Its the best skating arena in Victoria. Its full of fun and entertainment. the music, the big TV, the disco lights and the cheerful instructors at the arena all add to the fizz.

First time we'd seen ice hockey player, two Melbourne teams. An easy team journey from central city, followed by just a 200m walk. Quickly through the entrance to reserved seating. Great atmosphere, and clear view of the playing area. Recommended to any Melbourne visitors.

Think we had about perfect seating, center of top row, though any middle seating would be ok. Keen to go again when next in Melbourne

If I have booked tickets with numbered seats for ice hockey on Sunday 4 pm will I have to line up to get in? I have read that staff do not police seats and it may be that people sit in your seats.
