The Rinks offers both inline and ice skating for all ages and all skill levels. The Westminster and Yorba Linda centers boast NHL-size rinks, and Anaheim and Lakewood boast Olympic-size rinks. In addition, Anaheim's league-certified surface is used as the official training facility of the Anaheim Ducks. Skaters can take to the ice for classes on such blade-top pursuits as hockey, figure skating, public skating, curling, broomball, and more. For the ice-averse, The Rinks has three inline-skating centers in Corona, Huntington Beach, and Irvine which play host to youth and adult roller hockey leagues, skating clinics, public skates, and more. Open-skate sessions give aficionados the chance to take a few laps with friends and family, riding atop their own blades or donning a rental pair from the front desk. On Friday and Saturday nights, rinks morph into icy dance clubs, blasting hit music booming through the speakers and projecting music videos onto a jumbo screen. Birthday packages are also available at both locations.

On weekend nights, Cal Bowl turns down the regular lights and turns up the black lights, making lanes glow neon for cosmic bowling. Meanwhile, players themselves supply the soundtrack as they take the mic on the karaoke stage. During the day, open bowling commences as usual, with players sending balls spinning down glossy lanes while fighting the urge to slide down after them. Between frames, guests escape to the 7,000-square-foot fun center, stocked with arcade and redemption games and four billiards tables.
