A large car park is located outside Planet Ice. This is available for parking at the venue and is also right next to the train station. 

Ice hockey might not be a game you’d think much about, but it is an eventful and fast-paced sport with plenty of dramatic moments. Adding Manchester Storm to your sporting radar will do you no harm whatsoever.
