Came for the public skate time with my girlfriend while staying in a nearby town and we had a lot of fun. Not too many people and the rink is nice and big, so there's room for everyone. The prices are fair and we'd definitely do it again if we had the chance!

We can't say enough about the friendliness of the staff. We loved skating at this facility and we did several other activities on and near these grounds! It's a fabulous destination for all ages!

We have been here for several hockey tournaments. The ice is probably the best sheet to skate on in New England. The rink staff keeps the locker rooms clean and well maintained and the floors are clean and free from sand and dirt (which could be a problem given the foot traffic to & from the parking lot). The clean... More

We've been to Waterville 3 years in a row for Weekend Hockey Tournaments. The tournaments are well run. The kids have good ice on which to play. Viewing areas are good.

The staff and other skaters were very friendly and patient with me as a first time skater. The rentals were $5 per pair and we had free admission with pass from our hotel. It was a nice activity! My husband loved the 80s soundtrack. :)

Can't think of a better way to beat the heat then lacing up a pair of skates and taking advantage of $5 public skate sessions! Wow! Right in the town square too! We had decent rentals and the kids thought it was 'cool' to skate with shorts and tshirts on! It wasn't that crowded and we stayed to watch a... More

The rink and the arena are great for ice skating. It's located right in Waterville's Town Square, which is convenient. The problem is when you have to rent skates. First, the wait in line to rent the skates seemed to take forever, which is a problem when public skating is only open for 1 hour a day (big mistake in... More

The rink used to have a nice schedule mix with games, leagues and public skate. Management has changed and the new schedule is hockey almost 100% of the time. No more public skate unless you happen to be there during one of their infrequent mid-week free skate sessions.

No snack bar! One Keurig machine with $2.00 pods for sale. There's a lot of shopping in the village but if you leave the rink you'll miss the game!
