Round off the summer holidays with an interactive skating session at Escape to Freight Island’s Good Life Skates

The collaboration with Cequin Circus will allow guests to become part of the fun, skating on the rink with the skilled performers and learning circus tricks through interactive, mystical circus workshops.

There are two skating sessions available to attend, 2pm – 4pm and 4pm – 6pm. Children are priced at £7.50 and adults £12.50 for a two-hour session. All prices include the hire of roller skates and safety equipment and with every child ticket bought, a FREE slice of pizza is also included!

When you’re not skating, there’ll be art workshops brought to you by the incredible team behind Art Battle Manchester, the city’s biggest live celebration of local art. Off the rink, you can make your mark by painting large murals with acrylic, channelling your inner artist and exploring your own creativity!
