Holidice brings ice skating to Aiken again | Local news
For locals who want their fix of skating, Holidice is back at the Aiken County Fairgrounds for all ages.
The indoor ice skating experience is in its third year and features both traditional ice skates and roller skates. The ice rink is located inside the main exhibition building of the fairgrounds, located at 561 May Royal Drive.
Piper Davis and Syann Ortega were two of the skaters who stepped out on Tuesday night. The two said they hadn’t skated for a while, so they hoped to stay on their feet.
Davis said she heard about Holidice on social media and thought it sounded funny.
âIt’s the holiday season,â she said. “I think it’s a really good thing to go out and do.”
âThis is actually my first time (of coming to Holidice),â Ortega said. “I’m pretty excited.”
Davis said she used to go to the Augusta rink before it closed.
âEveryone was super sad so that’s a good idea,â said Davis.
For those who want to go out, Holidice will be open almost every day until January 23. The rink will be closed on Christmas Day, January 2-6, January 10-13 and January 18-20. For a detailed schedule overview or for more information, visit holidice.com.
Skaters can choose between ice skates or roller skates, each of which costs $ 10 to rent. There’s also a “super skate” option for $ 15, which includes the ability to use both types of skates.
For younger skaters, a plastic âskate aidâ can be hired to assist them on the ice.
It is also possible to rent the entire rink for private parties on days when the rink is closed to the public.
Besides skating, there are also arcade machines and two pool tables that guests can enjoy during their stay in Holidice.
