Reserve Your Skate Online

Skip the line at The Rink by using Reserve Skate to secure a date and time.

Bank of America Winter Village opens on Saturday, October 28, kicking off four months of browsing for gifts at the Holiday Shops, enjoying a drink and a bite to eat at Public Fare, and, of course, skating at The Rink

The Rink is one of the busiest patches of ice on the planet, and sometimes the wait to get on the ice can be a bit long. If you love coming to The Rink but don’t like to wait, we’ve got the perfect solution: Reserve Skate lets you select the date and time for your outing, ensuring instant access.

Available for dates during the peak of the season (mid-November through the first week of January), Reserve Skate can be purchased online well in advance, so all you have to do is show up at your chosen time and go to the head of the line. The price includes priority VIP admission and skate rental.

Once the season starts, you can also purchase Express Skate once you get to the park. Just go to the ticket windows on The Deck to purchase your pass, good for expedited admission and skate rental. If you have questions about Express Skate or Reserve Skate, email us at
