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. Give ice its just desserts with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a punch-card good for five skate and helmet rentals, five public skate passes, and $10 worth of grill fare (a $65 total value) at Canlan Ice Sports Burnaby 8 Rinks in Burnaby.
The Canlan Ice Sports Burnaby 8 Rinks are a massive sports-entertainment complex boasting six NHL-sized rinks and one dedicated figure-skating rink. Slip on a pair of sharp rental skates and take a spin on the elite ice that has hosted the 2008 World Broomball Championships, the 2009 World Police Fire Games, the Level 6 mini-boss, and a number of other frosty tests of sporting skill. The complex also contains a full-service restaurant, the Thirsty Penguin Grillhouse, whose menu includes scrumptious post-rink snacks such as nine flavours of juicy wings ($8.99) and eight varieties of hearty burgers ($7.99–$9.99). Bring along up to four friends for an icy book-club meeting or space out your five rentals over several visits.
- This ice rink claims to be the largest in the world. It offers NHL caliber training facilities, the Penalty Box Sports Bar, a sports store for equipment, extensive tournament packages and year-round family fun. – The Travel Channel
