Ice City Skating Rink open in Phnom Penh


Ice City Skating Rink is the only white skating floor similar to “ice” skating sport opened in Cambodia, and this sporting recreation is available at Phnom Penh’s Savanna Mall, while the city so far contains only three wield-skating rinks.

“It is not the real ice floor, but the white plastic similar to ice, because we can’t afford having ice floor, but the skates are definitely the one used for ice ground,” Borith Khy, 28, owner of the Ice City Skating Rink said. Adding, “In hot country like Cambodia, ice floor can’t be afforded, because there will be vast expense on electricity consumption to keep the floor cold, otherwise it will evaporate.”
He add, but white skating floor is the latest technologies that he bought from US, and country like Singapore, Vietnam, US, Dubai, Mexico, Paris have replaced real ice floor to this white plastic floor as it is easier to use, and less expensive.

This kind of skating playing is beneficial for two activities, i.e. singer-skating, and hockey playing, that he will provide in this future, according to him.

The field opens Monday to Sunday from 9 A.M. to 9 P.M., USD 5/ hour for adult, and USD 4 for children; for membership, adult- USD 3, and USD 2.5 for children. The floor can load up to 80 skaters at a time.

Borith opened the business more than a month ago, with the capital investment of around USD 80, 000, and received an acceptable amount of skaters. Around 50 skaters, on average play the sport on daily basis both Cambodians and foreigners, and the number soared up to around 70 players at weekend, he says.

“Most players are Cambodian teenagers and kids, while Korean youngsters and Chinese are the major foreign visitors, Most of them come in group, and play skating dance,” he said.

He reveals reasons to bring this latest sport to Cambodia, saying that, “I notice more Cambodian people like doing sporting, they also like new sporting, and among those sports, skiing is one of the modern and popular for them, so I want to introduce them to this new sporting.”

I believe this skating business will be prosperous in the future, since it is the first one in Cambodia, said the owner as optimistic on this entertainment establishment. “I will train Cambodian people about this latest skating, he believed.

Besides providing skating recreation, Ice City Skating Rink also provide skating training, games, monthly skiing contest, plus souvenirs to attract audiences, and will rent the professional skiing coach to train the first-time skaters soon. He plans to expand branch to other place inside Cambodia, and open the ice hockey field with real ice field if this one prospers.

“I used this one as training ground to the people and as they are more advanced and get used to it, I will consider the possibility to open branches, and the first hockey ground.”

Finally he urges having more guests to visit this new sporting to enhance health so as to keep update with latest technologies.
Sreypheak, 21, first time player in this ice field said she has only experienced wield skating since 10 years-old, and found that ice skating is faster, easier, and more exciting than wield-skates.

“Ice skating helps me keep fit, lost weight, and get slimmer,” Sreypheak said.
