Ice On The Landing Opens Nov. 17 In The Choo Choo Gardens

Tuesday, November 7, 2017

Chattanooga Presents will partner with presenting sponsor Volkswagen Chattanooga to open the ice skating season at Ice on the Landing on Friday, Nov. 17, at the Choo Choo Gardens. This 140’ x 40’ open-air skating rink will offer the fun and nostalgia of outdoor ice skating surrounded by gas lanterns, fountains and holiday grandeur at the Southside’s iconic landmark, said officials. 

The rink will open at 6 p.m. on Nov. 17, and will include a live performance by organist Buddy Shirk from 6-7 p.m., playing holiday music. Ice on the Landing will be open every day for a nine-week season, closing on Jan. 21, 2018.  

Weekly promotions throughout the season will range from Family Night, Student Night, Charity Night, 80s Night, Pajama Night, Tacky Christmas Sweater Night and gingerbread decorating opportunities. 

Ticket pricing will remain at $10 for an adult ticket, and $8 for skaters aged 12 and under. This includes skate rentals and a two-hour skate session. 

The rink continues to be locally managed and operated through professional event producer, Chattanooga Presents. According to Carla Pritchard, Chattanooga Presents owner, “We love being part of the entertainment district in the Southside. It would be hard to imagine a more picture-perfect setting than the beautiful gardens in the Choo Choo, and we feel like this location will, more than ever, offer a lot of amenities for our guests such as convenient parking, shuttle service, indoor restrooms and area restaurants.” 

Rink-side vending will include hot chocolate, soft drinks and water, along with Nutella crepes and ham and cheese crepes from Adelle’s Creperie. 

Birthday skating parties will continue to be offered, with pizza and cupcakes being served in Choo Choo’s side lobby. Individual season passes will continue to be offered for $100 and family season passes for $200, as well as gift cards for the rink. In addition, Ice on the Landing will offer a Basic Skills skating course each Saturday and Monday morning prior to opening hours. New this year, Ice on the Landing will be offering free hot chocolate to every skater who comes to skate in an Ice on the Landing T-shirt. 

Ice on the Landing presented by Volkswagen Chattanooga is also made possible through sponsorships from Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union, Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, Warren & Griffin, Maven Group LLC, Real Estate Partners, and Webb Family Orthodontics.
