Skating is not the easiest sport to learn but it is definitely something you should take a stab at if you get the chance. If it is your first skating experience then be prepared to stumble and lose your balance. The fun thing about skating is that you feel like you are constantly slipping.

The ice rink offers lessons for all ages; you can choose the level of intensity and a session that will fit in with your schedule. There's a bunch of friendly coaches who are very patient with beginners and they will teach you some fun tricks to do while on the ice rink. There are so many things one can do if one has to wait for the session. There is a whole line of restaurants and shops you could explore. One can also join the annual figure skating team show or one can visit the rink with a group of friends over the weekend for the disco.
