Great product

Awesome system, if you have a big grade you will need to put up higher boards with braces for sure , the liner is strong. I put carpet scraps at the bottom and corners to prevent tearing . Also do not staple until rink is full it will rip , use small spring clamps to hold it.

I have a 20" grade in my yard and works fine but you have to be smart about it and fortify the end where it's a lot of water .

Nothing is idiot proof but this is a great system, I use 3/4 pt plywood for boards with 2x4 at the seems to hold it all nice.

This was very easy to assemble

This was very easy to assemble. The brackets worked quite well, and the DVD video that comes with it is much more helpful than a traditional set of written instructions. I'm very glad I went with this.

Dont purchase if you have more than a 5" grade unless you live in Antartica

I have only a 6" grade and have had nothing but problems. I guess if you live where its cold enough to freeze 6" of ice SOLID this would be great. Its been below freezing for over two weeks and every time we skate water leaks up from the sides and covers the ice. The ice is three inches thick and is more than enough to support our weight. The problem is that the ice is floating and when you add any weight it sinks and gets covered with water. Now we just received 4" of snow and its submerged the ice completely under water and has ruined the surface. I wish I would have thought this through before purchasing and spending the time installing this thing. Talked to others on FB and they have the same problem. Maybe here in New Hampshire doesn't get cold enough anymore.

The plastic bent out of shape and we couldn't use it for a second season

I bought NiceRink directly from the manufacturer. It was fun for the first season. We stored rink components in the garage and much to our surprise the plastic toppers warped and were unusable for the second season. We called the company and they said that they would not replace them because it was likely that we stored them improperly and the garage got too hot in the summer. The weird thing is that I live in Lake Placid. It doesn't really get hot up here. Our summers are around 74-78 degrees F (you can look it up on Google) however, I live in a slightly higher elevation that "in town" so we're consistently 3-5 degrees cooler. So I was really disappointed that for the price, we could ONLY use it for one year.

Waste of time and money!

Being from Maine, I have built many rinks out of nothing more than scrap lumber. Now that I'm in a slightly warmer climate, I thought this might be a nice thing to try. I priced out the materials to build it from scratch, but the ads made the NiceRink sound so easy. The liner is the biggest headache; and I say that after 3 of the brackets broke while I was installing them. Yes, I was hitting them where the video said to. I have a slope to my yard that NiceRink said was no problem. The deeper end never seems to thaw all the through. As the ice on the higher end melts, it flows beneath the ice and never seems to allow the deeper end to freeze. The liner has the flexibility of mylar, but is much more likely to tear. The first time I discovered this was when I was spreading it out and put a finger through it. I have had to put swim "noodles" in the corners because the ice moves and punches holes through the liner. I've had the rink set up for about a month now, but have not been able to use it because there are always new holes to chase down and repair. The first time the ice froze, the expansion pulled off every piece of tape that was near the water line and created several new holes as an added bonus. Last week one of the leaks made the ground soft and muddy and the weight of the water and ice pushed out one of the brackets, leaving a big bow in one of the boards. Even though the entire rink was not full, my kids wanted to skate on the small area that was frozen and flat. As they did, water squirted up around the edges and the ice bobbed up and down on the layer of water beneath. Not sure that we're going to get any use out of it this year. Next year I'll go to Home Depot and get some 6 mil plastic like my friend did. While I spend my time chasing holes, he's skating.

We built an ice rink for the first time this year using the Nice Rink 20*40 kit

I disagree with the negative reviews for this item. We built an ice rink for the first time this year using the Nice Rink 20*40 kit. We invested in NiceRink boards as well rather than plywood. It is working great. I was nervous about the durability of the brackets because they are plastic but was pleasantly surprised by them once they arrived. Our kit was purchased for just under $300.

Know what you are buying

The rink does not come with side boards and includes the cheap liner that only lasts one season. Next year you will spend another 150-200 bucks for another liner. Buyer beware.
