The Rink @ JCube

Post by poodlek » Thu, 10 May 2012 10:41 pm

We've been a few times and it's pretty fun for a good wholesome activity. The first time I got out on the ice I couldn't stop grinning :-D I hadn't skated in 10 years at least.

It's pretty pricy compared to the public rinks back home, but for the fun we have we can afford $14 for a 2 hour session. It's $3 extra to rent skates, and they may not be very sharp, it's kind of a crap shoot there. This last time I asked for their sharpest skates and they got some down from the very top shelf but they were still pretty dull. BUT, if you have your own skates or you're too much of a novice to notice whether they're sharp or not, this won't be a problem.

We got my son his first pair of skates, ordered from overseas of course since they don't sell tiny skates here, and we tried them out yesterday. A good time was had by all.

Hi There, glad you had a great time!
have you ever tried the ice rink at Marina Bay's?
and wondering whether you would know how much it would be at Marina Bay's (guess should be pretty pricey right?)

Thanks!

I haven't been there, and didn't know anything about it until I googled it. The price is $7 for the first hour, $5 for each additional hour and you must rent skates (bringing your own is not allowed) for $3. So the cost is comparable to a two hour session at JCube. I doubt we will be going there as our son is only 15 months old, and the minimum age at MBS rink is 5. Minimum age at JCube is 4 but we have developed a relationship with the rink folks as my husband is there twice a week at least to play hockey, so they let us take him.

The Marina Bay rink is one of those plastic fake ice things. I haven't been on that particular one but have been on something similar before and it was terrible. A friend went to the Marina Bay one and did say it was pretty rubbish compared to real ice.
