Tucked within Kent State University’s campus, the school’s ice arena opens its doors to gliders of all ages with a full schedule of public skating opportunities. Guests can slide into a pair of rental skates and coast across the same frozen field used by the school’s hockey, broomball, and zamboni-jousting teams. After working up an appetite, skaters refuel with one of the venue’s value meals, with options such as a hot dog, cheeseburger, hamburger, grilled cheese, or chicken fingers, accompanied by a drink and either fries or a pretzel.

Alternatively, skating novices can seek the guidance of a professional with Beginner lessons. During each of the eight one-hour session, which take place once a week starting the first week of January on either Thursday evenings or Saturday mornings, students learn basic skating skills, focusing on safety, building confidence, and learning to etch trash talk into the ice. Class participants who don’t have their own skates can rent a pair for an extra $1, and all attendees are encouraged to outfit hands with mittens, gloves, or lucky foam fingers to keep digits warm.

Kent State University Ice Arena

When you look around the 150'x80' rink at Kent State University Ice Arena, you can’t help but be amazed at the variety of things going on. Throughout the week, the rink plays host to skating lessons, hockey leagues, and public skating sessions in which families and couples can spend a day zooming around. Sports players learn the intricacies of being the best hockey player around or learn a new sport in the rink’s broomball league. After hands and feet start to chill, guests can grab a snack and a hot beverage at the concessions stand, with the fireplace always crackling so guests can warm back up.

Well organized and good snack bar selections

Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy the ice arena and improve one's performance at ice skating. The Groupon was very much appreciated as during these tough economic times, I would not have been able to visit the ice arena with my family members at the regular price. It made my children think they were really doing something very special as it was something different from anything we usually can afford and have been able to do in a long while. I am hopeful you will be able to offer this again so that we can take advantage at improving at skating and when we are "back on our feet" financially, may be able to enjoy the facilities on a regular basis. We have told friends about the facility.
