One of the most Comfortable Hockey Rinks!!
Jan 2017
As I hockey mom I have been to many ice rinks. This is the only rink I know of that you can literally take your coat off while you watch the game. There is no sitting on cold aluminum bleachers.The bleachers have warmers above that keep you nice and toasty. They have a nice concession stand and the people working were friendly. The rink is located in a great spot with shopping and restaurants in walking distance. Great for something to do in between games.

Playing in a "Wild" Arena!!!
Sep 2016
Our hockey team traveled to Charleston to take on the West Virgina Wild team in an exhibition game. They were very excited to have us visit and we were excited to travel to play.

The Wild play at the Memorial Ice Arena, which is located off of RHL Blvd off of South 119. The Memorial Ice Arena was named for the memories of those who died in the 9/11 attacks. It is a one sheet of ice arena with a snack bar, 2 party rooms, arcade and nice common room with fireplace.

The rink is standard size and offers bleacher seating. The nice part of the seating is the plastic covering on them which offers those seated protection from the cold metal seats common in most arenas. They also offer overhead heaters for the comfort of the viewers.

The arena services mostly extend to public skates but the Wild do practice there as well as the Marshall Club Hockey team. Prices for public skate are on average with most arenas.

The staff was friendly and welcoming as was the Wild team. We were impressed with the facility as a whole and definitely would return to play them again. It was very enjoyable.

Great ice rink
Dec 2013 • Couples
I have been going to the SC ice rink pretty regularly for the last year or so. Winter is by far the busiest time, some days filled to capacity. I love skating in the summer, cool when it is hot and often no more than 20 or 30 people on the ice. They are usually really good at keeping the ice smooth, i noticed this when i went to another rink and it felt like skating on gravel.

If you haven't really skated before but are interested in learning I recommend their learn to skate program, they have classes for all ages. My wife and I were occasional skaters going maybe once a year but after one set of lessons I was doing things I had wanted to do for years but didn't know how to, although i still can't really skate backwards like i want, guess it's time for more lessons.

Food is pretty basic: bottled drinks, hot chocolate. instant cappuccino, popcorn, hot dogs, candy, etc. They have a number of tables in the (heated) lobby area plus spectator seating in the rink area. There are also some arcade games in the lobby, including air hockey of course.
