The winter blues settle in when people get sick of staying indoors, watching the same reruns, and knitting tiny mittens for their house centipedes. Get back to nature and out of that teeming lair of insects with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get an skating outing at Splash! Synthetic Ice Skating (a $17 value). Check the center’s schedule for rink hours. The outing includes the following:
- An all-session pass on a synthetic-ice rink
- A skate rental
- A coffee or hot chocolate
Splash! Synthetic Ice Skating nestles its eco-friendly synthetic rink amid 18 verdant acres of pirate-themed water-park facilities. Made of interlocking plastic panels, the rink, like a snowman built from Legos, entertains kids and resists melting regardless of temperature or SpaghettiOs spills. Tykes can strap on rental skates and traverse the petite arena’s lubricated surface for as long as eight hours, pulling up at the sidelines to replenish energy and warm bellies with coffee or hot chocolate. During special events on December 10 and December 20, kids reel around the rink with renowned philanthropist Santa Claus, most famous for his work genetically engineering luminous reindeer noses.
