Before zambonis, hockey rinks achieved smoothness by intermittently mopping the ice and forcing every skater to participate in a belly-sliding competition. Enjoy frostbite-free smoothness with today’s Groupon: for $35, you get a 10-session public-skating card at Howell Ice World in Farmingdale (a $70 value).
Howell Ice World fosters frozen gliding with hockey leagues, figure skating, instruction, and public-skate sessions. A 10-session public-skate card grants blade-footed customers skating access during allocated community times. Ice skates ($4) and glue-on hockey beards are available to rent, and bare stomachs can find sustenance at the on-site Subway store. This frozen oasis serves up pizza, hot dogs, and nachos in addition to their typical sandwich fare (this Groupon is not valid for food or drink). Howell Ice World maintains green facilities by employing electric-powered, zero-emission zambonis to resurface the ice, rather than incompetent snowmen who consistently litter the rink with corncob pipes and carrots.
