My kids had never been Ice-skating and this gave them a really good intro. We initially tried Sat evening, but it was too full with a long line, so came back Sun morn. I found the equipment rental a little pricey given that it was reasonably well used, but it was adequate. There were also penguins for the kids which... More

Great way to get outside and have some fun ... You also can't beat the groupon deal $15 includes entry and skate rentals for two!!! Definately will go back with or without a groupon ... We had a blast! Then just down the block for drinks and dinner!

My son and I always have a good time at the skating center. Thanks God we do not need to rent the run down equipment since we both have our skates now.

Wonderful place for outside fun in Providence! Especially beautiful when the sun is shining! The skating rink is fantastic with easy access on and off the ice. The walk ways are all rubberized, even in the restrooms. Plenty of benches for getting your skates on and a full snack bar and Subway. Skates rentals available for adults and children. You... More

Great place to get outdoors in the winter. Big and open, and not as crowded as Boston or NYC. Reasonably priced for families. I just feel like they could do a bit more around it to make it a bit nicer and more desirable to go to. Really pretty when they have the Christmas decorations up!

Great family fun! If you dont own your own skates no worries, the rentals are very reasonable! And dont worry if your not the greatest skater....trust me, not everyone there is a great skater. Youll have allot of fun and laughs!

Enjoy taking trips for date nights or family time to the ice rink. Big enough to enjoy but can become quite crowded at times with some rude skaters who forget to have respect for others on the ice. A little more control over that would be nice

I am a frequent skater at Fleet. The rink is best during the day up 'til about 6PM. Then it gets crowded, especially on weekends. Can also be windy in late afternoon. Mornings have very strong sun glare in your eyes. I think best times are 4:30 'till 6:PM You are out in the open with everyone walking past so... More
