A great place to share with your friends. The music is amazing and the service for rent is good. You have to bring a good jacket and scarf.

It's a good ice rink but generally crowded and chaotic, for example it was hard to find enough space to change into and out of skates. The lines for skate rentals were long.

The Fred Rust Arena is a good place for ice skating lovers of all ages. The only downfall is that they don't smooth the ice often enough.

Want to see future Gold Medal Olympians at work? Just learning or want a family birthday event. This is the place. Large arena, rentals, fun atmosphere. Try it when you have an afternoon and want something different.

This is the home to the University of Delaware Mens and Womens hockey teams. It is a wonderful place to see old fashioned college hockey. Never too crowded but a fun evening of hockey.

Isn't as crowded at the Pond and the hours are more flexible due to not always having hockey games/tournaments.
