Cool Event in Scheveningen

Comments0 comments

This winter Scheveningen is the place to be for the ultimate winter sport experience once more. From 13 November 2016 to 15 January 2017 The Hague’s beach resort will be transformed into a true winter wonderland called ‘Cool Event’.

You will find the beautiful 600 square metre covered ice skating rink right in front of the famous Kurhaus Hotel. Moreover, the 30-metre long ice slide 'Palace Fun Slide Boulevard' will open on the boulevard, right across from the Pier, on Saturday, 3 December. It is a 2-minute walk from the ice skating rink to the Palace Promenade shopping centre.

A warm drink
Take a seat at one of the outdoor cafes (with heating) around the square and enjoy a delicious meal or glass of mulled wine or mug of hot chocolate. Special offers are available throughout the period.

Children’s party
Why not organise your children's party at Cool Event? After a couple of hours of winter fun on the ice skating rink, children can enjoy preparing their own meal in one of the nearby restaurants. They can flip pancakes at Toff or bake a pizza with their favourite toppings at La Galleria Boulevard. The costs are EUR 16.50 per child, including ice skating, skate rentals, dinner, and syrup drink. Alternatively, upgrade the party to include a round of Glowgolf, bringing the total cost to EUR 24 per child.

School skating
Cool Event has a special offer for schoolchildren. On school days from 9.00 to 15.00 hrs. school classes can skate for only EUR 3 per child including skate rental and hot chocolate.
