While balmy October weather might help us forget the changing seasons, on the heels of fall holiday excitement comes the winter fun of ice skating outdoors. And that most iconic of ice skating venues, The Rink at Rockefeller Center, opens this Monday, October 8 in MidtownManhattan.
Steps from Times Square, The Rink is a classic New York City tradition whether you’re a novice, a pro, or just want to book some ice time with a special someone. As always, The Rink will be open for general admission skaters (no advance reservations are accepted) and taking reservations for its “wintertime experiences” like an engagement on ice and various VIP packages. Performances are on the calendar, too: On Monday, October 8, members of the Ice Theatre of New York and Figure Skating in Harlem kick off the season at 9 A.M.
The Rink will be open daily from 8:30 A.M. until Midnight through Easter Sunday. Standard tickets are $25 until November 3; weekend tickets are $28 before hitting the peak holiday price of $33 on November 21. Find out more here.
The Rink at Rockefeller Center is located at 5th Avenue between 49th and 50th Streets.
