I went there for the first time about a month ago with my daughter who insisted. I was hesitant at first but I had a blast and it's not expensive at all . they do have rental skates, an area to eat and lockers available. I did notice other things there however she didn't want to leave the ice to... More

My daughter and I skated here and enjoyed the time we spent together. The rental skates work - but become uncomfortable after awhile. Wear thick socks. They have lockers available to rent for .50 cents. They use the rink for other stuff like lessons, hockey etc., so look at their web site to find out the public skate hours. They... More

My Fiancée and I go every other weekend to ice skate. Naturally it's cold, so those of you who don't know, make sure to dress warmly. The staff is nice to work with. They offer classes to teach people to skate, play hockey and other skating skills. They have a small mini golf outside. Great with nice cool weather. But... More

This is the only public ice skating rink in San Antonio. Our family group over Thanksgiving skatedfrom ages 16 mounths to 67 years old. The skates were the best we've used because they were designed between hockey and figure skates. No items allowed on the ice to help the little ones learn to skate. No double blades for the little...

If someone wants to partner and build a completing ice arena and do things right let me know. 100+ people on the ice, what's the cutoff ? When nobody can skate at all ? Kids rough housing, kids that can't skate well skating dangerously fast, kids standing around talking in groups in the middle of people trying to skate and... More

This was a terrific Birthday Party location for my Granddaughter and her friends. Most had never skated before and the staff was very helpful. The staff is very conscious of safety issues. A lot of fun at a reasonable price.

This is the only rink in town, so if you want to skate this is it. The ice is HARD and gets trashed pretty quick with lots of figure skaters going in all directions. I've seen outdoor rinks that had better ice. The ice is so hard you need to have very sharp skates, forget the rental skates if you... More

The management is terrible here. There were teenagers everywhere acting horribly and there were no employees anywhere to be seen. One group of kids even pulled the fire alarm and security came to turn it off while the group of kids just watched. Security didn't even say anything. In addition there was trash everywhere and several of the games weren't... More

If you're wondering what kind of pizza you're eating it's Papa John's. This place has Papa John's deliver 3 or 4 times a week and is so cheap they won't even tip. They order about 10-15 pizzas and want you to cater to them when they are so damn cheap.

The rink is pretty standard. They have young hockey players helping control crowds and picking people up when they fall. The only downside is their selection of plastic rental skates which had no padding, so they gave everyone blisters. That meant we had to cut our skate to only 30 minutes before I had crying kids with boo boos on... More
