Been to this rink twice and really enjoyed it each time. However the second time I went it was a special free skate on Black Friday. There were so many people there that there was hardly any room to skate and the ice got so chunky. However it was a great time had by all!
Public sessions should be longer. Good environment, good music, and they randomly have competitions every now and then when you are there. The disco lights are a hoot, kids enjoy coming here. Price of food in the cafe is also reasonable, not too expensive.
A fun place to go and has a large rink so lots of people can skate on it however I found that after a while it becomes really repetitive and boring. I like how they play music really loudly but the food served here is pretty terrible and the skates really hurt my feet.
Happy to see that there are a couple ice rinks in Auckland.
I come here to watch the West Auckland Admirals (Ice Hockey team in the NZIHL).
Not a big arena so any seat is a good seat to catch the action on the ice.
Arena comes with an area to get snacks and drinks.
Bring a jacket or very warm sweater as the arena is quite cold with no heaters directed toward the stands. (Probably the norm for New Zealand...I'm Canadian so I'm used to arenas with heaters).
I haven't gone ice skating here as of yet so I can't review the ice conditions however I come often for ice hockey games and quite enjoy atmosphere (in my jacket).
