I visited Bradford ice rink in early January 2015, on a Saturday evening. On arrival the building looked incredibly shabby and like it could do with a lot of money invested into it. When we reached the reception area it was overcrowded with teenagers and chavs. Entry was extortionate. The reception staff were not informative at all so we had to guess where to hire the skates from.
I would not advise hiring the skates from here - full stop! The skates are incredibly worn and give you the most horrific pains in your feet, ankles and legs (adding to the unpleasant experience).
Teenagers and drunk teenagers are everywhere and incredibly inconsiderate and rude. It appears this is the congregation point for the drunken chavs not old enough to hit town yet!
The dj was good and played a good selection of music. The ice rink itself is a really good size and this place has the potential to be great if a lot of money is invested for a revamp and perhaps a more controlled environment as opposed to a chaotic one.
