“Run Down”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

The ice rink is very run down and not modified drastically since the 60's. If you enjoy ice skating then it is the only local option and kids do get to run off a lot of energy

“Very Good. Just ignore the decor.”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

Very old, very worn BUT it's still good. Don't worry if you've never been, it's a massive ice rink and everything just works. We're going back very soon!

“A good day out for skaters”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

If your not too fussed about the dated decor that has not changed since I can remember over 30 years ago & just love skating or in my case still trying this is a good value for money experience. Going around a rink is not really my cup of tea I can see the frill of it all & if you split your day & also go to the National Film Museum which is literally next door, a full days entertainment can be had. There is an NCP right behind the building which is free on a Sunday so parking is not a problem & if coming by coach there is a place that facilitates also.

“Great skating, shame about the building.”
Reviewed 26 December 2011

If you like ice skating this is the place to go in Bradford, mainly becuase it is the only ice rink. Its great that Bradford has an ice rink (because beyond the Media museum, and some excellent curry houses it does not have much else at the moment-fingers crossed for the new City Park when it opens!) its such a shame it has to be in such a brutal, soul less delapidated building. How can a City that has had so much regeneration money spent on it over the last 25 years, still have buildings like this? Bradford, and Bradfordians, deserve a lot better, starting with some decent Civic leadership.

“What can I say...”
Reviewed 22 December 2011

What I can say about this place... Put in a nice way, it hasn't changed in 20 years and it doesn't look like it will change any time soon.
It could do with a few small touches: upgrade to the flooring, lick of paint, better lighting.
