The return of the super entertaining craze ‘Bumperballs on Ice’ is set to be bigger and better than ever before.

Suitable for ages 12 years and upwards, Bumperballs involves visitors strapping into an inflatable bubble suit so they can bounce, roll and laugh their way around the rink all while playing the craziest game of soccer they’ll ever experience!

Bumperballs takes place between 11am and 3pm daily.
