Silver Blades with it's friendly atmosphere and popular location, is fun for all the family! In every way the coolest way to spend time with the kids plus it's healthy and great for getting more graceful too! Silver Blades has a nice little selection of skating sessions for you to choose from that cover all the basic ice based needs: Public and Disco Sessions, Birthday Parties and Hockey Basics Courses, as well as practice time for figure skaters and hockey teams of all ages.
This is definitely an epic spot to bring younger children to, as on top of the regular stuff there are some bonus activities and facilities just for them! The Dinky Rink is a smaller, separate skating area on which they hold Penguin Club, munchkin lessons and birthday parties plus they sometimes make it a sensory experience by adding coloured lighting effects and picture projections! There's also a fab Parent and Toddler session where they lay on little ice bikes and cars for having fun on the slippery stuff! There's also talk of a snow pit, but we're not sure what that is so it'll have to be a surprise!
If yours are too old for that but they haven't skated before there's no need to worry, they offer friendly tuition in their Learn To Skate courses for children and adults to get started on the ice together. Plus Penguin skate aids are available to hire for those who want some steady company! The Penguin is a chunky buddy who won't fall over that you can hang on to while you find your feet! Be careful though, while they're great for getting started experts recommend that you don't let them get too attached to them long term as they hinder skating development!
