  • We only went to te ice ring. It is a great way to do some ice-skating when the lake are not frozen anymore. Lot of people the week end and possibility to eat just next to it. The place is open for ice...  more »

  • Indoor ice rink underneath an atrium in Montreal's underground city. Long lines due to popularity and indoor setting.  more »

  • You'll find within the Atrium an indoor skating ring that is available all year round. Around this indoor skating ring, you'll find a food court where folks can eat and watch people skate. In turn, you can opt to skate and watch people eat. People watching people. Exciting. The skating ring is small and can get pretty busy during the weekends, my experience over the weekend confirmed that with many people trying to skate and falling all over the place. This can be somewhat dangerous so smaller children as well as to adults as most people don't skate with a helmet. The staff have events on the weekend for small children as well as events during the night for dating if that's something you're interested in. They regularly clean up the ice, the ice quality was decent. My main issue is how expensive it is, the admission costs and skate rentals can make it a pricey activity for a family. Furthermore, paying for a locker is a stupid practice. Where did you expect me to leave my shoes and coat while I skate? On the floor?Should women skate with their purses on their shoulders? Opt for a deposit system so people can be responsible and return their keys but geez, how freaking greedy can you get?!? The skates I got were complete rubbish and probably haven't been sharpened in months, if ever. They were also incredibly stiff and made the experience skating tedious and painful. I couldn't wait to get out of the ring and take them off.. Perhaps that was their intent..... so they can get more suckers to come here and pay for the activity. Our entire adult group felt their skates were bad. In conclusion, sure being indoors is kind of neat, particularly when it is summer and you want to skate but check your options elsewhere. There are arenas and parks you can try out and they're more cost efficient, have larger skating rings and don't try to ask you for $3 to rent a locker you'll absolutely need to store your things if you want to partake to the activity.
  • Always beautiful and clean place. And it's surprising considering how many people come through here like, ALL THE TIME. Impressive. Nice selection of mini restaurants (Subway, Lafleurs, etc). Just missing a Tim Horton's of course! The skating rink makes an absolutely gorgeous centerpiece and the lighting is almost always ample.
  • Great experience... First time skating in my life and didn't fall... Those are bonus points... :)
  • There's a cool indoor skating rink but nothing too exciting. Lines get pretty crowded and the rink gets overcrowded too. Not a lot of space.
  • A great place to learn to ice skating. I've been improving my skills over the years just by taking their course 2 sessions each year (each session is 6 classes so 12 classes a year).
