Rockefeller Center Skating Rink in NYC is Already Opening
Well, I guess that's it - it's practically Christmas. The skating rink at Rockefeller Center in NYC is opening.
A 'soft opening' for the iconic rink is scheduled for October 12. How is this even possible? We haven't even eaten our Halloween candy yet.
The skating rink is located on Fifth Avenue, between 49th and 50th Streets. Of course, the rink is incredibly busy during peak season, marked by the arrival of the Rockefeller Christmas tree annually. So if skating at Rockefeller Center is on your bucket list, and you don't want to wait in line forever - here's your chance.
Prices are adults $25, children $15, skate rental $13 (yes, you can bring your own skates). During the holidays, the price is raised to $28. During peak season, the price to skate is $33. General admission to skate is first-come, first-serve and tickets can be purchased at The Rink's Skate House. The Rink's 2019 schedule, including pricing can be found here.
