Wheels or blades, ice or land, just grab the kids, strap on your skates and glide, at one of these top spots to go skating in Singapore.
Even if you can’t fly off to a winter wonderland, it doesn’t need to be Christmas for you to enjoy the wonders of skating. Whether on the ice or off, you can’t deny the feeling of exhilaration as the world speeds by. This popular sport isn’t limited to the holiday season thanks to indoor skating rinks, but if you haven’t checked out these skating rinks yet, now’s definitely the time to give it a go! With that said, it’s time to pull on a pair of long trousers, a windbreaker or thin jacket, gloves, a pair of socks and skates (if you own a pair) and hit the ice. Better be quick, the ice is melting fast!
Where to go ice skating in Singapore
Kallang Ice World
Glide onto the rink at Kallang Ice World for an authentic on-ice experience. As the largest skating rink in Singapore, Kallang Ice World is a popular destination for both professional and non-professional skaters. With free support frames for kids and skating courses for anyone and everyone, you’ll be zooming across the ice in no time. Kallang Ice World is also available as a venue to book that extra special birthday party for the kids and it’s an ideal venue for performances and competitions. So if you prefer taking a backseat to the action, there’s prime seats in the viewing gallery.

The Rink at JCube
Located on Level 3 of the bustling JCube, The Rink is one of the more popular ice rinks in Singapore. On top of having real ice, there’s skating aids for all ages. The Seal aid is a little bit pricier but it’s worth it for giving the kids a ride on top of keeping you upright (and it’s cute to boot!). While it does get pretty busy with ice hockey tournaments and training sessions for the National Skating Association, there’s a helpful schedule on the website to let you know when the rink is open for public freestyle skating sessions. Tickets are for two hours each with extra skating time calculated at every extra half hour.
