An ice skating has the power to delight both young and young at heart and this is most certainly the case this winter at Eastland's Ice Rink. Ask anyone that remembers Ringwood's Ice Rink at the other end of Maroondah Highway and you will be taken back in time as soon as you buckle on those chunky black boots. The Ice Rink is not your super sized arena but there is enough room to move during your 45 minute skate session. The edges are the busiest spots with white knuckles gripping the sides while everyone finds their groove. Mamma says you need to grab a bright blue kangaroo quickly - there are only about a dozen and you will want one especially if you are escorting little ones. The juniors can sit on top and feel some wind in their faces while you scoot along behind them. Once off the ice, stop in for a sweet hot chocolate and a special treat at Sisko's pop up stand, right there at the skate hire tent.
Mamma's special mention: There is a special deal happening in the Town Square with participating restaurants too - spend $20.00 or more at any participating store* in the Town Square and receive a free ticket to the Ice Rink. Super great value if you are heading out for dinner and a skate afterwards!
