Ice is nothing more than water that won’t let people swim in it. Teach stubborn liquid a lesson with today’s Groupon: for $4, you get an ice-skating package at Indiana/World Skating Academy (up to an $8 total value). The package includes:
- One admission to public skate (up to a $5 value).
- One skate rental (a $3 value).<p>
At Indiana/World Skating Academy, skaters glissade across the frozen flatlands of a dual-rink facility during daily public skate sessions, which are available year-round. After lacing up a pair of rented skates, athletes of all ages can coast across the rink’s slick icescape, performing figure eights or scrawling cursive petitions for the zamboni’s job. Snacks are available for purchase at the rink-side deli to refuel skaters who become depleted after traversing the same frosted floors that are used to train champion figure skaters, hockey players, and Special Olympics athletes. The facility’s coin-operated lockers keep valuables and Wayne Gretzky bobbleheads safe as skaters perfect their moves.
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.
