Although it was only my youngest daughters first time skating and my oldest daughters second, they were both determined to keep on skating despite their many falls. In the end they did the full 2 hour skate session and were the last ones to leave the rink.
The staff were wonderful! They could see that my two girls weren't experienced skaters and they spent a lot of time encouraging and giving them pointers, despite the centre being busy over the school holidays.
Ages and abilities varied greatly, yet it seemed to work really well.
Mid way through the 11am-1pm skate session the kids were "starving" so we got some sandwiches and hot chips from the kiosk. The food was fresh, tasty and really good value.
As well as the general skate sessions, there are also various Learn to Skate lessons. Lessons are one hour in duration and only cost $12! (with the option of joining in the general skate session for FREE!).
Learn to Skate Lessons are on:

We had a fantastic time at Sk8House and can highly recommend the staff and facilities.
