Skating on a pond is dangerous, especially if the ice is thin or littered with napping babies. Upgrade to indoor-arena, baby-free ice skating with today's Groupon: for $7, you get admission ($6) and skate rental ($3) plus a $5 food and beverage voucher at Kendall Ice Arena (a combined $14 value). This Groupon is valid during the majority of the arena's daily public skating hours but may not be used after 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
Take a few carving strides across the frozen glass at Kendall Ice Arena, where skaters of all ages and skill levels are welcome to lace up their skates and ground-soar around two rinks. As you stride, feel free to grasp a proximate friend, family member, or scarf-wrapped stranger for a few laid-back laps. When your legs or stomach usher you off the ice, stiffen your ankles and waddle gracefully toward some snacks and thirst quenchers with your $5 voucher in hand.
Whether you're revisiting an old pastime or enjoying a child's first steps out on the frozen pond, be sure to pack some sturdy socks and a reliable camera, or leave the fancy devices behind and allow your mind, the analog digital camera, to snap some memories.
Nine Yelpers give the Kendall Ice Arena an average of three stars:
- You get a sense of accomplishment when you make it around the rink a few times without falling. – Michelle C., Yelp
- This is very reminiscent (to me) of the roller skating rinks in the Midwest where I grew up. In all, it was a nice time for our daughter, and we are surely coming back. – Carla L., Yelp
Kendall Ice Arena
During public sessions inside the massive Kendall Ice Arena, the rink fills up with families, first dates, and other glide-enthusiasts. There, skaters of all skill levels glide side-by-side—sometimes enhanced by music from live DJs—after which they can refuel by grabbing refreshments at the snack bar. And during camps, skaters from across the blade-running spectrum can hone their skills in programs for hockey players, figure skaters, and beginners just finding their ice legs.
