If woolly mammoths had mastered the triple Lutz, they would've made it out of the Ice Age and into the Bronze Age, if not the Silver or Gold Age. Ensure your long-term survival with today's Groupon: for $3, you get one admission to public skate and one skate rental at Indiana/World Skating Academy (up to a $7.50 value).
With two NHL-size rinks, Indiana/World Skating Academy provides an arena for fun to intertwine with exercise, and a great way to get kids out of the house in the summer. Lace up with a rented pair of figure or hockey skates (a $3 value) before putting neglected leg muscles to use and burning away calories while having a blast mimicking skating champs such as Elena Dementenova, Isaac Dementenova, and the Peanuts gang. Brush up on curling techniques, triple axels, and interpretive ice dances, or enjoy a classically romantic yet exercise-filled date.
Indiana/World Skating Academy
Plopped in downtown Indianapolis across from the Indiana Convention Center, Indiana/World Skating Academy fosters skills for winter sports on a pair of NHL-size rinks. I/WSA's coaches, whose instruction has helped produce regional, national, and world-class competitors, direct the facility's programs, including learn-to-skate courses designed for skaters with varying levels of experience. In addition to skating, the facility also offers private rink rentals as well as opportunities for speed skating, broomball, and adult hockey leagues. Off the ice, the academy offers less slippery activities, such as weight training, aerobics, jazz, and ballet. A rinkside deli open during public-skating hours keeps legs primed, and an onsite pro shop keeps equipment bags stuffed with the latest gear.
