 ‘Fire On Ice’ To Light Up O’Brien Icehouse During School Holidays

 

The spectacular ‘Fire on Ice’ is set to light up O’Brien Icehouse during the school holidays when circus performing ice skater, Tim Matousek juggles sticks of fire while skating around the arena.

 

The ‘Fire on Ice’ spectacular is part of the exciting school holiday program at O’Brien Icehouse during the upcoming school holidays between Saturday 21st September and Sunday 6th October.

 

All-day public skating, including free lessons for beginners, together with the chance to skate with Yeti, the O’Brien Icehouse own Abominable Snowman, ensures there will be something for all the family.
