WB’s Holiday on Ice is one of my personal favorite things to do during the holidays. I have already have had the chance to go this year, and it was pretty great, minus a few falls. It is located at the the Green Uptown right across from the Convention center; which means direct LYNX access. Don’t worry if you need skates, they have skate rentals there, but they only have hockey skates though. You can also get a season pass for $45 that include skate rentals, or $35 if you have your own. Oh yea remember to bring cash they don’t take debit.
When I went a couple weeks ago there were quite a few people, and the employees there said it would only get busier. There was a handbell choir, and a surprise solo from a trumpet player from his townhouse next to the skating rink. It all really put me into the holiday spirit, and something you do not want to miss. Also you can hit up Fuel Pizza after you are done skating because it is only a few steps away. Skating + Fuel Pizza = Awesome Night!
