“Ice Skating + Bar + Entertainment = not real skating”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

In short, it's a club on ice, if that's your thing, then you'll love this place.

I was very excited to hear Gurgaon had an ice skating rink! I skate in the U.S. and was really hoping this would be an acceptable substitute while I lived here. I was wrong. The rink is small, the ice is horrible (!), and it's basically a club atmosphere on ice. Really bizarre. 99.9% of the skaters can't skate well (or at all), and the place has music blasting, dim club-like lighting, and (some) "marshals" who are more interested in showing off than helping new skaters. There is serious risk of injury for new skaters here. I don't know why iSkate would increase risk of injury by also having dim lighting and ridiculously loud music. Also, they decided to have a BAR inside the rink! Are you kidding me? With new skaters!? Yes, that sounds like a tremendous idea, no? Ridiculous.

A suggestion: Have a more open skating times where the is the rink is well lit, and keep music volume down, so people can hear each other. How can a marshal help anyone when no one can hear them?

Note: they do not offer lessons, except very basic lessons for little children.

Hi,

Thank you for your post.

Well our bar is an added attraction to those who want to sit back and take a look at their friends or family skating. No one is allowed to skate after consuming alcohol.
We do wish to see you again at iSKATE !

“Nice Place for Skating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

Instructors don't give you enough time to tell you how to skate. But you can enjoy on your own, if you are skating with bunch of friends

“Fun Outing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

I am not complaining, but the rink is small, and with most non-skating people who go around slowly taking support of railings, the area you get for skating becomes more small. Plus, prices are high for one hour, go on weekdays.
