“Extremely Outdated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

I have visited the Lexington Ice Center since I was about 8 years old playing hockey. I am now 27 and all they have done is paint the walls and added a second "back" ice rink. I dont think this place has had anything new since the early 1990's. The main rink is severely outdated. The ice is ok, I mean this is Kentucky, but it could be a whole lot better. I don't go to alot of public skatings but when I do it's pretty packed with kids. If you are wanting to avoid crowds and skate peacefully I would recommend going during the day.

The second "back rink" is for hockey only.

Management/Staff is generally rude and unhelpful. Employees are teenagers, for the most part, that do not get paid much at all so you can expect poor service.

This place has so much potiential but cheap owners keep this place down. If The Lexington Ice Center would update everything then I would give it a good review. Sadly it's just a dump until then.

“Not a tourist destination”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Not a bad place to spend a day, especially if it is hot. But the upkeep is terrible. No reason for a tourist to go here that is for sure.
