Rugs Rats on Ice at Xtreme Ice in Mirrabooka is a dedicated session for children aged 5 years and under. The sessions run Wednesdays and Fridays 10am – 12pm during term time. Sessions costs $10 per child and $5 per adult which includes skate hire and a free coffee for adults.
Parents and guardians must accompany children on the ice but don’t worry if you can’t skate as you walk on the ice in your shoes. Kids can choose to wear their own shoes or, if they are feeling a bit confident, can opt for ice skates. Ice boots are available from a size 10 which was fine for my 4 year old. For smaller feet, there are adjustable skate shoes which have 2 blades and fit over your child’s own shoe.
Rug Rats on Ice is fantastic fun for both the kids and adults! There is a big mound of snow with buckets and spades so kids can have a great time building their own snowman. Don’t forget to bring along a pair of gloves!
There is an assortment of toys to play with on the ice. The ride on toys were lots of fun. Miss 4 and I really got some enjoyment out of the Cozy Coupee! It gave me something to hold on to and speed along and she loved racing around the rink in it.
If your child wants to have a go a skating then you can hire a penguin skating aid for an additional $5. The frame aids pictured are no longer available to use.
There is also a fully qualified coach on hand to show kids and adults the basics of ice skating.
If you are accompanied by a younger sibling don’t be put off going along as prams are welcome on the ice. Understandably you are not allowed to carry any children on the ice.
Make sure you rug up in warm clothes as it is quite chilly in there. It is also a good idea to take along a spare set of clothes to change into after the session as your child will probably end up with a damp bottom from sitting on the ice.
After our Rugs Rats on Ice session, we enjoyed our free coffee and some chips and gravy in the cafe to warm us up. Food brought in from outside is not permitted.
Xtreme Ice is located at 15 Chesterfield Road, Mirrabooka. For more information visit www.xtremeice.com.au
