Fans of curler skating, amusing at-the-airport sports, and the landmark TWA Hotel at JFK Airport (i.e.: anybody) will be looking ahead to the go back of the hotel’s unfashionable-style curler skating rink.
The Roll-A-Rama on the Runway Rink opens for the season on April 15.
The checkered rink is placed with the aid of the hotel’s 1958 Lockheed Constellation “Connie” aircraft/cocktail lounge and is made up of two,668 tiles.
The rink will open to the general public on weekends most effective, weather allowing, through November 22.
Hours for skating might be Fridays from 4 to 8 PM and Saturdays and Sundays from 12 to 8 PM.
50-minute skate classes will fee $20 for adults and $16 for kids below 12. The rate includes use of a couple of antique-fashion 4-wheeled “quad skates” (patented in 1863).
If you've got your own curler skates, you're welcome to carry them along.
If you’re making plans to go, notice that admission to the rink can most effective be purchased by means of credit score card and is first-come, first-served; no advance tickets are available.
And due to the fact that’s the manner they roll, the TWA Hotel group shared some notable curler skating factoids. Note that you could burn 350 calories in an hour of roller skating, so move beforehand and feature a unfashionable cocktail inside the Connie.
