great ice rink

Great to have an ice rink you can turn up to at any time of the day (no session times) and stay as long as you like. I guess that's why it's expensive! Appreciated the free... read more

For someone who had never really ventured onto an ice rink before the open ice skating sessions they have were a great. Something definitely different for me to experience and although I had a few falls its amazing how much you improve by even being on the ice for an hour.

Great place to take the kids for a Sunday afternoon. The kids had a ball and will definitely come back again. Plenty of entertainment for all and we were even able to watch an ice hockey match.

Met with friends in the city and we were going to go on the temporary rink in Fed Square. But decided to try here instead. Wow! So glad we did. They had both rinks open and although it was busy (school holidays ) you could skate easily. Prices were great seeing you could leave and come back in (which is... More

The Icehouse offers a section especially for children between 9-10am during term breaks. They offer free skating frames for new skaters to use. This is especially helpful as the children has a safe area area to try out their skates without feeling threatened by more competent skaters. The seal frames and the metal frames must be hired at an hourly... More

I brought my team to ice skating as it seemed like a pretty good idea at that time. There were 10 of us, a few knew how to ice skate while others had never tried it before. Nonetheless, it was a fun and great teambonding experience. The ones who knew what they were doing helped out those who didnt. We... More

My review will probably be a little different from the others, since I do figure skating and come here at least three times a week. I will separate my review into sections. I will try and provide a few tips at the end of my review. :) The rink is very modern, with great ice quality and a friendly skating... More
