Was aiite

Grandchildren absolutely loved it..The problem i had was that when a kid would go down the slide they would hog the tyre & not pass to the person waiting in line..And to the woman that was knocking the kids around trying to get to the top of the stairs with tyres..Bitch if you're there the next time i'm there and you do that i will knock you the fuck out..

Ice skates

I think that the skates need to be replaced / renewed .. They are old rusty and broken. Also they need to be NON hockey ice skates because nobody can skate (properly or easily) in the hockey skates! Also from other customers experience, the workers should help children put on the skates and helmets should be enforced for 7 years old and under. The support frames should be free for 10 years of age and under . especially at the high price of tickets. Community card holders and students should receive a discount. Other than that great access in the city center.
