Humankind has long toiled to tame ice, drowning it in seas of cola or embedding prehistoric men within it, Trojan Horse-style, for eventual surprise ambushes millions of years later. Conquer frozen facades via feet with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get admission to a public skating session, skate rental, and tasty eats at Bakersfield Ice Sports Center (a $16.27 value).

Bakersfield Ice Sports Center offers slick-footed skaters an opportunity to beat the heat in a cool environment, featuring temperatures under 60 degrees. Instead of ham-fistedly strapping meat cleavers to their feet, visitors will shred ice with a pair of rented skates ($3), showcasing their mastery of centrifugal motion. After working up an appetite, fledgling figure skaters can refuel with a large slice of pizza ($2.79), a small soda ($1.49), and the fried dough delight that is the churro ($1.99). Bakersfield Ice Sports Center’s facility includes a fully-stocked pro shop featuring apparel, equipment, and polar-bear-repelling colognes. Additionally, a convenient schedule offers plenty of public skating sessions ($7 admission) to hone skills handy for carving romantic haikus into fresh sheets of ice.

Ice skating is a great way to stay active and healthy without using fancy exercise contraptions (bags of rocks, bags of corn chowder, etc.) Thanks to Bakersfield Ice Sports Center, you’ll put those neglected leg muscles to use and burn calories while having a blast mimicking your favorite skating champs such as Elena Dementenova, Isaac Dementenova, or Russell Dementenova.

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.
