Have you ever thought about installing an ice rink? If so, you have stumbled upon a great way to increase revenue. The ice rink industry has seen an annual percentage growth of 2.6%.

In 2019 alone, the annual revenue for the ice rink industry was 883 million dollars.

Unfortunately, traditional ice rinks are expensive to install, run, and maintain. If you are looking for an affordable alternative, look no further than KwikRink patented synthetic ice rinks.

KwikRink has been in the synthetic ice business for over 20 years. We are a family-owned and operated business. We are passonate about providing you with the most realistic experience you can get next to real ice.

Our artificial ice rinks can be a beneficial addition to your business. If you’re looking to add an extra revenue stream, consider an artificial ice rink from our synthetic ice.

Let’s go over some of the differences between real and synthetic ice.

Installation

For the installation of conventional ice, you need thousands of kilowatts of energy, thousands of gallons of water, and liters of gas. On top of that, the maintenance process of conventional ice rinks releases high levels of CO2.

To install a conventional rink, you need heavy machinery. One unfortunate side effect of all those machines and workers is the high noise pollution they inevitably bring. On top of that, installation takes about a week.

Conversely, the installation of our synthetic ice requires no heavy machinery, water, or gas. Plus, we can install your artificial ice rink in one day!

Maintenance

Artificial ice rinks are much easier to maintain than conventional ice rinks. You don’t even need a Zamboni because synthetic ice is fully lubricated and requires no topical sprays whatsoever.

For an indoor artificial ice rink, you will need to perform very little maintenance. If your arena is an outdoor one, you might need a little bit more effort to keep it in top shape.

You will need to clean your rink periodically. Good old soap and water, with a good mop, should do the trick. For a larger rink, a small floor scrubber can take the place of that Zamboni.

Simple maintenance and yet still expecting a life-span of up to a decade or more — that’s a win-win.

Growing Market

Ice skating rinks are a growing market. Let’s go over some of the most likely businesses that could benefit from the addition of an artificial ice rink.

  • Public Skating

Turn your unused space into a revenue stream. Install a KwikRink synthetic ice rink and charge admission. Any chance to draw in an untapped market is worthwhile.

  • Shopping Malls

Malls are already a destination. Families are drawn to places that have activities for everyone. Attract even more customers with an artificial ice rink.

  • Sports Facilities or Gyms

The average person craves variety in their fitness plan. No one likes to be limited to a treadmill or maybe an elliptical. Provide the types of fitness diversity your customers want with a synthetic ice rink. Offer hockey or skating themed group fitness classes.

  • Training Centers

Conventional ice rinks are expensive to install and maintain. Most training centers might not be able to afford one. Go with the next best thing and install a synthetic rink.

  • University Sports

Competition can be fierce in college sports. Give your team that much needed edge by installing a synthetic ice rink for practice and training drills.

    • Intramural

The budget for intramural sports for most students is often virtually non-existent. Synthetic rinks are a more cost-effective option. A KwikRink artificial ice rink will allow those intramural teams to play and practice their sports without breaking the bank.

    • Student Centers

Student centers are great gathering places for your student body. Students can hang out and network while working up a sweat. It is a good idea to give some variety to the activities you provide them. They will be grateful.

  • Youth Centers

If college students crave variety and excitement, that goes doubly for teenagers, it can be difficult finding ways to keep them engaged and entertained. Install a KwikRink synthetic ice rink and watch the smiles light up their faces.

  • Skating Clubs

With KwikRink’s patented technology providing you with over 90% of the glide of real ice, our synthetic rinks are a great way to add some extra practice space. Turn any wasted or unused space into more rink. It’s a win-win!

  • Hockey Clubs

Hockey clubs can also benefit from a KwikRink synthetic ice rink. Our rinks are great for strength training as it takes just a little bit more effort to glide and turn. Your players will notice the boost in power and strength from working out on synthetic ice.

  • Summer Camp

Without synthetic ice, an ice rink at a summer camp would be almost impossible. Our synthetic ice can be installed and kept at any temperature. Summer camps would be an ideal candidate for artificial ice.

  • Sporting Good Stores

Are you trying to find a way to boost your revenue? Increase sales on winter sporting equipment by installing a synthetic rink that allows your customers to try before they buy.

  • Fitness Clubs

Fitness clubs are often smaller than traditional gyms. Space constraints have made the previously unheard of idea of installing an ice rink a real option. Consider diversifying your offerings by offering a like-real ice skating experience.

  • Theatrical Programs

Theater programs are always looking for creative ways to offer the best viewing experience. Our synthetic ice rinks can be easily assembled and broken down. With KwikRink, your next winter show will be truly spectacular.

  • Community Centers

Turn your town into a winter wonderland any time of year. Offer ice skating or community hockey as just one more way to bring your community together.

