Where are we going today?

Ice skating in summer?  Surely not!  But at Iceland Sports Complex in Kentucky...you can!

Iceland Sports Complex have a huge indoor ice rink for kids (and parents - don't be shy!) of all ages and levels to come and enjoy this fun sport.

There are public skating sessions where you just lace 'em up and get skating.  It's great for beginners who just want to spend their time holding the edges and finding their feet on the ice, and it's great for those more experienced as you can skate towards the center and really practice your moves.

It's also a fun time to hang out with your friends and catch up on the latest news from school! 

If you want to try something a little more challenging, Ice hockey and figure skating lessons for all ages are offered, as well as leagues to join if you really want to excel at it!  So you can take your skills and really have them enhanced as you train under the best!

If you want to just have a quick game of ice hockey to just refresh your skills, then stop in for a pick up hockey game. They won't mind you just popping into the odd class to make sure your techniques are still up to scratch. 

So no excuses!

If you think your friends will love it just as much as you do, and want to celebrate your big day there, they can organize your birthday party on the ice.  It makes for a very fun experience! 

Everybody!  Ice...ice...baby!

    I almost did not go there because of the reviews, but since it was an ugly day 4th street live was not an option. My daughter had 4 friends over and they wanted to go skating. We had only been once before a couple of years ago and the place we went to wasn't very nice so we wanted to try a different place. This place seemed much nicer. Yes it is mainly run by kids but we didn't have any real issues. The did bring out a Zamboni half way through the session to clean the ice. The guys bathroom was ok, not filthy. The only issue I really had was the...Read More

    The place is old and a little run down, bathrooms dirty, half the lockers don't work, skates worn out. Concession stand doesnt take debit cards. We had fun though, over all the experience was okay.

    Wretched service! Horrid Management!!! I WILL NEVER RETURN!!! Alpine Rink is a MILLION TIMES BETTER!!!!!!. Iceland gave us junky skates. One child had buckles broken so her skates did not lace properly, one child received two left ice skates from the employee, another child had the tongues ripped out of her skates, my laces were too short on both skates. When returning the skates, my daughter was given two pairs of boots neither of which belonged to her, the employee said they couldn't do anything until they closed. I asked to speak with management...Read More

    Here is the thing... Louisville does not have a huge fan base for ice related sports. As a result, there are only 2 rinks to choose from in the metro area; therefore there is no real competition among ice rinks to push ISC to be better... and in my opinion ISC is far nicer than its competitor. ISC has 2 indoor rinks (North/South), and each are moderately groomed throughout the year. More attention seems to be shown to the ice during the peak months (when the zam is not broken down). The rental skates were recently replaced within the past year,...Read More

The only issue I really had was the skates needed new strings on a couple. Thought loose skates on a novice skater is a bad idea. Overall the kids had a great time and want to go back. Seemed safe enough that I could drop off the kids and not be overly concerned. Can't speak if you are high quality skater about Ice Quality or the such but it was fine for us.

When returning the skates, my daughter was given two pairs of boots neither of which belonged to her, the employee said they couldn't do anything until they closed. I asked to speak with management and he was VERY RUDE! He lied and said the boots were my daughters because there was only one pink pair and I told him to go check because his employee tried to give me two pairs neither of which belonged to my child. He put the pair of boots on my daughter and said these are yours aren't they. I told him they weren't and he loudly said, what do you want me to do about it!!! I said I want to have my child's boots. He said how much did they cost? I told him $20 he said here you go and then he said give me the boots. He stomped off mad at me, when his employees were at fault and I had to carry my daughter out of that horrid place in the freezing rain. It took me two stores to find my daughter a pair of snow boots in HER size the size that ICELAND employees gave to someone else's daughter. I will tell everyone about our experience, with the worst managed ice skating rink in Louisville!!!!!!!

ISC has 2 indoor rinks (North/South), and each are moderately groomed throughout the year. More attention seems to be shown to the ice during the peak months (when the zam is not broken down). The rental skates were recently replaced within the past year, so they are pretty nice. The snack bar is so-so when it is open. It recently went through a mgmt change, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that it improves a little. I have never had a problem with the cleanliness of the facility since my daughter began skating there 4 years ago, but the restrooms, etc. could definitely use a facelift. Everything just looks really beat up. (i.e. When a locker door breaks, it never gets repaired) Likewise, the rinks go through phases where the condensation is really bad at times and it there are drips all over the ceiling. The resulting rust on the ceiling tiles bare the scars of this issue. I do not want to overstate the problems, because in the hundreds of times that I have visited the rink in the past few years, there are only a handful of cases where I remember being upset about the facility maintenance or where it actually interfered with the ice. I agree that some of the building workers/personnel could also use an attitude adjustment. I have had both bad and good experiences with them. The clientele on the other hand (including coaches for both hockey and especially the figure skating) are very pleasant to deal with for the most part. Not having many choices in the region, the coaches that do teach at ISC and compete for ice time are exemplary. My husband and I always enjoy the atmosphere there while our daughter is on the ice (3 days a week year around). We certainly have no regrets spending our days there, although when we travel for competitions we also see the much needed room for improvement at our home facility.
