The staff at Wings West and Wings Stadium, the icy stomping grounds of the Kalamazoo Wings, invite feet to glide across the venues’ slick surfaces four days a week. Visitors don rented lace-up blade-boots and burn calories while sliding across frozen expanses more cool and smooth than an eel playing jazz harmonica. Guests can quell lunchtime belly growls with a host of concessions (not included in today’s deal), which range from chicken fingers to pulled-pork sandwiches. A fun destination for families and an exhilarating alternative to the gym, the rinks encourage guests to trace giant ovals, practice double axels, and summon Slappy, the K-Wings’ avian mascot, with amorous duck calls.
Wings Stadium plays host to more than just board-slamming checks during the Kalamazoo Wings' home hockey games. On select days, the 8,023-seat venue opens its frozen confines to amateurs interested in all sorts of winter sports. Skaters of all ages can glide across the smooth ice during open-skating sessions, and members of the Kalamazoo Curling Club practice and face off throughout the fall and winter. On weekend nights, hockey fans can bring their own skates to a K-Wings home game and finish their night skating and checking the ice for lost incisors.
