Get Your Skates On!

I have tried ice skating with absolutely no success whatsoever! My children are all excellent skaters and can jump and spin and stay upright for the whole time on the ice. Me? Well not so much...
As a result I have often taken my children to see ice shows and there's none better, according to the critics than Blackpool Pleasure Beach's own 'Hot Ice' The current show 'Mesmerise' runs until Sept. 8th and with tickets between £5 and £25 I think this is amazing value. Here's some blurb:
This years' new production 'Mesmerise' is a spectacular fast-moving live performance which promises to keep you sitting on the edge of your seat.
Hot Ice is a dream that is brought to life by the stunning lighting that reflects the mood and magnificence of each scene. The young and dynamic skaters gracefully slide and glide into a world of creative paradise with intricate choreography performed to beautifully written music conceived and inspired by the greatest soundtracks to our lives.
The show is choreographed by Oula Jaaskelainen an Olympic athlete, who creates excitement by encouraging the performers to skate at high speeds with intricate footwork and spine-tingling jumps.
No shows on Sunday but Mon - Sat there are matinees which feature a 50 minute run time and evening shows with a 100 minute version and as I understand you can get discounts on the park's wristband if you book the show. Well that's all a bit complex so here's a link:
Blackpool has so many great shows throughout the year with Pleasure Beach, The Winter Gardens, Grand Theatre, and many other great venues staging something for every taste. However with my experience of ice skating I can only marvel at the grace and thrilling spectacle that makes the Hot Ice show a year in, year out winner.
Come see for yourself :)
