“Hockey game”

Canlan Ice Sports Fort Wayne
Reviewed September 27, 2013

I came here to watch my grandsons hockey game. My husband dropped me off in front and when I got out of the car to go inside, I had to hold my breath to go inside because all the smokers were congregated in front of the entrance. The inside lobby is a good size, but a bit crowded with figure skater and hockey player gear. They could use a few more seats in the front lobby. The concession stand was open. A bit pricey, $2.00 for a medium sized mediocre coffee. Ice rink much colder than other rinks I've been to.

First off, to enter into the building one has to enter thru the sliding glass front doors. The problem with this, is that the entrance is flanked on each side by alcoves where many of the employees and non employees smoke. Yes eventually they put "no smoking within feet of entrance" but many smoke closer than that and those that don't are smoking on sidewalk of entrance or in that back alcove and the smoke just carries toward anyone entering the building and at times goes into the building! Management really needs to stop this! Have a designated area near the non main entrance for all smokers. The main entrance should be non smoking. The figure skating programs seem well run. The hockey programs are sporadically run well at best and very unorganized. The house hockey league evaluates the players and then puts together uneven teams. There are always teams at each level that lose every game while another team wins every game. Email communications have many times conveyed incorrect information. Only two of the rinks have bleachers for fans to sit on to watch the games. The other rink one has to stand for entire games. Many people comment about the bad ice. It also needs more parking! When they are at capacity, many are forced to park along the roads, at the hotel or even at the field house next door. All which could get your car towed away.

There is a great pro shop at this rink. It is very well run.
