Went here with my hubby for some ice skating fun and hot cocoa. Enjoy this place when we want to do something fun together.

Let me start by saying that I grew up in Minnesota, where ice hockey is like another religion so my standards for ice rinks is pretty high. That said, the Iceplex is a reasonable place to skate year round and if you look for coupons, very reasonable priced.

The rink itself is nice and the few dealings I have had with the employees have been positive. Last week, I saw an employee find a folder left at the rink by a customer. Instead of throwing it away as many businesses would do, the employee found a phone number and left a message for folder owner. That was really... More

Been going to this place for years. Fair price and good place to skate. Popular for birthday parties and on weekend nights. Would not recommend going on Friday or Saturday night if inexperienced because it is so full but at all other times it is great. Also, they have lessons which I have taken there throuh York County Parks and... More

Awesome staff, (particularly the guy in the pro shop), wonderful instructors that are great with kids, and an overall nice place to spend an evening or day with your family. You can do parties there as well. Rental skates are...rentals, they can be beat up but they are better than no skates! I had forgotten what a good exercise ice... More

My Grandson learned to ice skate and play ice hockey at the ICEPLEX. It seems to be well run and sponsors a number of Ice Hockey Teams here on the Peninsula. It has a fair snack bar. Good viewing areas, and the ice is maintained at a high standard. If you like to ice skate, this is a great way... More

If you review just the ice skating aspect of this place it is great. During open skating they play music, have employees out skating just in case of accident or too reckless skating and they continually groom the ice through the day. Seems everyone has their place - little aspiring pros out in the middle practicing their spins, families with... More

I enjoy taking my kids here for open skating at random for something fun to do. This is especially good when the weather is not cooperating for outdoor activities. The skate rental and fees are reasonable, which results in fun for everyone.
