  • Great place for ice skating. Super friendly staff and a real sense of belonging. The food could be improved, though not really a con.
  • The rental skates have gone through hell and back. Aside from how cheap and painful the skates were, had a really good time.
  • I came here skating today and felt quite frustrated. The rink itself is decent but I feel like you guys probably never sharpen your size 12 skates for adult. I asked the staff to change my left skate to a new one 3 times yet still it's very dull, like it totally doesn't cling to the ice at all. I was skating in the Canterbury Ice Skating Rink in Sydney before coming here, and I must say at least they keep their skates sharpened pretty good. Guess next time I'll just have to pay more for the hockey skate hire...
  • Had geart time with family skating and having fun. Skate hire available, and people are great. Little ones can sit on plastic seals or use skate aids which are available for hire at reasonable rate. It is a really fun environment for the family.
  • A friend had her birthday in the function room recently. Unfortunately one of the guests broke their wrist ice skating but the assistance we received from the staff was fabulous. Thanks to Tom and Jack - you guys were great!
