Pineville Ice House

I came here recently with my boyfriend and we had SO MUCH FUN! The atmosphere was incredible, they had fun music playing and dimmed the lights so it felt very intimate and cozy. The rental skates available were of good quality and fit well, and they had spaces to put your real shoes whole you skated. Definitely would come again!
Great rink with small town charm. Would have given 5 stars if the skating guards would control some of the behaviors from some of the public skaters who were throwing footballs across the rink, doing tricks along the rails, skating in the wrong direction, and having no concern for other skaters. The price of public skate is comparable to other rinks. There is a Sports bar with typical bar-style food, which is actually pretty good. Sometimes seating is difficult, but if you are a spectator, the bar is a nice place to sit and stay warm.
This rink closed down for a couple months and then when they reopened they increased their freestyle prices a whopping 40%. They used to offer 2.5 hrs of skating for $10 and now its $15 for 1.5 hrs. Back when they were so much cheaper to skate at than Extreme Ice I used to love this rink because it was a great deal. Now it hardly seems worth it to skate here when you can go to Extreme Ice and pay the same prices with way better accommodations and two ice surfaces. I feel like they really lost their local competitive edge with this huge and sudden price jump.
This was my first visit to the Ice House. It appears to be a hip, popular place for pre-teens/teens/young adults to hang out. Loved the music and neon lights, cool vibe and literally cool bring a flannel/sweater.
Really nice ice rink. Friendly polite staff, tons of parking, easy to get to and clean feeling. Small place to grab food inside, and tons of seating on upper and lower deck. Certainly much nicer than other skate locations in the Charlotte areas. Highly recommend.
