I was on the Mariner OTS a year ago. They set aside some time during the late mornings and early afternoons on days when there is no ice show scheduled for passengers to skate. They allow 50 skaters at a time on the ice for a 1/2 hour time slot. Everytime I went to the ice rink, there were 50 on the ice, and around 100 more waiting for their turn, so it was very busy.
They did set aside a few ice slots for what they called "Advanced Skaters" to use the ice, but you had to have your own skates, you were not allowed to use their rental skates for that time.
