If just thinking about skating has you unconsciously walking in figure eights, it may be time to get back out there on the ice. With today's deal, pay $6 for one open-skate session plus a skate rental at KHS Ice Arena in Anaheim (a $13 value). Whether you're looking to add some new stunts to your repertoire or just trying to stand on two blades, five weeks of figure-skating school for $30 should do the trick (a $60 value). Held every Sunday, these classes are divided by age and skill level -- so you can expect focused, personal instruction to help you meet your goals. Using the Ice Skating Institute's building block system, KHS's talented instructors will help you progressively develop your skills, taking you from being a triple klutz to executing the perfect triple Lutz.

Extreme Ice Center has some fun deals on their website:

I like the "Free Rental Skates if you sing "Rain, Rain Go Away"  Apparently, the storms in Charlotte, NC are pretty wild and they're expected to have rain for several days.

Go to the Factory Polar Ice House in Wake Forest, NC and say the phrase "Beat the Heat."  If the local temps are 95° or higher, you'll get buy-one-get-one-free admission to the public session.  (Rental skates are extra)

The Ice Ranch in Littleton, CO has a groupon deal today: $20 public skate for four or $30-$45 skating lessons.

http://www.groupon.com/deals/the-ice-ranch-denver-1

The author should get a gold star for creative writing:

Quote
If woolly mammoths had mastered the triple Lutz, they would've made it out of the Ice Age and into the Bronze Age, if not the Silver or Gold Age. Ensure your long-term survival with today's Groupon to The Ice Ranch, located in Littleton.

<snip>

Ice slicers try out their frictionless feet during instructional courses and recreational skate sessions at The Ice Ranch’s new skating facility. Four friends or one giant tarantula can strap on the four pairs of bladed boots and glide across the ice for up to two hours at a time during the public skate sessions, which are scheduled at different times throughout the week. All ages can participate in the 30-minute Learn to Skate class, during which skaters can acquire the skills needed to maintain their balance while sashaying atop frozen ponds. During the one-hour Learn to Play Hockey class, instructors tutor prospective wings and enforcers of all ages in skating, puck control, passing, and shooting. Although skate rentals are included in enrollment, students are responsible for supplying their own hockey equipment and fans.

I always wanted to take a giant tarantula ice skating.  I suspect the author is a hockey player/fan, lol.

This is what my semi-local one said:
Quote
Public open skate allows gold-medal-seeking ice masters to practice triple axels, camel spins, and quintuple belly flops while less-experienced gliders focus on basic principles, such as staying upright and gracefully colliding with the wall. This deal includes skate rental for those who do not own skates or who were born with feet instead of leg-blades.

My question though: If I buy the groupon, can I practice camel spins, because it says I can?  It's against the rink rules to do them on publics.  False advertising!

I think they have disclaimers about the rink having the final say on everything.  Sorry.

Groupon deal for Funtabulous in Corpus Christi, TX:

http://livingsocial.com/deals/89623-two-hours-of-ice-skating

WARNING: This rink has a synthetic skating surface!

Quote
No sub-freezing temperatures necessary: This indoor rink uses synthetic ice technology to let patrons skate to their hearts' content no matter the weather. Despite its name, synthetic ice provides a completely realistic experience, allowing skaters to glide and drift as if they were doing figure eights on a New England pond in the middle of January.

Cockburn Ice Arena
Perth, Australia

Public Session Ice Skating Entry and Boot Hire

Quote
Did you know that more than 1.5 million people in Australia lace up ice skates each year? Why don't you join them with this offer for $10 entry including skate hire (usually $20) at Perth's largest ice rink, Cockburn Ice Arena. Come along to any public session and skate away to the latest hits brought to you by the coolest rink DJs. And if you're not so confident on your blades, join one of the school holiday demos where you learn how to skate forwards, backwards, turn, fall down, get up and, most importantly, stop. There's a cafeteria where you can nibble on a snack or grab a coffee if you need a break and it's perfect for children and adults. This is a deal where you won't be on thin ice.
