Owner description: Lets just say we're the 'coolest' Sports & Entertainment Hub in Kodaikanal with an Ice Skating Rink, X-box (Play-Station), Free-Wifi and Coffee-Shop along-side!! The Qualified Trainers on-site ensure you don't need to know Ice-Skating before you hit the rink for fun, and the Synthetic Ice (like used in Disneyland) ensures you are Safe and secure at all times. The Attached Cafe has Sips and Munches to keep the hunger pangs down. And yes, we have both healthy options and 'lets-cheat-on-my-diet' options available. So come Discover New Energy! A new confidence, a new bond with your loved ones, and a new stress-free way of living.

“Enjoyable experience Ice-Skating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

The place is located in the market in the 3rd floor, so not easily visible to a tourist. It overlooks The Kodaikanal International School.

The instructors are friendly and patient and teach you to skate even if you are a complete beginner.

There is a cafe attached which serves continental and Indian food, so you can sit and sip coffee or a mocktail whilst the kids learn

Yes, being on the third floor only those people visit us who are really interested in learning this unique talent and having some good healthy appetizing sips n munches.. Our Instructors are specially trained and do understand the psychology of the skater. The cooking area is open for all to see . All beverages, including interesting Mock tails and even tea is made in Aqua Guard filtered water.

I am happy to read that you enjoyed your experience with Ice Skating Cafe. As you know we provide all the protective gears and no one enters the rink with out a helmet, elbow , knee guard and thumb gloves, so even if you feel scared its only at the beginning...The play station has Aerobic-Audio-Visual games to keep you on your feet and moving and snacks corner is very popular with the students:):)

It was nice having you at our Ice Skating Cafe. As you correctly said it is little hard for the first 15 minutes but once you learn it, with the proper technique from our skilled trainers, then its end less fun. So tell me, aren't you happy that now you know an international Sport !!!

Thanks for the review :):)
Yes, as you rightly said, its not a real ice .It's a synthetic ice which is used in Disneyland & other fun places in over 50 countries. Doesn't hurt if you fall down on it, as much as real ice does ( Special Tire Effect) ...Doesn't dirty & get wet, as real ice does ( 100% seamless panels) ... Doesn't change with weather conditions( self Lubricates & UV treated)..
Glad that you had a good experience.
