“lots of fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

I went to this place today and had a lot of fun with my friend.
I was a bit concerned that being about the only westerner i might get a hard time from some of the locals but there's none of that here. Everyone is just having a nice time and enjoying a skate.
I was also worried they wouldn't have my size skates (13) and they didn't but the size 12's fitted perfectly.
I don't own any long pants or shirts so I thought it might get chilly but it was fine in shorts and a t-shirt actually. Just after the walk past the cinema next door you can feel the cold from the rink and when watching in the viewing area it's very cold. I thought I would be shivering in half hour but actually once you get out there and skating it's not cold at all.
I didn't have any socks and they don't seem to have a rule that you need to wear them to use the skates. I considered skating and not using socks but am so glad I opted to buy a pair as when the 2 hour session (330 baht) was over the skates were warm and smelly and clearly had a lot of other users sweat inside. The socks are 50 baht from reception and not bad quality.
I found it odd that there was nowhere to keep a bag. Maybe they have lockers or something but they certainly wern't obvious or anything. I didn't have a bag but my friend did and she had to leave it unnatended in the small area where everyone sits.
they also have a bar that serves alchohol which is nice but i didn't go in. Also there is a shop where you can buy stuff like skates. I saw them around 10-20000 baht i think. 16000 if im not mistaken.
the staff were genrally friendly the reception chick was a bit cold. they guy handing out skates was very nice and the staff on the ice were genrally good as well. i saw them helping some girl with a sprained ankle.
i think for 330 baht for a 2hour session the price is very reasonable. they also have day passes for 800.
overall it was a lot of fun and i plan on going a lot more often now that i have been once.

It was very fun but the ice was to wet so it was hard to stay up on the ice... recommend to go there just to try
