Its facilities and ice pad was one of several rinks which opened in the 1980s and '90s.

  • A great place for Ice Skating, and other events. Friendly staff, choice of food and drinks. Family orientated. Fun for all
  • Easy to walk to from the Milton Keynes Central train station however, you need to know where it is beforehand. Decent sized venue and it has a Papa John's (my personal favourite takeaway pizza) as well as a bar and other decent places for food and drink.
  • I love coming to planet ice for the hockey but they have quite literally the worst bar team I've ever seen. The notion of multi tasking is way beyond them, standing chatting whilst pouring a single pint, i have to ask to pay whilst they are pouring my pint every single time. Why the hell can't you start pouring my pint and then at least start putting it through the till? The wait at the bar is at least doubled by there being no management and it being pretty much a free for all. Aside from the bar, the staff are great, the facilities clean and it's a great evening out.... Provided you don't want a drink.
  • Reasonable price for public skating sessions. There are also lockers to store your belonging at a cost, but the size is large enough to store multiple small bags and coats.
  • Looks great now that it's been done up recommended it to anyone who fancys skating or to watch the hockey
