    Make sure you ask for the "hockey" skates when you buy your ticket. They *are* more expensive, but it's only about 10% extra, and you'll have 10x more fun.

The "figure skates" that are included by default do look like skates from a distance, but don't be fooled, the boot is very soft and every session there are a few first-timers walking along with the blades bent outwards with everyone else skating past them. When I first came here, I tried 3 pairs of the so-called "figure skates" and all of them...Read More

    I rang up to enquire about the drop-in ice hockey sessions they hold for the public. I didn't wish to participate, only to watch. The worker told me there's usually a $4 spectator fee but he felt it was absolutely "ridiculous" to charge me just to watch. I agreed...

    The next day, I spent 45 minutes to get there. There were about 5-10 teenagers practising stick drills on the ice. It must've been a different worker because he was pretty adamant about the $4 dollar fee.

    There was only 20 minutes left till the session ended.

When I first came here, I tried 3 pairs of the so-called "figure skates" and all of them had the right blade bending sideways uncontrollably. There is really not much skating that can be done like that.

$4 to sit down and watch 5 teenagers practising ice hockey for 20 minutes. Is that how you encourage people to take up any ice related activity at your arena????
