Spooky Skate & Bumper Cars

Walk over or take the next hayride to the Centre Ice Rink where public ice skating sessions and the new SPOOKY bumper cars on ice await you!

The bumper cars on ice are a must! Zoom around the ice and come experience a thrill that nobody else around has. Bump your friends and family and send them twirling hysterically around the ice. (Bumper cars are separate and not included in the gate admission.)

Bumper car rides are only $5 each for 5 minutes long (it feels long when you are on them).

Public skate and skate rentals are included in your gate admission (free)!

Bring your favorite trick-or-treating buckets and stop at the ice rink for some sweet treats!
