Housed beneath a luminous 12-story atrium in the Plaza of the Americas, Americas Ice Garden caters to bladed gliders with a picturesque and curvaceous rink. Impress fellow skaters by performing a successful triple spin or practice the coveted art of levitation for even smoother travels across slippery ice.
Plants and fountains surround the rink, lending it an atmosphere of pictorial tranquility, and the chromatic light play from giant glass prisms hanging in the windows creates hypnotic rainbow images on the ice. Only blocks away from the Dallas Museum of Art and the Meyserson Symphony Center, Americas Ice Garden is a prime location for a spot of frosty fun between gallivanting in galleries and whispering for an encore in the orchestra hall.
Americas Ice Garden
The frosty rink at Americas Ice Garden is always abuzz with wintry activity, hosting skaters ready to carve out figure eight8s during public hours or rehearse for impending competitions at freestyle skates. Athletes just breaking into the sport can attend skating and hockey classes, or commit to two weeks of drama and vocal exercises of saying "triple lutz" 10 times fast at ice-theater camps. The fun but demanding camps culminate in a production staged on the ice for a crowd of spectators. When thespians clear out, the rink is free to once again host parties or broomball matches.
Sunlight streams through 12 stories' worth of glass prisms, exploding into rainbows that dance on the trees, plants, and spouting fountains that fringe the well-chilled oval at its home in the heart of the Plaza of the as. The prisms are suspended in a next-door atrium, home to many shops and cultural attractions near the ice garden, including the Dallas Museum of Art.
