Who knew such a giant indoor skating complex existed in Exeter? With the Canadian and U.S. flags outside flapping in the wind, the entrance looks like something straight out of the Olympics! And the inside of this mega-entertainment center doesn’t disappoint. There are two huge skating rinks to accommodate the many programs offered by The Rinks (public skate, men/women/youth hockey leagues, figure skating clinics, stick practice and “Learn to Skate” just to name a few). Don’t have skates? They got you covered—skate rentals are just $3 for men, women and children.
Outside the rinks you can fuel up at the Power Play Café which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner items, as well as cold and hot drinks, and of course, ice cream treats. Not liking your skating ensemble? Philbrick’s Sports has a satellite store right inside where you can purchase new equipment or update your skating fashions (oh yeah, now you look like a pro!).
Looking for a birthday party venue? Yep, you guessed it, they host ‘em. The Rinks offers two separate party rooms directly off the ice—which is fantastic for the Great Aunt who can’t/won’t skate but still wants to witness all the party action (i.e. hilarious falling and extreme lack of on-ice coordination).
When the weather is warmer (April 2, 2010 is expected to be “Opening Day”), The Rinks also offer 4 lanes of outdoor batting cages (slow, medium, fast and soft ball pitching). And they might also offer the coolest, cheapest and most fun party venue around. For 1 hour, you get one lane, 2 pizzas and 8 drinks for just $8 a player! Play ball!
Check out The Rinks website for all programs and fees. Get on the ice and get your fun on!
