I went twice: once on Sunday with friends and then on Monday with my kids because it was so amazing.
Check to make sure there there is no or minimal snow between now and your trip.
On Sunday we started skating at 10am: the ice was still cool and firm on the the surface: felt 80% like a real rink, as you can see from the videos.
On Monday we did not start skating until 1:30pm, when the sun was blazing (around 11 degrees): skating was possible, but there were quite a few crunchy/sticky spots on the surface that impeded consistently smooth gliding.
