We had plenty of fun in a short amount of time. The music selection was good to skate along to and the staff was helpful enough. No trouble with staff, but some customers were rude and pushy. It comes with the territory though when you mix skaters with different skill levels in the same rink. Try it out and judge for yourself. Friday night was not terribly crowded but they were busy.

Although back in my HAYDAY, I was an avid skater, admittedly, this was one of few times Ive been to this establishment.Here for my nieces 6th birthday, I was surprised & elated at how much I enjoyed myself once I put the wheels back on.The birthday party setup was cool. Looks like there were about 5-6 parties going on at one time. Makes sense to have them all at once; so you dont time up your thereat of the day/night with newbies & skaters using the skate-guide while professional skaters are hanging out.Snack bar is in place and stocked with yummies for you to snack on. Skate rentals are available, however, theyre a little on the non-skate friendly side, so bring your own if you can.Massive parking lot, which gets filled up fast.I cant comment on the entry price, as I was there for a birthday party & the entry fee was part of the package.All in all, I had a great time. Looking forward to the next go-round, pun intended.

Please do not waste your time. My 10 year old daughters shoes were stolen, and the staff could care less. I was told that there are lockers available, Ive never known this since going to the skating ring when I was a child. I was also told there is a sign , maybe that should be reiterated to kids that only want to skate and not have their items stolen. The staff is not helpful, very unprofessional with no customer service skills whatsoever. I will never visit this establishment ever again. My daughter was very hurt and embarrassed and the lack of care that they give you, makes you really wanna act up on them.

The con: the rental skates were so painful! I basically couldnt use them. Not for long. If I tied them tight, they hurt too badly to enjoy myself. If I tied them loosely, they were too loose to really skate on either. However, other people found them to be fine. Everything else about this place was good. The music was fun pop music. The DJ arranges races and games sometimes. The disco lights could induce seizures, but in a fun way. There werent many skaters on the floor for how many people were there, what with all the birthday parties. There were lockers you could pay to lock or just take your chances and not lock. It felt like a safe place (was there in the afternoon). It was cool and fanned. Bring your own skates and youre good to go.

We went to Airline Skate Center for a birthday party. Overall it was a good experience. My youngest daughter has trouble skating so I had to rent a supporter for $5. Luckily I had cash because I quickly realized this is a cash only facility. If you dont have cash you can visit the ATM machine at the facility. I also wish that they had more of a variety with the type of music they played. I realize they are trying to appeal to a younger geographic, but even my kids hardly enjoy nonstop rap. Other than that everyone seemed to be having a good time.

I am a skater from out of state that was in New Orleans for the weekend. I picked this skating rink (out of 3 near my hotel) based on reviews and was not disappointed. I was impressed by the Saturday night DJ and the skating etiquette of the patrons - they were there to skate and I appreciate that passion. I did have a malfunction with my locker when I tried to lock my shoes up—-that was my only negative experience. I’m kinda surprised that they don’t take credit cards in this day and age, but I knew going in because I had done online research. I would recommend this rink to locals and traveling skaters for a great experience.

They are extremely rude. We went there just yesterday and when we went to pay for the skates and the admissions they accused us of having another child that we didn’t pay for. We payed for all the children we had and we even told them that. They still didn’t believe us and even rolled back the cameras. While we were trying to get the skates they called us to the office again and didn’t wanna let us go on with the rest of the night until they rolled back the cameras. After like 3 minutes of going on and on arguing with the girl in the office that we didn’t have another child the cameras showed them that we INDEED did not have another child. They even made my friend pay for her 1 year old baby who wasn’t even going to skate or do anything but be in his mamas arms. That’s not even all ! When they finally let us go once we turned around the girl started laughing and my mom caught her laughing ! Extremely UNPROFESSIONAL. They claimed that they weren’t laughing at us but when I went to ask them what they were laughing at the girl said that “I don’t even understand why you had a attitude” then the cops there super IGNORANT. Wanted to pull us aside and ask what the problem was. I told him that they were laughing. He said “So?” I said that is SOOO rude ! This cop was literally yelling at my face. I would NEVER go there again in my LIFE. WORST EXPERIENCE IVE EVER HAD. Not to mention their bathrooms are filthy and stinky and the staff had a disgusting attitude.

This place is amazing I took my little cousin there on Saturday for her surprise party she had a blast. She could barely skate but she had fun she couldnt stop smiling and hugging me thats how happy she was to be there. The customer service was great also there was no reason not to be happy, its a family friendly place. I highly recommend to people to go there seriously.

Review №37

This was a pretty good Skate Center. I really like that they had some skate Walkers with rollers on the bottom that kids can use when they dont know how to skate very well. I went there with my kids on a day that there happened to be a couple of day camps they are at the same time. That was pretty chaotic I wish that the management there would have been more on top of that but otherwise if the day camps wouldnt have been there I think we would had a great time.

Moderately ohkay. Went on sunday when it is $5. Music was so loud I couldnt hear anything, not even my parter talking directly in my ear. Rental skates were absolutely aweful, they are obviously never clean and I doubt they were sanitized between uses. I couldnt tell if it was the bad rental skates or the floor but something was not flat and it made it hard to skate.

The workers/police officer there were VERY rude. I walk in and see a woman in the front with a table thinking she needed to collect my ticket so i hand it to her and she raises her voice and says I dont need your ticket, So i ask Well what do you need? and she goes your phone? (with a NASTY attitude) and im confused why she needs my phone and I ask why she needed it and She starts questioning my why im asking so many questions and tries to take my phone out my hand. I ask again why do you need my phone? and the police officer sitting in the back stands up and starts yelling at me and says Just put your phone in the bucket and stop asking so many questions. I was so flabbergasted that the workers and the police officer couldnt answer a simple question without turning it into an argument. It was VERY embarrassing that the situation had to be handled that way. I wont EVER go back there again not even if i was paid to.

Very disappointed. I used to work as a skate guard at Skate Country 44 years ago and thought I would introduce skating to my girls and take them here. The place in ponchatoula we to has terrible floors. So I wanted to show them what a real skating ring looks like.Although the floors are what I expected at Airline Skate Center, they played nothing but Gangsta Rap! I didnt realize I stepped into the hood with my two children. Most of the children were under 13 so why the gangsta rap? Some songs had so much profanity that the sensoring took away most of it.Definitely not going back.

This place is absolutely awful! DO NOT waste your time or money here! It smells absolutely horrendous inside but not as bad as the skates smell, the skates are unable to be tightened because the laces are either knitted or weak thread! The customer service——a 6 year old checked me out! She was cute but she’s 6!! These people are running an extremely shabby and disgusting business!! Cash only......I wonder who hasn’t paid their taxes!!! Do not go here!It is AWFUL!

Cheap food and nice staff but the music was remixes of vines and inappropriate songs for a family skate.The songs also got cut off like 3 times per song. The staff also enforced rules against wearing hats but they where fine with 8 year olds smashing walkers into each other, skating in opposite skating direction, and lying down in the middle of the rink.
