Hop over Rockhopper Rink for environmentally-friendly skating this winter! Edinburgh's only environmentally friendly rink is perfect for novice skaters (and experts alike!) and little chicks aged 3+. Children must be supervised and those under eight years old must be accompanied on the rink.
Skating boots are provided and each skating slot is 30 minutes long. Please note, your skating ticket does not include your entry into Edinburgh Zoo. This must be purchased separately or is free if you’re a Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) member. Skating can be purchased on a walk-up basis, but to save disappointment we advise booking this online in advance.
Book daytime skating using the calendar below!
Rockhopper Rink will be open on selective evenings throughout the festive period – animals will not be on show so zoo admission tickets are not required for evening skating. Those who have not booked for skating yet would like to come and wander our Winter Village at night are required to purchase a £2 spectator ticket.
- Adults/children for daytime skating – £9
