Ice skating fun for the whole family these school holidays
O'Brien Group Area is the perfect place for lots of family fun these school holidays with a jam-packed skating program that people of all ages can enjoy beginning December 21st - January 26th.

The super entertaining craze "Bumperballs on Ice" is making a comeback, and is set to be bigger and better than ever before. Suitable for those aged 12 and upwards, Bumperballs consists of visitors strapping into an inflatable bubble suit so they can bounce, roll and laugh their way around the rink whilst playing the craziest game of soccer of their life!

Bumperballs takes place between 11am and 3pm daily. Beat the queues by purchasing your tickets online and scan yourself through the new O'Brien Group Arena access gates. They'll have you through the door and on the ice before the rest!
