Ice Rinks In Flordia
« on: January 18, 2018, 11:29:25 AM »
I will be staying in Flordia next winter and I was wondering where are the rinks that adults skate at?

I enjoyed skating with adults and I hope I can get some great places to go.

Thanks

That's a broad question.

Where in Florida?

RDV Ice Den - Orlando
Ice Factory of Central Florida - Kissimmee
Space Coast Ice Plex - Melbourne
Jacksonville Ice and Sportsplex - Daytona
Panthers Ice Den - Coral Springs (near Ft. Lauderdale)
Ellenton Ice and Sports Complex - Ellenton Florida
Daytona Ice Arena - Daytona Beach
Ice Sports Forum - Tampa

There are more but I've never skated at them.

I skate primarily at RDV which has a decent amount of adults. I've heard Ellenton does as well, and the rink in Tampa, but I don't know which one because there are three in that area.

Thanks for the input.  I think we will be in the Tampa area next winter.

If you are okay with the mall vibe, there’s a 2/3 size rink at the mall in Countryside. They used to have a pretty active group of adult skaters.

I've skated twice at the Clearwater Ice Arena (up the street from the airport, on Icot Blvd).  Both times (once early morning and once late in the afternoon) on lightly populated publics while I was down in St. Pete for a sailboat regatta.  Can't really comment on whether or not it's adult friendly.  I had no problems.  At one point the rink was undergoing major structural renovations and because of that getting into the building's lobby was a PITA but I suspect that's finished by now.  I don't take my skates traveling anymore 'cause my wife doesn't like the prospect of driving a 1000 miles home, towing a boat trailer, if I fall and break something!