  • Hotels

We think a hotel is an ideal place for one of our synthetic ice rinks. Consider turning your roof into a skate park. Make it an amenity for your guest and charge admission to the general public. Your rink will pay for itself in no time.

The popularity of various ice sports, such as hockey and figure skating, is increasing around the globe. Increasing popularity means a higher demand for practice ice space and therefore, potential mobile ice skating rink business opportunities such as:

  • Hockey training centers
  • Figure skating training centers
  • Entertainment/recreation venues

However, ice space traditionally requires just that — ice, in a single space.  Since you can’t depend on year-round temperatures to sustain ice, synthetic ice tiles are the perfect solution.

Since synthetic ice tiles are also portable, they remove the single space limitation as well, and there is your new venture — a mobile ice skating rink business.

Not only will this give you a sustainable business model all year long, but it also provides your community with a place to play and train safely. Contact KwikRink Synthetic Ice for all of your synthetic ice needs. No job is too big or too small.  Let’s take a closer look at what makes this a great business venture.

Year-Round Availability

Depending on your location, operating a traditional ice rink could prove to be cost-prohibitive due to temperature extremes. Maintaining a traditional rink requires temperatures low enough to keep the ice frozen. With a synthetic rink, however, you can set up at any temperature with no fear of melting the ice!

An additional unique benefit of having a synthetic ice rink is that you can build it nearly anywhere. No place is too hot or too cold. No place is too big or too small!  Customize your mobile ice skating rink to any setting.

You can create a large rink for many people or a smaller area for personal practice. With a synthetic ice rink, the only limit is your imagination!

Revenue Opportunities

As a business owner, you want to capitalize on all available opportunities, optimize your revenue, and be successful. Whether envisioning a mobile rink as a pop-up practice area or an entertainment venue, there are plenty of options available for you to customize a rink and generate multiple revenue streams.

The first, and most apparent, income generator is the entrance fee. Keeping your investment and maintenance costs low will allow you to set a favorable entrance fee. Acceptable entrance fees will ensure that those who are skating in your rink return again and again.

In addition to this, many skaters visiting your rink will be there for casual fun. Casual visitors means they don’t have their equipment with them, and will gladly rent from you. Not only will skates be required, but many will also consider safety equipment to be crucial as well. You can conveniently provide these for an additional fee.

A third opportunity to consider is ad space! Your potentially spacious ice rink will have plenty of room for advertising other businesses, generating yet another revenue stream.

Generating ad sales will also give you the chance to reach out to your community and make new contacts. Your business will grow, and your community will thank you for it! It’s a win-win situation.

Lastly, don’t forget about dollars generated by hospitality offerings — food and drinks! Snacks can vary from simple things such as water and chips to a burger and some fries. You could even scale up to full gourmet meals!

It is important to note that everyone coming to your mobile ice skating rink is doing so for different reasons. Providing excellent food with a fun area to eat means a positive experience, and ensures your customers will return and bring friends.

Environmental Advantages

A problem with traditional ice rinks that not many consider is the environmental impact. From indoor air quality to single-use structures, a mobile synthetic ice rink can provide solutions.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has confirmed the concerns of indoor air quality in traditional ice rinks. The problem is with the equipment used to resurface the ice releasing carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and particulate matter (PM) into the air.

Without proper ventilation, these can accumulate to dangerous levels for your customers and the environment. Mobile ice skating rinks using synthetic ice do not use resurfacing equipment. Your customers and your business do not have to worry about these emissions.

Also, a mobile synthetic ice rink does not require the construction of a permanent building which can result in possible pollution of the site by fuels, paints, solvents, etc.  It also allows the land to be used for more than one type of activity.

Having a safer environment ensures those at your mobile ice rink can have the most fun possible.

Community Involvement

A mobile ice skating rink business created by you will create a fantastic opportunity for you and your community.

The uncomplicated set-up and tear-down of your arena means you can be where your community needs you. This flexibility also allows for versatile land use, environmentally sound practices, and not locking the community into a permanent structure.

A mobile ice rink allows you to set up at multiple locations over time, giving access to more customers.  Older customers or those with children or limited mobility will thank you for giving them an easy to access, and safe, place to enjoy.

On top of this, your business will provide more job options in your community. There will be jobs for people to take tickets and handle rentals.  You may want to hire skating coaches to be available for lessons. Any hospitality options you offer will also need staff and servers to keep the fun flowing!

With all this positive community involvement, your new mobile ice rink is a welcome boon to your community and provides a unique, year-round, entertainment, or practice option.

Your Chance to Succeed!

The benefits of operating your very own mobile ice rink with synthetic tiles are vast! It’s a great business choice with a plethora of revenue options. It’s a safer alternative to traditional ice rinks and will create a healthier and stronger community around you, providing great jobs to others.
