  1. Customer Service

    I have sent a lengthy e-mail about today’s event where my 13 year old daughter was upset by an extremely rude young male member of staff.. because of his own error! Shocking service and ruined our family afternoon!

  2. dangerous

    Health and safety doesn’t exist . My daughter has been knocked over by hockey skaters on more than one occasion. There is rarely a steward on the ice . Apparently they don’t have to put a steward on until 70 people skating which is ridiculous
