Icescape @ The Tropicana


Coming to the iconic Tropicana venue in Weston-super-Mare this Winter is an exciting new festive destination run by event specialists Icescape. Opening on Friday 25h October 2019, the event will run until Sunday 5th January 2020 and advance booking is advised. The event will be open 7 days a week, except Christmas day, from 10am-10pm (with the last skating session at 8pm). 

PLEASE NOTE: Closed Mondays and Tuesdays throughout November and on Friday 8th November due to Weston Carnival.

The venue and Box Office open 30 minutes before the first skating session of the day. The venue closes 15 minutes after the final skating session of the day. Opening hours and sessions vary.

Icescape @ The Tropicana is the largest covered Winter ice rink in the UK, with a capacity of over 500 people per session at one of Weston-super-Mare's iconic venue, The Tropicana. Their will also be a Santa’s grotto and an igloo bar so there is something on offer for all the family. The giant snow slide will get even the most non-competitive of friends and family racing to the finish and the festive food stalls and fairy-tale carousel will make this event a truly magical experience. 

The British weather certainly won't dampen any spirits as the ice rink will be covered with a fairy light marquee canopy that twinkles above! The Icescape rapid freeze, real ice technology provides a smooth ice surface, which guarantees the highest standard in skating experiences. With Pippen the penguin & friends available to hire as skating aids, it really is accessible to the whole family.

The spectacular Santa’s grotto is hidden within a North Pole themed igloo and your children will get the chance to meet the man himself and take away a quality, individually wrapped gift. For the rest, there will be plenty of ice tables in the artic bar to rest your drink upon and pull up a bar stool! 

Icescape @ The Tropicana has great links to the M5 and offers 3 hour free parking for online bookings in a designated seafront car park. The train station only a 10-minute walk away and trains to Bristol Temple Meads run every half an hour ... it's a winter event not to be missed
