Rockhopper Rink has now finished. Visit our events page for more exciting events coming soon! 


Hop over to our synthetic Rockhopper Rink for family-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.

Rockhopper Rink will be open from Friday 1 December 2023 to Sunday 7 January 2024. Skating can be purchased on a walk-up basis, but to save disappointment we advise booking this online in advance.

Skating boots are provided and each skating slot is 30 minutes long.

Skating slots are at 10:30am, 11:15am, 12pm, 12:45pm, 1:30pm, 2:15pm and 3pm.

Please note, zoo admission tickets are required for daytime skating and are not included in your skating ticket. This must be purchased separately or is free if you’re a Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) member.
