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 $14, you get two admissions, two skate rentals, two medium sodas, and two small popcorns at The Ice Factory of Central Florida located in Kissimmee (a $30 value).
The Ice Factory allows blade-runners to glide around a 750-seat crystal cavern with both NHL-sized (200’x85’) and studio-sized (85’x45’) rinks, the latter loaded with all of the amenities of a full-size arena, such as goal creases, a red line, a face-off circle, a Van Gogh portrait of Wayne Gretzky suspended in mid-air, and face-off dots at center ice. Public-skate sessions, which vary by day and rink, give novice shoe-swordsmen a chance to showcase their skating savvy. Strap on a set of sneaker scythes and tear up the rink while filling up on soda and popcorn from the concession counter. After their icy jaunt, skaters can hunker down at the Rink Side Bar & Lounge for a pint of beer or glass of wine as they watch the big game on one of the bar's flat screens.
Groupons are not valid during the Teen Skate from 7:00 p.m.–11:00 p.m. on Friday.

The Ice Factory of Central Florida
A snowball’s throw away from the Disney World and Universal Studio theme parks, The Ice Factory of Central Florida extends the season of winter sports to a year-round festival of open-skate sessions and pickup, adult or youth-league hockey matches. During public-skate hours, patrons lace up hockey or figure skates before hitting the NHL- and studio-size rinks to learn the ropes or gracefully carve the name of their favorite zamboni driver into the ice. After a fun-filled workout on the rink, kids can pass the time at the pool table or ring in birthdays with sodas, pizzas, and bouquets of balloons.
Novice skaters of all ages can master the skills and techniques of icemanship with beginners’ lessons or mock nature’s clearly defined seasons with ice-skating summer camps.
