Accessible Sessions

We have embarked on a journey of making recreational ice skating more accessible to more people. This project of improvement is ongoing and we anticipate this will be a continual programme of change and support, over the coming years.

Throughout this journey we welcome the advice and guidance of Charities and Support Organisations that work with people with a wide range of additional support requirements.

Cardiff’s Winter Wonderland has been supported and guided by

During relaxed access sessions lighting will become static, sound levels will drop and the capacity of the rink will be decreased to allow those who may need extra support, to enjoy the facility.

We will also have a hearing loop facility installed in our box office throughout the event, and a disabled viewing area for wheelchair users around the rink. This will be clearly signposted.

Guide dogs will be permitted onto the site, and drinking water for the dogs will be provided and located next to box office and signposted clearly.

Our accessibility guide is available here   .

We look forward to welcoming you to Winter Wonderland!
