“I hosted my son’s birthday party at the rink. We were lucky to catch a sunny day. The staff was incredibly helpful, especially in lacing up and feeding 12 boys. Nothing could beat the smile on my son’s face as he raced around the rink…All in all, it was a great day, and the rink will always serve as a backdrop for some great memories of my son’s childhood.”
“I find the rink a great place to go on dates. During adult night skate, under the stars and especially when it’s snowing, there’s no other spot in town that scores more points with my girlfriend as I hold her hand and we glide around. Plus, it doesn’t exactly hurt my wallet either…”
“A group of my friends and I were looking for something different to do in town when we happened upon the ice rink. We spent the entire day skating, chasing, chatting, and eating! We’ll be back again soon”
