A roller rink is opening inside the World Trade Center’s Oculus this month. “Winter Whirl” invites skaters of all ages to skate inside the Lower Manhattan shopping mall and underneath the architecturally stunning skylight designed by Santiago Calatrava. The rink will open for the season on Friday, November 24, and operate through late January.
Skaters will be able to snap photos, make lasting holiday memories, and enjoy a fun skating experience with the backdrop of live music.
“The Winter Whirl roller rink offers visitors a holiday experience like never before, paired with world-class shopping, dining and live music performances,” Diana Grasso, Vice President of Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, said.
“We’re thrilled to introduce this skating experience and look forward to welcoming all New Yorkers and visitors from across the world to the Shops at the Oculus for festive skating and creating cherished memories this holiday season.”
Winter Whirl will be open from Wednesdays through Sundays from Friday, November 24 through late January from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., with the last admission at 9 p.m. On Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, the rink will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., with the last admission at 5 p.m.
