Worthing’s Ice Rink Questions & Answers What time is the Ice Rink open? The Ice Rink is open daily 10am to 9pm from 31st January 2009 to 1st March 2009. The last session starts at 8pm and finishes at 9pm. Can I just turn up on the day? There will be a limited number of tickets available for those that turn up on the day but to avoid disappointment we strongly recommend pre booking via Worthing Theatres on 01903 206206. What ages are eligible for the child price? The child price applies to ages 16 and under. Children aged 8 and under should have a skating adult with them on the ice. What happens if it is raining? It is common practice for temporary Ice Rinks not to be covered. Skating can go ahead in most weather conditions but the Rink Manager will suspend skating if it is not safe. If the rink is closed then skaters will be able to arrange another suitable session with the on site team. If another session cannot be offered then claims for a refund should be directed to the Worthing Town Centre Initiative 01903 203252. Please note if it is safe to skate and individuals choose not to then another session will not be offered. If skaters wish to confirm whether a session is going ahead before leaving home they can call 07765 802909. Can I Park near to the Ice Rink? There is on street parking around Steyne Gardens - the 3 bays to the North of the gardens have been suspended to allow vehicles needed for the Ice Rink to be accommodated so these are not available to the public. If there is no parking available around the gardens then the High Street Multi-storey Car Park is less than 2 minutes walk away. Will I be able to get refreshments? There will be a concession in the marquee selling hot drinks / cold drinks / biscuits and confectionary. Worthing has a fantastic restaurant offer within easy walking distance of Steyne Gardens should skaters want something more substantial. What Skate sizes will be available? Skates are included in the session price and child shoe size 8 to adult 13 can be accommodated. Will there by any skating lessons available? At the start of every session there will be a safety briefing which will include some basic skating tips. There are also skate marshals on the ice who will be able to offer assistance but there are no formal skating lessons available. Is it possible to take a Wheelchair onto the Ice? It is possible to take a wheelchair onto the ice with a skating carer at the less busy sessions. The Worthing Town Centre Initiative on 01903 203252 will try to accommodate Wheelchair users but the safety of the wheelchair user and other skaters is paramount. Requests for Wheelchair access can only be arranged at sessions where skating numbers deem it to be safe.
