- Snow Much Fun At The Rink
Nothing says romantic (and definitely a bit of fun) more than ice skating to kick off the cozy season. Pretend you’re in a holiday Hallmark movie with this activity that is sure to bring the both of you closer. Many people associate ice skating with romance. You can imagine the two people gliding as well as they can. One falls in slow motion… The other one is laughing, but with loving eyes that see the other as a little vulnerable. If you’re on a first date, it’s an even better idea as it gives you both a shared activity to avoid the awkwardness that comes with every first date. It’s a fantastic way to break the ice (pun intended.)
For those interested, from 20 – 26 Dec, The Rink is selling tickets for their Christmas Package.
🎄2hr Skating Admission with Skates Rental at $28 per pax
🎄Snowfall on Ice (last 5 minutes before the end of the session)
🎄The Rink Christmas Limited Edition Mask
