SUNRISE, Fla. - The Florida Panthers and Hoffman's Chocolates in Greenacres, FL announced today they will partner to host their 'Hockey Holidays Ice Rink,' an outdoor ice-skating rink at the Hoffman's Chocolate factory during the holiday season.
The Panthers and Hoffman's Chocolates in Greenacres have collaborated to create a 2,400 square foot outdoor skating rink alongside of Hoffman's Chocolates 29th Annual Winter Wonderland holiday display.
"We're excited to collaborate with Hoffman's Chocolates again this year to create the Holidays Ice Rink for the third year in a row at their Winter Wonderland in Greenacres," said Panthers Chief Operating Officer Sean McCaffrey. "The Panthers are dedicated to introducing ice skating and the game of hockey to communities in the tri-county area and this gives families the opportunity to ice skate outside during the holiday season."
The outdoor holiday rink will officially open on Nov. 16 and the hours of operation will be: Monday, Wednesday through Friday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m and Saturday through Sunday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. The rink will be closed on all Tuesdays, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The rink will run through Dec. 30, 2019.
The outdoor rink will be fully covered by a tent. The temperature in the rink will be controlled with chillers to keep the ice cool below 32 degrees and will be constantly shaved and replenished to provide the best skating experience for guests.
General admission tickets are $15 including skate rentals, group admission (10+ skaters) is $13, military and first responders are $10 (Valid ID required). A portion of the proceeds of each ticket sold will go back to the Florida Panthers Foundation.
