At Castle Ice Arena, gleeful blade runners glide and twirl across an expansive ice-rink tundra. Like time-crunched chefs after a butter spill, skaters traverse slippery terrain with zest during public-skating sessions, held seven days a week. Footworkers-in-progress can enroll in learn-to-skate lessons, during which graceful toe tutors reveal spin secrets to children and adults. Today's deal is valid for instruction in levels 1–8, so beginners can master basic swizzling and hopping and more advanced skaters can learn backward crossovers and faux-humble medal acceptance. After 30 minutes of on-ice instruction, students are welcome to hone their newly acquired skills during postlesson practice time.
Birthday boys and girls can cap off their latest trips around the sun in style with a Castle Ice Arena party package. Up to 10 revelers grab their free skate rentals and hit the ice for the duration of the day's public-skating session (additional guests $7/person). During the hour of party-room time, honorees can open presents and slap out the candles among balloons and festive decorations. Guests also get to tear into complimentary goodie bags and walk away with a free skate-rental coupon for their next icy venture.
