Update: The Rink is no longer in business.
Austin Steele is always getting some wild and creative ideas, he’s a starter, an entrepreneur, a community member who wants to do something for other people. His wife Sarah lovingly tells me that some of his ideas just aren’t possible, but when he mentioned an outdoor ice skating rink at Hamilton Town Center? She said, “That, let’s do THAT!”[dropshadowbox align=”right” effect=”lifted-both” width=”250px” height=”” background_color=”#ffffff” border_width=”1″ border_color=”#dddddd” ]ICE SKATING INFO

Austin spent a year in Minnesota after college and in Minnesota, everyone comes out to play in the winter, the world comes alive. In the Indianapolis area, we tend to go indoors…and Minnesota is MUCH colder in the winter than Indy. Austin remembers everyone ice skating, outside and he really wanted to have that experience available for his family, and everyone else.
The Rink will officially open on November 14th (11 am – 11 pm) during the Hamilton Town Center Holiday Fest and remain open through January. With afternoon and evening hours, you can skate in the sunshine and even try your axel jumps and backspins under the stars.
Ice skate rental is included in your 90 minutes session price and ice skates sizes start at a junior size 9 (my 3 year old wears an 8 but most 3 year olds wear a 10 from what I hear). A few pairs of tiny skates size 6/7 will be available the week after opening.
90 minutes of ice time is $12 per person and children 4 and under skate for $9. You are welcome to bring your own ice skates if you own them. We found some adorable toddler size 6/7 skates for only $30 on Amazon. The Rink will also have skate support devices for children learning to ice skate.
