My young daughter participated in the Learn to Skate program after only having skated a few times and absolutely fell in love with ice skating. She now goes skating every weekend and is able to skate backwards, do spins and skate fast. We also had her birthday party here and all the kids (with different experience levels) had an absolute blast. Kids that had never skated were even able to participate without their parents help because of the skate trainers that were available to help them balance on the ice. Great place for skating year round, highly recommend!
