The Billingham Forum Ice Arena experience includes an improved ice pad and a terrific variety of sessions to accommodate all your icy interests! There's something for everyone to enjoy here.

Penguin Club is for children aged 18 months up to and including 4 years. This session gets kids involved with the slippery stuff from an early age; building up their confidence and co-ordination with free penguin and snowmen stability aids and ice toys to play with! 

Go Climb: Enter a climbing centre like no other. With 20 themed and unique climbing walls, a 22-foot vertical plunge slide, a spiral of rising towers to climb, plus a daring leap of faith challenge, you'll never get bored with Go Climb. Experienced members staff are onsite at all times to lend a hand – useful if you're new to climbing or just need that extra encouragement to reach the top of the wall.
