We arrived with high hopes, only to be let down again... and again. Yes, there was alot of posters, a frozen tent and the odd sing... More

My family and I visited last night and being our first time at the icehouse we had no clue. All the staff were kind and friendly with special mention to Jake who served us initially at the front counter then came passed later to make sure we had everything we needed and to check we were all having fun.

If you are into ice skating I suppose this place is for you. Lots of children and resultant noise. Found the overall experience OK but not all that cheap with entrance fees, skate and learner assist equipment

I took my wife and three girls to the so called 'Frozen' ice Skating. How deceiving can these people be. It clearly says in the ad that there will be games on the ice, what games? my girls were waiting for hours, skating and waiting, nothing, no games, not once. Only thing to do with Frozen was a quick Frozen... More

So much fun! I was given a dodgy pair of ice skates at the beginning and struggled to even walk on the mats let alone skating on the ice. Swapped them for another pair and everything was fine. Plenty of enjoyment and fun for all ages.

Came to watch the ice hockey.. It was great! The venue is very tidy and staff were very efficient! Food was a little over priced but pretty good for a cafe meal!! Drink prices I thought were also pretty fare!

You can skate in the arena next door or watch a professional game as we did. The Ice house is conveniently located in the... More
