Spice Up Your Special Event

Add a little skating fun to your next promotion or special event with a temporary synthetic ice rink. Here are a few theme options that are sure to blow your customers away.

Winter Wonderland Rinks

Winter Wonderland

No matter the time of year, people love to experience the wonder of snow and ice. If the cold part is left out, even better.

Turn your next event into a glittery winter wonderland. Go all out with fake snow. Offer delicious frozen treats and snow cones. You can even have white cotton candy.

Decorate with fancy fake icicles and use white tablecloths and decorations. Your centerpiece, though, will be your fabulous synthetic ice rink.

The joy on the faces of your customers and guests will be all the proof you need to know that you made the right decision.

Christmas in July

…or August, or May, or whenever!

Bring a little Christmas cheer to your next gathering. You can buy synthetic Christmas trees or even make them from paper or wire. If one of your employees is game, have him or her dress up as Santa and allow the kids to express their Christmas wishes early.

You can serve hot chocolate and hot apple cider. Decorate everything with green and red to give it the right festive feel.

You can even name your temporary rink the North Pole for even more fun. The kids, both big and little, will love it!

Skating Under the Stars

One way to kick your event up a notch is by having it at night. Imagine a well-lit and fabulous outdoor setting with a synthetic rink at the center. Your guests and customers will lose themselves in the whimsy as they skate hand in hand.

Add even more magic with strings of twinkle lights overhead. To extend the fun, consider using a projector to stream your favorite winter movies; bonus points if they are skating-themed.

Adults Only

Skating with the family is great, but sometimes moms and dads need a little break. What better way to bring your customers to you, without the kids, than an adults-only event.
