Housing Shanghai’s biggest and arguably best skating rink, the Mercedes-Benz Arena’s All Star Skating Rink has a whopping 1,200 square metres of top-quality ice. This bigger space and flashier atmosphere can make for a very fun and seasonal outing, however, peak weekend hours can turn the rink into People’s Square station on ice. Weekday evenings are generally a good time to go. For the quality of the venue, it is still reasonably priced, starting at 50RMB for 90 minutes before 6pm on weekdays (60RMB after 6pm) or 80RMB from Friday evening through the weekend. Several different coaching levels and packages are offered; for entry-level skaters, a 30-minute private lesson will set you back 300RMB.
