Ice is nothing more than water that won't let people swim in it. Such stubbornness deserves comeuppance in the form of sharp metallic blades that merrily crisscross to and fro across the frozen surface. Punish the unswimmable with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get public skating admission and skate rentals for four at Bakersfield Ice Sports Center (up to a $44 value).

Bakersfield Ice Sports Center offers slick-footed skaters an opportunity to beat the heat in a cool environment. Four guests of any ages and skill levels freely traverse the ice rink in their choice of rented skates, elegant figure skates, or a pair of hockey's blade-bottomed cleats. Uber-novices or those recovering from injury can borrow ice walkers for help balancing on the slippery stuff, or they can vocally command a team of human mushers to shimmy them around the rink. The Center's experienced staff assists skaters with equipment queries, including rock-bottom basics such as how to securely lace-up ice skates and offers off-balance visitors a hand up after taking a tumble. Bakersfield Ice Sports Center suggests its guests prepare for the rink's refreshingly cool temperature by dressing warmly in long pants and a coat or by smuggling a family of toasty-warm chinchillas under their sweaters.

SJCH Ice Center of Bakersfield

During public skate sessions at SJCH Ice Center of Bakersfield, a SMG managed facility, staffers give experienced skaters a wide berth, but stay on hand to assist novices with the basics, including lacing up their skates and getting back up after taking a tumble on the ice.

Instruction continues at the skating school, where students of all levels and ages can enhance their skating skills during private lessons or 12-person classes with 12 free public skating sessions and progress reports after their first month. The climate-controlled center—always kept at below 60 degrees—also hosts 14-week youth hockey seasons and three divisions of adult hockey league, which accommodate recreational to top-tier players.

Along with action on the rink, SJCH Ice Center of Bakersfield keeps its pro shop stocked with figure skating and hockey apparel. The in-house technicians can spruce up skates with repair and sharpening services. After hockey games or skating practice, guests can reenergize with pizza, popcorn, and hot chocolate from the Slap Shot snack bar, which entertains visitors with video games such as Super Mario Goes Ice Fishing.
