Ice Skating is Returning!
We’re so excited to share our holiday tradition of ice skating at the resort is returning November 11-January 15th!
That’s right! A 3,200 square foot portion of our outdoor wave pool will once again be converted into a festive, real ice skating rink, where hotel guests and the public can have fun together. Music, holidays lights and a snack area serving up hot chocolate and more will add to the fun atmosphere.
For the absolute best deal that includes everyone in your party for the duration of your stay be sure to book our Skating Package- Code: ICESKATE at the time of booking. Or, add it on per person per day for only $10.99 at the time of booking. Upon arrival at the resort, guests will be able to purchase admissions for $13.99 per person per day plus tax. The general public can purchase admissions at the rink for $18.99 plus tax including skates. Soaky Mountain Season Pass Holders can skate for $10.99.
The rink will be open from 10 am to 10:30 pm Saturday – Sunday, Thanksgiving week (November 21-25) and Christmas break (December 19-30); and 4 pm to 10:30 pm Monday- Friday.
