Are there any tips to get started with skating?
Skating can be tricky at first, but here are a few pointers to get you feeling confident on the rink! Don't look down or lean backwards when skating. Keep your knees slightly bent and your weight forward. To stop, use the heel brake (only available on Rollerblades) otherwise, bend your knees and turn the toes of each foot inwards. This will slow you down and bring you to a stop.
What not to Bring
- Push Bikes
- Chewing Gum
What to Bring
- Comfortable Clothing
- Your own skates or scooter (optional)
Will there be music playing whilst I am skating / scooting?
Yes, there will be! We play popular music during all session times on our sound system.
What should I wear?
To make your visit as enjoyable as possible, we advise that you wear comfortable clothing, such as trousers or tracksuit bottoms and you must bring socks with you (if skating).
Are wheelchairs allowed on the skating rink?
Yes, although every wheelchair user must be accompanied by his/her own assistant. Wheelchairs are simply pushed carefully around the outside of the skating rink. The assistant does not need to wear skates (although you are more than welcome to if you are comfortable enough to do so).
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept all major Eftpos and credit cards with a minimum transaction of $10. We do not currently accept AMEX and Diners Club. You can also make any payment by cash.
I haven’t booked a birthday party, but can I still bring a cake?
We are sorry but no; in order to bring your own cake you must book a birthday party as we do not allow General Admission to self-cater.
Do you allow self-catering?
We do not allow general admission self-catering or outside food to be bought into Wheelz World. If you wish to bring in your own food and/or birthday cakes, please book a Self-Catered Birthday Party. We have a fully stocked snackbar available for your convenience. Note: Personal items are acceptable (water bottles, etc).
Do you charge admission for parents bringing their children?
Not at all, parents are welcome to come in and watch their children at no charge. If you decide to skate/scooter then regular admission and hire fees apply.
Do you have to book?
No, you do not need to book for General Admission. We only require bookings for groups and birthday parties. You are welcome to come anytime during our open times and you can stay as long as you like!
Are you open every day?
Wheelz World is NOT open to the public every day. It operates at various times inside Stadium 34 and these are generally on weekends and school holidays.
