Ice is nothing more than water that won't let people swim in it. Such stubbornness deserves comeuppance in the form of sharp metallic blades that merrily crisscross to and fro across the frozen surface. Etch a swirly path in adamantine agua with today's Groupon: for $50, you get admission for four to ice skating (a $50.98 value, which includes skate rental and tax), miniature golf (a $30.40 value, includes tax), and batting cages (a $10.99 value, which includes 20 pitches and tax) and $10 toward food and drink at Kent Valley Ice Centre in Kent.
Kent Valley Ice Centre, one of the largest ice entertainment facilities in the Pacific Northwest, alleviates boredom with ice-skating, batting cages, miniature golf, and a café and sports bar. Bring family, friends, or three blind, yet graceful mice to the smooth sailing ice rink. This freshly zamboni-ed surface allows visitors to jump, glide, and spin across solid water and skate rental is included with today's deal, eliminating the need to craft homemade skates out of old sneakers and dull kitchen knives.
Swingers can practice a prize-winning putt at the miniature golf course, aiming the pocked mega-marbles at the course's 18 holes while dodging a 10-foot waterfall, avoiding the creek and ponds, and practicing Arnold Palmer poses. Batting enthusiasts can find solace at the batting cages located in Russell Road Park. Open seven days a week, these five outdoor cages can whip softballs at slow and fast speeds or hurl baseball pitches at slow, medium, fast, or the velocity at which the Hulk hurls villains.
After hours at this family fun facility, guests can replenish bellies at the On the Edge Café, which stocks quenchers, including espresso, coffee, beer, and wine, plus stomach fillers such as pizza and burger baskets. Revelers can nosh on snacks out on an outdoor patio overlooking the batting cages or take a seat inside the indoor dining area, featuring a vista of the ice rink and future Disney on Ice stars.
Kent Valley Ice Centre
Despite its wintery moniker, Kent Valley Ice Centre doesn’t just thrive in the colder months. The public ice-skating site and home of the Kent Valley Hockey Association also teams with warm-weather activities, housing miniature golf and batting cages on its sprawling facilities. In addition, the family-friendly sports emporium invites guests to a full-service café and bar and a pro shop where visitors can purchase hockey equipment and ice-skating gear.
