“Great fun for the family”
Reviewed 18 April 2013

I love to take the kids here to skate and I enjoy getting out there with them. We go to the Tiny Tot session and there's always a fresh baked cookie break for the children. It's a really nice experience, never too crowded and the people who go there and work there are generally considerate all around.

“OK for the Kids/Teens”
Reviewed 9 March 2013

A good place for the kids and teens to do something. The "rink" appears to be well cared for. Not really for adults. Renting skates takes some time. The snack bar is okay.

“Only place around”
Reviewed 13 November 2012

this is the only roller rink that is close to where we live, it is safe to go to, never overly crowded where you are tripping over people and the snack bar isn't that bad either.

“Good for the kids”
Reviewed 7 July 2012

I skated here as a kid and now my kids skate here. The place needs updating, but as the only skate center still around here, it takes a beating, so it is kind of understandable.

“Great Kids Skating Program!”
Reviewed 30 June 2012

As a family we really enjoy taking our daughter to the Tuesday Kid Skate day. It is $5 and includes their skates, story time and a cookie for snack. They get basic instruction and can follow the teacher around and do fun things like the limbo, hokey pokey, etc. I believe the program only runs in the cooler months and takes the summer off. Looking forward to going again in the fall! As far as the rink itself, I feel it is dirty and very aged. They have a snack area, lockers and bleachers. Fun place for the family.
