Skating Details



The rink capacity is 140 ice skaters at one time. If the rink is at capacity, the next skater will need to wait for a current skater to exit. The rink is 50′ x 70′ and the ice is 3 inches thick.


Rink Rules

  • No cameras are allowed on the ice. Skaters need to keep moving for safety reasons, and photography/videography often causes people to stop moving, resulting in crashes on the ice.
  • All skaters must skate in the same direction.
  • For their safety, parents may not hold or carry kids on the ice.
  • No games are to be played on the ice, such as tag.
  • No food or drinks allowed on the ice.
  • Skaters will not be allowed to do spins and tricks during busy skate times. If you would like to practice spins, please come during the weekday skate sessions, when we anticipate smaller crowds.


Skates & Other Rentals

  • Bobbies (the orange seal in the photo) – Available for rent for $6, and can help small children and adults skate.
  • Helmets – There will be a limited number of helmets available for use, free of charge. You are also welcome to bring your own helmets.
  • Skate Sizes 
    • Largest skates are a men’s size 15
    • Smallest skates are a child’s size 8
    • Double-runner skates are available, which go over a child’s shoe, and are great options for young children on bobbies (as shown in photo above).
    • Figure skates and hockey skates are both available, in a variety of sizes.


There will be no lockers on-site. Please leave your valuables at home, or have a friend or family member watch them while you are on the ice. 



The rink is inside a heated tent, to provide skaters shelter from the weather. Ice skating will not be impacted by rain; however, if there are high winds or other unsafe conditions, we may have to close early or cancel a session. We will post any schedule changes here on our website and on Facebook.
