  • Bluestone Cafe is excellent. Great hot chocolate!
  • Hey the season pass. Let's you get in front of the line. Your own skates get you on the ice even faster.
  • Go early to avoid long lines.
  • Clean bathrooms. Bluestone has a nice upstairs area too
  • Best bathrooms! Cute cafe picnic tables to hangout at.
  • There's a diaper changing table in the bathroom.
  • Splash Pad (what the ice skating is in the summer months) is a great spot for little kids to cool off.
  • Bring the whole family!
  • The rinks themselves are beautiful and fun - it's so nice to have 2. Need improvements in administration - waited about an hour for tickets on a Sunday and 30 mins for two hot chocolates and fries.
  • Took us 45 minutes to get tickets at 11:30 on Sunday morning. There were literally 12 transactions ahead of us in the one ticket window that was open. Bad.
  • FYI: The largest skate size they have for men is size 13! I'm a 14 sneaker and was able to cram my foot into the 13 rental but it was pretty tight.
  • Seasonal sports will include ice skating and ice hockey (November through March), Roller skating (April through October) and water play for children and families (May through September).
  • Beautiful Scenery
  • Yemek yenmez...
  • Come in the early morning to skip the lines. Woo-hoo!
  • Skating was cool but be warned, no storage (even of shoes) included. $3 (small) locker rental for 3h. Wasnt too crowded on a Jan Friday afternoon
  • roller skating rink often slim crowds. Nice breeze under the roof when skating
  • Come here for rollerskating!!
  • The center is beautiful but the ticket and food lines are ridiculously sloooooow.
  • The admission ticket booth is behind the skate rental place, don't accidentally stand on line for skates before getting tickets. You'll need to get a locker for your shoes. Lovely rink though :)
