  • This is the training center for the U.S. Olympic skating team. (Other nations use it as well.) There is a huge track that rings the center and two full size hockey rinks. At certain times (you must check the schedule as they vary), it is open to the public both for skating and as a walking track. You can rent the place (or rooms) for parties. Food is available. On the second floor is a Hall of Fame mini-museum. They offer skating lessons and some leagues (hockey) play here.There is plenty of parking and the building is handicap accessible.
  • A great place to go ice skating. Children will also have a good time skating. The facility is very large and well-maintained. You can rent ice skates here.
  • It's a great place to go skating, but every girl I've ever brought here has broken my heart so I just don't have it in me to give it 5 stars. The women who go here are heart breakers, and the skates are a bit uncomfortable. Bring your own if you have them.
  • It's a great place to skate and go to run. But if your going please bundle up
  • Best place in town for an indoor public skate. The many levels of hockey leagues ensure all skill levels get the chance to play with players with a similar skill set. The building is never kept at a good temperature, so the ice is usually very soft, which is not good for hockey.
