Eco Ice Rink FAQs I'm a NT member do I need to buy a ticket? Yes, although your membership grants you free entry to the Park it doesn't cover ice skating. I'm not a member - do I need to pay Attingham entry? Yes, on arrival you will need to purchase a Park Only Ticket. Can I brink my own skates? Please don't bring your own skates, they may damage the eco ice. What happens if I arrive late to my Skating time slot? You will still be permitted entry onto the rink if you arrive late to your time slot but you will have less time on the rink. All guests will need to vacate the rink at the end of their allocated time slot, regardless of how much time they have spent on the rink. Do you have lockers or shoe racks? There will be open shoe racks available. Guests are responsible for their own shoes and belongings. Do you have stability aids? Yes, we have limited availability and they will be given out on a first-come first-serve basis. They can either be sat on or pushed. Can wheelchair users experience the rink’? - Yes, but no push chairs please.
