We went here for a family fun day out (found a good deal on Groupon). There are 2 skating arenas that are decent sized. They also have training frames for beginners. The only negatives are the skate rentals and parking. The skates are in pretty bad shape and could use with some updating. We were all glad to get them... More

We went on a Saturday afternoon with the kids. They had a blast... We had a Groupon so it wasn't very much. I think it would be a little too expensive without it. We had a lot of fun though and bought another Groupon so we will be back.

Myself and three kids attended an afternoon public skate on MLK day. I was surprised to see a rink that had tons of seating for us to put on skates, and the lobby reminded me of a ski lodge. It was nice. They had the public going on in both rinks, one played pop music, the other a variety, including... More

The facility is geared very well for both figure skate lessons (only seen as casual observer) and youth hockey. We have attended several hockey matches for our grandson and facility caters nicely to that group. The rink is visible from an inside area that is much warmer than viewing in the ice arena itself. Depending on the game layout, sometimes... More

This rink is filthy and so crowded. Also for as many people and skaters that go through this rink they do not have a person hired for sharpening. They are understaffed. The inly person that can sharpen us the zambony guy that is over worked already. I waited for over an hour it get a pair sharpened and they were... More

My daughters have taken lessons here and have gone a few times with friends. They enjoy skating here. They give passes to the people who take lessons to come and practice during open skate, which means in can get crowded. They have a part sectioned off for people who want to practice moves, other than just skating around the rink.

Went here on a date with my husband. We wanted to try something new, and this rink looked really nice online. I appreciated the woodsy feel of the decor and atmosphere, but that was about it. Parking lot is really small, and we ended up parking really far away. The line once we got in wrapped around the front lobby.... More

The ice was bad, it wasn't smooth due to what I assume were air bubbles. The rental skates are only sharpened once a year and this was the end of the year so the blades were dull and I fell for the first time. We were there less than five minutes before we went to the counter to trade in... More

Nice rink. Woodsy lodge decor is very neat. Not too big but nice and kept up well. Small parking lot, so if busy you may have to walk a bit. We were there for a competition and the locker rooms were nice, as well as a nice larger area upstairs to hand out metals.
