The Peaks Ice Arena is one of the 2002 Olympic sites for both men's and women's ice hockey games. Currently, the Peaks Ice Arena serves as a community skating rink and sports facility.
This is a fun & fairly inexpensive ice rink to visit in Utah, making it a great outing for a family. The rink is pretty big & rarely super busy, so it's a perfect place for kids to learn how to skate. I would recommend knee pads for first timers, and a sense of humor. Finish up with a trip to the snack counter or get some hot chocolate afterwards and you have a perfect family outing.
If you're looking for a deal, I suggest heading over to citydeals.com. You can buy their "Pass of All Passes" for $20, which gets you into Seven Peaks Water Park (SL or Provo) + Trafalga, bowling at Seven Peaks Family Center, admission to the Seven Peaks Ice Rink, plus tickets to a variety of sporting events available in Utah, including Rocky Mtn. Raceway for a whole year!
Fun fun fun!! Take the whole family, dress nice and warm and be ready to have a good time!! You can rent skates there for any size the ice is well maintained and its even got bleacher seating for parents to sit on while watching the kids! and afterwords get yummy snacks from the snack bar!
Seven Peaks ice arena is so fun. We've been there a lot as a couple, and once took our son when he was a baby and wore him in an Ergo on our back. If you love ice-skating, you will like this clean, large arena. It can run a little pricey, but we often will have church or BYU activities where you get in for free and get free donuts/hot chocolate. If you are paying, it's not exorbitant and definitely worth it for a great family evening. They have nice skates for rent and there are lockers to keep your things while you skate. The management is really nice and there is a little snack bar as well that isn't too pricey. It can get a little crowded with dating college students on the weekends, so pick a weeknight and you will have plenty of space for skating!
We really need to go here in the SUMMER when we WANT to be cool! But for about $3.50 admission and skates, we come here and have fun. I would recommend a helmet and definitely a fleece and gloves anytime year round (we saw 3 accidents involving blood the last time we went! So.....a little scary). But you just skate around and around. They have "walkers" (free) for the kids, but they really need more, since my one child had to share and that caused a lot of problems. Overall a good experience. Their skating lessons are pretty well priced too, and start at $25 for 8 lessons, BUT you have to pay a silly $10 fee to some US Skating board to do them!
There are several rinks here for both hockey and skating. There is also an area for soccer and during the winter lacrosse, rugby, and football teams come to practice. Instruction is offered for both hockey and figure skating at different levels.
Rinks are available for rent on certain nights if you have big groups to skate want or to play broom hockey or you can you can pay general admission and come for public skate. You can also call ahead to plan a birthday party.
Prices aren't too high for admission and skate rental is available also for a small fee. There is a small snack concession area and plenty of bathrooms in the facility. The arena is open year round so go get your skate on 365 days a year.
Ice skating might be dangerous for small children. Most patrons skate around the rink in a circle in the same direction for one hour and then in reverse for the second hour of public skate. Figure skaters who wish to practice tricks or skills usually do so in the middle of the rink.
This is not really for smaller kids. Ice skating can be hard and dangerous so for younger ones and toddlers, this isnt really the place. But for Older kids and adults it is great fun. We have had dance contests, races, and just played on the ice, all the while laughing while we fell. It was great fun.
This is a great place to take kids that are just a little bit older and can manage ice skates. It is a large ice sheet with plenty of room for the kids to skate and not run into other people. It is usually moderately busy but not to the point where it feels crazy. They do have skate rentals there for a fee but it is probably cheaper to rent there than to bring your own.
We had so much fun when the Olympics where in Utah and its is really fun to skate where the Olympics were. My daughter took ice skating lessons there a few years ago and they were great. The price was really low and that included 4 lesson and skate rental. They also gave her a few free passes to come back and skate for free.
We love the Peaks Ice Arena, located next to the Peaks Water Park. It seems like a "duh" to do this in the hot summer, and it's an indoor rink and GREAT! They have remodeled and it is tons better with more room and cleaner, along with a concessions stand. Can rent skates for about 2.50. It was made for the 2002 Olympics for Hockey. Great place to skate!
this ice rink is fun for ther first hour then its like... uh what to do now??
I definatly would suggest finding a different rink to skatew at. the pricing isnt wonderful. its quite the jip. and the employees are all high school kids whom are snotty and i couldnt figure out how they were hired.
