Transformed from a 167,000 gallon lagoon swimming pool in the summer, this ice skating rink at the RiverWalk Resort is the first of its kind in the country. Amazingly, under the surface of this perfect sheet of ice is a complex system of tubes that carry super-cooled glycol that ensures the most extraordinary ice skating experience for our guests.
But, that's just the engineering. What we care more about are the smiles that this blend of art and science is bringing to adults and children alike who are re-discovering their love for all things frozen.
Guests of RiverWalk can bring (or rent on site) their ice skates and head out the back door to bring their skating fantasies to life. Swirling around the fire cauldron and glaring into the other guests swimming in the outdoor pool is something you cannot experience anywhere else.
As if this was not enough, throughout the season, RiverWalk hosts a number of shows to entertain everyone. If you've seen professional skaters, artfully demonstrating their skills to music and lights... then you can imagine what it might be like at the foot of Loon Mountain, outdoors with the snow falling and the sleigh riders going by. Yep, its magical, and its all what makes staying at RiverWalk extraordinary.
