We went here on a wet day as were not sure what else to do. We love skating back home but this wasn't as good. The whole place was sooo cold and we couldn't even get warm when skating like we usually do. We only stayed an hour

As a seasoned ice skater who sadly has had all the local rinks taken away, I was looking forward to having one close by whilst on holiday and eagerly packed my skates. I would have got past the poor state of the interior, if the ice had been good. It was beyond terrible! We went during the summer holidays, to... More

This is a tired looking ice rink. Quite expensive for a family to enter and shabby. As I was only a spectator I was not charged to enter, but my family paid a lot, including hiring novelty penquins at £6 each per hour, which helps children stay upright. I availed myself of the café facilities inside the rink, which were... More

The kids love it here and ask to go all of the time but it is Sooooo dirty, awful area for spectators and speed skating people dive between other skaters and don't get stopped by staff! Disappointing for me but have to go back to keep the kids happy as no where else to go ice skating in the area.

Nice rink. It was practically empty. We found the rink by chance because our hotel room wasn't ready and just happened to have our skates in the car still !!!! Ice, lockers, toilets, refreshments - you don't need much more from an ice rink really!

This place is horrid. I went with my family and the ice skates were old and worn they cut in to your ankles! When my some wanted to use the toilet we discovered urine seaping out of the floor! Do they have no idea of health and safely what so ever?!

Visit there! Its easy to say why! Go there and you will have a great day out! Lots of food is available there so why not eat there as well. Its normally quite busy during the holiday but so quiet after school or work!

As a long time ice hockey fan I recently took a trip across the water from my home in Portsmouth to visit Planet Ice and watch the local Wightlink Raiders in their final game of the season. They call this rink The Cube because of it's small size, but this makes the hockey extremely fast paced. I have to give... More

Canadian friends who were ice hockey mad brought us to our first ice hockey match with local team Raiders who were awesome and won 10:4 - lots of goals, one fight, & fun had by all esp by 8 kids- a really family atmosphere. Skated before but ticket includes free skating after match in evening (too late for small kids).facilities... More

One of the best places i've been to in the Isle Of Wight :D I went with 17 friends by hovercraft. We paid £10 for ice skating, and two hovercraft trips to Ryde and back to Portsmouth. I would definitely go again!
