That feeling of being on ice, moving gracefully as the world zips by around you, feeling the cool wind in your face... is almost magical. And while experiencing the real thing is expensive, the cheaper alternative is to head to 1 of the 4 indoor ice skating rinks in Singapore, of which the latest is The Rink @ Jcube.

The Rink offers both basic and advance skating lessons, but for those who just want a short introduction to skating, The Rink has that as well. Equipment like skate boots can be rented / bought here as well. If you wish to save money, make sure to bring your own gloves and socks!

Generally, ice skating at The Rink is done in blocks of 2 hours per session, and after each session, everyone has to leave to let the staff clean and prepare the area for the next session. It's best to reach about 15 - 20 minutes before each session begins, to prepare and purchase tickets and equipment. That way, you'll maximize the money spent.

The are 2 main differences between The Rink @ JCube and other indoor ice skating rinks in Singapore. First, the size of The Rink conforms to the Olympic standard for indoor ice skating rinks. Because of this, the Singapore Ice Skating Association and the Singapore Ice Hockey Team hold their training sessions here, and these sessions are open to the public for viewing.

Secondly, The Rink offers rink-side dining, and there are quite a few cafes and restaurants located around both the third and fourth level of JCube which offers good views of the area. On weekends, at night, The Rink holds a Disco Night On Ice, which is a highlight for both the participants and the viewers!

On the flip side, you do have to be 'thick-skinned' when ice skating here, as the area is open for public viewing. So if you're prone to feeling self-conscious or think you'll embarrass yourself, you might want to give The Rink a miss. However, ice skating is a somewhat unique activity, and may be a good activity for bonding, exercising, or for breaking the routine of life.

If you're planning a visit, do note that general viewing is free, but admission to The Rink costs SGD $21.50 including rental of equipment, and SGD $14 without rental. Allocate between 1 to 2 hours for ice skating, and less than 1 hour for viewing.
