Blazers Ice Centre, home of the Oklahoma University Sooners, lets groups embark on fun, frosty adventures during daily public-skate hours, in hockey leagues, and through figure-skating lessons. Twirling across the frozen indoor pond marries exercise with entertainment and gives budding Dorothy Hamills and Wayne Gretzkys a chance to practice camel spins, fast breaks, and basic stopping techniques, such as running into a wall. During breaks from the rink, guests can feast on chicken nuggets, fries, or other snacks, sip on hot chocolate or other beverages, or peruse the well-stocked pro shop for figure-skating or hockey gear.
A team of skilled instructors molds slip 'n' sliders of all ages into graceful ice traversers during group and private lessons. The skate mavens impart basics of icemanship, such as distinguishing between a triple Lutz, a double salchow, or a single angry Zamboni.
At Arctic Edge Ice Arena, skaters of all ages learn the principles of figure skating and hockey under the direction of a coaching staff whose collective experience includes training US Figure Skating competitors and contributing choreography to the 2002 Winter Olympics. Between lessons, the arena opens for public skating so guests can practice their technique or etch their self-portraits into the ice. In addition to lessons and open skating, Arctic Edge hosts several youth and adult skating clubs, such as the Oklahoma Curling Club. The facility encompasses a concession stand and arcade, as well as a pro shop that serves both recreational and competitive skaters.
At Star Skate, you might find skaters trailing balloon bouquets or waving glow sticks as they circulate smoothly around the rink. These—along with providing dishes of ice cream, hot dogs, and soda—are a few of the ways the staff helps party guests celebrate birthdays and other events. But whether it’s someone’s birthday or not, guests can always celebrate the joy of frictionless frolicking by outfitting their feet with roller, inline, or speed skates at any of Star Skate’s four locations.
Family owned and operated, Southwestern and Skate Moore offer families and friends a safe place to whirl and race around the rink. Your next game of crack the whip awaits a snack bar, a full selection of high-quality skates and wheels, and bumper skating at Southwestern Skate Center. The Skate Moore location also includes a snack bar with popular fare (pizza, candy, beverages), a Pro Shop, and a well-groomed black-lit glow floor. Both locations house fun for kids, parties, and families alike.
Skate Galaxy's outdoor sign is shaped like an orb surrounded by a ring of stars, proving that red planets are not just the birthplace of eccentric pop stars. Inside, skaters glide over a glossy white floor as neon lights trace patterns of planets and stars for them to follow and disco balls project glints onto the rink like twinkling comets. Even the carpet seems like a nightscape as it glows under the black light, directing eight-wheeled astronomers to the concession stand stocked with treats such as pizza, pretzels, and energy-boosting Clif Bars. All the while, air conditioning recalls the cold emptiness of space, where astronauts work tirelessly to keep the universe's thermostat at a comfy 65 million degrees below zero.
