San Antonio just got cooler with the launch of what's touted as the "largest outdoor ice skating rink in Texas," and if you're looking to glide off that Thanksgiving feast, this is your spot. Opening its frosty doors last Thursday, the Ice Skating Rink by the Pearl has set up its wintry expanse at 1603 Broadway, as per San Antonio Current. With blades ready and ice gleaming, the holiday-themed adventure runs $15 a pop, skates included, guaranteeing an hour of slippery fun daily from 3 to 10 p.m. up until December 31.
According to the KSAT, for a mere $5, the venue boasts a Winter Wonderland pass that includes other attractions. You can ride the Polar Express Train or meander through Grinch Greenery, hopping only one foot at Candy Land, providing a peppermint twist to your holiday festivities without having to lace up.
The organizers are urging skating enthusiasts to snag their tickets online faster than a snowman melting in the Texas sun to avoid the dreaded sold-out blues. Skating isn't your only ticket to wintery pleasure; folks looking for a more grounded experience can also indulge in a Winter Wonderland Forest stroll or a festive ride aboard the Polar Express.
