We received two tickets to go ice skating as part of the Philly Overnight Package. We almost passed on the opportunity, but thankfully we didn't. This place was our favorite part of the trip. Go in the evening when everything is lit up and beautifully...More

The skates were in poor condition, cutting into our legs and hurting our feet. I expect a little discomfort with rented skates but these were terrible. The rink itself is not kept up well, with very rough ice. This is not a good rink if...More

If youre here in the winter, this is a great spot for families, or couples to come to, and just hang out, and enjoy winter in philly.

I planned a "surprise date night" and it actually turned out to be a surprise to me too. I thought we were just going ice skating - and being that it's Philly - I expected it to be a $50+ night just for the skate...More

We had a good time at the River Rink ice skating. It did get crowded even though they restrict how many people can purchase tickets for each time slot. I highly recommend purchasing tickets ahead of time online. Many families showed up and we're turned...More

The setting is pretty special. We went at night and the rink is brightly lit in beautiful colors, music is playing and you can see the waterfront and bridge. It is something you will see anywhere else. The lines to get in are pretty long....More

River rink is tucked away by the river at Market street. Signage is minimal so know where you are going. Parking is scarce if you don't want to pay $20 (bring coins if you are lucky enough to find a coveted non-payStation meter). Arrive before...More

The weather is supposed to hit 60 degrees this weekend. Doesn't that mean the ice will be pretty choppy?
