What to do on arrival at JW3

Please bring your ticket or order reference number to the JW3 Box Office to collect your wristband. For busier sessions you may have to queue so please ensure that you arrive at least 15 minutes before your session starts.

What happens in bad weather?

The Ice Rink is open come rain or shine. Please dress according to the weather conditions on the day. You are advised to wear gloves to protect your hands from the cold, and to help to minimise injuries in the event of falling on the ice. Climatic conditions may cause a layer of water on the ice surface, this will not affect your skating and does not make it unsafe to skate. Although you may get wet if you fall over!

Refund policy

No refunds will be made unless our management have found it necessary to close the ice rink due to health and safety or technical concerns. Customers are reminded that this is an outdoor event. Refunds due to adverse weather conditions will only be made if these weather conditions have necessitated the closure of the rink.

Wheelchair Users

Manual wheelchair users are welcome on the Ice Rink as long as they are accompanied on the ice by a companion. Wheelchair users must be accompanied by a responsible person in skates at all times when on the ice. Normal charge applies for the wheelchair user with a free ticket for the companion, please contact the JW3 Box Office to book.
Unfortunately due to safety concerns electric wheelchairs cannot be accommodated on the ice.
