The admission of guests to any facility operated by Planet Ice is strictly subject to this Guest Admissions Policy. By purchasing a ticket to attend any facility operated by Planet Ice, the purchaser agrees to be bound by this Guest Admissions Policy.
Planet Ice reserves the right to refuse access to or order the immediate removal without any entitlement to a refund of any person who fails to act in accordance with this Guest Admissions Policy.
Tickets are not refundable, and Guests are responsible for checking their tickets at the time of collection (or booking in the case of an e-ticket). Planet Ice shall not be under any obligation to rectify tickets bought in error. Guests may not resell or trade any tickets.
Tickets purchased online for sporting and leisure activities including music concerts on a specified date are exempt from the Consumer Contracts Regulations (2014). If an event on a specific date is cancelled, rather than rescheduled, then a face value refund will be provided however the booking fee will not be refunded as this covers all the behind-the-scenes work that has already taken place.
Guests shall produce on request a valid ticket in order to be admitted into a facility. Each guest is only permitted access to and for the activity specified on the ticket. If the capacity of the facility is at the maximum when a customer arrives then they may be asked to wait until such time as there is sufficient capacity.
Guests shall retain their tickets, ticket stubs or e-tickets at all times. Failure to do so may result in the guest being denied access into the facility. Re-entry to the facility is not permitted.
Ticket prices may change between the date of purchase and the date of the purchased activity. If the price paid for the ticket is greater than the price for equivalent tickets at the same activity, guests may not claim a refund for the difference.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to guarantee that a specific size of skates will be available to hire, and customers are recommended to contact the rink prior to their visit, especially when very small or very large skates are required. Additionally, it is not possible to guarantee that skating aids will be available on busy sessions.
Customers should note that the facility operates on a cashless basis and customers are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance using the facilities website.
Customers are expected to comply with all legal obligations, including any that relate to COVID.
Where a customer exhibits symptom of any disease they will immediately be asked to leave the facility and they will not be entitled to a refund.
Where a facility is an ice rink, customers may periodically be asked to leave the ice so that an ice cut can be undertaken in order to ensure that ice is maintained to the highest standard. This process will normally take no more than ten minutes.
One complimentary spectating ticket will be issued to a parent/carer in respect of under thirteen years olds (either attending as a group or singularly).
