Last month I had the great pleasure of staying at the TWA hotel, and let me tell you…IT IS AWESOME. I have an entire video review in the works, but it’s worth spending the night, seeing for a few hours, grabbing a drink, etc. It’s in between the JetBlue and International terminals so if you have a few hour layover – head on over and see it. Well…we just learned they’re adding an ice skating rink for the winter months.
Clearly I’m in, but here are the details. I’m flying to JFK this week and sadly will miss it, but hopefully will be back through before they close it for the season.
Hours of Operation
- 56×44 Runway Rink
- 7 days a week
Monday through Thursday from 4 PM to 9 PM
Friday from 4 PM to 10 PM
Saturday and Sunday from 10 AM to 10 PM
- $15 for adults
- $10 under 12
- skates rented for $10
Here is the break down by TWA
Lace up and speed skate over to JFK — our frozen tarmac awaits!
Freeze all plans! The TWA Hotel will open the Runway Rink — a one-of-a-kind ice skating experience — on November 30. Visitors and guests can take a spin on the tarmac around the hotel’s 1958 Lockheed Constellation Connie airplane (now a cocktail lounge) and then watch an ice skating spectacular! The custom 56-by-44-foot Runway Rink (made with good old frozen NYC tap water) will operate seven days a week through the end of February.
There’s lutz to love beyond lacing up: A snow-stopping skating show will take spectators on an Arctic expedition without leaving New York City’s tundra. The show’s theme takes inspiration from our Connie’s history: after retiring from TWA, tail number N8083H spent time as an Alaskan bush plane dropping supplies in the Prudhoe Bay!
The forecast also calls for frosty beers, Sno-Caps candy and an array of other snacks and beverages. Those looking to warm up can wrap themselves in The TWA Shop‘s cozy new winter accessories — including knit hats and scarves — which will be sold both at the rink and online.
Admission is $15; $10 for kids under 12. Ice skates can be rented for $10 (kids under 12 rent for $8). Skating aids for children are available.
