Brisbane’s weather is warming up, so if you are looking for ways to cool off this spring school holiday season, Iceworld Boondall has loads of activities on offer.
Located on Sandgate Road, Iceworld Boondall has an Olympic-sized ice rink, cosy coffee shop and a fully-stocked skate shop.
Ice Skating Queensland sport and business development manager Andrew Leventis said the popular school holiday venue was all about ice skating, laughter, good food, music and a tonne of fun.
“People have such a blast ice-skating,” he said.
“It is obviously very appealing when it is hot outside – it is only 10 degrees inside our facility – and from the amount of return customers we have, you can see how addictive it is.”
Andrew said Iceworld’s daily school holiday public sessions were extremely popular with the whole family and a highlight of the holidays. As well as regular evening and weekend times, there are school holiday sessions from Monday to Friday, from 10.30am to 12.30pm and 1pm to 3pm
“You don’t need any experience to step out onto the ice – we have floor guards who assist people who are struggling and you can always just hug the wall for a bit while you get your confidence up,” Andrew said.
“We also have penguins – not real ones – that are a supportive piece of equipment for younger kids to give them more confidence when they are learning.”
There are plenty of reasons to visit the centre outside the school holidays as well, including an expansive venue space, ice sports and the highly popular birthday parties.
“Our major learn-to-skate program runs during each school term and is known as Iceworld Skate School. People who come to a public session and love skating often end up attending these skate school programs and learn all the basics and how to improve their skating skills,” Andrew said.
“There are classes for all levels and ages, from beginner Tiny Tots classes to adult classes for beginners with no experience, which are in huge demand.” For information visit www.iceworld.com.au.Iceworld Boondall 2304 Sandgate Rd, Boondall P 07 3865 1694
