Best ice skating rinks in Hong Kong

Skate along while you admire the awe-inspiring backdrop of Lion Rock Mountain and shimmy (if you can) to tunes blasting from the high-quality audio system. This is one of the busiest ice rinks in Hong Kong as it's located inside the giant Festival Walk shopping mall in Kowloon Tong. The ice rink often plays host to skating competitions and offers various skating school programmes taught by professional coaches.

The Cityplaza Ice Palace is one of the smoothest, slickest ice rinks in town. Not only does it use an environmentally-friendly refrigerant to create its icy floors, but it also has state-of-the-art audio and lighting equipment to create a more impactful experience for everyone. Best of all, you can even get direct access to refreshments from the rink without having to remove your skates!

Mega Ice at MegaBox is an international-sized rink that often hosts international ice hockey leagues and world-class skating competitions. Offering skaters a scenic harbour view of Kowloon East, the ice rink is a multi-purpose venue perfect for performances, concerts, private functions and even birthday parties.

  • West Kowloon

This 17,200sq ft rink uses the first Octopus card pay-as-you-go service, effectively cutting pesky queues. The Rink does not operate on fixed time sessions (apart from the short resurface duration), which means that skaters can have the most flexible access any time of the day. For the less experienced, there are hand-held penguins, seals, bears and dolphins available for rent as a skating aid.

Opened in 2021, the Lohas Rink is Hong Kong's largest international-standard ice arena. It is also the first-ever venue of its kind in Hong Kong to incorporate a natural, non-toxic and non-flammable CO2 chiller plant system, which uses a low GWP (Global Warming Potential) refrigerant to help minimise the negative impact on climate change and prevent damage to the ozone layer. Additionally, the ice rink features numerous amenities such as electronic lockers, handrail rentals, a multi-function room, an ice sports retail shop, and even skate sharpening services to ensure you can glide around safely and smoothly.
