Without dedicated bonding time, family members grow resentful of one another’s bad habits, such as cheating at Monopoly and warming socks in the toaster. Preserve familial unity with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get an ice-skating outing for two at The Magic Season Ice Arena brought to you by Bank of America (a $20 value). The outing includes:
- Two admissions into the arena (a $10 value each).
- Two skate rentals (value included in admission).<p>
Magic Season’s annual open-air ice-skating arena invites families and friends to glide freely beneath wintery decorations, which hang from above. Upon arriving, guests slide into a pair of rental skates before pirouetting onto the glacial stage. As the venue’s speakers dispatch popular tunes and fiery critiques from international figure-skating judges, duos can coast, careen, and triple-Lutz their way around the rink. New to Magic Season this year, Christmas-day skating infuses outings with an extra dose of holiday spirit, and extended hours on select days afford late skaters the chance to enjoy the frozen landscape until 11 p.m. Although not included with today’s Groupon, food concessions heated by Santa’s extra coals refuel diminishing reserves with hearty meals, snacks, and belly-warming beverages such as hot chocolate and cider.
The Bellevue Magic Season Ice Arena
The Bellevue Magic Season Ice Arena presented by Bank of America and Alaska Airlines Visa Signature card captures a little holiday magic beneath it's peaked pavilion roof. Garland, wreaths, and ribbon hang from above, while the open fourth wall leaves the arena open to sunlight, fresh air, and marauding caribou. The rink stays open come rain or shine, with staff members always ready to welcome visitors and supply them with rented skates. They also provide an ongoing holiday soundtrack, with music from STAR 101.5. Should skaters feel the need to refuel, a concession stand provides hot beverages, cups of noodles, and bagels and cream cheese in exchange for cash only, or concrete proof that yetis exist.
