Bobby Rentals

While visiting the Riverside Ice Arena don’t forget you can rent our skate aid Bobby the Seal. These are great for people of all ages to help steady themselves as they enjoy recreational skating. Not only are you able to push your child around the rink to help you skate, but if your child gets tired while skating, they have the ability to sit and be pushed.

Bobby Rental: $3 with an ID
