Three sheets of ice and a mini rink too. The viewing is better in the two rinks that have bleachers, but the ice was good is all. The tournament was well run and the snack bar was decent. Great pro shop there too.

Attended an ice skating party here and it was decent. Plenty of space, arcade games galore and the staff was knowledgeable and friendly. They cater to large groups and everything is organized. Great menu too!

We were at the May Day competition. Excellent facility with 3 rinks, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Inexpensive public skating the day before competition.
