My fiance loved it!! It was a little crowded though.
Want smooth ice
Please zamboney the ice more!!! I love ice skating but after a hockey game, expect the ic o be rougher than usual.
Tickets were sold out that night so there were a lot of people on the ice, but about half way through about half the people left. It was great and a lot of fun!
Ice Skating was great but harder than it looks!
The public ice times sold out quickly so either buy tickets early or don't bother. The civic center does schedule public skate after hockey games but those are generally after 9 p.m. so the number of afternoon times are very low (perhaps they should consider increasing) which is the reason for the sell out. Although the line seemed very long, there were plenty of sizes of skates and an hour to skate was MORE than enough. I was tired after 20 minutes because skates are heavier than you think and you continually stop and go due to small children all around you...so don't go out thinking you will have room to actually practice some skating techniques. I would recommend this - but have patience with the process. It is a family friendly event for all ages.
My girlfriend and I did this randomly while in town. It was a great time and fun for all ages. There were people of all ages and skill. Music playing was from current radio playlists. Take the time and spend the money.... Well worth it!
