A Spooky ‘Scare Skate’ Rink Is Gliding Into Manchester This Halloween

Skate Manchester is opening a little earlier this year.

Following its cancellation last Christmas as a result of the pandemic, Skate Manchester is set to return bigger and better than ever – and this time, it’s not just reserved for the Christmas festivities. Kicking off the excitement on October 22nd, Skate will be transforming their rink for the spooky season, providing a fun activity to Mancs to enjoy over Halloween.

Complete with Halloween-themed music and decorations, guests are invited to chase monsters on the ice and even attend in their own fancy dress, too, with the backdrop of Halloween in the City’s inflatable monsters climbing on the buildings and setting a super spooky tone for the occasion.

Rob Derry, ice director at Arena, said of the upcoming event: “There’s a real buzz around Halloween in Manchester. The city is a major destination for anyone looking to get into the spooky spirit thanks to Monsters in the City, an amazing spectacle that brings larger than life fun and fear.

“Scare Skate offers something brand new: an exciting, active, and creative activity, in a breath-taking setting, that brings chills and thrills for families, friends and colleagues looking to celebrate the season. We’re hoping to see as many people in fancy dress as possible.

“We’ve pulled out all the stops to provide a bigger rink for our customers so they can enjoy more room to skate. The ice rink will be nearly double the size of previous years so there will also be more room to pull off showstopping moves … or stumble towards a barrier for balance! We think this will be our best year yet.”

Covered from the elements, Mancs will be able to enjoy the rink whatever the weather, with tickets on sale now.
