Pineville Ice House
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.
Gary Shortland is a predatory coach. My work schedule changes from week to week and it was impossible to meet at the time Gary decided he wanted me to be available and I let him know this. After speaking to the head of figure skating, Gary said he would refund $100 of the $200 he still owed me back. He never sent it. You're supposed to be able to trust these people, and Gary outright lied to me. Don't trust this facility with your money because they skirt blame by saying the coaches are private contractors, which they are. But still nothing was done to get my refund to me even after I was told I'd get half back. Predatory rink. I cannot recommend. Accept some accountability for the people you let work at your facility.
Enjoyed our time here for the Carolinas Spring Tournament. Great place for kids and parents to relax and enjoy some hockey.
Reasonable price. Condition of rental skates could be better. Many had broken or worn laces, leather and interior.
A nice ice rink with the one stand out feature of a bar/food area close to the rink. The ice was chewed up when we got there but I blame that on the sheer volume of people at the time during the holidays. A fun experience overall though I can't comment on events held here.
