We come to WV a lot in the summer and fall. They offer a lot of free skate times and the kids love it. Rentals and ice access are pretty cheap and a good break on a hot day.

We can't say enough about the friendliness of the staff. We loved skating at this facility and we did several other activities on and near these grounds! It's a fabulous destination for all ages!

We've been to Waterville 3 years in a row for Weekend Hockey Tournaments. The tournaments are well run. The kids have good ice on which to play. Viewing areas are good.

The staff and other skaters were very friendly and patient with me as a first time skater. The rentals were $5 per pair and we had free admission with pass from our hotel. It was a nice activity! My husband loved the 80s soundtrack. :)

Can't think of a better way to beat the heat then lacing up a pair of skates and taking advantage of $5 public skate sessions! Wow! Right in the town square too! We had decent rentals and the kids thought it was 'cool' to skate...More

The rink and the arena are great for ice skating. It's located right in Waterville's Town Square, which is convenient. The problem is when you have to rent skates. First, the wait in line to rent the skates seemed to take forever, which is a...More

The rink used to have a nice schedule mix with games, leagues and public skate. Management has changed and the new schedule is hockey almost 100% of the time. No more public skate unless you happen to be there during one of their infrequent mid-week...More
