  • Ice is always well maintained. I would like to see more stockhandling opportunities. But overall, a solid place to skate
  • Great skating experience for the entire family. The large rink allows the speed demons to fly by without worrying about hitting someone!
  • Open ice skating is pretty nice, the staff are friendly and helpful especially to beginners. Hockey leagues are pretty cool too.
  • My wife and I went on an afternoon date to the Pettit National Ice Center and had a good time. Neither of us had been skating in a while, so we braced ourselves for a rough outing - but in the end, we really enjoyed ourselves. We liked the layout of ice skating the speed skating circuit rather than just in a rink. When we needed breaks, there was plenty of seating to adjust our skates and sit and watch others. Also, there were synchronized skating practices and children's hockey games playing, which were also entertaining to witness as the Zamboni cleared off the ice for 20-30min. Easy check-in and check-out with skate rentals - be sure to bring quarters if you want to store a purse or other items in a locker near the rink!
  • Way cool place to skate. I go to the open skate. You get to go around in a bug oval. There is plenty of space to catch up speed. It is fun because when you get tried you can usually see a hokey game happen in the middle. I have not tried the rental skates but they look nice.
