  • Lumpy ice, dull rental skates and ridiculous prices - that's what skating at Rockefeller Center is like. I've always romanticized what it would be like. I'm still glad I did it but it was underwhelmin...  more »

  • Recently my girlfriend and I took our first trip to NYC and we decided to do the "Perfect Start Breakfast and Morning Skate". The Food was about what I would expect as it is a set menu and about the level of a hotel buffet. Not bad or great, just kinda bland and average. The skating was a little disappointing for us since they were setting up the Christmas tree at the time and as a result there was scaffolding blocking or in the way of parts of our views and putting a damper on the overall experience. The worst part would have to be the skates. They only offer Figure Skates and they are in pretty awful shape. Everything everyone has said about plastic digging into the sides of there heels is true. I thankfully lucked out thanks to an outstanding employee working behind the skate rentals desk who generously offered to lend me his personal skates. Unfortunately my girl friend was not so lucky and we were forced to cut out skate short has the pain for the skates was starting to become to much. 2 out of 5 for the breakfast and skating 5 out of 5 for the service I received when I was there
  • It's a nice atmosphere, and a beautiful view. When the tree goes up, you get that scensayional feeling with all the lights. Many tourist and even some celebrities come visit. I met Carmelo and Lala Anthony there. I believe the rink could be pricey but you pay for what you want. Sometimes they even film movies there maybe you could get a cameo who knows ;)
  • A wonderful way to celebrate Valentine's Day! Have some drinks in the adjoining restaurant, fall down a lot and laugh, then head up to the top of the Rock. Gotta do it at least once.
  • For all those suckers out there, Rockefeller Center Skating Rink is the most magical one yet! And if you really don't think so; you're CHEAP. I've skated here for quite some time considering I've lived here 15 years. The ice is smooth if you come noon to late afternoon. Everyone skates at night, so it's your fault for waiting 8 hours in line. Bring your own skates for sanitary reasons. Tata I ❤️ NYC!!!
  • Worst experience ever. You would think the professionalism would be high especially in the city of New York, but that night when I bought two VIP tickets for my son and I, everything was unbelievably nothing even close to decent. The Zamboni machine was broken so the ice surface was completely like road dirt. Then regarding the rink attendants, what a bunch of show-off college kids they employ. All they do is yell around and skate arrogantly showing off their own skills, hazardously. My son is a competitive figure skater (11 years old), and he got yelled at several times just doing his own stuff safely. He knows what he is supposed to do and not to do in a public ice skating rink having been professionally trained for years. Would not recommend. Go somewhere else where you won't get ripped off.
