Went here with the entire extended family. All learned to skate as kids, but hadn't done so in ages. Skate rental available, padded walls around the rink make it easy for beginners, as does the ''marked lanes' on the ice. Had a great time. Truly...More

Enjoyed family skate with my five-year old son. Met a couple of families up from Chicago. One huge oval (400 m) with two international-sized hockey rinks in the middle and a running/walking track on the outside. There's also hockey, figure skating, speed skating, curling, therapy...More

We found this online for a place to meet midway between Chicago and Madison for a family skate. This place is great my 5 and 7 year old niece and daughter had a great time. Nice rentals. Affordable open skate. Music. What a great find!

Unbelievable facility. Best skating facility this side of Salt Lake or Calgary - maybe even better. Wish we lived closer. Incredible for speed skating. But worth the trip for public skating. You can rent skates and go out on the huge 400m oval - even...More

While I love my smaller, local ice rinks and open skating, there's something nice about bringing my children who are learning to skate to a big oval. There's only one direction to skate, there are no fancy tricks happening and there are places to stop...More

My 11 year old daughter took some figure skating classes at the Pettit this summer while we were in Wisconsin on vacation. The facilities are amazing with 2 full size rinks, and the instructors are all encouraging and helpful. Beware that despite 90+ degree heat...More

We had planned an outdoor run, but bitter temps forced us inside. We stumbled upon this indoor facility and was very impressed! How cool to run inside, on a full sized track, while world class speedskaters whizz by! Inexpensive, free lockers and plenty of space....More
