    We've visited the ice rink a few times and most visits have been fairly uneventful and enjoyable. Last week, however, there were three teenagers on the rink who were using the kids' skating aids as sl...  more »

  • The rink has benefited significantly since it became part of the Silver Blades family. The food and drink offering in the cafe being the most notable. As an ice-hockey venue, I still believe it's one of the best in the north for having the best view from many places in the rink. It's size does make it one of the coldest though, so wrap up warm!
  • Good place to come with family and friends. The hot chocolate in the cafe is nice. There are lockers available which cost £1 for 3 hours and be aware that is you pay by card in the cafe or for your skate session you will be charged £1 extra.
  • I come here every week during the public sessions and there are no problems, except for the fact that the surface of the rink itself is not leveled off properly and seems to be slightly higher around the center. Otherwise, everything else is satisfactory. The prices are relatively good and the staff are very friendly.
  • Been visiting Blackburn Ice Arena for at least 14 years now. The facilities are always kept clean and the stalls / condition of the ice is great. I now also have a loyalty card (Ice Card) which gets me discount on the public skate sessions. Overall I would say it is a fab rink and will continue to visit!
  • The helpful staff go above and beyond expectations, there professionalism is a credit to the ice skating community. The private lesson and group sessions have boosted my ability whilst still having fun.
