As a figure skater I'd always wanted to visit this rink. Its absolutely huge and the ice was pretty good for an outdoor rink. Only annoying thing was my friend who wasn't skating had to buy an admission ticket to watch, fortunately the ticket prices weren't pretty reasonable

Nice setting, in the shadow of a castle. Reasonable value for money - but a cash deposit must be left when hiring skates. The in-house ATM provides a terrible exchange rate. Completely ripped-off. Bring your own cash beforehand!

Also check the weather before, since once it began pouring with rain we didn't go back on the ice. When its so wet the ice becomes very slippery (which they did warn us). There is a cafe to rest and get drinks. They do provide a locker. There are no edges to hold onto so make sure you can skate adequately. Very big rink though, largest outdoor rink I have ever seen. The size will surprise you. Check out the adjacent castle while you're there.

Student discount is only available if you have a physical student card. They do not accept electronic evidence, such as UNiDAYs. This seemed pretty outrageous since the price difference was so considerable. (costs 50% more if you're unable to prove to their satisfaction that you're a student). There were very rude and unsympathetic about this.

If you are wondering what to do on a sunny winter day in Budapest, try this out! This is a top experience! The rink is huge, plenty of space to move about. Entry is 4000 ft per person plus a security deposit of 2000 ft for skate hire. Great fun!

If I ever spent a winter in Budapest I will make sure to go back.
In our visit we were in the Park -near the Millenium Monument- and we saw the area where all the skating happens in the winter and the building "Városligeti Műjégpálya". I ran out of battery in my cell...so I only came with one photo from there. But friends in Budapest showed us the winter decorations and what a fantastic time the citizens have in that ice ring. Lovely!

Beautiful surroundings and a lovely massive rink. Easy to hire skates after you have paid your deposit, plenty of locker space and places to just sit outside. You have to pay a fee to go in even if you don't want to skate. Me and my daughter had a great time.

Rink was a great size.
Hard for inexperienced as no barriers round the outside.
Great scenery and played music whilst there.
Slightly unorganised. You have to pay 2000 per skates to hire, which has to be in cash.. lockers you need a key card which no one told us about, a staff member then gave us one.

Highly recommend anyone do this if they're over the winter months. Great location and views especially on a nice Winters day!
Beginners may struggle however as there are no sides to hold on to but once you're on the ice and away people should be fine. Make sure you look up opening times however as we were caught off with them shutting between 1pm-5pm. Also, make sure you have at least 2000HUF for skate rental!

You can always stop for a break and get a nice warm drink for a reasonable price as well which added to the time spent there. Give it a go if you get the chance!

Staff very rude and arrogant. Long lines to get in the staff do nothing when people are pushing in. All they want is your money. They do not like tourists. They need more customer service training. Go to one of the smaller ice rinks you will get a better service.

Went to Heroes Square via the hop on/off bus - then went for a walk over to the rink. Great place for families and friends to gather and have a great time. I did not skate myself (63) but watched for a while. Beautiful setting.

I thought i would be safe by renting a seal for my daughter, when we hit the ice she refused the seal and wanted to learn immediately, I was ok with that until I noticed it's all open, No Sides 🙄. Still go have a hot drink and a snaps before you go out at the restaurant next to it. Good Fun experience, recommend!
