Enjoy downtown’s favorite family-friendly destination from 10am to 10pm, Monday through Friday, and on weekends from 11am to 10pm. Entrance fees are $7 for adults and $4 for children (aged 12 and under), with an extra $5 fee for skate rentals.

If you’re a regular skater, consider buying a season pass! For $90, choose from a weekday lunch special (giving you access from 12-2pm) or an after-work special (from 4-6pm). Full adult passes cost $150.

For those who need extra practice, the rink offers skating lessons on Saturday mornings. Come to the open house on November 30th from 9:30 to 10:30am for free intro lessons, games, and a discount for a session sign-up, beginning December 7th!
