Family fun
Aug 2019 • Family
A great place to go on a hot day. There were not many people there and we had acres of room to skid around. Little one had a penguin as this was her first ever skate and this helped with balance and allowed her to be pushed around when tired. A great hour of fun!!

Good rink for hockey games.
Mar 2019 • Friends
Went here with group of friends for an Ice Hockey Finals and really enjoyed the experience. Parking is interesting as there are several sites surrounding the rink for parking - some formal car parks others rather temporary "mud patches". I rather doubt there is enough parking right next to the rink when it is full so that is worth bearing in mind. Staff seemed to be very friendly and helpful which made the experience all the more positive. Easy access to seats (stairways are perhaps rather steep alongside the rink). Great views throughout of the ice pad. Overall a very positive experience visiting here.

Great fun for the kids but.....
Dec 2014 • Family
First thing to say is that the kids had fun, but I felt a bit ripped off after looking at the receipt and realized that myself and my wife were not skating but had been charged £4 each to spectate! More of a concern was that there was also only one marshal on a crowded rink who was more concerned about adjusting his hat and only helping the girls up! A poor lady really hurt herself and to be fair to him he looked after her well but this meant the rink had no supervision for a long period. Could be much, much better run!!

Fun activity with kids
Dec 2013 • Family
For those who pay hourly in their local rinks, like we do in Istanbul, i want to note that you can stay the whole day for the price you pay. The rink was not bad. It was not crowded. Nice way to spend time with kids who whined all the way asking why we are taking that trip! :) btw you pay discounted prices if you become a member which is easy through their website, even if you are not a uk resident.

Rip off big time
Sep 2014
We are a family of 5 and it cost £38 entrance fee. Then it cost £5 per penguin per hour so that came to another £30. There is no cash machine in there and anything you buy they charge u £1. Was possibly the worst day out as family I've ever had. My kids hated it and so did. Glad to my kids never want to go back

Ice on summer

I went there with my friends in a really hot day. Was fun, and they have a discount if you go in groups. The place is good, but needs a update.

Enjoyable evening
Mar 2014 • Solo
Whilst in Cardiff I decided to attend the Cardiff devils v Coventry blaze Ice hockey match which was my first ice hockey match for a number of years (used to go to Bracknell / Basingstoke or Guildford when i lived in Reading but the nearest rink to my current home is 100 miles away ) and forgot how much fun ice hockey was, found all the staff and both sets of supporters friendly and the game itself was very close and exciting with coventry winning on the shootout. Their is a good selection of food and drink along with a bar and a souvenir shop avilable at the rink Admitidly its not the cheapest of events but still a lot cheaper then many other sporting events or evenings out and their is a regular bus to and from the city centre. Will def attend again if their is a game on when im next in Cardiff

Poor!
Aug 2013
After a recent visit to planet ice i was less than impressed. The staff were rude, unhelpful and had no manners. this bugs me to no end as you are a paying customer and manners do not cost a thing. The place in itself needs updating, in brief its a complete dive! The cafe/restaurant is very very poor and overpriced. As for the ice itself its a pretty standard rink, of a tidy size and on our visit was not to busy. For information purposes the ice rink has lockers which are secure and password locked, the cost was £1 for 2 hours or £2 for the day. Would i visit again - sadly i would as my daughter loved the ice skating experience and it is the closet ice rink too us, howevee i begrudge giving this company my money and if you can i would visit else where, but it would do if you have no closer alternative and you wernt expecting too much.

Family Ice Skate
Apr 2013 • Family
Great afternoon with the family, first time my children had been on the ice. Only gripe i've got is the state of the hired skates which were in a poor condition. There are two foot peguins you can hire which help support your child to skate.

Cardiff Devils Game

Went to see the Cardiff Devils play for very first time and a great time was had. A bus/taxi ride from the center, good family atmosphere and not bad value for money. If you have never been to see Ice Hockey before then I would recommend it.
