Cool ice rink. TWA at JFK

Lace up and speed skate over to JFK — our frozen tarmac awaits!

Freeze all plans! The TWA Hotel will open the Runway Rink — a one-of-a-kind ice skating experience — on November 30. Visitors and guests can take a spin on the tarmac around the hotel's 1958 Lockheed Constellation Connie airplane (now a cocktail lounge) and then watch an ice skating spectacular! The custom 56-by-44-foot Runway Rink (made with good old frozen NYC tap water) will operate seven days a week through the end of February.

There’s lutz to love beyond lacing up: A snow-stopping skating show will take spectators on an Arctic expedition without leaving New York City’s tundra. The show's theme takes inspiration from our Connie’s history: after retiring from TWA, tail number N8083H spent time as an Alaskan bush plane dropping supplies in the Prudhoe Bay!

The forecast also calls for frosty beers, Sno-Caps candy and an array of other snacks and beverages. Those looking to warm up can wrap themselves in The TWA Shop's cozy new winter accessories — including knit hats and scarves — which will be sold both at the rink and online.

Admission is $15; $10 for kids under 12. Ice skates can be rented for $10 (kids under 12 rent for $8). Skating aids for children are available.

 

The Runway Rink

Monday through Thursday from 4 PM to 9 PM

Friday from 4 PM to 10 PM

Saturday and Sunday from 10 AM to 10 PM

I remember always passing the TWA terminal when I was a kid. It always felt so magical and had a flying feel to it.

Does the hotel (or somewhere nearby) offer free parking, or can you get validated if you skate?

No.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
