The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Figure Skating


Once you have completed the An Alien Concept: Weather Machines Quest and built the Snow Park your adult, teen and preteen sims can figure skate on the 4 dark patches on the ice hockey rink.

TIP: if you have a swimming pool at one of your houses and place the weather machine you unlock in the quest and set it to snow your sims can ice skate on the frozen pool so you can have as many sims as you want figure skating!

The skating option is:

  • Figure Skating- 12 hours


After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the figure skating medals collectibles. Every time your sim figure skates their hobby skill level up percentage will increase, once you reach 100% you will level up, there are 6 levels. You need to reach level 6 to be able to unlock all of the figure skating collectibles, once unlocked you will be able to find them.

The table below shows the level up percentage:

This may change in future updates

 LEVEL Figure Skate
1-2 150%
2-3 133%
3-4 100%
4-5 50%
5-6 25%

For example you would need to figure skate 2 times to reach level 5 from level 4

NOTE: it says 150% but you will start from 0% at level 2

The next table shows you for each level what figure skating collectibles you unlock (so you can then find those ones too) and also the level up reward that a second and future sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

1 Amateur Final Moment of Dignity, Silver Stumble and The Golden Spiral are unlocked in the hobby collection
2 Rarely Upright Platinum Princess is now unlocked in the hobby collection 250XP
3 Semi-Skilled Encouragement Award and Coveted Topple are now unlocked in the hobby collection 500XP
4 Skilled Heavenly Peak and The G. Grandeur are now unlocked in the hobby collection S750
5 Advanced Blind Goose and Silver Teapot are now unlocked in the hobby collection 10,000 Town Value
6 Skater Prestige Rare Swan and Simtown Splendour are now unlocked in the hobby collection.

You can now complete the collection!


NOTE: only the first sim completing this hobby needs to get to level 6 to unlock all the collectibles, future sims will be able to find any collectible even if they are only on level 1 in this hobby

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?


The completed figure skating collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘figure skate again’ or ‘start a new collection’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

You will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 12 of the collectibles

The rewards for completing this collection are the ski lift key, figure skating outfits and 3LP:


  •  The second time unlocks the figure skating outfits, which can be found in the wardrobe for preteens, teens and adults under outfits once you have built the costume and swim store

  • From the third time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 3LP

  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 🙂

  3. 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!

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

  5. 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!

  6. 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.


    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!

  8. 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)

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

  10. 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.

  11. 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?

  12. 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.

  13. I won the outfit but I am not seeing it in the outfit section. I checked using a teen and an adult. Any suggestions?

  14. Hi! I have completed the figure skatingg quest and my next goal is 3lps, but i can’t find me figure skatingg costume anywhere. Must i unlock the costume shop before it show up?
