We went here on Christmas Day, which was great that they were open....but busy!
Queing was only about 30mins and moved fairly quickly.
You pay to skate and then a further partly refundable fee for locker rental. No cameras are allowed on the ice which is enforced by the "ice-marshalls". There is an area just before the ice where you can take photos though.
Once on the ice, keep moving, even if you are stuck to the side. You need to keep moving, a blast of a whistle from the marshalls will hurry you on.
You can skate for as long as you want as far as we could tell, although our feet gave up before our desire to skate did.
The boots hurt...especially if you've spent the holiday walking around NYC.
Our advice is to take several pairs of socks, get slightly bigger boots (you can change them easily enough if you get it wrong) and do them up tightly.
