Buffel nights

An hour of driving around the world's most beautiful outdoor rink

Fans' action: Buy your ticket now for the Feb. 4 Buffel night and get a free ticket to the Daikin Marathon Cup on Feb. 17 worth €10.

If you order your buffalo ticket online, the free marathon ticket will be mailed to you a week before the marathon starts. If you buy your buffalo ticket at cash register, you will receive a physical ticket for the 17th immediately. 

We will be buffeting again on Feb. 4 and March 3

During Buffel nights we start with a short warm-up after which we skate continuously for 1 hour in 3 groups of different speeds.

To make the Buffel nights accessible to a larger group, the fourth speed group  will skate slightly slower for 45 minutes.
