What happens if I have an accident on the ice?
Like all sports, the sport of Ice Skating carries a degree of risk. Skating is something that you freely engage in and undertake entirely at your own risk. The skater acknowledges that ice is a very slippery surface and, depending upon individual skill and experience level, Ice Skating may involve falls upon the ice, collisions with other skaters, objects, or structures and therefore is considered a hazardous activity, which the skater has elected to voluntarily participate, with full knowledge, acceptance, and assumption of any and all risks of serious personal injury, death or property damage. Management will not be responsible, however, incurred, for all injuries, accidents, and loss, however, incurred by the skater. All slips, trips and falls, and resulting injuries whilst skating, or being upon the ice will be the fault of the individual skater.
Our staff will assess the situation and if required, summon a first aider to the ice. We have an onsite first aid area but for more serious incidents an ambulance will be called.
ALL SKATERS ASSUME ALL RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH SKATING OR BEING UPON THE ICE SURFACE AND CONSENT TO ALL RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH ICE SKATING AND UNDERSTAND THAT THEY SKATE ENTIRELY AT THEIR OWN RISK, FOREVER RELINQUISHING THE EVENT ORGANISER OF ALL LIABILITY.
