How Cold Is Auchenharvie Ice Rink?

If you haven’t been to a hockey game before, you need to know that ice rinks are cold places (not a surprise!). And the closer you are to the ice, the colder you will be.

Also, hockey rinks in the UK aren’t heated, so temperatures in the arena drop in line with outside temperatures. We would rank the temperature of the Auchenharvie Ice Rink as colder than average for the UK.

Auchenharvie Ice Rink Seating

Auchenharvie Ice Rink is a relatively small rink with around 100 seats. The rinkside seating means that you are close to the action but also close to the ice, so wrap up warm. The seating isn’t elevated much, so you may not have a clear view of the whole ice surface.
