    Great ice skating rink! Not too busy on the weekends. Stay in Brooklyn and don't make the trek all the way into Manhattan for skating. Two admission tickets plus skate rentals were under $30.

    The rinks themselves are beautiful and fun - it's so nice to have 2. Need improvements in administration - waited about an hour for tickets on a Sunday and 30 mins for two hot chocolates and fries.

    Love the rink & splash pad, but dining rules for Bluestone Cafe are the worst. You can't take your tray outside the dining area, but also can't bring outside (kid) food into the dining area at all?

    Bring your own hot chocolate. The cafe was making them one at a time. We waited 45 minutes. The other snack counter RAN OUT, yes, of hot chocolate. We got there at 10:30 though so no wait for the ice.

    The admission ticket booth is behind the skate rental place, don't accidentally stand on line for skates before getting tickets. You'll need to get a locker for your shoes. Lovely rink though :)

    FYI: The largest skate size they have for men is size 13! I'm a 14 sneaker and was able to cram my foot into the 13 rental but it was pretty tight.

    Splash Pad (what the ice skating is in the summer months) is a great spot for little kids to cool off.

    Look for stick and puck sessions. Best place to get some hockey time in throughout NYC, and it's outdoors.

    Watching people fall while skating is almost as fun as actually falling while skating. Check it out!

    Skate area is nicely done. On opening night, the skaters were aggressive and announcements that it's not a speed skating ring were repeated, but it did not stop folks from being disrespectful.

    Whining staff gets old: why did you take this job if you "want to go home" because you don't like the cold? Walkie talkie guy sucks but rinks themselves are great!

    Hey the season pass. Let's you get in front of the line. Your own skates get you on the ice even faster.

    Ice skates only go up to men size 13. Lefrak doesn't care about big people.

    Check in while you're at the cashier or they won't honor it. That's some BS @LakesideBrooklyn

    Took us 45 minutes to get tickets at 11:30 on Sunday morning. There were literally 12 transactions ahead of us in the one ticket window that was open. Bad.
