Ice skating at the V&A Waterfront

Ice rink

Kerry-Anne and I popped into the Waterfront on a small coffee and photo outing. She had coffee, while I wandered around the the area taking photos in the beautifully soft evening light.

On arrival I spotted a large white tent positioned outside of the Mugg & Bean entrance to the shopping mall. On closer investigation I confirmed my suspicion that the tent is actually the mobile ice rink that's been set up for the holiday period. I took a look inside and although the ice surface isn't huge, it looks like plenty of fun.

Skating costs R30 per hour between 10am and 7pm if you have your own skates, or R50 if you'd like to hire the bright orange ones you see in the photo. Between 7pm and 10pm the rink hosts themed evenings aimed at teenagers (at a cost of R50 per hour if you have your own skates, or R70 per hour if you don't).

I don't think it's a coincidence that the three-hour themed evenings coincide so perfectly with the amount of time parents would need for dinner and a movie. :)
