We are really excited to announce the opening of our rink in Tilgate Park, Crawley 2019. We are relocating in front of Smith and Western and are open throughout Tilgate Park’s Magical Christmas.

Our fully covered ice rink offers a fun filled experience for the whole family whatever the weather. All ages from 4 years are welcome to skate whatever your level of ability and our friendly family of penguins will be available for hire for our younger skaters.

Accessibility – We welcome all wheelchair users and users with additional needs on all sessions and may be accompanied by a carer (who skates free of charge), if needed. Please be aware that during our busy peak times the rink can get very busy and we may need to restrict the number of wheelchairs in a particular session. Please call us if you wish to book in a group or have any questions, or need special arrangements. 

Opening times:

From 13.00hrs – 20.45hrs Mon – Fri Term Time.
From 10.00hrs – 20.45hrs Weekends and School Holidays.

All sessions are 45 minutes maximum and start on each hour. Last session starts at 20.00hrs.

We have teamed up with Smith and Western for Birthday, Christmas parties, corporate  events and welcome all organisations i.e. Scouts, Guides etc. Why not come for a skate and dine? Book your skate tickets with us and your table at Smith and Western, Tilgate Park, for a meal afterwards, or for a lighter meal grab a burger and hot chocolate to warm up.
