Ice skating on The Rink under the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree is one of New York City's quintessential winter activities. From ice skating lessons to special events, The Rink sets the perfect scene for every occasion – a tradition that has never failed to delight.

Legend has it that the idea for The Rink was inspired by a Depression-era skate salesman who demonstrated his product by skating on the frozen water of the Rockefeller Center fountain. The Rink, or “skating pond” as it was first known, officially opened on Christmas Day 1936.

Originally planned as a temporary exhibit, The Rink was so popular it became a permanent addition, with the Prometheus Statue and the Christmas Tree providing one of the most nostalgic backdrops in the world.

Present your smartphone voucher at the Rink Box Office located on Rockefeller Plaza, between 50th and 49th Streets.

VIP skating in old worn-out shoes on a dull ice rink under the famous christmas tree for too much money. Left without the included hot chocolate after waiting for more then 15 minutes. There are better places for ice skating in NY. Bur I've dreamed of this experience for many years.
