The goal of the New York Islanders is to have the ability to reach out and touch the lives of people throughout the community. The Islanders strive to involve the fans interactively, making them become better involved with the organization. The New York Islanders I.C.E. Tour is an interactive NHL theme park geared towards achieving this goal each time they step foot in the community. The tour reaches out to local schools, community festivals, hockey rinks, charity events, and neighborhoods. The objective of the I.C.E. tour is to make Long Islanders know they are fundamentally part of the Islanders community 365 days of the year, while keeping the game of hockey alive all year long.
