  • A great place to skate. I eat and drink at the bar upstairs which is well stocked. The rink is well maintained. I do find that the advanced skaters sometimes weave in close to other people and that's irritating. I would to see the rink supervised to help everyone enjoy their experiences better.
  • Huge amount of free parking. Went to a Bison ice hockey match and there was a great atmosphere and a brilliant view of the action. Be warned it is cold as a spectator!
  • Nice size rink. Not always that busy. Good prices. Space for serious practice and casual skating. Holds birthday parties here. Restaurant nearby. Skate hire.
  • Would have been 5* but there was no help on the ice from staff, not even when a young girl had a nasty tumble. Also, I found it wrong that figure skaters could practice amongst a rink filled with many first timer weaving in and out of us which was very intimidating. But otherwise, staff are at least very friendly, price is fair and we had a great time.
  • Good rink with long opening hours so can go in evenings. Choice of food and drink easily available too.
