I recently took my 9 year old son and his friends to the Ice Den for his birthday party. My son loves to skate so we thought this would be a fun day for him and his friends. We took 14 kids and had a private locker room which was right next to the ice. The boys loved being able to skate and come back to the room for a snack. To make things easier for me, I got an upgraded Pirate themed package which included everything from table covers, plates, napkins, cups and even the decorations and food. It was VERY easy for me to plan. They even provided a staff person to help feed all the kids, get skates on, and answer any questions we had. The 1hr and 45 min on the ice was long enough to wear the boys out, but they had a blast! I would do this party again in a heartbeat.
Pros: Fun for the kids, easy and hassle free for Mom!
