Unlike wrapping firecrackers in mistletoe and attempting to climb the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, ice skating is a legal way to foster a holiday spirit during the summer. Recall Decembers past with today’s Groupon to ICE at The Parks located inside The Parks at Arlington Mall in Arlington. Choose between the following options:
• For $4, you get one children's admission for ages 6–12 (a $6 value) and one ice-skate rental (a $3 value; a $9 total value).
• For $5, you get one adult admission (a $7 value) and one ice-skate rental (a $3 value; a $10 total value).
ICE at The Parks battles midsummer overheating and forlorn winter pangs by hosting visitors in a well-maintained, indoor skating rink. Adults over the age of 12, children ages 6–12, or ageless phoenix skaters adjust to the ice-cream-truck-like chill before renting a pair of ankle-gripping skates. Available every day of the week, public skating affords winter sportsters the freedom to practice speed skating, backwards skating, or upside-down skating without the worry of colliding with a hockey player or accidentally tripping a delicate mascot. The chilled skating surface spans to the dimensions of a full NHL regulation-size hockey rink, allowing guests to enjoy a vivid Stanley Cup reverie at center ice.
Kids under 6 get in for free, and rentals cost $3.
ICE at The Parks
Happy shouts and gliding blades echo in the cool air during public sessions, parties, competitions, and lessons with ICE at The Parks. On the regulation-size NHL rink, guests can glide between skaters and ambitious Zambonis practicing slap shots. The rink opens out onto The Parks at Arlington, allowing pleasantly tired guests to rejuvenate among shops, restaurants, and a classic carousel. ICE at The Parks also maintains an onsite shop for sharpening skates and equipping visitors with necessities such as figure-skating dresses and puck repellent.
