Five days a week, the Greenbrier Family Skating rink welcomes families for a variety of themed skating sessions. Fans of good old-fashioned open skate can drop by on Sunday afternoons or on Saturdays during morning, evening, or two different afternoon sessions, lacing up their own skates or a pair rented from the rink. Wednesday nights are when the facilities come alive for families and on Thursday nights, skaters spin to Christian music. On both mid-week days, guests feast upon unlimited pizza. Friday nights usher in an open skate from 6 to 10 p.m. with teens welcome, while an adults-only skate keeps kids at heart rolling until 2:30 a.m. The rink closes its doors to the public on Sundays and Tuesdays in order to accommodate parties or those who prefer to do the electric slide in private.

A row of flags hangs in solidarity from the rafters above an indoor ice rink, uniting Canada, the USA, and Sweden in the one passion that they all have in common: hockey. Iceland of Hampton Roads fosters this love of icy sports in skaters of all ages and experience levels via youth hockey leagues, synchronized skating classes, and lessons, in which instructors introduce students as young as age 3 to their reflections in the ice. Adults compete in 10- or 20-game seasons in hockey leagues utilizing USA Hockey rules?and kids' hockey leagues consist of games, practices, power skating, and skills. During synchronized skating classes, teams of 8 to 20 skaters choreograph complex skating formations, such as the parallel pinwheel?in which lines of skaters rotate in unison?or the flying V?which they use to head south for the winter.

Ice skaters of all stripes can find a home at Hampton Roads IcePlex. For budding figure skaters, the instructors offer lessons at 10 different levels.

Hockey players can also improve their skills at the complex?instructors lead leagues and workshops, which eschew figure skating's acrobatics and emphasize skating with speed and control. Even toddlers have a place at the rink?kids as young as 4 can take intro lessons that cover fundamentals such as falling safely. And those who want to just skate for fun can lace up rental blades during public skate sessions.

Skate blades cut through the frozen surface, churning up flecks of ice at Richmond Ice Zone, a rink that hosts a slate of ice activities, including youth and adult hockey leagues, as well as figure-skating and beginner-skating lessons. The rink also opens its doors for skaters of all stripes to practice basic turns, graceful pirouettes, and simple quadruple axels into round-off back handsprings during public-skate sessions. Patrons can duck off the ice for bottomless popcorn during birthday parties, which allow guests to toast festive occasions from party tables.

Like Superman's secret North Pole fortress, SkateNation Plus brings the excitement with lasers, arcade games, and 17,000 square feet of glassy ice worth gliding upon. Its regulation NHL–size rink serves as a venue for public skating sessions, in addition to figure-skating lessons, hockey games, and ice-dancing performances. More than 40 games in its onsite arcade whir with a flurry of tickets, and a full spectrum of prizes awaits quick-handed winners at the redemption counter. During laser-tag sessions, the Lasertron computer spontaneously upgrades players with such power-ups as "energizer" or "force field," which protects against enemy blasts more effectively than a lead vest or full-length mirror.
