This is the place to be in the winter time i go every year on just about every weekend. the pricing is not as high as Rockefeller center and you get to stay as long as you like, bring as many friends as u like, there are lockers to keep your items safe. and the employees are very nice and respectful. i will continue going there every year with my friends and family. WE LOVE IT! (= maybe u'll see me there

Me and my friends go here every winter to ice skate we absouluty love it here. The rink is huge and you can skate for a long time, not just an hour like other skating rinks. The staff is very nice and helpful, The prices arent bad, you can also rent a locker to put all your stuff in, and its a good place to spend an hour or so skating. I will continue to come here every year!

You must absolutely experience skating at this premiere outdoor rink during the wintertime. It is an awesome, beautiful experience. The rink is nestled in Central Park-you are transported to another time and place here. We go every year to get into the holiday spirit, but have found long lines in the most crowded of times. If you have your own skates, bring them-you can save lots of time. The have very good skating lessons here,a nd we have been to some birthday parties that are lots of fun.

This is a good rink in terms of quality and fun. The biggest problem with this place is the capacity. Wollman Rink offers unlimited skating for a flat price; so people tend to stay a very long time. It is located inside Central Park, so it does tend to attract a big crowd.

The more people, the longer the wait. On days when it gets really crowded, the ice gets resurfaced quite frequently. That is not good because it causes more wait time between skates. Generally, it takes 30 minutes for the ice to get resurfaced.

PROS: good rink
CONS: crowded

It was extremely busy and the music was loud but it was all part of the new york experience. The rink is a nice size and everyone was fairly considerate of one other. The prices were a little high. The staff was nice and helpful.

My favorite part about this skating rink was taking our picture in front of it and sending it to friends and family who all ate it up. The rink is bigger than the Rockefeller Center rink, so that's one plus. It can be crowded, but like other rinks, if you go early in the year when they open in October you will have a relatively hassle-free, fun experience good for visitors or natives.

Yes, it's crowded. Yes, it's expensive. If you're a local, maybe this rink isn't worth your time, but to a visitor this is a great New York experience outside the standard list of tourist activities. Our group had a blast on a recent trip. Do it!

Ice Skating in New York's Central Park. If you want that experience, this is the place to go. The rink is not very big, but the tunes they pump out are fun and the overall experience is worth the high price you pay. If you don't live in NY, then this is one of those things you have to do when visiting in the winter months and the cost is the same as any other great, classic NY experience.
Afterall, this place is built by "The Donald." You should expect to pay a little.

I had fun ice skating here for about 10 minutes. The music is good, but the prices are crazy high, and the rink is always incredibly crowded. The rental skates are terrible...they hurt my ankles and made it very uncomfortable to skate. But the atmosphere is very nice....you get a nice view of Central Park as you skate. There is a snack bar to get some hot chocolate if you get too cold. One problem with this place is if you get tired skating, there aren't many places to sit down to take a break.

PROS: Nice location in Central Park, good music
CONS: High prices, crowded skating rink

I had a first date here and it was absolutely perfect. There is nothing like skating and seeing portions of Central Park and I think the rink is bigger than the one at Rockefeller Center so that's always great too. There are plenty of eating spots nearby and you can also find stands to grab hot chocolate on your walk back. This is a must do activity.

PROS: A lot of space
CONS: They closed early but I'm unsure if this is because there was a group
