Fun Skate Penguins

Look out for the penguins! The fun penguins are designed to help

younger children enjoy the ice with confidence (suitable for children under 1.2m and should not be used as an aid for skating – subject to availability).

It’s free to enter the Winter Wonderland event site, but there is a charge for additional activities. To avoid disappointment it’s advised that visitors book ice skating tickets in advance at cardiffswinterwonderland.com
