It’s Friday night. The lights go dim and colorful spotlights light up the rink. The music is playing, and my date and I are ready to have a fun night out. The Ice World in Abingdon is not the most romantic setting, but it is a bright and playful place to go on a date.

When looking to go out individually with your date or with friends, ice skating can definitely provide a fun day or night out. It was a great activity and helped me get to know my date a little bit more by giving us the chance to spend time together and talk. It might have been a little cold, but that made the perfect climate for holding hands as we skated around the rink. When it got too cold, we went out of the rink to their concession stand and bought some of their hot chocolate.

When we went, the admission price for public skating was $8.50 per person and $3 for skate rentals. It might be a little bit more expensive than other date activities, but the experience of being able to go out on a lively and active date is worth the expense. I have always found Ice World a great place to go to for ice skating. I used to take figure skating lessons there, and the employees are always kind and wanting to help. Overall, going to Ice World for date night was wonderful and I would love to do it again. One of the only problems is whether or not you’ll be able to stand up on your skates.
