Aotea Square Ice Rink

June 28 @ 10:00 am - August 11 @ 10:00 pm

Auckland’s coolest winter experience, the Aotea Square Ice Rink, returns with more fun than ever before

Opening Matariki weekend on Friday 28 June in Auckland’s Aotea Square, the pop up ice rink will not only offer the thrill of skating in the middle of New Zealand’s biggest city but, for the very first time, visitors will be able to try their hand at the Olympic sport of curling.

There will be a fantastic two-lane, 12-metre long curling rink, perfect for beginners and pros and great for friends, family and team building, pitting two teams of four against each other for 25 minutes of entertainment.

On top of this, there’ll be specially themed party nights like Student Wednesdays, Skate & Date Night Thursdays with romantic music and lighting, and Groovy Fridays featuring the coolest beats spun by a DJ from a booth on the ice. The rink will also feature a stunning lighting installation that will leave you feeling like you’re skating underneath the magical starlit winter’s night.

The Aotea Square Ice Rink has returned 11 times in the past 12 years and has hosted a quarter of a million skaters since 2012. It will kick off this year with an opening night Matariki celebration featuring a DJ spinning Kiwiana hits
