The Ice Ranch
With two NHL-size rinks, seating for 350, an on-site Italian restaurant, The Ice Ranch hosts myriad activities involving ice-skating and entertainment. The staff is experienced in teaching patrons how to excel in all manner of ice-centric sports, from hockey to curling to broomball. Besides competitive programs, the Ice Ranch hosts skate lessons, public-skating sessions, and Zam Camp, where attendees get to sit in the driver's seat of the Zamboni and test their theory to determine whether the machine is actually a transformer or not.
