If it’s really hard for you to think about ice skating, I totally get it. Even though it’s technically fall, temperatures are still in the 90’s so it doesn’t feel like it. But, that’s not stopping the Downtown Sacramento Partnership from thinking about the downtown ice rink. In fact, they just announced that 2018’s rink will open on November 2.

And, this year it will have a new shape that will allow more people to skate at one time. Because of the Golden 1 Center, the city is expecting more traffic so they are switching from an oval to a round shape, per CBS 13.

Tickets seem a little steep if you ask me. They are between $13 and $15 for adults and $6 for children 6 and under. And there’s a lot of themed days scheduled, too.

  • 11/2 10 am: Opening Ceremony. Rink opens to the public at noon.
  • 11/3 Noon-2 pm: Princess and Superhero Day
  • 11/10 10 am-Noon: Celebrate the Art of Kindness
  • 11/11 & 11/12: Veterans Day (Active duty and retired military members skate free with valid military ID)
  • 11/14, 12/12, 1/9 11 am-Noon: Storytime at the Ice Rink
  • 11/15 6 pm-8 pm: Drag Queens on Ice
  • 11/17 6 pm-7 pm: Single in the City
  • 11/27 2 pm-9 pm: $GivingTuesday
  • 12/8 Noon-4 pm: 2nd Saturday Holiday Shoppe
  • 12/20 7 pm-9 pm: Silent Skate on Ice

Just a heads up, if you’re looking for a less busy alternative that’s a bit more affordable, check out Iceland. It opens the same day, is volunteer run, and ranges from $7-$10.
