Icescape, which will be at The Tropicana, in Marine Parade, will open on October 25.

Skating sessions will be held on the hour, starting at 10am, for 45 minutes each session.

Inside the indoor skating rink, there will also be a chance to meet Santa and his elves at the magical Christmas grotto and even take pictures with them.

This year there will be two new rides - the carousel which holds up to 24 people per ride and Pippen's rotating coaster.
