“Great place for small kids to practice skating”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

My small children enjoyed going back and forth on the ice with little to no other people. They don't know how to skate so they had 2 hours to themselves on the ice.

“try the ice bumper cars.”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

They were fun and I'd never done bumper cars on ice. A total hoot! They have ice skating too, but I didn't do it.

“Great skating outing including young children.”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

We had some experienced skaters and four children who had never been on skates. Rentals of skates and helmets were very easy. They even had chair-like devices for the starters to hold onto as they learned how to skate. Very good experience.

Thanks for visiting with your family - we pride ourselves on being family friendly. In addition to pushers (child and adult size) for novices, we also have seat sleds for babies and toddlers - so parents can push little ones around the rink - truly an activity for the whole family.

“FUN”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Best place to skate, love rock on ice with the kids. Easy to rent skates, easy to find. The staff are friendly and helpful. We have not tried the bumper cars on ice, but hope to in the future. Fun time for all. They have pushers/walker things for people who are just learning to skate and need something to hold on to to feel safe

One of the nicest ice skating rinks we have been to. Nice and new. It is never crowded and it is not expensive.
