Our Impressions of Dundee Ice Arena

The Arena opened in September 2000 and is one of the most modern ice facilities in the country. It's a state of the art multipurpose ice arena offering an excellent skating venue for all ice users. All types of ice disciplines are encouraged. It can be turned into a venue for concerts, conferences, product launches or hospitality events. As a concert venue the capacity is 5,000 and as an ice arena the capacity is 2,400.

The use of a 'single span' roof means that most seats in the arena offer a good view. Visiting fans are normally seated opposite the players benches, although they are welcome to sit in any unreserved seat. Season Ticket holders seats are mainly behind the players benches and are marked 'reserved'.

Within the arena there's a small Skate and Hockey shop, a cafe, changing rooms with showers, first aid room, and skate hire offering both hockey and figure skates. Above the cafe, to one end of the arena and over-looking the Olympic size ice pad, there's a lounge bar, a function room with a bar and hospitality rooms.

Previous visitors may not have been too impressed with the food served, the service or the general cleanliness of the building, but following a number of complaints by its users, the Arena have recently [september 2003] brought in a new catering firm and have 'scrubbed' the building from top to bottom. The food served and the staff are much better and the prices are very reasonable.
