Go Ice Skating at the Ice Castle at Castle Plaza


South Australia has never experienced a white Christmas and rarely gets any snow at all, so the chance for Adelaide kids to go ice skating is pretty much limited to commercial venues like the Ice Arena.

During the July school holidays kids in Adelaide will get a special chance to go ice skating at South Australia's first synthetic recreational ice skating rink - Ice Castle conveniently located at Castle Plaza in Edwardstown. A ninety square meter skating rink will be located inside the southern entrance of Castle Plaza from July 5-18 with 45 minute skating sessions taking place between 10am and 3pm daily.

There will also be demonstrations featuring Adelaide Adrenaline Ice Hockey Players and figure skaters at noon every day.

The unique skating rink uses special technology to create a an arena that looks and feels like ice, but uses no water or power. Why freeze yourself on real ice when you can be warm indoors on a synthetic rink?

Time to Get Your Skates On


Skaters can enter Castle Plaza's Facebook competition, which could see them crowned the Prince or Princess of the Ice Castle and win a private Ice Party for 20 friends. Local primary schools have also been invited to enter a competition to win the exclusive use of the rink before it opens to the public.

Children 5 years and older can get out on the synthetic ice for just $5 per 45 minute session (accompanying adults are free), with all funds raised being donated directly to children's charity Ronald McDonald House Charities. That's a very economical way to keep kids happy and fit for nearly an hour during the school holidays, when it can be a challenge finding fun things to do.

Skaters are also encouraged to leave messages of hope for the families staying at Ronald McDonald House. Each skater receives a paper snowflake to write a message on and place around the rink.

Ronald McDonald House Charities is an independent charity that that helps seriously ill children and their families, and Ronald McDonald House Adelaide gives families a comfortable and home away from home while their seriously ill child is being treated at the nearby Women's and Children's Hospital. Opened in January 2000, the House can accommodate 20 families each night and has already supported more than 3000 rural families during one of the most difficult times of their lives.

Parking at Castle Plaza is free and plentiful even during the school holidays, and it offers a range of school holidays activities. You will need to book to go ice skating at the Ice Castle - you can do that in person at Castle Plaza or online where you can find more information also on their Facebook page.
