  • Had to come off the ice after 10 minutes because it resembled a swimming pool and not a ice ring due to mild weather! Complained at the time. They we're not interested in offering a refund or even a p...  more »
  • The ice rink itself was great and my kids loved it, especially as it was snowing the day they went. However I have only given it a 3 star because the staff who were running it were very unfriendly and...  more »
  • Lovely atmosphere and nice little treat xmas eve, however the amount of money they charge really should ensure the ice remains as ice is was like skating in a paddling pool...a mild few days and thous...  more »

  • A expensive pond with some ice. Skates were in a sorry stats. Rink had an inch of water on it. Ok it was raining but it tends to do that in this part of the world so why not plan for it and have a drain point at the rinks low point. Only skated 30min as my 8 year old got soaked through when she fell and was freezing. And they wanted an extra £5 for hire of the plastic penguin kids hold when learning, which is basically safety equipment for kids where as everywhere else we’ve skated across Europe these are free. Rides were all closed. Won’t be back. Wish I’d seen these reviews before going. Only seeing them now as I’m searching for an indoor rink.
  • Very expensive. The staff were layed back and looked tied and upset on the ice rink. The rides were mainly closed. After spending this kind on money you expect a good standard.
  • Tried calling on Sunday to book tickets for Sunday evening - no answerafter several attempts and no tickets to purchase online but did. It state if it had sold out or not ! Google was showing as closed but the website said it was open until 9:30pm bit confusing and strange no one answered the phone ! Oh well 😔
  • Ice rink and Santa’s grotto are good but that’s about it. Fun fair over priced and no Christmas stalls, music or atmosphere. Disappointing!
  • Absolute rubbish! Paid £30 for 2 adults and 1 child just to skate for 1 hour on wet,mucky slush! An extra £5 for a snowman and £1 for them to store your handbag seurely ON A SHELF not worth the money one bit! Walking round every ride was dead and there was no christmassy atmosphere at all. After a rough few months u thought this wod of been perfect to make me feel festive but instead i feel like scrooge! Defo wont be returning!
