Get Your Skates On

Families seeking a festive fun day out this Christmas are in for a treat at The SSE Arena, Belfast.
Elsa, Ana and Olaf, stars of the smash hit Disney on Ice show, Frozen, recently visited and kindly transformed The SSE Arena, Belfast into a winter wonderland complete with ice rink.

From December 22nd 2016 to January 2nd 2017 keen skaters can take to the ice and practice twirls and twists while parents can hire little bobby seals to help tiny beginners build up their confidence.

A special seasonal offer has been introduced for families looking to take a break from crowded Christmas shopping queues. They can take in a two hour skating session plus a Belfast Giants Game and a visit to W5 for just £59 for a family of four.

This Christmas, The SSE Arena, Belfast is also offering flexibility, if all three activities on one day is just too much excitement for the little ones, visitors can choose to enjoy skating and W5 visits on different days. The offer includes a family pass to a Belfast Giants game on 29th December, 30th December 2016 or 2nd January 2017.

Clare Gallagher, Commercial Manager, SSE Arena Belfast commented: “Every year in Belfast there are a couple of events that herald the arrival of Christmas and serve to get everyone in the festive spirit: the setup of the Continental Market at the City Hall and of course, Winter Skate at The SSE Arena, Belfast.

“This year we’re delighted to offer the ultimate festive family day out – and for the first time – to make it a flexible offering. We recognise that a morning exploring the delights of the award-winning W5, followed by a skating sprint around the ice, topped off with a high-octane Belfast Giants game is a massive day out, and might even be too much for some kiddies so we’re happy to welcome families back on another day. We’re looking forward to a very busy festive period!”

For those customers not availing of the fabulous family ticket they can enjoy a 90 minute ice skating session on any of the days the ice rink is open for just £8. Group discount will be applied for groups of 10 or more, priced at just £5.50 each.
