Water expands when it freezes, which is why roads crack in the winter, and why most belts made of ice never seem to fit right in the summer. Expand your aquatic horizons with today’s Groupon to Rocket Ice Arena in Bolingbrook. Choose between the following options:

  • For $8, you get an ice-skating outing for two (up to an $18 value).
  • For $15, you get an ice-skating outing for four (up to a $36 value).

Both outings include: * Public-skating admission * Skate rentals

Cadres of gliding ice carvers etch grooves into the glassy surface of Rocket Ice Arena’s full-size rink along to classic tunes or holiday songs. Guests can don bladed boots like a gimmicky television chef before hitting the ice for public-skate sessions, many of which double as special skating events, such as rock ‘n’ roll or country-music skate. Holiday-themed skates with Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph, Santa, and Lincoln on Presidents’ Day let kiddies caper about with beloved characters, flash-freezing the holiday spirit for storage through to summer. After the session is over, visitors can retire to Lake Placid Lodge to relax with hot drinks by the fireplace or rummage through the Internet on the free WiFi.

Rocket Ice Arena

Parent-chaperoned youngsters take their first, wobbling steps on ice skates while the hockey stars they may one day become whiz around the rink, perfecting their technique. Skaters of all skill levels practice side by side during open skates at Rocket Ice Arena. Their nonskating supporters can look on from the Lake Placid Lodge, sipping drinks from the onsite café and using the lodge’s free Wi-Fi to check an app that tells them whether their glass is half empty or half full.

Home to the Sabres Youth Hockey Club, the rink also offers instruction in icebound sports. Their hockey instructors can introduce novices to the sport or train more experienced skaters how to compete on high-resistance synthetic ice. A separate team of instructors specializes in figure skating and synchronized skating, which is the art of synchronizing your feet to go in a single direction. Youngsters can also explore the rink during skate parties, which come with an on-ice instructor, decorations, and balloons.
