A few friendly reminders and guidelines to make your party run smoothly: 

  • Please check-in at the Skatium office no earlier than 5 minutes before your scheduled party time. If you require set-up time, please invite your guests to arrive 10-15 minutes after your start time. 
  • Please respect the party ahead of yours by refraining from entry into the rink or room until they have cleared the area. 
  • All personal belongings must be removed from the room and, or ice rink when your allotted time is concluded so that staff can prepare for the next party. Please be advised that in the event of a late arrival we may not be able to extend your contracted times due to other events scheduled in the facility. Please wear loose and comfortable clothing. Long pants, leggings or tights are strongly encouraged to avoid scrapes on the ice. Baggy clothes are NOT recommended. 
  • Because it is an ice rink, wearing layers is recommended, as well as wearing gloves and hats.
