven days a week, and provide a huge range of sessions. Bordering the Eastern Suburbs, Newtown and Marrickville, Ice Zoo gives you much more than you would expect to find at an ice rink.
As well as the traditional features, Ice Zoo features public skating sessions and Learn To Skate classes. They also provide Sydneysiders young-and-old with the opportunity to play ice hockey, take part in ice fitness classes, host birthday parties or experience the magic of live DJ nights with fantastic light shows.
Ice Zoo focuses on safety, entertainment and fun. It’s all delivered to the highest standard, not only on the rink, but also at the Ice Zoo cafe and licensed bar, which are open at all times the centre is operating.
Then there are the Ice Zoo Igloos – just the thing for parties! You and your guests can celebrate milestones in an informal gathering all by yourselves.
