Birthday Parties
Birthday parties at the Arena are the coolest! Be prepared to take home "parent of the year" award when you suggest an Arena Birthday Party. Your kids will enjoy an action packed experience on the ice: skating with all their friends, dancing to their favourite tunes and enjoying a fun day out on their most special day of the year. Ice skating parties are the next big thing to hit Melbourne. As memorable for kids as they are relaxing for parents, our parties are fun and safe, even for first-timers! Parents can relax in knowing that we will deliver a totally unique experience for the kids, in a structured, secure environment.

Each skating party incorporates:
Food: tasty treats from our cafe and play activities in the party room
Gear: regular skate hire for every child, plus optional safety equipment
Lesson: a fun 15-minute lesson on the ice with trained Ice Ambassador prior to the General Skate session, enabling kids to find their feet on the ice and feel confident and secure in their skates.
Skating: Kids are then free to skate off with their friends in the skating venue boasting state-of-the-art sound and light systems, big screen and great DJs.

Review:


A quality skating centre with a huge public skating rink complete with video screen and music to complement the action on the ice. The rink is a bit chilly but not so cold that you have to wear heavy coats and there were plenty of people in T-shirts. There is plenty of equipment for hire with a huge range of skates, helmets and even metal frames for people just beginning. If you don't want a frame then there is plenty of room to hang onto on the side walls. If people are practicing ice hockey on the other rink, have a look because it is quite exciting.

There is a reasonably basic cafe. Beside the public skating rink, there is a rink for ice-hockey. If you want to get a feel for the game then stand behind the Perspex wall at the end where a goal-keeper is practicing. When he misses and the puck thunders into the wall, it makes a frightening sound.
