I am the manager cjeggers mentioned in his note above dated 4/22/2012. I had a friend tell me about this posting just recently, so I decided to take a look and see what was posted. To my surprise the words in the statement above was twisted around. I have skated for years and currently skate with a traveling jam team. We visit rinks all around northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. This being said, I've experienced a wide variety of rinks of different size and flooring. This don't by far make me an expert on floor upkeep or condition. I do however realize when I skate at different rinks I pick up the floor coating on my wheels which can make my skating ability seem slippery. As for the condition of the floor at Skateland, I told the visitor our floor could use repairs but it was not top priority "at that time". Obviously some people do not know how expensive the repair work is for a skating floor. Also, check the date of complaint. Spring is not the time for floor repairs, this is when attendance begin to drop and rink income is low. 0 Heart

We have not been satisfied with RPS205, but I will say Brookview was a decent school and my child got a good education there. Eisenhower was a nightmare, so we transferred out. I had only a few complaints during grades k-5 at Brookview and other parents expressed the same before I enrolled my son there. It's safe, has good teachers, and the supportive PTO provides a good community.
This is a wonderful place to take your kids and enjoy family time together that is fun and a good environment. Lots of other things to do besides skating also. Only reason 4 stars is that the price can be a little high for a family of 5 to afford to do as much as we would like.
