New ice, new season Get ready, let’s go!
The new ice is now ready and the ice rink open for the new season at The PEAK. This mammoth build by our ice tech team took over two weeks and included -
170,000 litres of water removed in 1 day
6 gallons of blue paint
2 gallons of red paint
440kg of white paint over 3 coats
2526 feet of tape
448 man hours
90,000 litres of water put on over 14 floods
A huge thanks to our ice team who’ve worked so hard - have a look at how they did it here - https://youtu.be/-FchLh5vOo0 .
- The ice rink at The PEAK will remain temporarily closed due to a technical fault in the ice plant and is not likely to open until week commencing 13 February
at the earliest. The repairs have now been made to the pipework however unfortunately during this period the ice plant had to be switched off to allow the repairs to be made, which in turn has caused the ice and the paintwork on the ice to be unfit for use. We will have to relay and repaint the existing ice so that the rink becomes fully functional once more and this is likely to take at least 10 or more days.
We are now rebuilding the ice to get the ice rink re opened as soon as we possibly can and will update once this is near completion. We apologise to everyone for the inconvenience caused - please keep checking this page for updates.
