Ice is nothing more than water that won't let people swim in it. Such stubbornness deserves comeuppance in the form of sharp metallic blades that merrily criss-cross to and fro across the frozen surface. Demonstrate elemental dominance with today's Groupon: for $7, you get an ice skating wristband and skate rental for Light Up UCF at UCF Arena (up to a $12 value), located in the heart of the UCF campus.
UCF Arena invites patrons to celebrate the holiday season in Orlando's largest, most weather-defying outdoor ice rink. Ice gliders groove to the sounds of classic holiday songs and Top 40 hits, all spun by a live DJ. This package includes ice skate rental, freeing patrons from fashioning makeshift blades from stripped-down twigs or blunted butter knives. The ice skating wristband allows skaters to hit the ice from open to close, giving them ample time to see the other festive events around the area. A free holiday light show is on display for 50 straight nights, where 75,000 festive fiber-optics pulse throughout the plaza. Light Up UCF also features a free holiday film festival, inviting patrons to watch holiday classics while resting from rigorous ice hopscotch games.
