Do you need special skates for synthetic ice? No, we use regular ice skates.
Does it feel like skating on real ice? . The glide is slower than real ice by 15-20%, much like skating on a frozen pond. Novice skaters may not notice a difference. Experienced figure skaters may need to adjust, but will generally acclimate within minutes. Because the glide is a result of the friction created from the heat of the blade, you need push a little harder, to generate and maintain glide.
What is it made of? Is it safe? Yes it is safe. The rink materials are made of a high density RECYCLABLE polymer, and sprayed with a non-toxic material to facilitate the glide.
Is it cold? Will it melt? No, and no.
Can it be used indoors? Yes, the surface can be used indoors or outdoors, on rooftops, patios, auditoriums, stages etc. No power or refrigeration is required, and synthetic ice will never melt.
Can you set up the rink on grass? All rinks require a solid flat concrete surface to support construction. Uneven areas, like grass, require a sub-floor deck to provide this level surface. W can provide this service if required.
Is power or electricity required? Power is required for real ice rinks, and to power any lighting or rinkside equipment you need. However power is NOT required for operation of a synthetic popuprink.
