great place for ice skating. Not as busy as many other rinks, so more room to move around. I just went here recently for broomball, it was a total blast. The group rates are a lot better for oakland ice center than for berkeley iceland, so if your group is thinking about an ice skating/broomball event, definitely consider oakland ice center. They have two rinks as well, but one of them is usually taken for hockey practices/games. And when you're tired of ice skating, there are some arcade games and an ice hockey table. Overall, pretty decent place for skating.
