Make your way to the iconic Rockefeller Center Ice Rink, the centerpiece of most people's wintry visions of NYC: twinkling lights, a golden statute and whirling skaters. With this Viator VIP experience, you'll experience this popular seasonal activity, minus the crowds and the long wait.
Choose your start time and, upon your arrival, be whisked in to the heated VIP chalet. Sip hot chocolate and munch on cookies as you wait for your turn to take the ice. Pick up your included rental skates and, when it's time, a skate concierge will help your party into their skates. First-timers can then take advantage of a short lesson on how to turn, twirl and stop.
Take in the ambiance as you glide around the rink, admire the tree's twinkling lights and their reflection on the golden statue of Prometheus. If you get chilly or tired, head back to the VIP warming hut for a break at any time.
Opt to add a lunch or dinner at the onsite Rock Center Café while you watch the skaters whirl around the rink below. See the 3-course sample menu in the Itinerary section below.
