First time visitors with a young family (5 and 11) in the middle of a busy Saturday. Price to get on the ice was reasonable, especially if you plan to be there for several hours. One thing to note if the kids need the assistance of a frame (in the design of a Penguin on Polar Bear) to push around... More

Both me and my husband visited Planet Ice to watch MK Lightning Ice Hockey game as my husband wanted to see what a game would be like. To be honest I wasn't that keen and thought I would hate it but I decided to go with him and stick by him as I know he would do this for me... More

Saturday night is clearly Hockey night. What a place to go! If you're not a season ticket holder then best book tickets as soon as you can as the arena can fill up quickly leaving only the less attractive seats available. Even so viewing is generally good in most areas. Regular offers for local groups, sports clubs, schools, businesses, etc... More

Went here with the family. Never been before and was surprised at how good it was! My son and his friend really enjoyed watching ice hockey. Good atmosphere and good facilities for food etc. Cheap night out for the kids now my son wants to go every week!

Been here many time and its always very good. Very well looked after and a full size ice hockey stadium, My only complaint is the opening times can be hard to plan around and not really open many evenings so for the 9-5pm workers you are a bit limited.

Hi Daniel S, thank you for taking the time to post your review and for your great feedback on Tripadvisor. I recommend the Evening session on a Monday between 8:15pm and 10:15pm it is a fairly quiet session, if you have little ones the weekend sessions between 11am and 4pm are beneficial as you can skate for the duration of...

We took our children and grandchildren to see Milton Keynes Lightning win a close fought match. With new print at home tickets there's no need to queue at the box office and I'm told the hot dogs are good too!

Myself, my husband, daughter and son came to our first ever ice hockey match last night after getting family discount tickets through my son's school. Every member of staff we came across were friendly, helpful and genuine to not only us but to all customers, and the service from the Papa John's restaurant was quick and efficient.

Here for a trip with my 12 year old daughter and my best friend's daughters as it is getting close to the end of the school holidays.

My daughter has started figure skating on the learn to skate programme and is absolutely loving it. Its a brilliant way of introducing children to the ice and although my daughter has only been doing it 7 weeks she has learnt so much.
