A family weekend together, a great place to start off. Lots of fun had by all, even those who struggled last time we tried ice skating
Highly recommend for family

Nice but cold
Aug 2021 • Couples
We enjoyed a combo deal of bumper cars and ice skating. We also had a hot drink at the cafe, however we felt the venue could have had a warmer space in the cafe/lounge area to warm up off the ice.

Hi Dion759, Thank you for your review & your visit. Happy to hear you enjoyed the combo activity. It is a constant battle with the heat in the cafe. We have recently updated our heater system in the cafe to provide more warmth--but sometimes the mornings can be a bit colder or depending on how many people are in. We hope to see you again.

Very fun ice bumper cars
Apr 2021 • Couples
We did the ice bumper cars and it was the best thing I have ever done in Queenstown. Highly recommend for a date or a party. The lights on the cars really make the experience.

Ice Skating is Great Value for Families
Oct 2020 • Family
A fabulous option for families and only a few minutes walk from the centre of Queenstown.
All day passes ($15pp) meant we could skate, leave to explore other activities and return for more skating later in the day.

The Bumper Car rides only last for 15 minutes and, in our opinion, weren’t good value for money. We didn’t buy tickets for this activity.

Awesome family fun
Aug 2020 • Family
We had a great afternoon with our kids on the ice for the first time. The venue is easy to access with parking right outside or a nice walk through the gardens from town. We hired the skating aids (Olof the snowman!) which were super useful helping the kids to learn to skate and finished up with a hot chocolate. We all loved it!

A good bit of fun
Aug 2020
We booked the Ice Bumper Boats prior to our visit to Queenstown and enjoyed the fun 15 minutes of being silly. Well orgainised and great fun for all ages. The ice skating was also fun for those who wanted to give this a go. My wife had not stepped on the ice for many years but really enjoyed the experience as there were not too many people on the ice at the time.

Friendly staff, a great experience
Aug 2019
Despite the panic attack I had as I stepped on to the ice for the first time in over 15 years, I actually managed to stay on my skates and on the ice for nearly 2 hours.
Having a snowman (mine was called Olaf) to push around definitely helped!

Mr6 did this twice in our week and a bit holiday, and I suspect would have gone again too if we'd had more time.

A fun place to visit
Oct 2018
My husband and I had some time to kill so we took a walk through the gardens and ended up at the Ice Arena. We hired some ice skates and had a turn on the ice, it was a lot trickier than I thought it would be but it was an enjoyable activity and a bit of fun.

Great for everyone
Jul 2019 • Family
I bought discounted tickets through bookme.com, took my 13 yr old daughter and she skated non stop for 2 hours. I skated a bit too after asking for knee pads and we took our own wrist guards. It was fun but I got pretty cold even wearing most of my snow gear. Wonderfully there is an indoor heated and comfy lounge area looking onto the arena, with sofas and tables, a large fire place and a kids movie playing. Combined with friendly, helpful staff, some affordable and tasty food options, it was an pleasant and easy place to be. Recommend it for all family combinations.
