How to Upgrade Your Skating Experience

The Rink at Bank of America Winter Village may be NYC's only free public ice skating rink, but that doesn't mean you can't make it into a deluxe experience! We've already told you how to be a savvy skater, so save that leftover change for a skating experience fit for an ice queen! Here are some ways you can take your time at Winter Village to the next level.

Get your skates sharpened
If you're bringing your own skates from home, stop by our Skate Sharpening station in the Skating Pavilion to get them in tip-top shape for The Rink. Sharp blades give a smoother and safer ride.

FastPass the line
If you're in a rush, or just want to cram as much skating as you can into your lunch hour, consider purchasing a FastPass (available online or at the FastPass booth visible on our map). With FastPass, you get VIP admission (which means you get to skip the line!), skate rental, and bag check services for one person. 
If you're coming with your family or a group of 4 friends, check out the FastPass Family 4 Pack. With this multi-person pass, all 4 people get VIP admission, skate rentals, bag check services, and a cup of hot chocolate. 
Be a season-long skater
Want to take as much advantage of The Rink as possible this season? The Season Pass allows you to get VIP treatment every time you come to Winter Village. Season Pass holders receive season-long FastPass access, 10% off at Ice Bites and Parka Lounge private parties, bag check service and 5 VIP Guest Vouchers. Season Passes are available with rentals included or without rentals included, for those of you who want to bring your own skates.

Check your bag
Leave your bag with our secure bag service while you're out on the ice. For a fee, we offer a small bag check option, suitable for 1-3 people, and a large bag check option, best for 3-5 people.

Learn to skate
Whether you're new to the ice or just want to sharpen your skills, our coaches are available for private, semi-private, an group lessons for skaters of all ages. Skating lessons are the perfect way to start out your time on the ice - after the lesson is over, show off your new skills!
Grab a cocktail with a view
After you're done skating, why not stop by Celsius for a cocktail? Celsius offers many different kinds of dining experiences - from sitting on the second floor overlooking the rink to lounging downstairs while warming up next some toasty heaters. After a day of skating and shopping, Celsius is the best place to rest those tired legs and grab a delicious drink or meal.
