Put Your Party Plans on Ice:


COOL SKATING FUN FOR EVERYONE!

Ice Den Public Skating is an activity that combines fitness and fun for skaters of all ages and abilities.  With public skate sessions held each weekend, as well as special event sessions throughout the year and our annual Holiday Skates, there is always time to lace up your skates and hit the ice!

  • Public Skate Sessions are 2-hours in length unless otherwise noted.
  • Please review the Public Skate calendar for upcoming sessions.

Below please find additional information to help you plan and prepare for an Ice Den Public Skate:

ADMISSION
Public skate session admissions are purchased at the Administration Desk located inside the Ice Den lobby. The passes are adhesive stickers that state the specific date/time of each session.  Similar to ski lift tickets, the passes can be directly applied to clothing, however we advise you to NOT apply directly to leather, suede or other sensitive materials.  Metal ‘ticket wickets’ are available at the Administration Desk and can be used to affix the pass to a jacket zipper or belt loop.  Each skater must have a pass for the current session and it must be worm and visible at all time during the session.

Please Note:
The average temperature inside the rink is 56 degrees. The Ice Den encourages skaters and spectators to dress accordingly for warmth and safety. Helmets, socks, mitts/gloves and other equipment is recommended. Hockey sticks and pucks will not be permitted on the ice during public skating sessions.

RENTAL SKATES

Over 800 pairs of ice hockey and figure skates are available to rent for your skating pleasure. Skate sizes range from Toddler size 6 through Adult size 15.  Please note, due to skater volume on highly attended sessions, skate sizes are not guaranteed to be available. All skaters are encouraged to arrive early to ensure proper skate size availability. To assist with sizing, a skate sizing mat is located at the skate rental counter.


SKATE TRAINERS

To assist some of our younger and beginner skaters, the Ice Den provides a limited number of skate trainers for public skating sessions*.  The fee to rent a Skate Trainer is $3 payable at the Administration Desk.  The skater will receive a wristband to show a member of the Guest Services staff identified by bright yellow uniforms to retrieve the trainer.

Children using a trainer must be accompanied by an adult skater.

For safety reasons, only the weight of the child should be placed on the trainer. Adults should only assist the child and avoiding putting their weight on the trainer. While using the trainer, please demonstrate proper use, common sense, and courtesy to all patrons.  Misuse of a skate trainer will result in loss of privilege.

*Skate trainers are available on a first-come, first-served basis and for safety reasons are not permitted during the $5 Friday Night sessions.

PRIOR TO PUBLIC SKATING

Please remember to have your admission pass clearly visible at all times as the Guest Service Representatives will be checking for proper identification. Regardless of your skill level, there are elements of risk in ice skating. Please familiarize yourself with the posted Skater’s Responsibility Code and the language on your admission ticket. To ensure an enjoyable experience for every skater on the ice, it is important to remember to use common sense, show courtesy to others and be aware of unsafe conditions.  If at any time you need assistance, please ask one of our Guest Service Representatives identified in bright yellow uniforms.


ADVANCED SKATERS

Customer safety is a priority at the Ice Den. To ensure the public skating sessions as safe as possible for all participants, we prohibit jumps and spins during these sessions.  Advanced skaters wanting to practice jumps, spins, leg lifts and any other advanced skating techniques are encouraged to attend the 20-30 weekly freestyle skating sessions that are offered to practice these maneuvers.


CHILLY BEAN CAFÉ

Chilly Bean

The Chilly Bean Café is open during all public skating sessions and offers a wide-variety of snacks and beverages to enjoy!
