Skate Waivers
Save time at the rink, and sign your waiver online now! All ice skaters are required to sign a waiver before stepping onto the ice skating rink.
Children under 18 will need a parent’s or guardian’s signature on their waiver. Parents/guardians can fill out the waiver online ahead of time if they will not be accompanying their child.


The rink capacity is 140 ice skaters at one time. If the rink is at capacity, the next skater will need to wait for a current skater to exit. The rink is 50′ x 70′ and the ice is 3 inches thick.

Rink Rules

  • No cameras are allowed on the ice. Skaters need to keep moving for safety reasons, and photography/videography often causes people to stop moving, resulting in crashes on the ice.
  • All skaters must skate in the same direction.
  • For their safety, parents may not hold or carry kids on the ice.
  • No games are to be played on the ice, such as tag.
  • No food or drinks allowed on the ice.
  • Skaters will not be allowed to do spins and tricks during busy skate times. If you would like to practice spins, please come during the weekday skate sessions, when we anticipate smaller crowds.

The rink is inside a heated tent, to provide skaters shelter from the weather. Ice skating will not be impacted by rain; however, if there are high winds or other unsafe conditions, we may have to close early or cancel a session. We will post any schedule changes here on our website and on Facebook.
