The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Figure Skating



This is the first of many posts about the hobbies your sims can do in the sims freeplay. This one is Figure Skating.

I’m going to tell you a little bit about how to do the hobby and what you can unlock if you find all the medals.

Who can figure skate?

Adults, Teens and Preteens

How can I figure skate?

You firstly have to build the snow park to take part in this hobby.

Where can I figure skate?

You can figure skate at the snow park (on the ice hockey rink, there are round darker patches in the ice- if you click on them it will give you the figure skating option)

NOTE: 4 sims can skate on the ice hockey rink

You can also figure skate on a swimming pool at one of your houses IF you have a weather machine that is set to snow, this will make the pool into ice.

What is the figure skating option?

  • Figure Skating- 12 hours

What are the figure skating skill levels?

There are 6 levels, these are:

  1. Amateur
  2. Rarely Upright
  3. Semi Skilled
  4. Skilled
  5. Advanced
  6. Skater Prestige

How do I collect medals?

To collect medals you need to skate, every time you complete a skate you will receive a medal. As you increase levels you will unlock new medals to collect.

What medals are there to collect?

The pictures below will show you all the medals you can collect:


Level 1 medals are:

  • Final Moment of Dignity
  • Silver Stumble
  • The Golden Spiral

Level 2 is:

  • Platinum Princess

Level 3 are:

  • Encouragement Award
  • Coveted Topple

Level 4 are:

  • Heavenly Peak
  • The G. Grandeur

Level 5 are:

  • Blind Goose
  • Silver Teapot

Level 6 are:

  • Rare Swan
  • Simtown Splendour

What do I win?

The first time you complete the collection you unlock the key to the ski lift at the snow park, this allows you to snowboard and use the toboggan. Read this post for more information on the snow park

The second time you complete the collection you unlock the figure skating outfits which can be found in the wardrobe once you have built the costume and swim store

The third time you complete the collection you receive 3 LPs.

How do I start the collection again?

Once you have finished the collection you can click skate again at the top of the medals list to start over.

  1. Why is that i cant get the Simtown Splendour medal? Does it have to take many tries? (It’s the last medal that i dot have)

  2. After I finish skating and get a medal, the xp percent comes up and then like a icon that looks like a flame comes up and more xp points. Anyone know what this icon means?
    Thanks 🙂

    • When you upgrade the island monuments they give your sims a chance to gain 70 bonus xps after doing actions, the flame picture shows the bonus was from the flames of wisdom monument, hope this helps 🙂

      • Ah I see, I’m doing the hobby at a neighbours and they do have the island which is why it comes up. Thanks for helping 🙂

  4. I have the same problem, I clicked on the ice and absolutely nothing pops up.

  5. I found out that if you use the weather machine and “make it snow” where there’s a swimming pool in a sims yard, you can start the skating hobby by clicking on the frozen pool! I was on level 5 already by the time I was ready to build the snow park 🙂

    Hope this helps someone!

  6. I wish snowboarding was a hobby! I thought it was going to be : )

  11. Hey all,
    It is just me, or since the last update there is only one option: “figure skating (12h)”?

  12. How many sims can be ice skating at one time at the snow park? I’ve heard there is another time limited event coming up with ice skating and I want to know how many sims to train for it. Especially since ice skating is 12 hours now! Crazy!

  13. Do you need to build the snow park before you can figure skate or can you choose to just use the weather machine to freeze the pool and then use that to complete the hobby? If I have to build it first I’ll be needing 700,000 and 18 sims. 😦 There was a notification that a new figure skating event will be released in 7 days. This is why I’m asking.

  14. What’s the point of ssnowboarding and sleigh riding?


    please read before asking

    What is the point of snowboarding and tobogganing? Are they hobbies?
    No they aren’t hobbies, they are just fun things for your sims to do

    Is ice hockey a hobby?
    No, ice hockey isn’t a hobby

    How many sims can figure skating at the snow park at one time?
    4 sims, click on the dark circles on the ice hockey rink

    Can you figure skate at home?
    Yes you can, once you complete the An Alien Concept: Weather Machine quest you can set the weather machine to snow and your sims can ice skate on a frozen pool at their house!
    You can do this even if you haven’t built the snow park yet (build the snow park before you get to the Seniors quest though!)

    Why haven’t I found a certain medal yet?
    Some take longer to get than others so just keep going, you will find them eventually!

  16. Just wondering if when I do buy the snow park will I need to buy the ice rink seperate or does it come already unlocked? (For the seniors quest)

  17. Can’t figure skate. Tapped the dark circles a few times no options

  18. I cant get the sim town splendour, i tried and tried, anyone with the same prob ??

  19. My sims have been figure skating for a long time to get the last two rare medals. This is depressing. 😦

  20. I can’t find the Simtown Splender either. I’ve been trying to find for it for probably 6 months now. It’s ridiculous. I’ve tried skating in all four different locations, just to see if it worked, and it still hasnt. I figure skate almost every day because I always have a sim whose life dream is that. And I STILL HAVEN’T GOTTEN IT.

  21. I cant figure skate. I press the circles and yes i do have a sim at the location. The only thing they can do is hockey or something. This might be because i do it at a neighbors town but other people seem to be able to do it just fine. 😕😕😕 any suggestions?

  22. Heeeeelllllppppp!!!! Ugh! Super frustrated!!!!! Ok, so i get that I must skate, skate, skate in order to get the medals. I have, LITERALLY, been skating for MONTH, to no avail! I’ve only got SIX MEDALS! And my sim is on level six out of six, I think skater prestige. So.…now what do I do??

    • For some reason this hobby seems to take a really long time these days, have you tried using more than one sim? If you use 4 sims you should hopefully be able to complete the collection quicker.
