The Rink at Rockefeller Center is Open

Posted October 11, 2019

We know, we know. The leaves have really just started to change. We've barely turned off our air conditioner and haven't even given a thought to digging out our winter clothes. And that first taste of pumpkin-spiced-whatever is still fresh on our tongue.

So why talk about ice skating now?

The Rink at Rockefeller center opens tomorrow (October 12) for the season. So this month and next is the time to take advantage of the short lines! Believe me, once we get closer to Thanksgiving, it will be a different story.

You need to go skating now, people; you can thank us later.

So here are the deets: the rink is open from 8:30 am to 12:00 am. Sessions are in hour and a half increments. Adult general admission is $25, but goes up to $28 for the holiday season, and $33 for peak holiday. (See? We're already saving you money.) Kids under 11 and seniors always pay $11, and skate rental is $13. General admission is on a first come, first served basis, but you can reserve a time with a fancy-dancy VIP admission. The catch: it costs 60 bucks.

Our advice is to visit in the fall and skate right in.

One cool thing that you may not know about--we didn't--are the private 30-minute skating lessons available. Private and semi-private instruction is available for $50 per person. What a cool setting to master a figure-eight.

Hope everyone has a great weekend...and get thee to New York City to skate!
