Planet Ice is terrific value. Our kids loved it. Turn up, pay, pop on the skates and have fun on the ice. We went in the middle of the school summer holidays and it still wasn't crowded. Tip: remeber that this is an ICE rink and that it's cold inside...wrap up warm, even on a hot day.

Great value for money, you can just turn up and skate for as long as you want. The hired skates were really good quality and great for beginners. We went to escape the rain, and had a fabulous time.

The Learn to Skate courses represent excellent value for money and are suitable for adults and children alike. Such fun I can't begin to describe it - if you're fool hardy you've got to... More

Some days i can spend up to 4 or 5 hours of skating in there, there is just so much to do even though it is just a slab of ice but I love it!

This is a life saver for our kids! Please do not let be closed down. Yes it needs better management and a refurb, but it is worth it! The staff work hard and deserve to keep their jobs. Thank you.

Thank you for taking the time to review us on Trip advisor. It is with regret that Planet Ice cannot commit to keeping the rink at Ryde operating past the end of March. We have maintained and operated the rink for many years despite difficult circumstances. We are extremely proud of the staff and Management team at the rink that... More

Held my daughter's birthday party here, from arrival the staff were excellent and always helpful. My daughter and her friends loved their skating lesson and learned a few tricks in the process. Food provided was pretty good and it was nice to have a separate party room for them to eat in. All in all I'm pleased with the decision... More
