Brooklyn's creative hub is encouraging New Yorkers to get their skate on this season—both ice skating and roller skating!
Industry City is opening its ice rink by Volvo Car USA at the end of Thanksgiving week on November 27 and the beloved Dreamland Roller Rink by Lola Star in December.
This year, Industry City’s ice rink in Courtyard 5/6 will be open during the winter season every Thursday-Sunday until March 1. (It will also be larger than last year's rink!) And when you're not skating on the heated outdoor rink, decorated with tons of holiday décor, you can grab a cup of hot chocolate from Frying Pan Brooklyn next door.
You can skate during the following hours:
Sundays: 10-6pmTickets are $12 per person, with skate rentals costing $10 per person. Tickets can be purchased on site at Industry City or online.
If you're feeling nostalgic for the olden days of roller skating to groovy tunes, Dreamland Roller Disco is nearby for you on the Factory Floor in Building 1 December through March.
The decision to return to Industry City was a no-brainer for Lola Star, who has had a creative space on the Industry City campus since 2012.
"So many decided to start because it’s the perfect way to stay fit, decrease stress, and have fun while social distancing,” Star said. "Right now, the world needs the experience of collective joy, so I am thrilled that Industry City has given me the opportunity to create these safe experiences of collective, roller disco joy."
Her costumed roller disco parties will be back on these days:
Adult Skate Class: every Friday & Saturday 6-7pm
Dreamland Roller Disco: Every Friday & Saturday 7-10pm
Toddler Skate Party: Every Saturday 10-11am
Kids Skate Class: Every Saturday 11-noon
Family Skate Extravaganza: Every Saturday noon-3pm
Dreamland Discoteque – Roller Disco Brunch Party: Every Sunday 1-4pm
Tickets are $12–$28 per person with skate rentals included with admission. Tickets can be purchased on site at Industry City or online.
Of course, there will be social distancing and face masks required on both rinks.
