    It is quite expensive but u have to do it at least once. If u have ur own skates I suggest u use those that way u save urself skate hire monies. Bring ur own lock as well for the lockers.

    It's truly a gift to have an ice rink in Central Park surrounded by skyscrapers. The rent the skates if you don't have them and there's no limit in time: you can skate until the rink is close.

    Make sure you stop at the bank first, they only accept cash! Try and get there at the start of the session for the nicest ice.

    Ice skating in Central Park, a true NY holiday experience. Not as touristy as Rockefeller Center or Bryant Park rinks and has way more space. Best to visit in November when the trees are still alive

    An awesome New York City winter experience, but expect to wait in a long line and skate to no Holiday music! There's no timed entry as we got in an hour after our purchased time slot.

    A good stop if you're touring the park. The rental skates are complete garbage but the rest of the experience is fun.

    Who doesn't love a fun time skating on ice? Enjoy some breathtaking views of Manhattan's skyscrapers while skating along one of the largest rinks in Manhattan!

    Best ice rink in NYC!!! If you have ice skates be sure to bring them. The ones here are really really uncomfortable and the bottom of your foot will ache like never before.

    It's more than a rink, it's a breathtaking view. Ringling Bro's Grandma recommends the views here - forget the skates and just look around. A must on anyone's to-do list. Read more

    If you are just going there for fun and don't know to skate, just buy one visit for $5 and share with the other person. Nobody notices.

    Open until 11pm on Fridays & Saturdays, this is the perfect way to spend an evening on the Upper East Side after a light dinner at Serafina.

    Nice on paper, a zoo in person. Good for a few a few spins and some Central Park pics, but that's about it. Also cash only.

    Enjoy a couple rings around the rink and spend the day in Central Park. Don't leave without a tasty cup of cocoa and be sure to bundle up!

    Yellow doggie for $25 but there’s nothing you can do if you’re with kids.

    Skating during the day is beautiful but... you will have to deal with all the children who do not have traffic notions. ;)

    You can get your skates sharpened in the main office, but the guy leaves at 7pm, so give yourself enough time!

    Go early on a weekday! Avoid the ice cleaning times, you'll be waiting 30 mins

    Go ice-skating in the wintertime. It almost feels like being in the great outdoors, but with a little bit of the NYC skyline peeking in through the trees. Love it!
