Cool Coast Ice Rink BIC

BIC Cool Coast Ice Rink Review

I was invited for a session at the Cool Coast Ice Rink at the BIC, which is open to the public until February 19th.

The impressively sizeable rink is located in the BIC’s Purbeck Hall and includes the main skating area as well as a smaller children’s area. For youngsters that feel ready to brave the main ice rink the assistance of adorable ‘Ice skating penguins’ are available and the friendly Cool Coast Ice Rink staff are always on hand to help you back up again!

After a couple of rounds holding onto the sides I had a good go at doing a few relatively fast circuits; the mixture of festive, old school and chart hits playing through the speakers certainly gave some good rhythm to the experience! The sessions are 90 minutes long, which, even for the most novice skaters, is long enough to really get into it. During the session skaters and spectators can enjoy tasty refreshments at the Alpine Bar located in the hall where mince pies, and a selection of delicious hot beverages are available, including the Terrace Chocolate Orange! A variety of hospitality packages are also now available.

I recommend the Cool Coast Ice Rink to any one that fancies a fun, fast paced (or slow!) and exhilarating evening with family, friends and work colleagues during the festive period and into the new year!
