At Centennial Sportsplex, groups of laced-up gliders soar across a 200'x85' rink during public skating sessions. After strapping on chartered hockey or ice skates over thin socks, guests arc in gentle figure eights, practice salchow jumps, and carve complex polyhedrons into the smooth, icy surface. Snacks from the concession stand (available for purchase) quell seismic tummy grumbles mustered up after speed skating across the rink's frozen tundra. Visitors can store their worldly possessions in coin lockers or tote along their own padlocks to take advantage of complimentary lockers. Centennial Sportsplex recommends wearing a jacket or sweater in the rink, which at times feels as chilly as the snub of a popular snowman.
Live musical acts hit the stage every night at Music City Bar & Grill, compelling feet to move and hips to request an encore. Holiday lights twinkle and guide waitstaff to tables where patrons order from a menu of hearty bar fare, which includes Angus-beef burgers, three-meat pizzas, and salads topped with grilled steak or chicken. At the pool tables, balls click together in time to the music, and outdoor seating gives people the chance to serenade the stars using voices normally reserved for sad lightbulbs.
A comprehensive guide to attractions and things to do.
