Ice On The Landing Supports Toys For Tots Wednesday

Tuesday, November 23, 2021

Enjoy the fun and nostalgia of outdoor ice skating in Chattanooga at Ice on the Landing in the gardens of the iconic Chattanooga Choo Choo. This open-air holiday rink is open through Jan. 30, surrounded by restaurants and holiday grandeur at the Southside’s iconic landmark.

Toys for Tots is the beneficiary for this week’s “Giving Wednesday.” Ice on the Landing will share 20 percent of ticket sales made Wednesday between 5-9 p.m. with this local not- for-profit.

Thanksgiving, Nov. 25, hours are from 2-11 p.m. Thursday is also Family Night, when a child skates free with a paying adult from 5-9 p.m.

Black Friday hours are from 11 am.-11 p.m.

UTC Students and military personnel are always offered a $2 discount.

Ice on the Landing is owned and managed by Chattanooga Presents and is made possible by major sponsorships from Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union and Chick-fil-A, along with support from Children’s Hospital at Erlanger, Choice Homes, Crown Subaru and McKee Foods.

This outdoor open-air ice skating rink will maintain a safe and controlled admission capacity to be able to continue to offer this fun activity, even while being very mindful of everyone’s protection, said officials. Masks will be optional this year. Hand sanitizing stations, frequent cleanings of handrails and rental equipment are precautionary measures that will be followed.

The weekend skate sessions will allow for a 75-minute skate timeframe with a maximum number of 100 skaters. The length of skate sessions will be more flexible on weekdays, allowing for up to 90 minutes. Mondays will be reserved for private party rentals except during the school winter break. The full schedule and other information is posted on the website, iceonthelanding.com.

Ticket pricing is $10 for an adult ticket and $8 for a child ticket aged 12 and under, although adult admission is $12 on weekends. These prices include skate rentals (the price is the same if you bring your own skates)

Weekly promotions will keep the schedule lively with fun events throughout the season ranging from Family Night, Date Night, Charitable Wednesdays, Princess skate, Chanukah on Ice and more.

Birthday skating parties and other parties will continue to be offered, with pizza and cupcakes being served in the Choo Choo’s arcade room prior to skate time. Season passes will be available to purchase for $100, as well as gift cards for the rink.

Festive rink-side concessions will include hot chocolate and other hot and cold drinks along with a snack food menu. On weekend evenings, liqueurs can be offered with the hot drinks. Ice on the Landing merchandise, including T-shirts, sweatshirts, socks, gloves and hand warmers are also available.

Information, operating hours and activities on the rink are available at www.iceonthelanding.com.
