Safety protocols include increased sanitation and contactless ticket buying. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists outdoor activity as a less risky way of gathering. With that in mind, the following safety procedures and protocols will be followed to further minimize the risk associated with COVID-19:
Tickets for a specific time must be purchased in advance online to ensure contactless ticketing and to minimize overcrowding. Tickets on sale beginning November 5.
Skaters will be required to sign a waiver online after purchasing tickets. The E-tickets will not be sent until the waiver is completed.
All skaters must have a pre-purchased ticket to enter the venue. (Skating guests under the age of 12 may have one parent or guardian accompany them. This person will be asked to stay in a public viewing area while the minor skates.)
Expanded seating areas provide social distancing while changing shoes and skates.
Hand sanitizer will be available for guests. Equipment and touchpoints in the facility will be thoroughly sanitized at regularly scheduled intervals.
Ice rink staff procedures have been revised to allow for social distancing and monitoring.
