SKATING fans have been handed a king-size reminder that Leeds city centre's Ice Cube attraction opens for business on Saturday.
A giant penguin and polar bear pitched up in Millennium Square yesterday as the finishing touches were being applied
Its stay has been organised by Leeds City Council in association with the Yorkshire Evening Post and 96.3 Radio Aire.
Speaking at yesterday's promotional event, the council's executive member for leisure, Coun John Procter, said: "It's great to see the Ice Cube in Leeds once again.
"It's hugely popular and makes for a fantastic sight.
"We look forward to seeing regulars again as well as anyone who fancies having a go for the first time."
Younger visitors to the attraction can find their feet on a smaller nursery rink with the help of penguin-shaped skating aids.
