Ice Skating Season
The arrival of fall in NYC means more than changing leaves, Halloween, and all things pumpkin. It means the return of the Rink at Rockefeller Center! This Saturday, October 12, is opening day for the 2019/2020 ice skating season.
The Rink is open daily from 8:30am to midnight—see the schedule of 90-minute skate sessions here. October is a great time to beat the crowds and catch an off-peak rate.
You can also reserve for VIP admission and package deals, pairing skating with dining at Rock Center Café or The Sea Grill. For families during the holidays, there's Breakfast with Santa (beginning the end of November) and the festive combo of ice skating plus Rockettes tickets.
If you're a beginner—or would love to finally learn proper technique—consider a skating lesson. You can read about the experience here. Or, if you live to lace up your skates, season passes are available.
