Once opened, Flight on Ice will feature a full-size 60’x100 ‘outdoor ice rink as its centerpiece, surrounded by food, drink, shopping and ambiance. Ideal for aficionados and beginners alike, ice skating is a classic winter delight. Flight on Ice will offer skate rentals to make it easier for customers.

In addition to ice skating, visitors can warm up in the heated hospitality tent, perfect for relaxing with friends and family after a skate session. In addition to food and drink, customers can search for merchandise and shopping, winter and holiday vibes, and holiday music to keep them in the holiday spirit.

During the duration of the pop-up, look for special events and programming for Christmas Week, Spring Break, New Years Eve, Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day, and President’s Week.
