Ice rink, toboggan slope plan for school holidays

Saturday, September 21, 2019

WARRNAMBOOL could play host to a winter wonderland these school holidays — but it’s hinged on an appropriate sized undercover space being found.

Winter Magic Ice Skating and Tobogganing, a New South Wales-based company, is planning to bring a temporary ice rink and toboggan slide to the city over the school term break, starting March 27 — if it can find the right venue.

The company’s owners expect it to be a major tourism drawcard and would help fill a gap in its Victorian schedule.

But so far the hunt for an appropriately sized space has been fruitless. An undercover space of about 600 square metres with a three-phase power connection of at least 160 amps is required and owner Lorraine Malone has put the call out for anyone with that type of space to get in contact.

“We have had a bit of a look around but there hasn’t been anything suitable so far,” Ms Malone said.

“We’ve had a quick chat with some real estate agents and the council. But we decided to put the call out to locals because often someone has a space they aren’t using that’s appropriate.”

Ms Malone said the idea was to give children and adults something to do in the school holidays and an experience many had never had before.

The business has previously set up in Mount Gambier and Ms Malone said many Warrnambool and district people made the trip across the border.

“I’d estimate that wherever we set up, about 50 per cent of the people who come are from outside the immediate area,” she said.

“We were in Mount Gambier about 10 years ago and we were so surprised to see how many people showed up …”
