I love ice skating, so it's no surprise that I love gong to "The Ice Palace", Hawaii's only skating rink. At what I think is around $6.50 a person admission charge which includes rental for a pair of skates, it is a bargain compared to a lot of other activites, such as the $8.75 movie at ward theater. However, Oahu, with a population of about 800,000 often overcrowds the small ice palace which only has one olympic sized rink. Overcrowding is definitely a problem if you have little kids that are inexperienced skaters, so it's best to go when it's not peak hours (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoons and nights) if possible. Some of the rental skates are pretty old and disguisting, but you definitely get use to it. Hey at $6.50, what do you expect? Ice palace is definitely a fun and affordable idea for family and friends if you're looking for something to do.
