Plan a perfect treat for all the family with a festive skate on the ice at Skating at Life that is part of the Newcastle and Gateshead Winter Festival.
The ice rink is open every day except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day from Saturday 10th November until Sunday 24th February 2019. There’s no need to book if you’re visiting with fewer than 10 people, just turn up and pay on the day, however booking is required for Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve when booking is essential for those busy days. If you wish to book for 10 people or more or a birthday party you can book in advance and take advantage of special group packages and rates.
Make a day of it by visiting Life Science Centre’s 4D Motion Ride, amazing planetarium, live theatre shows and brilliant hands-on activities. Pick up a combo ticket to receive science centre admission AND skating – these special tickets are available from 3rd December to 24th February 2019. Santa will be at Life on Saturdays and Sundays from 17th November to 23rd December, 1pm – 5pm so think about combining the two for a fabulous family day out.
Family tickets – £30 for 2 adults and 2 children or 1 adult and 3 children.
Children – £9.50 for children 5 years to 17 years
Children under 5 years – £4
Adult – £12
Skating time is approximately 45 to 50 minutes on the ice and tickets include skate hire. See the website for daily opening times.
