  • Do you have storage for our valuables while we skate? No. It's recommended not to leave any valuables unattended. We are not responsible for any lost/stolen items.
  • Do you rent the rink for private parties? Yes, that can be arranged!  Give us a call at Dobson Town Hall 336-356-8962 to discuss in more detail. 
  • Can I reserve a skate time? Not at this time, but we'd like to make that happen in the future.
  • I want to skate for longer than 20 minutes. Can I just pay for 2 sessions at once?  Yes, if no one is waiting to skate.  If there is a wait, you'll have to get back in line.
