Grab your skates kids, because the iconic ice rink at The Rockefeller Center is reopen for business today! This year The Rink at Rockefeller Center is celebrating its 80th year of operation (it opened on Christmas Day in 1936), and to mark the occasion the center held a grand opening ribbon-cutting ceremony this morning with figure skater and Olympic silver medalist Sasha Cohen. While this mid-60s sweater weather may not feel quite as festive as that Christmastime nip, hitting the ice now does have a number of advantages—namely not having to bundle up, and not having to fight the lines. More than a quarter-million skaters are anticipated to visit the rink this year.

General admission to the rink is on a first-come, first-serve basis and prices ranges from $25 to $32 depending on what day you go; a ticket grants you an hour and a half access to the ice. The rink is open seven days a week from 8:30 a.m–midnight. If you’re not interested in queuing up, you can also make reservations to skate through the VIP Igloo or one of the center’s other prepaid packages.
