  • We had a good couple of hours fun skating here today. Skates and ice both seemed good to us. The building is old and run down but it didn't spoil our time here.  more »
  • First of all i have to confess to have been there 5-6 times but this is purely because myself and two children have no other option as this is the ONLY ice rink within 50-60 miles. In any given 2 hr s...  more »

  • At the end of the day if you go ice skating it's the condition of the ice which matters most of all !!! I must admit it has improved over the last year however it could be better.Prices are fair,shop is good staff are great.
  • Went to the ice rink last night with my granddaughter and my wife and Michelle,Kaitlyns mother. Kaitlyn was practicing her routine for her next level badge. I,on the other hand haven't skated for thirty years. I hired skates from the rink. They are blue and the blades were a little rusty. Nothing wrong with that but I think it didn't help me as I skittered around the arena ha ha. Good fun though. There is also a cafe and a bowling alley upstairs. Good value for money.
  • Nice ice rink. Reasonable prices and boot hire. Food available on site. Worth a visit if you like skating
  • Skating is great fun and excercise for all the family. Venue could do with updating but price is pretty good with a family ticket costing around £27 for 2 hours skating and skate hire.
  • Great place for family etc. I learned to skate their and so did my kids
