The benefits of portable ice rink hire

 

Whether you’re looking for a temporary ice skating rink for an outdoor event, or creating a festive winter wonderland experience in a city centre, there are a number of benefits to hiring a rink on a temporary or semi-permanent basis:

 

  • Outdoor ice skating is typically seasonal, so the ice rink can be removed after a certain time, preventing you from paying for an attraction that isn’t bringing you a good return on investment
  • Ice rinks can be installed to your exact requirements, built and customised to your exact specifications
  • An outdoor ice rink will attract people to your event, increasing both footfall and revenue for the traders involved in the event
  • The barriers around the rink provide good advertising space, further increasing the revenue that you can make from hiring an ice rink
  • Mobile ice rinks can be installed and uninstalled quickly and efficiently, meaning minimal downtime and disruption to businesses in the area
  • Temporary structures can be installed around the rink to create changing rooms, cafés, bars, restaurants and ticket offices.
  • Temporary rinks can be used for all ages and all abilities – special children’s rinks, skating aids and event lessons can be provided.
  • What’s more ice skating is an excellent form of aerobic exercise, temporary rink attractions encourage communities, families and friends to take part in something fun and active.
