I honestly don't think a thing has changed on the ice in years but it a wonderfully fun day out and still not terribly dear for a family fun day, my girls loved it. Combined with the other activities on site it is perfect for a wet day!

The Dundonald ice bowl is definitely worth a visit for a fun, family day out. There is bowling, ice skating, places to eat, and a huge play area for kids (which can be hired out to adults!). Outside there is mini-golf, and just beside the main building there is Clip n' climb and an airsoft rifle activity centre. If you... More

Took my boys here, was a great day out. They really enjoyed ice skating. My youngest was given a penguin aid which worked wonders for his confidence as within 30 minutes he felt confident enough to go himself and he never looked back!! Can't wait to take them back

Plenty to do in the building for folks of all ages. Could maybe do with renovation or decoration in some areas.

The different shoes and boots we were given and the facilities on site were great, but the attitude and lack of attention from staff are letting the place down.

We stayed at the Dundonald Caravan Park (which is nearby) and had a go at the ten pin bowling twice. Enjoyed it both times. Would have liked to have had a go at the Adventure Golf but sadly didn't have enough time. Maybe next time! Plenty to do for everyone and the staff were very helpful and friendly. You can... More

The children sort of enjoyed the crazy golf activity, although they did bicker most of the way round which may have dampened my enthusiasm. The course was fairly good, not too crowded at the time we went although a large group arrived at the end of our round and it would have been pretty crowded at that time. I paid... More

We headed here on a rainy day hoping to entertain a 4year old. Our first stop was Indiana land. It is in serious need of renovation or at very least a good clean. Everything was dirty and there was an awful smell. We left as soon as our 4 year old would let us. We then went outside to play... More

As far as activities offered for families, adults, young ones and teenagers, this place can't be faulted. It is although somewhat pricey for said activities and in such a drab dreary and smelly interior. Staff could benefit from customer service and basic pleasantries and civiĺities to patrons partaking of facilities within the establishment training.
