Whitewater Center Opening 23,000 Sq Ft Ice Skating Rink With “Skate-Up Bar” and “Ice Trail”


Next week, the US National Whitewater Center will be opening our region’s largest outdoor winter wonderland.

The winter attraction will be centered around a massive 23,000 square foot ice skating rink, complete with a “skate-up bar” where visitors can order hot chocolate, coffee, or beer, as well as a brand new looping ‘ice trail’.

According to a press release from the venue, “The Whitewater Center’s ice rink has grown to over 24,000 sq. ft. this year and includes four distinct skating areas, including two ice trails and two free skate zones. The new trail addition extends access further into the Upper Pond towards the pump house and provides a brand new experience for guests”, adding that there will be an on-ice Airstream serving hot and cold beverages when guests need a skate break”.  

Admission to the “Ice Skating and Lights” will start at $25 for a single activity pass with an anticipated opening date of mid-November.
