In late November Chill opened The Rink at MGM Springfield MA with a launch event featuring special guest, US National Champion, World & Olympic medalist, Nancy Kerrigan, an event which helped kick things off with large crowds each weekend throughout December.
Every week, we also hosted a Local Skater Showcase featuring performances by area amateur figure skaters. The opportunity was an excellent experience for these young skaters who braved the cold air and outdoor conditions to perform for guests, onlookers and passerby. The skaters enjoyed the experience to feel like a star for a day and each met the challenge like a pro.
The Rink is always available for Private Rentals, and it seems no holiday season is complete without a proposal. Indeed MGM Springfield‘s historic location, and our beautiful rink design made for the perfect proposal setting for one happy couple who rented the rink for this special occasion. Thankfully we got to add another post to our #shesaidyes.
After the New Year the temperature dropped and so we hope to turn it up with the addition of professional Skating Entertainment, starring an ensemble cast of four pro skaters. Together they perform twice a day, three nights a week. Chill After Dark is a 10-15 min segment based on the laws of attraction, just in time for the Valentine seaon. The Entertainment is offered in conjunction with our Fantasy Skate Camps, and private VIP lessons, and will continue through February and into March.
