Get your (ice) skates on. The ice rink is back in town!

Ice skating in March!  Are you crazy?  Of course!  Iceworld is bringing back it's portable ice skating rink to Wellington City, and we have until May 10th to make the most of it.  Wednesday March 27th is the official opening day! Normal hours are 9am -10pm daily.

Enjoy the magic of the New Zealand 'winter' at an outdoor skating experience with all the fun and atmosphere of New York's Rockefeller Centre or Central Park, brought to the heart of Wellington City.

The only ice rink in Wellington and here for a short time only so don't miss your chance to have a go at ice skating on Wellington Waterfront.

Set under the sails outside TSB Arena, this is the ideal location for skating day or night.

The atmosphere of an outdoor rink can't be matched, no matter what time of day or night. Witness the evening sun setting on the horizon, and the glow of the city lights.

PRICES Adults: $20 Students: $15, skate hire included

Note: As there are a limited number of skaters allowed on the rink at a time, there may be a short wait to get on at the beginning, depending on popularity. Please arrive promptly. The web site says you can skate as long as you like. But we'll aim for a couple of hours after which we can go to the Chicago bar next door for a drink.



HOSTS NEEDED! We'd like to run as many of these as we can, while the rink is here in Wellington. If you are keen to host one or more, please let Tim know (via meetup email system).

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: Depends if you've done it before. Anywhere from 1 (easy) to 10 (you're a hazard!)

DISCLAIMER: Whilst every possible assistance will be offered, Adventure Wellington Trust, the Trustees, Event Organisers/hosts and members cannot be held responsible for any accident, injuries or losses sustained leading up to, during, or after an event.

NO SHOW POLICY: If you no show or cancel after 7pm the night before this event you will have a 'no show' recorded against your name. No shows can lead to you having to leave the group. Please read our Group Rules here
