Took my partner here for the first time, greeted coldly by very unenthusiastic staff. Researched prices for time slots on the website to be told on arrival that they were actually higher than stated anywhere on the website of at the venue. Tried to pay via card of which we had to wait 10 minutes as a member of the staff was using the phone so we were told to 'step aside' and wait till the staff had finished. I then asked for my card back whilst I waited of which I then received a sarcastic remark of 'I'm not gonna steal it'. Once inside the venue trying to teach my partner the basics of skating whilst trying to look out for other people who were close to running into us as they were not looking. There are rules and guidelines clearly stated inside however many of the people to adhere to them and insist on conducting themselves in a dangerous manner to others around them. In all I spent no longer than 20 minutes inside the rink as I personally felt my safety was at risk and did not enjoy this experience in the slightest and will not be returning. Money wasted. I would of asked for my money back however did not feel I could approach any of the staff at this establishment without receiving negative and sarcastic comments.

My husband and I took 4 very experienced young skaters. Laughingly' we couldn't seem to keep out of trouble! Firstly the web site said 7 till 10. When we got there it was 6 till 9. But a pound off so that was OK. However once in there we got in trouble for chewing gum, sitting in the wrong place, taking a photograph, skating too fast, skating too slow, holding hand, standing in the middle - the list goes on! The staff were so grumpy it became a bit of a laugh really. The girls behind the cafe counter didn't have a smile or a please\thank u in them! All in all we felt 'watched'. Also one of our skaters stopped going on the floor because she was pushed very harshly and felt it was dangerous.

Many people were whizzing past and one knocked me over and nearly lands on me, I hit the floor and broke both my wrists. The staff was good and helpful but that's all. They also play dodgeball, bulldog and speed skating which is very dangerous and a fair few people got hurt.

We had a great time here today but the certain staff need some training in how to be pleasant. I was served in the coffee bar by the most miserable male individual!!! No please or thank you, just a grunt! Great for family's, loved the music and enjoyed our morning.

Have been here a few times it's always been fairly busy when we have visited. If like me your no expert and have a daughter that is just learning it's probably best to go when they have kids sessions only. There were quite a few young adults here last night just whizzing round and my friend was nearly knocked to the floor they seem to be oblivious to those around who can't skate well. There is a bar and place to eat which is ok never eaten there but it's always busy. Great place for a few hours entertainment will be back no doubt shame there are not more around as it's a drive for us to get there from Preston

Had there been an option of a ‘zero’ score I would have chosen that!! Our experience of this dirty, run down, smelly place can only be compared to something from a scene off either The League or Gentlemen or Phoenix Nights! I was told we had a ‘party host’ what an absolute joke, we were left to sort party bags, seat the children, hand out food, replenish drinks and, to light the birthday candles!! I had to ask for a light from a member of staff who was on a smoking break for their lighter!!! We cut the cake ourselves and our neighbouring party asked to use the knife after us omg never have I experienced such sheer lack of professionalism and customer service in all my life! The ‘party host’ was far too busy whizzing round the rink with colleagues to be interested in making my little girls days special!! The sandwiches were prepared the night before (confirmed by the manager) there wasn’t any filling in some and at £10.95 per child for a skate, two sandwiches, crisp, Freddo and small
Sample pot of ice cream was a complete rip off! I reckon a skate and the food was worth no more than £7 (bearing in mind ‘I’ was the party host!!!). In fairness to the manager she did discount some of the balance we had to pay and there had been a fire which apparently their staff had been dealing with (mmm I think not given the fire officers were in attendance and roller rink staff were still whizzing round the rink
at speeds completely inappropriate when small children were around)! I am all for supporting local businesses but for gods sake, the building and staff need a complete shakeup!! Never will I set foot in this terrible establishment again!!!

I had heard of this place from other friends and in my mind pictured a venue that was modern and airy with the appropriate amenities.

Instead, I found myself in a dis-used sewing mill that was all boarded up from the outside and a car park without disabled car parking spaces.

The inside was dimly lit and looked dated and tired. The party room we were provided with had no door or curtain (as the other party room did) to provide any security or privacy and the bar serving both rooms wasn't manned for a large part of the time we were there, until a request was made by a member of the other party for a member of staff.

Rental equipment was old and smell to the point where some of it wasn't worn.

In all, I feel this venue is fine if you wish to just skate and have refreshments (only those brought on the premises), but I would not recommend it for birthday parties.

I absolutely love this place, used to go when we were at school in the 80's and fantastic to see it back to how it was.
The staff are great and always willing to help the smaller kids gain their confidence on the rink. They are excellent at maintaining safety when someone falls over
Wrist & elbow supports available too which we made our son wear.

Love the fact they do parties too so need to look into this more.

Definitely recommend a visit and be surprised if you don't go back for more :)
