Each Skateland & Great Skate location maintains an arsenal of tools for family fun: rows and rows of orange wheeled roller-skates, breezy air-hockey boards, and colorful arcade games. As skaters show their rolly-rink prowess, they whiz past colorful murals, depicting fireworks against a black backdrop or a beach populated by surfers and elderly grains of sand. When resting legs, kids operate claw machines, attempt levitating along with air-hockey pucks, or try their hands at skee-ball to win tickets that they can redeem for prizes. Add a reserved area, a party host, pop, and pizza to the equation, and the roller rinks also make for a exciting birthday.

The ice rink at Arcadia Ice Arena invites bladed feet for a full calendar of public skate times, hockey leagues, and figure-skating lessons. For public skating sessions, skaters may bring their own skates or rent hockey or figure skates before carving figure eights and love notes to the zamboni into the ice. Beginners and Olympic hopefuls alike can improve their technique through the arena's Learn to Skate programs, complete with private or group lessons.
Every winter, CItyScape Phoenix adds additional entertainment to its collection of restaurants, shops, and pastimes: CitySkate Ice Rink. Once the November chill has firmly set in, the Ice Rink provides weeks of family-friendly fun, and, of course, ice skates to rent. While open most days for regular skating, the rink also hosts a few special events. Every Tuesday, for instance, the owners select a new theme for ice skaters to celebrate, such as Elf Day or Santa Skate or Ugly Sweater Night or Help! Everyone's Feet Turned Into Knives Day. Additionally, they dedicate every Saturday evening from 9 p.m. to midnight to adults. They bring in DJs and ice dancers as entertainment, play games, and give prizes to the winners.
An electric, zero-emission Zamboni roves over Oceanside Ice Arena’s 200′ x 89′ rink, readying the ice for the facility’s hockey leagues, broomball competitions, and open-skate sessions attended by throngs of casual skaters. Open since 1974, the arena has built a solid reputation over the years, one that’s largely a result of hosting the practices and games of Arizona State University’s hockey teams. When the rink’s not being occupied by hockey and broomball players or Zambonis carving messages of hope into the ice, the skating public is encouraged take to the ice during designated open skate sessions.
