The whole complex is run down and very unclean looking. The cafe could do with some decent tables and chairs. The clip and climb is great but it's unfortunate that it took away the seating in the ice rink......you can only view the ice skating by standing at edge of rink. Indiana land is very dirty looking, don't think I'd... More

its had been over 20 years since i had been to the ice-bowl,it was good then and i must say it still is,although maybe would need some renovation of some sorts . the kids all had a wonderful day and the adults did nothing but laugh at each other,a good place to spend a morning or afternoon.

The only ice skating venue in Northern Ireland so without competition little reason to improve and improvement is what this place needs on most levels. Undoubtedly a great attraction and provides a delightful experience for many but its patrons deserve better. The cafeteria has hygiene and health and safety issues even though it has a 5 star hygiene rating awarded... More

The ice bowl has been around for many years-it has many areas that could definately do with freshening up and refurbishment would be advantageous . That being said the centre has an ice rink,bowling,soft play,cafe etc all under one roof-so plenty to do. It does get extremely busy and activites such as soft play have very little space to sit...

My father was in the middle of the ice when a very rude member of staff approached him and took the penguin off him leaving my father to crawl back on the ice..when I... More

I was out with a group of men from my church tonight at the Ice Bowl. 36 of us got a game of bowling in and a great meal from the canteen afterwards in a private function room. The staff couldn't have been any more helpful and we were very well looked after. I've been going here for years for... More

First time on ice and I'm in my 30s! Was doing more laughing with the Mrs than skating which is why theres a star! Asked a member of staff on the ice if he had any advice. "Not now" he replied coldly, and skated off. That was the last I heard of him. And it'll be the last he'll hear... More

We attended the bowling alley on Saturday as part of children's party. It was not overly busy and there was plenty of lanes available, we had the choice of bowling, ice skating or Indiana Land. The ice skating and Indiana Land were extremely busy and there didn't seem to be much room left in either. I enjoyed a Starbucks while... More

I honestly don't think a thing has changed on the ice in years but it a wonderfully fun day out and still not terribly dear for a family fun day, my girls loved it. Combined with the other activities on site it is perfect for a wet day!
