- Ice Skating and Rollerskating
Suitable for ages: Older Children (9-12) and Teenagers (13-18)
Venue type: Indoor
Simply Skate is a largely inline skating arena (other skates welcome some sessions) with child friendly cafe, bouncy castle and spectator gallery: everything you need for wheely fun afternoon! (Bouncy castle available during parties)
If planning in advance with beginners they also offer lessons suitable to varying age ranges and skill levels, as well as parties for the special days. There's also an inline hockey rink here too so strap those skates on and see what you can do! Plus there's a well-stocked pro shop on site too so if you are turning toward a specific roller discipline then you've got everything you'll need on hand right here, along with some good advice, if you want it!
During the summer holidays they also offer Skating Crash Courses, Summer Activity Days and Under 18s Club Nights! So use the link to check their timetables and see what extra fun you can bag for your buck!
If you've never been roller skating before don't let the potential crowds out you off: you'll find that the kids tend to block it all out after the first 5 minutes and naturally focus on their footwork! The only times to avoid with absolute beginners are the really peak sessions and Friday or Saturday nights, when it tends to be louder, darker, and harder to concentrate. But on the other hand it's harder to see you fall over, so the choice is yours!
