Good for ice skating

Great day out, great fun, you can spend hours here and no one bothers you, wrap up warm. Good music playing. Quite outdated but still a great day out.

New computers in bowling alley makes it far more modern always a good trip out with the family. Kids and adults alike will have a great time.

We visited the Ice Bowl yesterday to go bowling with my two nieces to celebrate a birthday. The customer service from the booking over the telephone to the point we arrived was absolutely first class, all thanks to Gareth. He made the booking so easy and was extremely welcoming when we arrived, helping us to set up and making sure... More

I've been going here regularly since I was a kid. Now my kids go. Bowling is always great, golf is super fun. Ice skating is good but I miss the live DJ. Mostly dance music played. Not a large variety in music sadly. Staff are friendly. Reasonable value for money. Always busy. Good day out for the family.

Only visited the bowling section and cannot see cause for any negative comments. We were Two mums a dad, two grandparents and five grandchildren. Fair to say we had great fun though some of our bowling left a bit to be desired. Staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely a great family activity as far as we were concerned.

Took my 6 and 7 year old to Indianaland, have been to lots of these places with the kids over the years and I will NEVER be back to this one again. Two words "the smell" the place stinks of urine. Only for the fact I would've had a screaming match on my hands we would've left right away !... More

The whole complex is run down and very unclean looking. The cafe could do with some decent tables and chairs. The clip and climb is great but it's unfortunate that it took away the seating in the ice rink......you can only view the ice skating by standing at edge of rink. Indiana land is very dirty looking, don't think I'd... More

its had been over 20 years since i had been to the ice-bowl,it was good then and i must say it still is,although maybe would need some renovation of some sorts . the kids all had a wonderful day and the adults did nothing but laugh at each other,a good place to spend a morning or afternoon.

The only ice skating venue in Northern Ireland so without competition little reason to improve and improvement is what this place needs on most levels. Undoubtedly a great attraction and provides a delightful experience for many but its patrons deserve better. The cafeteria has hygiene and health and safety issues even though it has a 5 star hygiene rating awarded... More
