In ice skating, as in dangling from the edge of a cliff, sometimes allowing yourself to start falling is a great excuse to hold someone's hand. Take the plunge with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $12 for an open-skate admission for two with skate rental included (up to a $24 value)
- $49 for an eight-week Learn to Skate class (a $99 value)
In eight-week Learn to Skate classes, students begin to navigate their icy environs in weekly, 30-minute sessions. Hockey and figure-skating tracks are available for ages 3 through adult, with classes for all skill levels. Each class includes access to that day's open skate, as well as five additional open-skate passes, valid during the class' eight-week cycle. Open-skate throws open the rinks to the public, letting attendees show off their stuff atop toted-along blades or professionally maintained rentals ($3/rental; included). View the class schedules for the Anaheim, Westminster, and Yorba Linda locations.
The Rinks offers both inline and ice skating for all ages and all skill levels. The Westminster and Yorba Linda centers boast NHL-size rinks, and Anaheim and Lakewood boast Olympic-size rinks. In addition, Anaheim's league-certified surface is used as the official training facility of the Anaheim Ducks. Skaters can take to the ice for classes on such blade-top pursuits as hockey, figure skating, public skating, curling, broomball, and more. For the ice-averse, The Rinks has three inline-skating centers in Corona, Huntington Beach, and Irvine which play host to youth and adult roller hockey leagues, skating clinics, public skates, and more. Open-skate sessions give aficionados the chance to take a few laps with friends and family, riding atop their own blades or donning a rental pair from the front desk. On Friday and Saturday nights, rinks morph into icy dance clubs, blasting hit music booming through the speakers and projecting music videos onto a jumbo screen. Birthday packages are also available at both locations.
