“This Place is Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

The bumper cars on ice are an absolute blast. They let you go at it for twenty minutes, which is a long time. Call in advance to reserve though. The ice skating is fun and the skates are good quality. The employees at the ice arena are fantastic. Glad we went.

“Huge ice arena”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

A great place to go to cool off in summer!!
Great staff!
We skate there a lot, and play hockey.
Large bathrooms, and dressing rooms too!
Olympic size arena, with public skate, drop-in hockey (for anyone who plays), and stick-n-puck ( a practice hockey secession) They have hockey masks to use , and hockey skates.

Lots of ice skating space and the ice bumper cars are fun. There are coupons in the local coupon book to help families out.

“So much fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

There are coupons available for a small discount but be sure to present them while you are buying the tickets because once the process the transaction, that coupon is no good. considering, it was a reasonable fee to skate for one hour and then ride bumper cars for 20 min. I have a bad knee so I had a little bit of a predicament about how to get into the car as you need to sit low in the tube. But once in, the laughter didn't stop until we were told the ride was over. Fortunately, I had my husband and grandson to pull me out after the ride so not recommended for someone who cannot climb out of a tube on the ground. The ice is rough and your ears vibrate but that just adds to the fun. I would do it again if I had my grandson and husband with me again.
