If woolly mammoths had mastered the triple Lutz, they would've made it out of the Ice Age and into the Bronze Age, if not the Silver or Gold Age. Ensure your long-term survival with today's Groupon for ice-skating at the Orange County Ice Palace in Yorba Linda. Choose between two options:
- For $12, you get admission and skate rental for two (a $26 value).
- For $55, you get a 10-week skating lesson (a $120 value).
The Orange County Ice Palace allows skaters young and old to carve circles upon a frozen, friction-free indoor pond. With public skate sessions every day of the week, freelance figure skaters and unsigned hockey mercenaries can practice their craft or revel in the simple joy of skating in an ominous circle around families and children. All the while, Ice Palace’s skilled blade cobblers maximize gliding aptitude by keeping sleek feet in finely sharpened skates. Each two-person admission allows you to share the experience with a friend, date, or unpaid intern tasked with towing you around.
Alternately, neophyte ice-striders can boost confidence in navigating traction-free situations with the Palace’s all-ages skating school. For 10 weeks, students accumulate skills in half-hour blocks grouped according to age and skill level, preventing triple-axeling toddlers from spraying ice mist at their rail-clutching parents. Lesson learners also receive 10 public skate passes to perform optional class homework assignments, though skate rental is not included for lessons or these 10 public sessions and must be paid for in advance.
