Been coming here since I was a kid and now we bring at less 13 in a group of kids to skate and when I ask to buy cup for the kids to drink water out they said no. Wth is wrong with paying for a small cup ?.... It was not my choice to give them one star but u can't submit unless you do. (BS) ZERO 000

Overall

Had my sons 10th birthday party here, BIG MISTAKE. For starters, the wrong date was booked. Thankfully I called the day before to confirm, yet unfortunately I would have had a better time at another roller rink if they couldn't accommodate us. 2nd, the party was booked for 2pm, opening time. DO NOT ARRIVE EARLY. They WILL NOT let you in the door to set anything up and make everyone wait outside....including any other parties booked for the day. 3rd, DO NOT BRING BALLOONS. They confiscate the balloons at the door because they claim the balloons get sucked into their exhaust system. Would have been nice if they told us that before we spent the wasted money on balloons. 4th, DO NOT let the staff take your cake. You can tell them to not tip it, bang it whatever, but they throw it around like it is nothing and your cake will be destroyed before the candles are in place. 5th, in my case I paid for 15 kids (around $200), and had about 20 adults (grandparents, aunts, uncles, parents, etc.) They provide you with only 2 booths that sit a maximum of 4 kids each. 6th, the area they give you for the booths becomes a runway for roller skaters falling and bumping into everything/everyone. NO STAFF direction. 7th, there is a separate AREA for the kids you paid for to eat their 1 piece of pizza and non-refillable beverage. But wait, they are only given 25 minutes to consume their pizza, drink their beverage, then sing happy birthday and eat cake. In this area, there is NO room for the other adults who attended the event to celebrate their son, grandson, nephew, etc birthday. Plus this was not advised to us before nor during the birthday party! It was an utter kerfuffle. When trying to clear things up, the "party planner" was very rude and walked away when trying to talk to him. The staff was severely UNDERSTAFFED and very RUDE!. After the candles are blown out, the adult party attendees go back to the small booths in first area to hopefully enjoy some smashed cake. NOT. They DO NOT allow cake in the birthday party area. So no room anywhere for them to eat cake. No shocker seeing how the owner made it a point to stress that "attendees" pay nothing and basically take up space. Moving on. 7th, the cost per kid in the birthday party is $13 each. That is a NON REFUNDABLE charge for 1 piece of pizza, 3 supplied helium balloons, 1 non-refillable beverage, rental skates (whether they need them or not) 1 napkin and one plate. COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY. 8th, DO NOT bother ordering food/beverages for the adults. The pizza is disgusting. The cheese looked and tasted like fondu. $15 for a large pizza that wasn't even worth the digestion. Then you ask for a pitcher of pop/beverage. NOPE, pitchers are NOT allowed in the party table areas. They supply you with 5 cups of pop as a substitute, yet for the same price as a pitcher. So 2 pitchers (10 cups) of pop and 3 pizzas will cost you $60. WASTE!!

DO NOT WASTE your money here for a birthday celebration. I WILL NEVER RECOMMEND NOR ATTEND EVER AGAIN, unless new management takes it over

Terrible business. Staff/Management is very un professional. The staff does not cater to their employees. The staff is often caught using vulgar language towards other customers and employees during hours of operation. Been a skater for 2 years here now, professional. Would not recommend.

I attended a "matinee" session...

I attended a "matinee" session as they called them at Riverside arena and must say I was not very impressed with anything about it. I attended a few skate nights in the past a few years ago and had a much better experience. I am not sure if there has been a change in management or ownership since the 3 or 4 years ago but there is something very different about this experience. First off they were playing some rather innapropriate music and the punk kid they called a dj was less than courteous with playing ANY requests as we watching him deal with customers he was rather rude with. The skate guards were seldom found on the skating floor and usually socializing elsewhere. I think there was some very young punk in charge but otherwise none to be found. Then to top it all off at the end of the skate as we were exiting we overheard a man proffessing himself the owner screaming at a customer who had a complaint he brought to his attention. I will NOT be recommending this place to anyone in the future. Very nicely maintaned facility but very poorly ran.

Best rink and skating floor in...

Best rink and skating floor in Michigan by far. It lacks the cheese factor that Bonaventure has always had. Very clean, professional staff. Great for kids and adults.
