This is THE meeting place for school chums. My kids' go regularly on Friday nights. It's cheap, healthy entertainment for kids. The staff do a good job of monitoring the teen-age crowd.

The people at Wissahickon Skating Club care more about the quality of the Ice surface than any rink within 50 miles of Philadelphia.

I have been playing ice hockey for about 16 years now and have skated at every rink in the general area. WSC is by far my favorite place to skate.

Professional staff & a very involved governing board.

I took my 6 year old here for her first time to skate and was extremely upset with how the majority of the crowd acted. The place was filled with 90% of rude obnoxious pre-teens. There were no consequences taken when they cursed at each other. The way they carried themselves was just someting I didn't want my daughter to be around.
Being located in an upscale neighborhood I was hoping for a more professional family orianted place. What a shame!
My daughter and I were almost knocked over twice just by the skate guards alone. Speaking of guards They didn't even try to assist little ones off and on to the middle of the rink.They were part of the problem.
Getting in was also a huge deal it took almost 1 hour just to pay and another 20 mins. to get skates which they didn't have enough of. What a huge mess of a place.
Maybe what this place needs to do is have a safety review with their guards, come down harder on these out of controlled pre-teens, and maybe have a family open skate slot. Where famlies with little ones or unruly teens can go and have a plesent time.Then maybe just maybe I would return. Until then I will take my family to a more professional and family oriented rink like Center Ice in Oaks or the Skateium in Haverford.
I HIGHLY reccommend STAYING AWAY from this Place that's more the Schuykill expressway on ecstacy in rush hour then a professionaly runned rink like it should be,
