CHB

Pining for a bit of winter and to escape the summer heat? Here’s two options to lace up the skates and go ice skating this summer.

Shinsegae Department Store 

Within the massive department store sits a 2,800-square-meter ice rink. The facility is regularly leveled to maintain optimal quality and remains open year-round. A variety of skate, glove and helmet rentals are available at the rink along with basic and advanced lessons for both figure and speed skating.

Refuel after a skate at a snack bar within the rink or recover with a trip to Spaland.

Ticket Price: A two-hour skate runs 9,000 won for elementary students and 12,000 won for students above middle school level. Skate rental is 3,000 won.

Hours: From 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and until 10 p.m. on weekends.

How to get there: Get off at Centum City Station (Metro line 2). It’s located on the 4th floor of  Shinsegae Department Store, accessible via the subway station.

Culture and Ice Sports Center of Bukgu

At 30-by-61-meters, the sports center in Bukgu is the city’s sole ice rink built to international standards for short track skating, able to accommodate as many as 400 skaters on the ice at the same time. The ice rink is located on the first floor of the three-story building, built in 2005.

The facility is so popular with residents and tourists that between 300 and 400 people on average visit each day on the weekends. The center is equipped with a medical service, lockers, shower facilities, a cafeteria and a snack bar.

Day passes and memberships are both available to the center, the backdrop for games and special events. It’s also home to artifacts exhibits and liberal arts lecture rooms.

Ticket Price: Three hours of ice time costs 4,000 won for adults and 3,000 won for middle/high school students. Skate rentals are 3,000 won.

Hours: From 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Closed on Mondays.

How to get there: Get off at Deokcheon Station on Metro line 2 and walk toward the center from exit 10 for 10 minutes.
