School Excursions

Did you know that the Durban Ice Arena offers school excursions, where you can come and learn and have fun at the same time?

Launched in 2012, the Durban Ice Arena educational fun experience on how ice is formed, how we keep the ice surface from melting and the history of the Durban Ice Rink. It’s the most fun science lesson you’ll ever have outside of the classroom.
