“Some thing different to do in Oxford”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Went to Oxford Ice rink with my sons and a friend and her son, who hadn't been skating before.
We all had a dodgy first circle holding on to the side of the rink, then gradually one by one we built up our confidence and let go . The boys enjoyed the music , and as they became more confident it helped them with their movements.
There were stewards there to help people who had fallen so no one was on the ice for long, younger children had plastic penguins to push , a bit like a plastic ice zimmer frame.
The cost to get in for two adults and three children was £25.80 which I thought was good value for money and cheaper than going for a swim locally. We took refreshments with us , but there was a cafe. Lockers were 20 pence and easy to use. The session was 2 hours long but we were worn out after an hour and half

“I'm going there regularly”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

It's a great way to exercise, the admission price is reasonable and it includes the skates (the parking is extremely expensive though). During weekdays it is not very crowded so I'd definitelly recommend it.

“Had a lovely time”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Was really good, not very expensive. It was so nice because it wasn't to busy, we went on a sunday and I thought it was going to be as it's near Christmas and a weekend. Will be coming back again.

“Great fun for everyone!”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Took my niece and nephew here and they had a great time, the penguins for the little children are good but as my nephew is tall he could not get one which was a shame as he needed the help. Staff are on hand on the ring if you fall over and its really good fun! Needs a lick of paint but all in all ok. NOTE take extra socks for the children as the boots are rather sturdy and they got bad blisters. Also useful to have extra gloves as they get quite wet! :)

“Average ice rink!!”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

I suppose you don't get many ice rinks around so I dont have much to compare this to but it is good. Its always busy!
