Packed all the time (I drive by when I go see my sister). Came here for skating for my nephews first time as his parents do not skate. For learning, I would avoid it. It is not even! there is even a little hill on one end. If you know how to skate you can manage fine (or like me who hasn't been on the ice in years). They do have mats everywhere to walk on so that was a nice plus!Cafe attached to rink, Packed ... no extra tables. Food was average. Drinks, the same. Nothing that would make me return just for it. Doubt I would return as too much people for the small rink; went on a regular weekend (hate to see a long weekend!).
