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

I took my son ice skating for the very first time and I have to say we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The boots were adequate, but I have to say the lever type securing straps were a bit tricky but we managed. Onto the ice, my son with a supporting penguin (£3 for 30 mins), and we were off...well once... More

Came here for a hockey game and the venue is fairly nice as you are really close to the action - even if there is netting rathher than plexi glass to look through. The staff were friendly as were the home fans but for the "premier ice rink on the Island" (aka the only rink on the Island) Plane tice... More

Thank you for your feedback. It’s great to read your positive comments about the atmosphere and the staff at the Isle of Wight rink. As tenants of a short term lease of the Arena, we are not currently in a position to invest heavily in the facilities, despite our desire to do so. We continue to maintain the facilities to... More

Came here as a adventure of never ice skated before in my life. Less to say I'm not brilliant but the staff were really helpful as my balance wasn't amazing they were happy enough to lend me a penguin at no extra cost! Due to it being midweek we were lucky enough to be the only ones in there so... More

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!
