Is it possible to visit New York City in April and not visit The Rink at Rockefeller Center? Possibly, but we wanted to have the experience, so we did. The Rink is not large, but many people only skate for a short time so even...More

Visited with my 14 year old daughter in February and we had an amazing experience! We did not skate due to us not being used to the cold weather...lol! But loved the view of all angles!

Ideal for the family, pleasant day and a non-holiday season Friday morning, made this a memorable ice skating experience for us all! Skates are available for renting. Don’t expect a bargain for this outing. It’s New York AND definitely an iconic location. Even my teenage...More

Had the opportunity to skate the rink and enjoy dinner at the Rockefeller Center a few weeks ago. The rink itself sees a ton of skaters every day so the ice is not the greatest, but to be expected. We paid for the VIP skate...More

Thw rink is smaller than we thought, but not crowded on a late Friday night. Classic and must do and worth the time and effort. Uncomfortable skates, but that's expected for rentals. $70 for 2 skaters with rentals and ice time.

What an amazing experience! First the staff was friendly, attentive, and made you feel comfortable. They helped pick the right skates and made exchanging sizes very easy. The rink was well maintained, cleaned at regular intervals, and the staff were non intrusive. Skating on the...More
