Rink Side Family Entertainment Center & Ice Arena features activities and amenities for visitors of all ages. The center's regulation-sized ice rink serves many purposes throughout the year. Public-skate times are offered every day, allowing guests to escape the summertime heat or reconnect with the snowman they've been hiding since winter. Additionally, the rink's staff hosts figure-skating lessons and organizes hockey leagues for adults and children seeking casual or competitive play.
In between laps around the ice, Rink Side's visitors can take advantage of the facility's other family-friendly pursuits. The 18-hole, black-lit miniature-golf course embraces a nautical theme, complete with sculptures of exotic sea creatures and spiderwebbing coral growths. Hundreds of games fill the arcade space, tempting passersby to test their hand-eye coordination or win tickets that can be redeemed for prizes. For an adrenaline-boosting experience, the entertainment center also features a laser-tag arena. As many as 20 participants can spend seven minutes dodging behind the arena's towering, neon-banded columns and tagging opponents before regrouping with friends and comparing scores. Rink Side even includes a small caf? where visitors can recharge. The facility also creates lifelong memories with family and friends through its private party and event services.
Defensive Shooting Instructors' training staff includes Special Forces members, SWAT officials, and intelligence specialists. Drawing from these backgrounds, the highly trained team teaches dozens of public courses that cover everything from pistols to shotguns to hand-to-hand combat. Rather than guiding their students through simple lessons, the instructors run drills that simulate real-world conditions and aim to create safe-yet-intense environments. For firearms training, they travel to local ranges and put shooters through repetitive drills focused on speed, accuracy, and consistency. In addition to civilian instruction, Defensive Shooting Instructors designs courses for law enforcement officers, military members, and deploying journalists. Its staff mans a gun shop.
